Despite being well-established offline, Forever Custom Iron Doors was in need of digital marketing. The company turned to Ballantine to expand their online reach and draw in new, potential customers. Ballantine took an integrated approach to expand their digital presence.

Starting with extensive keyword research, which led to a highly-effective, targeted keyword campaign. Ballantine honed the effectiveness of the website pages by reworking and updating the content. We also optimized the website with keywords, in line with current SEO best practices.

In a continued effort to boost brand awareness, Ballantine developed monthly content calendars for both their Facebook and Instagram channels. Through implementing a regularly scheduled stream of relevant, creative content and a targeted hashtag strategy, Ballantine was able to help improve Forever Custom Iron Doors’ organic reach.

To further capture leads, and seamlessly collect qualifying details, Ballantine also designed and implemented a highly successful new lead form on Facebook. After supplying paid advertising examples, Ballantine got the go-ahead to strategically use paid ads on both Facebook and Google.

Both served as integral growth opportunities as part of our online advertising strategy for this client.

The persistence of digital ads on Facebook can contribute to increase product and brand awareness helping to fuel organic search traffic on Google for their brand terms.

Using Google Ads, Ballantine developed two distinct, targeted PPC campaigns to help achieve growth both locally and nationally. Forever Custom Iron Doors wanted to expand and focus more on NYC so we catered the keywords and ads more towards NYC. The national campaign focuses more on keywords and ads that pertained to their product offerings.

Together, these campaigns were designed to further increase the client’s digital visibility.


At Ballantine, our central goal for Forever Custom Iron Doors’ integrated digital strategy was to use Google Ads, paid advertising, social media, and SEO to increase relevant traffic to their website and ultimately, increase sales. Each component of the strategy worked in synergy to help improve their digital visibility and generate qualified leads.

Prior to partnering with Ballantine, the skilled and experienced iron door maker had 2 keywords that ranked in the top 100 on a Google search and now have 88. With the steady flow of new leads coming from our digital efforts, Forever Custom Iron Doors has mentioned possibly hiring an additional employee. The increase in qualified leads achieved through our strategic plan proved truly effective, increasing conversions and boosting revenue for Forever Custom Iron Doors.
