A new website
from the depths
A low online presence and awkward website kept them sunk for too long. Page clicks were sending visitors away to external tide and weather sources, and current visitors were not fully engaged even if they wanted to be.
Deep Bay Marina needed to attract customers and let them know they were an alternative marina to those in nearby Nanaimo and Oceanside. Searching for “Deep Bay Marina” on Google still kept you searching because they were not among the first few results.
We needed to increase their virtual presence, update their website to answer questions people have been searching for, and amp up the quality of content provided. Their old website had information for tides and weather, but they sent visitors away to external sources so this had to be fixed.
Deep Bay is a prime choice for a marina, so they just needed to let more people know what great services they actually have to offer.
Following up a few months later…
Leads and organic keyword rankings get boosted
A few months after the launch of the new website, we checked in to see how well Deep Bay Marina was doing. The results look great!
The new moorage request forms now offer a method to measure leads and applications. This simple change boosted visitor engagement and business for the marina. Annual and transient moorage requests starting pouring in once these forms went live. A win-win for visitors and the marina.
Deep Bay Marina was almost nonexistent in the virtual world, and now they rank for over 20 keyword phrases (up from 4). There are also growing trends for website traffic and backlinks. They are off to a great start and are still sailing on high winds.
