Core Extractions received their license to sell CBD in December 2018. Their primary goal to drive sales was via an ecommerce website and organic search traffic. At that time, there were already dozens of well established CBD brands that dominated search engine rankings, and keyword research was difficult to perform as Google was not providing any data on cannabis search volume at the time. Starting with a brand new domain name with 0 domain authority, it would be a challenge to outrank these well established brands.
My role was to build the website and drive sales via organic traffic. I was to design a custom Wordpress template that aligned with the company's brand and implement the payment gateway and checkout process.
In addition to web design and development, I was also responsible for driving the organic traffic needed to hit sales targets. To do this I conducted detailed keyword research for the product line, developed a keyword strategy and wrote content for all website pages around this strategy.
After launch, I would then perform a 6 month SEO campaign to improve domain authority, grow organic traffic, and drive online sales. This SEO campaign included:
SEO,Content Marketing,Web Development,Web Development,Branding,Web Development
Health & Wellness

The brand faced several tough periods during the ups and downs of the pandemic, at times also overlapping with the natural seasonality of its vertical.
They were again facing a drop in sales and ROAS and I was working on a strategy to improve their ROAS.
