Case Study Hilton Head Health

Hilton Head Health (H3) is an internationally recognized and awarded weight loss and wellness resort on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. For over 30 years, H3 has helped thousands of adults achieve a healthier life.


When we first began working with H3, their website was acquiring solid traffic and conversions, but there was little understanding of attribution. They had hit a plateau and needed to re-energize their digital marketing campaigns.

Our first priority was to audit the Google Analytics tracking to understand where bookings and contact us forms were being driven from. In addition, we added call tracking to measure and record phone calls from each online channel. We identified what a lead was worth, and set real ROI goals for each channel. Once we could understand current performance, we began optimizing to reach their goals.

Search Engine Optimization

Hilton Head Health suffered from a lack of keyword focus and diversity. At the beginning of the engagement, Tractorbeam analyzed the most valuable keywords to optimize website content. Discovered and eliminated technical errors persistent throughout the website. And, worked closely with H3 and the PR company to increase the amount of quality links and mentions.

Technical Optimization

Once the analysis was completed, Tractorbeam made immediate recommendations for critical technical SEO changes to boost website performance including meta-tag, schema markup, site-map changes, and website structure and hierarchy.

Content Optimization

Once technical SEO was implemented, ongoing optimization of on-page content began. By optimizing content for keywords, synonyms, close variants, and, semantic distance to highlight critical content for search. Most importantly the content was written to add value to visitors, provide more information, and contribute to the greater good of the internet.
