In a world that moves at the speed of a click, Fitlife Foods, a leading meal prep company with a heart for health, faced the challenge of standing out in the digital crowd. With eleven locations across Florida and one in Georgia, Fitlife Foods was on a mission to enhance its local search performance, bringing healthy and convenient meals to the forefront of the online marketplace.
Not only did online traffic need to increase, but increased visibility for the brick-and-mortar locations as well. With valuable on-site features for customers, such as their wellness program and in-store meal pickup options, we needed to drive leads to make the trip in-store just as much as placing online orders.
The Challenge: Boost Local Visibility
Fitlife Foods needed more than just a meal plan; they needed a strategy to boost their local visibility and drive targeted traffic to their doors. Enter Digital Neighbor, the digital marketers armed with a comprehensive Local SEO strategy ready to turn this challenge into a success story!
The Solution: A Recipe for Local SEO Success
- Build Out Location Pages: Our team set out to create 12 new location pages featuring individual store hours, team bios, and location-centric written content to reach those very specific groups of buyers.
- On-Page Local SEO Optimizations: Digital Neighbor aimed to sprinkle some SEO magic on Fitlife Foods’ website, making it a magnet for search engines and hungry customers alike. Some of these tactics included:
- Optimizing the website’s title tags and meta descriptions
- Optimizing the NAP (Name, Address, Phone number)
- Main Location Page & Interactive Map Implementation: An interactive map was added to the main page to guide customers to the nearest Fitlife Foods haven. Because convenience is key.
- Local Listings & Citation Campaign: Digital Neighbor spread the word far and wide, ensuring Fitlife Foods popped up on high-quality and relevant sites.
- Business Descriptions Rewrite: Words matter. Digital Neighbor rewrote Fitlife Foods’ business descriptions, painting a vivid picture of health and convenience.
- Monthly GBP Management: Staying on top is a commitment. Digital Neighbor managed Fitlife Foods’ Google Business Profile every month, ensuring they remained at the forefront of local searches. Some of the items that we collaborated with Fitlife Foods to generate and post regularly were:
- Engaging GBP posts four times a month to keep customers in the know about the latest offerings that Fitlife foods had.
- High-quality images posted twice a month featuring the latest promos and meals that Fitlife was rolling out with each season.
- Q&A’s twice a month to answer any potential questions that customers could have before or after purchasing a Fitlife Foods product.
- Review Strategy: Turning customers into brand ambassadors, Digital Neighbor’s goal was to implement a review strategy that not only increased the number of reviews but also boosted the average rating overall.
