Through OAO the client committed to building stronger consumer relationships by investing in organic search performance and a content hub within its domain.


Through our long-term partnership, the brand achieved:



Achieved 8.5X monthly ROI through non-branded search queries.


% Lower CPA

Lowered monthly cost per acquisition through non-branded search by 62.5%.



% Revenue

Increased monthly revenue by 279.7% through non-branded organic traffic.

The Challenge

Direct competitors, content publishers, and affiliates were surpassing our client in Google market share. As a result, the brand was missing out on critical consumer connection opportunities, substantial traffic, and potential revenue growth.

The Solution

To strengthen consumer relationships and increase market share, Terakeet worked with the brand to improve the performance of product pages and meet consumer needs through informational content. These assets would be purpose-built to meet the real needs of their audience as they searched for solutions online.

Our Approach

Investing in owned assets

Terakeet partnered with the brand to build consumer relationships, improve brand authority, and grow online visibility through valuable content.

By investing in owned assets within the brand’s domain, they connected with their target audience earlier and more often throughout the buyer’s journey. After publishing a variety of informative top-of-funnel content, the brand positioned itself as a trusted resource in the eyewear and eye care space.

The brand is also now able to…

  • Reach millions of consumers as they seek solutions at multiple customer journey stages.
  • Retain control and ownership over performance marketing assets.
  • Provide value to consumers and establish long-term brand equity.


Organic Search Terms

Owned assets within the content hub rank for 88,171 Google search terms — giving the brand thousands of monthly opportunities to connect with customers as they search for products and solutions.

More Results

Increased traffic across product categories

In addition to producing educational content for a content hub, Terakeet continued optimization strategies to connect and convert consumers across four key product categories.

Through continued optimization of the brand’s assets, Terakeet’s OAO strategies helped drive thousands of monthly transactions and revenue.
