The cannabis market has become extremely competitive. As a leading media platform for cannabis advertisers, Herb sought to increase the effectiveness of their content marketing in order to own highly valuable keywords at various stages of the customer journey. Herb had a ton of existing content that wasn't properly optimized for driving sales, and needed new content created to capture searches they weren't currently ranking for. They're goal was to increase affiliate revenue and provide more value to their advertising partners.
