Mannix Marketing Inc. & American Heating Company – Valuable Content Marketing Campaign

Mannix began working with American Heating Company in 2014 and redesigned their website in 2015. Most recently, from July 2017-18, Senior Digital Marketing Strategist Jessica Tracy with Mannix has been working on American Heating Company’s valuable content marketing campaign to improve AHC’s online presence, increase organic search traffic to their website, and increase awareness of AHC among the industrial heating equipment industry in order to drive conversions and sales.

The project, which has utilized approximately 180 staff hours to date, included regularly updating blog posts and maintaining an ongoing content calendar, while continuing the efforts of on-site SEO services, competitor/industry research, and social media marketing.

The results of this campaign have been very successful. Mannix helped AHC achieve a record year in 2017, meeting all goals established for the campaign and greatly exceeding the clients’ expectations. Most, if not all, of American Heating Company’s new customers are now finding the company through their website. There was a 97.47% increase in organic search traffic visiting the AHC website from the previous year. The blog has been a major factor in achieving these numbers, with 28.06% of the site’s total page views coming from the AHC blog from July 2017-2018.
