The challenge.

Discount Party Warehouse (DPW) is a versatile B2C business with both a physical location and online store. Their incredibly large range of products and supplies had yet to find success in online marketing. Prior to our involvement, DPW’s initial online experience resulted in a mishandled website migration by large marketing agency. This led them to conclude online marketing was not for DPW.  AEK Media was referred to DPW after learning of our integrated marketing approach with a strong track record for ROI throughout complex categories. Our customised marketing campaigns are content-rich and designed to strategically leverage each platform’s benefits for sales and strong ROI for our customers. We recognised there were several issues resulting in both search engines and users struggling to find key categories on DPW’s site. Ensuring we have a deep understanding of our client’s products’ and categories facilitates the opportunity for growth. We integrate our client’s knowledge and expertise is key to delivering digital stories that effectively nurture, educate, and convert traffic into growth. DPW was soon finding success in what was otherwise a challenging market during the COVID19 lockdown.

Our approach.

Our approach was driven by serving highly-relvant products to qualified audiences. This meant calculating the right stage, the right product and price to draw them into a larger shopping experience on DPW’s e-commerce store.  

Additionally, the challenges presented were our guide for delivering on the desired outcome of profitable online sales growth for DPW. We designed a marketing funnel that leveraged multiple channels SEO, Google Search and Shopping Ads, Facebook.  
Three primary examples: 

Click & Collect for COVID-impacted periods

Less foot traffic on physical locations, bringing people from online to door step by introducing the click and collect functionality on their website.

Online Merchandising

Product prioritisation (Sort Order) resulted at the top of the category page, listed products with more relevance and improved accuracy of category descriptions.

Rankings for Products

Due to a high number of out of stock products, DPW had suffered a loss of rankings. We deployed a new feature on the site to ensure items remained live but with an option to be notified when it was back in stock. This kept DPW’s rankings for products whilst providing a great customer experience.

Leveraging a Powerful Platform.

  • Leveraging HTML widgets and automated link redirection in the page builder for strategic categorisation. 
  • Introduction of the Notify Me functionality ensured that high traffic or out-of-stock products are still able to maintain their presence on Google to capture intent for ranking. 
  • Website Search Data on site allowed us to align merchandising for future categories and inform our keyword research. 
  • Automated Abandoned Checkout email flows automatically captured visitors leaving the website and offered an additional discount to entice the purchase. 
  • Store Pickup Capability allowed us to build additional sales for their retail store. 
  • Automatic Discounts assisted the sale and was leveraged for promotions that we pushed throughout ads on Facebook, Instagram and Google.  

Search Engine Optimisations.

DPW’s online presence most successful channels were through SEO and Google Shopping Ads. DPW saw a 110% increase in ranking of searched keywords on the first page (SERP) and a 96% increase keywords ranking, both on Google in Australia.  

  • The creation of shortened URLs resulted in unique landing pages that targeted core keywords. The website architecture was streamlined to be informative to both users and search engines alike.  
  • Reporting and analytics integration helped us navigate the attribution of each channel of the marketing funnel to answer the complex question of where DPW’s customers came from.
  • Effective internal linking strategy from strongest to weakest pages, resulting in the distribution of website strength across the entire site.

Keywords Ranking on First Page in Australia

Breaking down a winning strategy.

  • DPW’s website ranked on category and product level keywords/search terms on the first page of Google Australia. 
  • We improved the authority and relevancy of DPW’s website through site architecture improvements and off-page link building. 
  • Effective internal linking strategy from strongest to weakest pages, resulting in the distribution of website strength across the entire site
