Pestcom Pest Control Case Study:
Accelerating Growth in a Growing City

The Challenge: Keep Up In a Rapidly Shifting Market

In its initial years, Pestcom experienced steady growth, content with the progress achieved through a basic WordPress website and a modest approach to SEO, all within a budget of $1,500 for Google Ads. This period of stability was marked by consistent expansion and smooth operations.

However, as the competitive landscape intensified, Pestcom sought to shift gears and propel its growth. With a solid reputation in the pest control industry and a burgeoning Boise market, the company recognized the need for a strategic pivot. They entrusted GrowthBound, a partner renowned for its profound industry expertise, to lead this transformation.

The digital arena in Boise was evolving rapidly. A population surge led to fierce competition, and keyword costs skyrocketed. Competitors swiftly adopted aggressive digital-first strategies, making it clear that innovation was not just an option for Pestcom—it was a necessity for survival.
