Overland (opens in a new tab) is a classic luxury brand, selling fine sheepskin and leather, founded in 1973. Over 45 years, 16 stores, and one thriving web business later, Overland continues to flourish. Their product line has grown from a handful of sheepskin coats to over 1,000 styles of quality sheepskin, leather, and fur products all with the Overland stamp of excellence.
Currently, as an e-commerce business, their success hinges on qualified customers finding and converting on their site.
Overland tasked Big Tree Marketing (opens in a new tab) 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.”

Not only did Conductor help preserve Overland’s existing SEO authority, Big Tree Marketing attributes the 45% organic revenue gain to the platform’s insights.
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.
An Easy Way to Show Results That “Thrilled” Their Client
