Case Study: Crown & Caliber
Crown & Caliber is the premier buyer and seller of pre-owned luxury watches. Their goal is to provide a risk-free online solution for shoppers to buy and sell watches from over 40 renowned brands. To increase their reach to watch-lovers around the world, they partnered with ROI Revolution for organic traffic optimization.

Crown and Caliber’s slow speed negatively impacted their ability to rank for targeted search queries as well as their site’s conversion rate.
