About this case
Let's go. In and out, 5 minutes adventure estimate time to read
Hi!

Thanks for checking out this case study!

Let me quickly make an intro...

My name is Viktoriia Medvedko, and I run this small but effective link outreach business at Getmentioned.today.

Here is what we have achieved after 3 months time span of active link building:
30
Authority Niche Relevant Backlinks Acquired
#5
Ranking for clients top keywords (+5 ranks increase)
3 Months
Results achieved after 3 months of active link building
I believe the mentioned results were achieved mostly because of two reasons:

  1. the client's product's quality itself (it's just simply better than competitors have),
  2. the highly skilled team behind it (now see point 1 as the reason for it).

Me and my team just played a small part in their act, providing exactly the right service they needed.

I can't get any results no matter how hard we try, how many links we will get, if the client's site doesn't even have a core content it place.

That's why...
...the main point of this case study is not to brag on how crazy great we are, but to show how easy is to work with us, and which results we can achieve together by combining your product awesomeness with our link building skills.
With that being said, let's get to the classic structure of:

- Challange
- Solution
- Hire us please

Shall we?
What was the challenge?
TL;DR: heavy competition, hard to find new link leads from month to month
The client is a credited Adobe partner, and provides Premiere Pro transition packs on a subscription basis.

All of the packs are vetted by niche leading video editing experts and visual artists, so the service is highly trusted and simply well made in terms of overall UX and design.

They are on the market since 2010, and not so long ago they have moved to a new domain, therefore the need in consistent link building support is appeared.

This client was struggling to rank for competitive keywords, as there is a large amount of competition in these spaces, hence acquiring more authority links was defined as a main course of action.

The issue #1 was in lack of relevant placement for linking

The ideal placement for such client should be a review post of some video editor blogger, or popular visual artist.

The issue #2 - the niche sites we've found doesn't have the right SEO metrics

As turned out, a lot of personal sites of the mentioned video bloggers doesn't have the enough domain authority, in other words, doesn't pass any our internal metric standards.

I'm not talking about DR 15-20, we've found DR 0.3-5 blogs that won't really help us with our goals.

The issue #3 - the niche is really small, and everybody knows each other and our intentions

We got replies from blogs that were 100% aware in what we're trying to achieve (to get that sweet link) and were either not responding/declining our pitches or offering a monthly sponsored package.
In other words, they receive 10-20 similar pitches each day because there are only 50 personal video editor sites in the niche with right metrics.

And last but not least...

Some bloggers were happy to proceed but they were tied with ongoing partnerships with competitive firms and were unable to promote as to without violation of their current agreements.

Quite a challenge, huh?

Here is what we did...
The Solution: Authority Link Building
The main method we apply for our clients is an authority link building - mentions of your brand or product on relevant articles, published at trusted sites (see bellow).
The key to success here was to wide our search and include sites that featuring niche relevant content and have dedicated categories to visual art, video editing, also posting reviews for video editing software and passionate about content that our main auidience is looking for.
So here is how we did it, described in 3 steps:
Step 1: Research Stage
We're looking for sites with relevant pages, where your content will naturally fit and be link worthy (primarily from Ahrefs competitor's link profile check)
Step 2: Outreach Stage
Then we get in touch with the responsible persons and suggesting additions to their content, these edits will be links to your well-written and value-adding target pages
Step 3: Link Placement
In such a way, we're adding an extra value to our target prospects articles, which allows us to get a link to your site in return.

It's a powerful trust measure that is earned, and has compounding benefits:
  1. Signals to Google that your content is authoritative
More impressions, more clicks, more happy subscribers
2. Improves your ability to rank for that given keyword
Which means your new content will be ranking faster
3. Scales your DR
(Domain Rating)
4. And drives direct referral traffic*
*In some cases. Not every link will establish a stream of refferal traffic, but it happens
The Results
With E-learning client, we were able to earn link mentions for their content on 30 great amazing resources and publications within 3 months of work (Starter Plan of our Authority Link Building Service):
Based on the Ahrefs data, we had 1861 Ahrefs traffic in July 2021, and ended up with 2313 in September 2021, which leave us with 20% increase in Ahrefs organic traffic.

It doesn't directly correlate with the real traffic data, because Ahrefs makes only assumptions based on its own sources.

For us, it's a marker that we are moving in the right direction.

For the most accurate data it's better to use Google Search Console, like we have in our E-learning case.
To be more specific combining all of the efforts we have achieved:
30 authority backlinks from DR50+ websites
Quotes and brand features to improve brand and topical authority
Ranking #5 for "premiere pro transitions pack" (+5 ranks)
More than 20% increase in Ahrefs traffic
Direct packs purchases and business growth
