SEO and Online Marketing Strategy for Mark Rogers Photography

March 10th, 2010

Client: Mark Rogers / Mark Rogers Photography

Challenge: Mark, a successful photographer, well-known in the San Francisco Bay Area for his beautiful work with non-profits organizations and local dog rescue groups, was rebuilding his website in WordPress CMS. We consider Mark very technically savvy, as you can see by his self-produced website. Although he had researched on SEO practices, he realized that it was more work than he could juggle as a business owner. Having seen our work and witnessed the results for Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, he called upon us to implement SEO and examine his online marketing strategy.

Switchblade Solution: Because Mark was already quite knowledgeable with online marketing, we could see that his social media strategy was in great shape, so we made sure his SEO was equally effective. We also ensured that his search engine rankings wouldn’t drop as a result of changing his website, only improve steadily with SEO in place. Mark is currently in first place in the Bay List Awards for Best Pet Photographer, which is a testament to his great reputation and marketing.
