Gopak case study

A leading UK furniture manufacturer and retailer of lightweight folding tables

ThoughtShift provided SEO & PPC services

The Situation

A leading UK table manufacturer wanted to increase traffic and eCommerce revenue from their website. With more competition from consumer websites like Amazon, Argos, Ikea & Tesco for their generic folding table terms a new approach was needed to increase B2B sales.

The Solution

  • Audience segmentation identified schools, universities, churches and scout groups as bulk buyers
  • Competitor backlink analysis identified an opportunity to rank on the 1st page of Google’s results for the keywords “school folding tables” as well as more generic terms like “folding tables”
  • Meta data optimisation applied the target keywords to title tags, meta descriptions and headings.
  • Category and sub category pages were optimised for relevant keywords and internal links
  • Monthly linkbuilding included school and church buying group outreach and a variety of community engagement to increase the variation and value of the inbound links
  • Added Feefo reviews to rich snippets and star ratings to ad copy to increase conversion rate and Quality Score
  • Created individual PPC campaigns for top selling products and branded terms
  • Optimised bids on keyword terms and tested new ad copy to increase landing page Quality Score

The Results

SEO revenue increased 82% year on year

  • Ranked #1 in Google for high volume generic terms like “folding tables” above Amazon and Argos
  • Ranked #1 in Google for audience specific keywords like “school folding tables” and “contour folding tables”
  • SEO traffic increased 245% year on year
  • SEO revenue increased by 82% year on year
  • PPC revenue increased 30% year on year

“In the short time that ThoughtShift has been managing our SEO and PPC campaigns the positive results they have generated are testament to their hard work and understanding of both our products and our business model.  With declining PPC stats, they have efficiently reversed this trend with Paid Search Revenue increasing by 30% YOY and Organic Revenue a staggering 82%.  This is good news when our online presence becomes the core vehicle for generating direct sales.”
