Increase Loan Applications, Organic, and Paid Traffic

The Challenge

White Fish Credit Union approached Avalaunch Media with a clear objective: to enhance their online presence and drive more applications for loans and credit cards. Despite being a trusted financial institution, they faced challenges in effectively reaching potential clients online. Their website was not fully optimized for search engines, and their paid media campaigns were not yielding the desired results in terms of click-through rates and application starts. White Fish Credit Union needed a comprehensive digital strategy that could not only increase
their visibility but also translate into tangible business outcomes.

The Approach

In a comprehensive digital strategy to boost White Fish Credit Union’s online presence, Avalaunch Media developed a content hub for improved user experience and SEO, optimized existing web pages for better search engine rankings, and conducted regular technical SEO audits to identify and rectify issues. Strategic link building aimed to enhance domain authority, with special attention to the Auto Loans page and Credit Card application page. Optimizations were made to Google My Business and other listings. The content was thoroughly audited and optimized to follow SEO best practices. Additionally, paid media strategies included ongoing campaign optimizations with a focus on “application starts” to increase loan and credit card applications, enhancement of landing pages for higher conversion rates, and optimization of video ads to improve engagement.
