How strategic branding, CRO and SEO came together to turn Mckinney Trailer Rentals’ website into a lead generation machine that filled the company's sales pipeline.

A family-owned business, Mckinney is known for its professional service and large inventory of well-maintained, reliable trailers. Unfortunately, this alone didn’t make Mckinney’s website effective.

Mckinney leadership knew something needed to change, so they reached out to SyncShow for help. With a proven history of driving ROI for B2B transportation companies, SyncShow turned Mckinney’s website into a lead generation machine.

Mckinney's website overhaul led to 109x more leads being generated over six months when compared to the same six months of the prior year. This drastic increase was the result of:

  • Creating strategic website brand messaging centered around customer pain points
  • Implementing a search engine optimization (SEO) strategy to increase website traffic
  • Adhering to conversion rate optimization (CRO) best practices to improve website experiences and capture qualified leads at scale

The Challenge: Increase Qualified Traffic & Leads

Hand pointing at dataMckinney’s primary goal was to drive more leads through its website, but the company's website was lacking in several key areas.

  1. Website messaging didn’t capture Mckinney’s unique value proposition.

  2. There were no high-quality content assets to attract prospects through search and other marketing channels.

  3. There wasn't a lead nurturing strategy that leveraged marketing and site visitor data to optimize leads and accelerate sales efforts.

  4. Website design was dated and provided a poor user experience.

All this together made a full website overhaul the best approach. To build a roadmap to success, Mckinney participated in SyncShow’s proprietary WebSync strategy session. Following the session, SyncShow was able to provide a clear outline for how Mckinney should position itself, as well as a detailed plan showcasing how SyncShow would help Mckinney achieve their goals.

The Results

Within the first year, Mckinney’s new and improved website increased website sessions by 50%. While this was happening, the site’s bounce rate decreased by 11%. This meant that there were not only more site visitors, but that those visitors were also the right visitors who were interested in Mckinney’s services.

Organic sessions increased by an even larger percentage. Compared to the previous year, organic traffic increased by 134%, while the rest of the industry only saw a 5–20% increase.

By the end of the new website's first year, Mckinney had beat its lead generation goal for the year by 105%.

After seeing these results, Mckinney continued to work with SyncShow, knowing that SEO and CRO are things that require continued maintenance and continuous improvements. This partnership then led the company to see 109x more leads in six months compared to that same time period the year before.
