Industry: Finance

Location: Wilmington, Delaware

Services Provided: Content Marketing


Nitro came to us in need of someone who could help scale content product production and build relevant links in the crowded higher education affiliate marketing space.

Growth Summary

Following a kick off meeting, we uncovered vast opportunities in “scholarship” keywords to build out for Nitro. We created an interactive format that could be simple to scale across multiple long tail keywords (like scholarships for women, scholarships for nursing students, etc.), but also create a large enough barrier to entry that the competition couldn’t easily replicate it.

In addition to building out relevant scholarship pages, we ran data studies, surveyed students and brainstormed topics of interest to an every day college student. We also assisted in UX/UI guidance for their FAFSA guide to ensure content stayed up to date every year.

The end result was a 300% increase in organic traffic and more than 125 links generated in less than one year.
