How Grant Stone Dominated the Front Page of Google

Grant Stone and its expert craftsmanship became a Google front page sensation after being featured in some of the top fashion outlets.

What was the goal?

Though Grant Stone had mastered the art of creating top-notch shoes and marketing them directly to the consumer, they found their public relations (PR) efforts lacking, affecting their overall business operations. Their objectives included increasing sales, enhancing their SEO presence through backlinks, and securing social proof. The Grant Stone team's frustration lay in having an excellent product but lacking the capacity to effectively achieve these aims independently. They also didn't have connections to the right channels that could provide the PR exposure they desired.Recognizing the necessity for external assistance to fulfill their objectives, Grant Stone opted to collaborate with Don't Be A Little Pitch. Together, they embarked on the development and execution of a tailor-made PR strategy for the company.
