Overland is a classic luxury brand, selling fine sheepskin and leather. As an e-commerce business, their success hinges on qualified customers finding and converting on their site.

Overland tasked Big Tree Marketing with both these goals: improve their search visibility and increase their conversion rates.

Site Redesign’s Potential Losses Turn into Revenue Wins

To get conversion rates up, Big Tree Marketing began to execute a major overhaul of Overland’s navigation, product page layouts, and shopping cart checkout experience.

Understanding any site redesign work poses a major risk to a website’s organic visibility, Big Tree Marketing used Conductor to ensure no rankings and authority were lost as they made changes to Overland’s page content and site architecture.

“You can’t make a big change to a site without understanding the SEO impact. Otherwise, you can unwittingly cut off one of the biggest sources of that company’s revenue – organic search.”

“That’s why we use Conductor to test all of our changes, making sure we’re not only protecting Overland’s organic authority, we’re improving it.” –David Sinton, Managing Partner, Big Tree Marketing

Spending Time on Projects That Bring in the Most Revenue

Beyond CRO improvements to Overland’s site, Big Tree Marketing invested time and resources in building Overland’s presence online with social and link building campaigns.

With a small team and thousands of different potential pages to work on, Big Tree used Conductor to prioritize the projects that would have the biggest pay off.

“When we focused on link building, we used Conductor’s platform to research competitors and learn from their successes. If we worked on a social media campaign, we used Conductor to understand what landing pages we would get the most impact from improving. If we were focused on a conversion rate optimization relaunch of a page, we make an annotation in Conductor to track that impact. Conductor’s value goes beyond SEO for us. It has absolutely been worth the investment.”
