Search First® Website Grows Company's National SEO by 51%

Captivate expanded Window Film Depot's national web presence, greatly improving their digital impact through a holistic marketing strategy.

Key Objectives

Grow National SEO Visibility

Improve Website UX

Increase Lead Generation

Highlight #1 Volume Status

The Project Background

Window Film Depot (WFD) is America’s number one volume commercial window film installer, headquartered in Atlanta. They are not only the nation’s leading 3M Window Film dealer for product sales and installation, but carry a vast inventory of other product solutions for window and glass treatments.

WFD needed a new website to improve its organic search visibility and lead acquisition funnel. By applying our Search First® methodology, Captivate leveraged keyword data, search trends, and user behavior modeling to build WFD a beautiful, SEO-friendly website. With the site, WFD would actualize its digital marketing objectives and increase their bottom line.

Captivate Project Background

The Project Challenge

WFD needed a full-blown website and SEO revamp. To start, we planned to redesign the brand’s website to enhance usability, SEO performance, and conversions. Then, we executed an ongoing content strategy to support SEO, social media marketing, and brand positioning.

To put it another way, we wanted to access WFD’s wide market. Our team sought to improve organic search visibility and traffic across over 40 different product categories, six market segments, and 130 cities in all 50 states. By the campaign’s end, WFD needed to be positioned as a nationally-recognized dealer and installer for 3M™ Window Films — as well as specialized products like DefenseLite™, BulletShield™, and other brands.

Key Issues

Outdated Website UX

Diverse Product Offerings

No Cohesive Content Strategy

No Analytics Goal Tagging

The ROI Focused Solution

Captivate created a holistic digital strategy for Window Film Depot. It was built upon a foundation of keyword research, trend analysis, competitive review, and search exploration.

We developed a UI and UX framework focused on key conversion goals, user engagement, and content optimization, and then organized an SEO-friendly sitemap, targeting each product category and market segment.

Then, our creative team produced two blogs per month. These high-quality posts earned organic backlinks, positioning WFD as a thought leader in its field. Moreover, we conducted ongoing outreach to build relationships with prominent publishers, influencers, and market leaders who could help amplify WFD’s brand.

This combination of technical innovation and creative services Captivate’s specialty. We make the perfect cocktail for successful digital marketing campaigns.
