Turn Your Website Visitors Into Transient & Long-Term Boaters

The best marinas hire us when they want the traffic, rankings and boaters other marine marketing agencies can’t deliver.

That’s where SD Marina comes in – we are online marketing and marine experts helping marinas, marina management companies, marina hotels, dock rentals, yacht brokers and boat dealers thrive online. You can expect a flood of website traffic, more qualified leads, and increased bookings and revenue.

Our Marina Marketing Services

SEO for Marinas

Our approach to SEO:

  • Step 1: SEO audit and high-value keyword research
  • Step 2: Launch SEO campaign
  • Step 3: Optimize and climb to the top of Google Search

Search engine optimization (SEO) is a powerful tool that can help your marina rank higher in search engines for relevant keywords, putting you in front of potential customers when they’re searching for your services.

By optimizing your website’s content and technical aspects, you can improve your visibility and drive more qualified traffic to your business.

At SD Marina, we understand the importance of local SEO for targeting customers within a specific geographic area and also the benefits of targeting more competitive national search terms.

We offer full-service SEO including website audits, technical SEO, on-page SEO and link building for local and/or national SEO campaigns.

Our team will work to ensure your marina appears prominently in search results, making it easier for boaters to find you.

PPC for Marinas

Our approach to Google Ads:

  • Step 1: Identify high-value searches
  • Step 2: Launch/ Optimize Google Ads
  • Step 3: Drive qualified boater leads to your marina

While SEO is a long-term strategy, pay-per-click (PPC) advertising can provide immediate results by driving targeted traffic to your website.

SD Marina’s experts will craft compelling PPC campaigns tailored to your marina’s offerings, reaching potential customers who are actively searching for your services.

Remarketing campaigns are another powerful tool in our arsenal, allowing you to re-engage with visitors who have previously shown interest in your marina.

By delivering targeted ads to these potential customers, you can increase brand awareness and drive conversions.

Marina Content Creation and Optimization

Our approach to Content:

  • Step 1: Identify high-value content and keyword opportunities
  • Step 2: Brief content
  • Step 3: Write, Edit, Fact check, Publish

In addition to SEO and PPC, SD Marina understands the significance of high-quality, engaging content for attracting and retaining customers.

But content creation is just the beginning. We’ll ensure your content is optimized for search, conversions and user experience, improving your online visibility and keeping visitors engaged with your brand.

FAQ: Marina Marketing Services

We offer 3 SEO investment options, and also provide a la carte SEO services to suit your needs. And unlike other marine SEO companies, we’re confident that we can show our value in a short period of time, so we don’t require 12-month contracts.

We can’t guarantee #1 rankings for specific keywords. Marine SEO companies who make promises like that aren’t doing their clients or themselves any favors. At SD Marina, we won’t work with you unless we believe we can help you reach your marina business goals.

While we’ll start implementing a marina SEO and/or marina PPC strategy very quickly, results take time. We require a 6-month retainer for all new SEO partners and a 3 months retainer for PPC clients. This gives you a chance to see the full benefits of our efforts.

Yes. You will have a dedicated SEO/PPC expert whose singular focus is helping you achieve your business goals. All of our team comes from a background in marine or online marketing. You can expect proactive communication and very short response times.

Every marina we work with gets a customized report every month. Using data gathered in Google Analytics and other sources. We’ll also explain our strategy and roadmap for the coming months. Your questions and feedback are always welcome.

No. We don’t partner with competing businesses. Working with similar marinas or firms in the same city undermines results and a business’s ability to reach its full potential. When your marina wins, SD Marina wins.

When we started working with SD Marina, we were skeptical after some lackluster experiences with other SEO companies. But they quickly put our minds at ease with their impressive level of communication, transparency and clear mutual goal of enhancing our website to drive more qualified leads. We’ve seen measurable improvements in our organic search performance, website engagement, and online conversions.

Sisterbay Marina
Our partnership with SD Marina has been a big success on both the SEO and PPC fronts. On the organic search side, their white hat SEO strategies have dramatically increased our keyword rankings and driven a steady stream of 5-10 new organic leads per day to our site. Their paid search campaigns have generated over $100k in cost savings compared to our previous PPC agency. Beyond the stellar results, what I appreciate most is their communicative approach, attention to detail, and effective workflows.
