Understanding Fenix Pest Control, Inc.’s Brand Goals

Fenix was a brand new pest control service and so was unheard of in the state of Iowa.  Needing a hand with establishing and building their brand locally online, Fenix intended on showing their customers exactly what set themselves apart from both big box and similar, smaller pest service competitors.

Having worked rigorously with the owner of Fenix, Lance Bodily, we had first hand knowledge on exactly what his customers were looking for, and aside from pest control, that was absolute trust in the pest control service they chose to use to not literally and metaphorically bite them in the butt further down the line due to confusing services and convoluted contracts and agreements.

How We Helped Fenix Pest Control, Inc.’s With SEO

When someone searches for pest control on a searche engine like Google, our data showed most searches included their city plus the pest problem they were dealing with. That in mind, we started off generating content targeting every single city serviced by Fenix to ensure search engines knew exactly what cities Fenix operated in to help rank their website on a grand scale.

Targeted keyphrases included “pest control Iowa, pest prevention Dubuque, pest inspection Davenport” to name just a few with careful note not to canabalize our own content with overlapping content, but instead interlinking content to help website navigation for both site traffic and search engine crawlers.

Once covered, our keyword research further indicated both what pest and what type of pest services were sought out specifically in different cities, be it “mice prevention Iowa City” or “bed bug removal Ankeny”.  After targeting popular keywords and keyphrases, we moved onto both more obscure target keywords/keyphrases and easy low hanging fruit that had little to no competition to further bolster related keywords that would solidify brand recognition over time as well as contribute to overall leads and website traffic.

We’ve since continued this effort into 2022 of providing useful content to searches that are looking for information rather than a transaction allowing use to generate even more traffic to the website to be used as a resource for knowledge as well as a service. In doing so, we’re able to tackle many more topics than keywords or keyphrases alone which will help as search engines begin ranking for voice search and how helpful a site is to the query that brought them there in the first place.
