Optimizing for dealer network leads

ForeverLawn’s innovative artificial turf brands include ForeverLawn Landscape, K9Grass, PlayGround Grass, GolfGreens, SportsGrass and SplashGrass. Each brand boasts a variety of products customized for specific applications. ForeverLawn sells these products through a dealer network, each business operating in an exclusive territory surrounding its location. The large, and growing, network of dealers covers the U.S. and Canada. With the dealer network at the core of the business model, ForeverLawn knew generating leads for their dealers was key to growing the business.

Our first step was to ensure a strong local presence for all of the dealer markets. This included claiming and optimizing local listings for every dealer, plus creating local landing pages within the ForeverLawn corporate site. The website and each of the individual brand websites boast an interactive “dealer locator” tool as their primary call-to-action, which filters potential customers directly to their local dealer to request information. Thus, all digital marketing efforts ultimately drive users towards leads for the dealers. Featured project content for each brand, Google search and retargeting ads, social media content and advertising, tradeshow support, and generating online reviews work together to draw potential customers from awareness, consideration and intent to purchase.

“Sanctuary is a great partner. We've been happy to work with them for over 5 years now and they continue to meet and exceed our high standards. The entire team does terrific work from website design to social media management. Glad to have them on the ForeverLawn team.”
