Green Gorilla CBD | Responsive Website Design, Technical & Keyword SEO, Server/Database Management & Online Marketing
Green Gorilla is an organic CBD manufacturer and distributor both wholesale and online. I began working full-time for Green Gorilla in early 2018, at a time when CBD products were just legalized and starting to explode as a widely recognized supplement. I was immediately put in charge of managing their 8 - 10 websites, domains and dedicated server, which hosted them all. Besides maintenance, my job was to create a new strategy for their main website (ilovegreengorilla.com) to increase our online sales and online presence through SEO, online marketing/advertising, a new website design, and optimizing our website speed and usability.
Some of the major projects I completed while working at Green Gorilla included, 1) Revamping our entire SEO strategy with extensive keyword research, keyword implementation into page titles/meta descriptions/page content/images/etc, and technical SEO to increase and optimize our website speed, 2) Setup multiple advertising accounts with platforms who allowed CBD ads, such as Mantis and Traffic Roots, and continually monitored and optimized all advertising campaigns to continually target the best audience based on our customer demographics, 3) creating and implementing a brand new website design, 4) Purchasing and setting up a new dedicated web server with better performance based on our current/future website requirements and then migrating all of our websites to the new server 5) Helping setup a new affiliate program by setting up tracking code to track affiliates sales/commission and teaching our digital marketer how to use Chrome extensions to determine the amount of traffic and users a potential affiliate’s website currently receives, 6) Assisting our Europe division in creating a similar website for our online sales in Europe at ilovegreengorilla.uk.
As one of the first and only seed to shelf certified organic hemp based CBD companies, Gorilla FarmCo is a sub-division of Green Gorilla Organics. Gorilla FarmCo is Green Gorilla's hemp farm where they grow all their USDA certified organic hemp for their organic CBD products. I designed, developed, researched and implemented the keyword and technical SEO for GorillaFarmCo.com. The website was made live in December of 2019, so at the completion of this project, there weren't enough traffic statistics to show any quantified amount of users. However, given the size of Green Gorilla and the fact that they're sold in over 1500 stores nationwide, Gorilla FarmCo has a promising future, especially being one of the only certified organic seed to shelf hemp farms and CBD companies. Be sure to give them
The Organic Artisan is a my own personal project which is an affiliate website that promotes organic foods and ingredients. The website isn't complete yet as I haven't finished the design and haven't completed any SEO on the site, but it is almost like my child currently. When I'm not working or spending time with friends and family, I am working on TheOrganicArtisan.com. The website has helped affirm with myself that I have chosen the perfect career for myself in web design and SEO because even after a long day of work, I'm able to come home and relax by doing the exact same work on my own website. If you're in the market for any specific organic foods or subscription food plans for high quality organic meals, let me know and I can point you in the right direction!
