In the delightful realm of baked goods, a local bakery was appreciated for its scrumptious cakes and pastries but struggled to gain new customers due to limited online visibility.


Problem Statement

Despite their mouth-watering menu and top-quality service, the bakery was getting lost in the local search results, which was affecting their potential to attract walk-in customers and online orders.

Goals and Objectives

The bakery’s primary objectives were to enhance its online visibility, increase footfall and online orders, and rank higher in local search results, specifically in Google’s local 3-Pack and Google Maps.

Strategies and Tactics

Our strategy involved Google My Business optimization, local keyword strategy, promotional campaigns, and leveraging user-generated content.

Google My Business Optimization: We fine-tuned the bakery’s GMB listing with updated information, enticing photos of the bakery and its baked treats, and regular posts about new menu items and seasonal specials.

Local Keyword Strategy: We performed comprehensive local keyword research to find the search terms that potential customers might use. These keywords were then incorporated into the bakery’s website content and GMB listing.

Promotional Campaigns: Understanding the power of promotions in the food industry, we launched time-bound online promotional campaigns, offering discounts on bakery favorites to stimulate interest and customer visits.

Leveraging User-Generated Content: Recognizing that customers often share their food experiences online, we encouraged customers to share their bakery visits on social media, tagging the bakery and using a unique hashtag. These posts were then featured on the bakery’s GMB listing and website, providing social proof and engaging content.


Our local SEO strategy was executed, with ongoing performance review and modifications based on data insights and local food trends.

Results and Metrics

Our local SEO strategy saw significant results within five months:

  • The bakery started to appear in the Google 3-Pack for crucial local search terms like “bakery in [location]” and “best cakes near me”.
  • Their Google Maps listing views jumped by an impressive 240%.
  • Local organic search traffic to the bakery’s website grew by 95%.
  • The bakery witnessed a 45% rise in footfall and a 60% increase in online cake orders, directly linked to the improved online visibility.

Conclusion and Learnings

This case study shows the effectiveness of a well-executed local SEO strategy in the food and beverages industry. The substantial increase in footfall and online orders, attributable to enhanced online visibility, validates the success of our approach.
