The Challenge

Hansen Land had a real problem… after 6 years+ of achieving some of the highest-ranking SEO results in their industry, their team made the grave decision of having their website re-made internally, and unknowingly lost almost 100% of their high ranking domain authority and keywords over-night. Not realizing the mistake until it was too late, Hansen Land approached Beanstalk! Growth Marketing to help rectify the problem.

The Solution

After careful analysis, the Beanstalk! team put together a 3-phased plan which was then used to re-create a strong & high-performing digital foundation, re-establish their high-ranking SEO, and create new branding & marketing campaigns that would supplement their website traffic & project leads in the meantime while they waited for their organic traffic to increase. The results? Let’s just say that in one recent meeting, the owner of Hansen Land himself said he was happy they made the mistake they made because that mistake led them to us, which in turn is now elevating their results to levels higher than where they were before. See for yourself below.

“We have had the pleasure of dealing with Beanstalk Growth Marketing for the past year and a half. When we first hired them we had just experienced a catastrophic SEO malfunction where we lost 20 years of SEO positioning. Not only have they restored our position far in excess of where we were to begin with, but they have also constructed an overall comprehensive marketing strategy that has increased our reach continually in excess of a million impressions per project.”
