Let's make you the go-to local gym
in Union Square đź‘€

At ABC Gyms, you're not just about hitting the treadmill or lifting weights. You're about empowering your neighbors to lead healthier, happier lives.

However, to make these goals a reality, you first need to connect with the members of your community. Handing out flyers and relying on word of mouth only gets you so far. To expand your reach and let more people get to know your business, you need a strong online presence.

Currently, you're the first fitness choice on your block, which is proof of the quality of service you offer. Unfortunately, people living only two blocks away won't be able to find you through major search engines.

Together, we could strengthen your online presence, amplify your message, and inspire even more people to join you on the journey to health and wellness. Our local SEO strategy laid out in this proposal aims to showcase the offerings and warm atmosphere that make ABC Gyms unique. Read on to see how our services can help in making ABC Gyms the ultimate fitness choice in Union Square.

Together, we could strengthen your online presence, amplify your message, and inspire even more people to join you on the journey to health and wellness.

The Strategy

Keyword Research

Step 1

Timescales: Week 1

We will have a call to help us understand the products and services you offer on a deeper level than right now. 

We'll then produce an action list and break it down into months. This plan will be structured to get you results as fast as possible.

Instant Results

Step 2

Timescales: Weeks 2-4

Your website has been online for 4 years, which means you're already naturally ranking for a few keywords here and there. Initially, our job is to do a set of quick fixes so you can see results coming in.

You don't currently have a Google Business Profile, which is also something we'll set you up with. Besides helping you look more professional, this will also make you visible on Google Maps and show your business to potential customers in your area in Google Search.

The Ultimate Plan

Step 3

Timescales: Months 2-6

The end game is becoming the ultimate fitness choice in Union Square. Getting on this level of lead generation is to simply be everywhere.

Whatever combination of words people type in - boom, you're there. Whichever online listing they're looking at, ABC Gyms is mentioned. 

Now, this isn't easy and it takes time, but giving you that extra boost in leads will go a long way towards taking over your local space in Google.

Case Study - Wedding Planner


 Jane Doe Wedding Planning had been in business for three years, offering wedding planning services to couples in the local area. Despite having a well-designed website and a strong social media presence, the business struggled to convert online traffic into leads.

Proposed Solution

We identified that the business had a few local competitors that were stealing the spotlight on Google. Even though Jane Doe Wedding Planning sometimes offered the same services for a fraction of the cost, their low online visibility was causing clients to choose their competitors.

We conducted thorough keyword research and strategically incorporated them throughout their website.

Next, we created and optimized listings on popular business directories and encouraged happy clients to leave online reviews.

To further support our strategy, we also created local content, focusing on blog posts and articles on wedding trends, venues and vendors. We used this content to collaborate with local photographers, caterers, and florists to create cross-promotional opportunities.


Within three months of implementing our local SEO strategy, Jane Doe Wedding Planning began ranking number 1 on Google for several targeted local keywords. Thanks to online business listings and website keyword optimization, we also saw the business appear in local maps and featured snippets, increasing its online visibility.

The combination of improved search rankings, positive online reviews, and engaging local content resulted in higher conversion rates for Jane Doe Wedding Planning. 

More website visitors contacted the business for consultations and bookings, leading to a measurable increase in leads and revenue.

"I was relying on word of mouth to keep my business running. Eventually, there were less and less clients, so I knew I had to do something. ABC Online Marketers guided me to having almost more enquiries than I could handle"

Our Guarantee to You

Like with any business purchase, there's risk attached.

We want to completely remove that risk from you and place it on ourselves.

Here's How It Works

The entire purpose of this project is to increase the number of new leads your website generates.

"If we don't get you ____ new leads each week over any given month then you won't pay the following month's management fee."

The only caveat to this is you must be prepared to follow our advice.

You won't need to "call in" the guarantee. If in any month, we don't hit the correct number of new leads then we'll simply amend your invoice for the following month.

We’re ready for you to become the go-to local gym.
