LawnStarter, despite having a solid operational base and a user-friendly interface, found itself struggling to outshine competitors in organic search results, which is a crucial channel for new user acquisition.
One of the core challenges was the absence of robust content marketing strategies, that resulted in a deficiency of high-quality, linkable content. This lack of content impeded the improvement of SERP rankings for targeted keywords and impacted the generation of organic traffic, an essential component of the company’s customer acquisition and retention efforts.
