Our partnership mirrors their mission: high quality, positive return on investment, and peace of mind. Together, we have spent significant time getting to know each other and learning the details of their business. We are responsible for all of EarthPlanter’s digital marketing, and our strategies have continued to evolve year after year to constantly seek new opportunities for their growth and success. Over 25 different digital marketing channels are utilized for EarthPlanter including Google ads, Facebook ads, Pinterest organic, Facebook organic, LinkedIn organic, branded organic search, unbranded organic search, email, partner placement ads, Bing organic, YouTube organic, and referrals from partner sites.
Challenges & Solutions During COVID-19 Pandemic
Much like selecting the perfect EarthPlanter, Linden Digital Marketing needed to evaluate the best fit digital platforms to not only gain back business that was lost in 2020, but to exceed those numbers to lead to a more profitable 2021. Through strategic evaluation of company goals, past years’ data, and previous campaign successes and failures, Linden moved forward with the following integrated marketing initiatives for 2021: website management and development, branding, search engine optimization (SEO), search engine marketing (SEM), organic social media, paid social media, print media, and digital strategy and reporting.
