Garth Vickers

Garth Vickers hired Contega Media to help ramp up his branding efforts. He has already appeared in mainstream media before but now wants to extend his reach online by building white hat links from content published on major publications. With our expertise in white hat outreach, we were able to secure ethical backlinks from online sites with business and startup owner readers. After getting links from those sites, Garth was able to multiply his traffic and CTRs.


White Hat Outreach, Brand Mentions


Garth Vickers is the CEO and President of Vickers Financial Group and Partner Managing Director of GV Accounting Firm. He is also a best-selling author, finance expert, and business mentor to aspiring entrepreneurs.


Before reaching out to us at Contega Media, he has already been featured in mainstream media such as FOX News, CBS, The Huffington Post, and others. Still, Garth is fully aware of the value of branding by tapping on other channels to promote his brand. This is where we come in.


Our approach for this campaign was to include links to his blog posts relevant to content published on high-authority sites. By linking to his posts, we are able to add value to the content. By association, we intend to elevate Garth’s reputation and stock this way.

At the same time, we want to mention his name and business in the article naturally. Doing so allows us to introduce readers to Garth, what he does, and why they should care. Also, it provides a context to the link back to his site and gives readers a reason to click on it.

Finally, we want to target sites with a high readership in the African American community. Garth’s goals has always been to educate and instill a wealthy state of mind among black business owners and entrepreneurs.
