The UK accounts outsourcing industry is well-established and home to many well-known brands and SMBs. As a new company in the market and having taken TLBM’s most basic SEO package , Stellaripe’s biggest challenge was to raise awareness and gain a competitive edge as quickly as possible. They needed their site content optimised with the right industry keywords to be found on search engines organically.
The TLBM approach
Understanding client positioning
We first shared a questionnaire with Stellaripe to gain an understanding of the words/phrases they used to describe their market positioning and who they felt were their competitors. This was necessary to ensure we focused our copywriting and SEO efforts in the right direction and fetched optimal results.
Competitive keyword analysis
On-page SEO and content strategy
While our copywriting team wrote the web copy using the keywords shortlisted for each page, our SEO specialists focused on the on-page activities on the site, such as writing meta titles and descriptions and sorting our anchor texts, image alt tags, and URLs.
Launching and enhancing online visibility
Stellaripe launched its newly designed and search-optimised website in December 2019. Immediately after that, our SEO specialists started off-page SEO activities such as link-building, social bookmarking and forum community engagement to increase the site’s online visibility.
Former Head of SEO, TLBM
“We consistently refined our SEO strategy post-launch while closely monitoring the site’s performance. By February 2020, we observed our targeted keywords ascending in search rankings. Due to our comprehensive approach-building Stellaripe’s website from scratch, meticulously optimising on-page SEO elements, and employing effective off-page SEO tactics like link-building and content marketing-we were able to achieve high rankings for relevant keywords quickly, a success we continue to sustain for Stellaripe to this day.”

Tools we used for the job
“From the outset, I’ve been happy with TLBM’s mastery over SEO. The initial push we received was nothing short of fantastic. While many businesses wait upwards of six months to see any movement on Google, Stellaripe began ranking for several critical keywords in a mere three months, all thanks to Team TLBM! But their expertise didn’t stop at that initial success. They’ve been relentless in identifying, refining, and optimising the right keywords that resonate with our target audience. This continuous effort has ensured that we consistently attract high-quality leads via organic search.”
