Using Digital Marketing to Grow a Worldwide Business
What good is a great content marketing effort if Google doesn’t know it exists? That was largely the problem that Crews Control faced and Multiverse solved.
Crews Control is a worldwide video crew and equipment supplier for Fortune 500 companies that was looking to step up their online visibility to get more clients. Their business model of providing people with video crews and video equipment in various cities across the world made it hard to rank in those places without having an office. It was going to take some technical expertise to be able to solve this problem!
A Story of Optimization and Targeting
Crews Control had been doing content marketing for some time, but they had no one who knew how to optimize their content. This means that Google had no idea what their photos or videos were and they weren’t targeting the right keywords with their content. They were building a giant archive of content that was not serving them or their business, and they were leaving lots of potential rankings on the table because of it.
While Crews Control still wanted to create all of their own original content, they needed someone to clean up the SEO mess that had been made and to help teach them better practices for optimization of their content. That way their content marketing would help propel their site up in the rankings and continually build them a better foundation for obtaining better rankings in the future.

- Optimize previously uploaded content on their site to show up more on Google search results
