The Challenge

Increasing organic search traffic

While their brick-and-mortar locations were thriving, the company wanted to increase their organic search traffic online. When they contacted Enormous Elephant, the company was overly reliant on paid media. 

At the time, paid media drove their sales. The company had previously attempted to integrate SEO for retailers to increase their organic search traffic, but their past experience with an enterprise SEO agency had been a negative one. Because of this, the company was very skeptical that SEO could successfully drive organic traffic.

But the team at Enormous Elephant has a track record of enacting successful SEO for retailers and we knew we could help.

Laying Down the Rails

Driving traffic with SEO for retailers

When they partnered with Enormous Elephant , the client had set a very aggressive goal for their online presence. The company wanted to grow their organic online traffic by at least 10% year-over-year.

Because the client previously had negative experiences with an enterprise SEO agency, they were reluctant to assign many internal resources to the project of driving organic search traffic.

While this presented a challenge, Enormous Elephant’s team of designers and specialists knew they could handle it. To help the client reach their goals, Enormous Elephant managed the organic and local search functions for the company. The team provided both back-end and front-end SEO.

The company’s needs were assessed and crafted SEO recommendations for future content were provided. In addition, the SEO that was already in place was updated. 

The Outcome

How we changed things

The SEO strategies enacted were highly successful. By incorporating effective SEO, the retailer was able to surpass their aggressive 10% yearly goal for increased traffic. 

After partnering with Enormous Elephant, they saw a year-over-year (YOY) increase of 12% in organic search traffic. The company also experienced an impressive boost in online sales of 63%.

That YOY growth proves how powerful SEO can be for retailers. The SEO recommendations and services that we provided helped increase the overall website traffic and online sales for this franchise. In addition, our SEO efforts increased the client’s total revenue by 28% for both online and offline purchases.

In the end, the client was incredibly satisfied with the powerful results that we were able to deliver.
