Lightbox Search Q&A with Bryan Bridges, Senior Vice President, Brand Marketing and Communications, Majestic Steel USA
September 9th, 2020
Q: How has Lightbox Search helped you in your role at Majestic?
A: Lightbox Search helps me understand what our customers, prospects, and other stakeholders see when they search for us. I can use the information to improve website SEO, plan for earned media pitches, and develop strategy for social media and third-party profiles.
Q: What did you achieve or learn using Lightbox Search?
A: Lightbox Search helps me determine the best ways to optimize all of my websites’ performance for search results and how to promote the results I want on page one of Google.
Q:Why do you think it’s important to monitor search results?
A: I get real insight into search results for various search iterations and I can measure progress over time. I have never found a tech platform that offers that ability.
Q:What are your favorite Lightbox Search features?
A: The ability to save searches. I also like to see searches in specific geographies, even when they are state-by-state or city-by-city. And I have all the data sets I need to analyze my websites in one place.
Q:How does Lightbox Search fit into your schedule or routine?
A: For me, it takes just a few minutes to run my searches and categorize the results for scoring. I only need to do this once a month; if I were in a different industry, I might do it weekly.
Q:What about Lightbox Search makes it unique compared to other tools you’ve used
A: It’s easy and intuitive to use because everybody is familiar with the layout of a Google search. I’ve seen other systems, but they are complicated to use and not easy to interpret. With Lightbox Search I can quickly send reports to my executives and they immediately understand what they see without any need for presentation or explanation.
