Encore Music connects aspiring musicians and vocalists with the most qualified teachers in their area, matching budgets and schedules to help students of all ages keep on learning.
After recovering from a penalty brought on by an unscrupulous SEO agency, Encore Music desperately needed to attract new, high-quality links from relevant websites in their niche.
Ideally, Encore Music also wanted to secure links that helped elevate awareness of their services while bringing in qualified leads and traffic to the site.

With the audience nailed down, we worked to identify a hot-button topic that would have both audiences excited to discuss our content and share it with others.

The topic helps validate the piano teaching profession
The information helps teachers sell their service in a new and compelling way
Parents are deeply invested in the mental wellbeing of their children, and the data we were able to share helped them understand that piano lessons were a worthy investment.
With the topic decided, we set about conducting extensive research, sourcing top design talent and producing the infographic.
Once created, we undertook an extensive promotional program involving both social and email outreach.
The infographic was a viral success. In just two short months, we earned…
