About our clients and cases


For Mediq, we successfully developed one lead generation strategy for two very different target groups. For this case we collaborated with our partner Quantcast. Quantcast is a powerful audience intelligence platform that helps businesses improve their digital advertising strategies. Quantcast’s AI-powered algorithms analyze vast amounts of data to identify patterns and behaviors that allow advertisers to reach their desired audiences more effectively. Its reporting and optimization tools enable businesses to monitor campaign performance in real-time, make data-driven decisions, and adjust their strategies accordingly.

Leaseplan Bank (SEO)

In 2022, LeasePlan Bank (LPB) decided to adopt a more content-driven strategy with the goal of becoming the authority on saving. To achieve this, it is important to reach, inspire, and convince (potential) savers to save with LPB. Traffic Builders was asked to develop a strategy for building online authority and to reach and stimulate the different target audiences with relevant and SEO-optimized content, tailored to specific personas. We ensure that the Hygiene and Hub content is in order and create an internal link strategy to optimize user-friendliness and maximize online visibility, which also gives a boost to page rankings in Google. Periodic keyword analyses form the basis for content ideas and help us find untapped keywords. We use the content hub model with a main theme and several sub-themes with multiple blogs. To maximize the use of new and existing content, we distribute it through various channels, for example with an influencer campaign and through social organic.
