Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

We used the keyword research and Site Map to design an ‘SEO Silo’ structure for the site. We targeted the keyword ‘ecuador beachfront real estate’ as the main keyword with other relevant keywords in a theme. This builds Google ranking power into the site.

Using the brand messages and other text content from earlier stages, we sequenced the messages for each page to tell their story clearly, to be easy to read, and guide the visitor down the page to contact CLE - get on a newsletter list - or start a chat.

Visual Brand Design

They had existing logo candidates for both sites. We discussed how the logos could fit with the new brand strategies. We used the final logo designs as guides to choosing fonts, colors, and other visual themes that matched each brand.

Custom Site Coding

We used the Elementor Page Builder and GeneratePress theme to custom build the new site to match our strategy, brand and content plans. The challenge was building two navigation systems that would work without causing confusion.

They began receiving compliments on the beautiful new website and interested prospects began contacting them within the first month.

Using strategy we developed from a thorough Keyword & Competitor Research – we targeted keywords that their best prospects are using in their market to find properties like theirs.  The Coastal Living Ecuador site recently hit Google Page #1 for one of their most important keywords and is quickly rising up the ranks for other targeted keywords every month.

Coastal Living Ecuador has kept us on the team with an ongoing Care Plan retainer agreement. They’ve also hired us to expand the website with additional sections and pages as they add new properties to sell.
