The client, an online retailer of a variety of exotic teas from around the world, had a unique selling proposition but faced significant challenges in building their online visibility. Despite their diverse and quality offerings, they found it difficult to engage with potential customers on the internet.
The primary issue for the business was their low ranking on search engine results pages (SERPs) for key tea-related search terms. This resulted in a lower organic traffic volume, leading to suboptimal online sales. Also, their website faced user experience challenges, contributing to a high bounce rate.
The client aimed to enhance their SERP rankings for specific tea-related keywords, improve organic traffic to their website, enhance the user experience on-site, and ultimately, increase their online sales.
The strategy developed by Egochi encompassed:
Our first step involved a comprehensive website audit, identifying and rectifying multiple SEO and user experience issues, including site speed, mobile compatibility, and user interface optimization.
Alongside the audit, our team undertook detailed keyword research to understand the search behavior of the target audience. The identified keywords were strategically embedded in the site’s content, product descriptions, and meta tags.
To strengthen the site’s online authority, we developed a robust link-building strategy, securing high-quality backlinks from reputable food and beverage websites and blogs.
Finally, we rolled out a strategic content marketing plan, including regular blog posts on tea brewing techniques, health benefits of various teas, and interesting stories behind exotic tea varieties.
Over a period of six months, the client observed a considerable increase in their online visibility. Organic traffic to their website increased by 235%, and the bounce rate decreased by 30%. Their site started appearing on the first page of search results for several important tea-related keywords, leading to an impressive 50% rise in online sales. On-site user engagement also improved significantly, as indicated by a 45% increase in average session duration.
This case study illustrates how a well-implemented SEO strategy can breathe new life into an ecommerce business’s online presence. By focusing on both technical and content aspects of SEO, we were able to boost the exotic tea store’s visibility, user engagement, and sales, reinforcing the critical role of SEO in ecommerce success.
