As well as Master Systems Integration, they also support their customers with platform training, energy management solutions, integration consultancy as well as a huge range of products available to buy on their online store.
I have have worked with the team at Forest Rock since 2019 and have supported all areas of the online marketing strategy including the launch of their new website in 2020 as well as the management of their various marketing channels such as SEO, PPC and Social Media.
The primary aim for Forest Rock Systems was to increase the brand awareness among their core target audience. They wanted to push the right messages to the right people regarding the most relevant products and services. The overall measure was the increase in revenue and ultimately profits.
With the range of products and services that Forest Rock offers to their clients being so large, it was important to break down specific objectives for each area of the business. The overall general objectives were:
- Increase overall traffic to the website
- Increase organic traffic to the website
- Increase the number of conversions for the services offered to clients
- Increase the revenue generated by their online eCommerce store
1. New Website Consultation
The website that I inherited required multiple changes to be able to implement an SEO strategy that would be effective. The initial project consisted of guiding senior leadership in the right technology for the new website, setting the purpose and the goals that we wanted to achieve and the general setup so that the internal team and I can do our jobs.
This project involved discussions relating to overall business and marketing strategies, the positioning of the products and services and who we would be targeting the SEO campaigns. Once this was agreed and implemented, we had the basis to grow the traffic to the website.
2. Content Strategy
Now I had our business and marketing strategies in place, I was able to conduct marketing research in terms of content topics and structure. I used my tools to spy on competitors strategies and conduct our my own independent keyword research to generate a content strategy which would meet the objectives.
I focused on products and services which fit the following criteria:
- High margin products and services
- More easily executed by internals teams
- Those products and services which were more likely to lead to more work down the line
3. Landing Page Strategy
During the pandemic, our target market spent more time at home than ever before. I pivoted the strategy to prioritise lead generation and incorporated the creation of assets and online webinar sessions to meet the changing market. I designed and developed assets as well as landing pages and drove traffic to these to increase the amount of warm leads in our sales funnel.
4. Distribution Project
This project involved the creation of assets such as landing pages and PDFs to encourage our target market to join the Forest Rock distribution partnership programme. I used best practices regarding conversion optimisation to encourage as many of our target audience as possible to get to the landing page and sign up to receive information about how Forest Rock and their organisations could work together to grow.
