N.Peal | How Seasonal Content Increased Sessions by 63%
In a Nutshell:
We improved sessions by 63% when comparing the last six months to the previous period
Click through rate (CTR) improved from 2.7% to 4.4%
The page started to convert which led to a revenue increase of 100% in 6 months
We have been working with N.Peal to optimise their existing website performance, with a focus on optimising content ahead of peak season, which for N.Peal, is Autumn/Winter and the post-Christmas sales period.
Summer is a difficult time for the cashmere industry. Searches plummet and people shift their focus from cosy jumpers to lightweight t-shirts and swimwear. That’s why we optimised the existing “Why Cashmere is Perfect to Wear in the Summer” blog to help drive traffic for those that are still interested in wearing cashmere throughout the warmer months.
How did we identify the opportunity?
Through analysing the trend of summer-related cashmere keywords, we noticed that search volume begins to increase in April. We also noticed that the current blog on the N.Peal website was already ranking for these keywords, but could do with a push to reach the top of page one.
What did we do?
To help the blog, we looked for relevant keywords, such as “summer cashmere”, “cashmere in summer” and “can you wear cashmere in the summer”, in January so that the page could rank in time for the summer season.
Through adding quality content, keyword optimisation, and internal linking, we helped build the page ready for the summer, and by the time April came around, N.Peal were ranking position one for all of these keywords.
Here’s what we achieved
Not only have N.Peal retained position one to this day, in the keywords’ period of ‘peak’ searches, N.Peal received a featured snippet, which helped boost the blog’s click through rate (CTR).
When comparing the last six months to the previous period, this N.Peal blog had seen:
An 83% improvement in impressions
63% improvement in sessions
20,000 impressions and a click through rate of 4.4%
The page managed to convert traffic to sales, something the page wasn’t doing previously.
The products purchased were all items perfect for summer and included women’s cashmere cardigans, sweaters and t-shirts.
