Keyword + Search Intent Research
Creating content with no keyword research is like driving a car with no steering wheel. Keyword research drives any successful content marketing campaign, especially for SEO. In order to be successful in search, your content needs to include keywords and search phrases that users are actively using to find your content. It takes rigorous research, prioritizing, and testing to ensure that the content you’re creating is having an impact. That’s where we come in.
Our keyword research includes:

After we’ve completed our keyword research, we begin prioritizing the keywords and search phrases that will have the biggest impact in the shortest amount of time. We take a look at factors like search volume, competition, seasonality, and more, to ensure that all content opportunities and content created will show real ROI and SEO impact from an increase.

Content ideas are worthless unless prioritized, created, and optimized. That’s why we work closely with your team to develop an ongoing editorial calendar that ensures a steady stream of content being developed for your website.

Michael Vedders / Director of Marketing / Bethel University
Marcel Digital is simply the best Digital Marketing agency. We hired them years ago, and I can't say enough amazing things about their dedication to the field, to my team, and their phenomenal leadership team. Top-notch professionals all around.
Kim Rafalowitz / Dir. of Global Marketing / Worldpoint
I went with Marcel Digital over a larger - and much higher priced - competitor and it's one of the best decisions I've made. Marcel Digital are lovely people to deal with, extremely knowledgeable and approachable and willing to take the time to examine possible solutions that differ from how they would normally proceed. I value the partnership with their company and am planning on having our company be a client of theirs for years to come. Can't recommend them enough.
Michael Duquet / Director, Web Strategy / Absolute Software
Having a partnership with Marcel Digital has been a lifesaver for our business. We could not be happier with their work ethic, attention to detail, and superior expertise. I highly recommend them if you are looking for a talented, and trustworthy partner!
Diane Locher / Director of Sales and Marketing / Precision Medical
We have been using Marcel Digital for the past few years. We attribute our growth to the staff at Marcel and have embraced them as part of our company. Their insight and attention to detail have been indispensable. They take a personal approach to our products and processes and see our success as their own. We highly recommend Marcel!
