Typeform’s SEO Strategy: Building a $3M Annual Lifetime Revenue Channel
Typeform’s product was innovative.
They invented the one-question-at-a-time approach to surveying, and it quickly took off.
When Jake joined Typeform back in 2015, he was a performance marketer and Typeform had yet to implement SEO. His budget in his first month was €5K to make something happen.
Just 3.5 years later, he’d built Typeform’s SEO into a $3M a year channel and executed one of the most successful examples of product-led SEO I’ve ever seen.
His monthly budget? £500K.
“Traffic? I have no recollection, to be honest. We weren’t looking at traffic at all. We were super obsessed with sign-ups and customers. Some keywords drove more sign-ups, others more customers.”—Jake Stainer, Ex-Typeform Head of Growth, Founder @ Skale
- 30,000 non-branded organic signups (all signups from non-feature, pricing, and product pages)
