Transforming Sales for a Furniture and Kitchen Brand in the UK

About Project

A furniture and kitchen brand offering high-quality products through an e-commerce platform. Previously relying solely on eBay for sales, the client aimed to transition a significant portion of sales to their newly created website and increase overall profitability.

Expanding Reach Beyond Local Boundaries
Despite being based in a single city, we successfully optimized the UK furniture store’s SEO to rank highly for numerous furniture-related keywords in surrounding cities. This strategic expansion significantly increased the store’s visibility and customer base across multiple nearby locations.

Our Role

  • Reduce dependence on eBay and shift sales to the client’s own website.
  • Increase online visibility and organic traffic in the UK.
  • Boost profitability by reducing platform fees and enhancing direct customer engagement.

    Competitors in this niche often have surprisingly large marketing budgets, necessitating efficient and effective use of resources to compete.
  • Achieving high search engine rankings without using link-building strategies.
    Constantly facing new competitors employing black hat SEO techniques, which adds complexity to maintaining our client’s SEO integrity and rankings.
