SEO Retainers: BOOST Your Organic Search Visibility

A custom-tailored monthly SEO retainer focused on growing your business

Our approach to SEO retainers

Search engine optimization (SEO)  is a vital, ever-evolving part of your marketing mix and it’s critical that you work with the right partner to get the traffic and revenue results you need. At Transistor, we’ve developed a custom program to help our clients exceed their goals using our Blueprint for Outstanding Organic Search Tactics (BOOST) system. Our monthly SEO retainers are a distinctive blend of strategic planning, ongoing maintenance, and targeted campaigns, all designed to deliver your business the right traffic. Unlike basic SEO packages, BOOST SEO is tailored to each client, incorporating expert guidance, detailed technical analysis, precise keyword research, site-wide optimizations, continuous rank tracking, and insightful reporting. This multifaceted approach ensures not just growth but sustainable progress for your brand and revenue.

At Transistor we also know that some of our partners are looking for basic SEO support without the frills. We also provide options and pricing for standard SEO services without the extra support that BOOST can provide. The basic packages can be a great way to dip your toe into monthly SEO support. Pricing and differentiation of our packages can be found later on this page.

Get Results Choosing Transistor for Your SEO Retainer

At Transistor, we value long-term partnerships with our clients, offering strategies tailored to your unique business goals. With an extensive portfolio of successful campaigns, we have helped businesses of all sizes achieve their SEO objectives. Our case studies demonstrate the lasting impact we’ve had on our clients’ online presence.

114% Increase in Organic Revenue: eCommerce Hardware Retailer

In the competitive home improvement market, where every screw, hammer, and power tool vies for online visibility, our client faced a significant challenge: a fragmented digital presence. As a hardware store co-op, each member store operated its own individual website. This fragmentation led to inconsistent branding, varied customer experiences, and inefficient marketing efforts. The lack of consolidation resulted in scattered traffic, diminished visibility, and difficulty in establishing a strong, unified online identity.

In addition to supporting the site migration, we worked to drive organic traffic and revenue through engaging content and product optimizations. From delivering expert advice to seasoned DIY enthusiasts to guiding novices through home repairs, our content effectively drove traffic to the site while highlighting the client’s key products.

Additionally, we optimized department and product pages to align with the client’s revenue goals. Taking a comprehensive approach to categories like outdoor living and lawn and garden, we ensured connectivity between pages, making them easily discoverable by both users and search engines. With our client’s optimized online presence, customers can effortlessly find what they need, whether they’re revamping their outdoor space or tackling indoor DIY projects.

100% Increase in Organic Leads: Sustainable Energy as a Service

This client sought our expertise in SEO to strengthen their digital presence and gain insights into the new (to them) realm of digital marketing. They needed a strategic partner to help them develop a deeper understanding of their target market, both online and offline. As that partner, we took on the responsibility of guiding their search strategy and targeting efforts, focusing on reaching the discerning B2B audience crucial for the growth of their energy solutions.

Early on in our engagement, we honed in on about five critical keywords, such as “sustainable energy as a service,” which would remain a consistent focus throughout our campaigns. We used topic clustering and keyword mapping to build on these core keywords, helping the client develop more long-form content that was highly relevant to their target topics and ideal customer.
When we began this process, the client didn’t rank for any of the key topics we were targeting. Less than a year into our engagement, we now rank on page one for four out of the five terms, with “sustainable energy as a service” ranking at #2.
