I’m super proud of the results we’ve achieved. Here are a few of the recent ones!
Recently Acquired For $262 Million
Opus International came to us with one simple request. “Can you make us appear on Google?”
This seemed like an easy task for us until we realised they had 11 websites between Australia, New Zealand, Canada, USA, UK, Fiji and a global website on top of that.
Through an extensive case of local search engine optimisation - we created over 500 different localisedbusiness listings and backlinks in each of the countries above an attempt to cement each of their websites in their respective local market.
We increased the visibility of their New Zealand website from 7.5% to 14.9%. We did the same for every single one of their websites, massively increasing their brand awareness and amount of business derived from organic traffic which is their largest source of website traffic and potentially revenue.
“We're at the beginning of our journey with Inbound. Their attention to detail, enthusiasm and fast-results have been a joy. We're looking forward to more.” Katie Mills - Opus
Largest Insurance Provider In NZ
$1+ Billion In Revenue
The largest insurance provider in New Zealand came to us with a problem. Sitting on the front page of Google, right below their brand search result was the following.
“**** insurance f***ed me over”
Yeap... they swore.
This Google result was appearing on over 200,000 searches every single month and costing them potentially hundreds of thousands in lost revenue.
Before the client had solved the situation with their customer, the customer had left a scathing review on Reddit. When the client contacted us, the post had been live for over 3 years as they had originally attempted to solve the challenge themselves.
The top priority was to remove the Reddit post completely. After that was taken care of, our focus was to be moved towards two thing:
Improvements in rankings for the companies other major assets such as their social pages and increase their rankings overall.
After 6 months of hard work, we managed to completely remove the negative post and successfully completed our mission.
Zero to $1M in Annual Recurring Revenue
Authentically was an interesting project for us to work on. Their problem? They were a startup who had literally launched their website a few weeks earlier.
Because of their infancy, we decided that Adwords & Facebook ads was the best option to deliver quick wins up front while we worked on their organic presence through search engine optimisation (SEO) for the long term traffic.
With a total budget of $41,763,23, we managed to deliver a total conversion value of $236,593. This is roughly a 5.6x ROI.
And as we said before, while we were delivering a quick win with the Adwords, SEO started to kick in. With a total of 349,705 sessions, today we are now seeing over 90% of the traffic come from organic search and delivering a staggering 3x higher conversion rate than the Adwords traffic.
In 2018 we managed to deliver 199,904 users to their site with a whopping 733,293 pageviews.

Imagine if you didn’t have to guess anymore?
Yeah, I get it. Growth hacking, search engine optimisation, and other tactics can sometimes appear mysterious so that’s why I want to personally help you out. The number one complaint I hear about the industry is that it’s so confusing.
Hopefully, you’re here because you’ve read my content and have seen how much value I’ve provided to my previous clients.
I’ve worked with hundreds of companies around New Zealand and Australia and achieved some really cool results. Because of this, I’ve also been featured in Stuff, NZ Entrepreneur and more.
I’m not saying any of this to impress you, but to impress upon you that I know what I’m doing and in Australasia, I’m one of, if not the best at search engine optimisation & growth hacking.
