Lawrence Ryan Investigations

Lawrence Ryan Investigations (LRI) is based out of Chicago but provides private investigation services nationwide. They have a unique situation where while they need to market so clients can find them, they are in a business that values discretion. Though they do a great job for their clients, the details of their clients' experiences can't be shared the way other business can.

With LRI we did all of the foundational activities relating to their website to ensure it was free of technical errors and optimized for search engines.
After that, we focused on creating educational content because most of their clients have questions and start by trying to solve their problems searching online. The library of educational content we created places LRI as both an expert and a thought leader, driving credibility and engendering trust.

The next key pillar to solidify that trust was driving reviews of customers complimenting the service, even though they can't reveal details. These are the activities we help manage for LRI:

- Web Development
- Content Creation and Blogging
- Social Media
- Review Generation/Management
- Google AdWords
- Conversion Analytics and Optimization

Increased website traffic by 1046%

Total Monthly Leads

Increased overall leads by 349%
