Encore is a global pet food brand made with 100% natural ingredients. Originally for the UK grocery market, Encore is now sold around the world to welfare-conscious pet owners interested in feeding their cats and dogs the very best in nutrition, naturally.

From an SEO perspective, Encore’s overall backlinking profile was not very competitive in comparison to other cat food brands on the market. A stronger Domain and Page Authority was needed in order to increase overall brand presence and search visibility across the organic landscape for relevant short-tail and long-tail keywords. Ultimately, the brand needed to produce a high level of optimised content to secure the volumes of available traffic for relevant long-tail keywords. After an initial analysis, it could also be seen that Encore could capitalise on a range of organic opportunities to help boost organic CTRs, brand awareness and purchases year on year.

Encore was also looking to launch a new site, therefore, it became important to carry out some initial SEO optimisation to ensure that any valuable SEO assets were carried across to the new site and that the new site was healthy from a technical SEO perspective. This was crucial to ensure that the site wouldn’t be penalised by future Google algorithm updates. Furthermore, from analysing industry insights, it became clear that most users were native to sites outside of Google Search. Although Encore had a good idea as to who the target audience was, having only dabbled with paid advertising in the past, a great deal of audience targeting had not been fully utilised or explored, therefore there was a huge window of opportunity available for the brand to increase awareness around the new site and branding amongst a hyper relevant audience online.

We conducted an in-depth analysis leveraging data-driven insights to help inform our SEO and Paid Advertising strategy. By carrying out a technical SEO audit, we were able to address Encore’s technical SEO issues, nipping them in the bud to ensure that the site could be crawled and indexed effectively, with minimal errors being reported. We also provided guidance around Encore’s new site structure.

By deploying a robust backlinking strategy, we increased the total number of authoritative external equity passing links to the site, increasing overall Domain and Page Authority, and therefore boosting organic rankings, search visibility and consequently conversions.

We formed a regular content strategy, creating blog articles to increase organic traffic, CTR and keyword rankings for long-tail search queries – also achieving placements in Google featured snippets!
A/B audience testing was carried out across audiences and channels, helping to underpin the most engaged audiences online – This enabled us to increase Encore’s brand reach and awareness amongst their target audience.

By developing and revising advert creatives, we improved engagement amongst users; this was continually refined to develop the most relevant and engaged audience, further optimising CTRs, whilst reducing CPCs.

Detailed online audience profiles informed targeting across paid advertising channels, enabling us to omit exceptionally direct messaging to users based on their needs and interests, delivering a more personalised approach.

By implementing effective remarketing across paid channels, we achieved tailored ad messaging, nurturing users through the marketing funnel.
