SEO Strategy

It was important that the Ballie Ballerson website improved search engine rankings. We therefore undertook a keyword analysis to identify new opportunities that the website had a statistical chance of ranking for. The research highlighted a number of event-type related keywords for events such as hen dos, stag dos and birthday parties. Ballie Ballerson were in a strong position to leverage their website code to rank for these popular, high value search terms and to secure large group bookings.

To create the most value, we adopted a ‘win strategy’ approach where we assessed the competitive metrics for each keyword and optimised the site for a number of keyword groups to achieve aggregate improvements in rankings.

SEO targetting

Implementing the recommendations from the SEO strategy, we created landing pages for high value keywords. These pages are designed to rank independently in Google and act as alternative homepages for the website, ensuring that users land on the most relevant page for their search.

Complete content management flexibility

Ballie Ballerson needed the autonomy in the CMS to update content, create new pages and set up new ticket types. We built their website on WordPress using our modular components which provide complete flexibility to edit the website content, imagery and page layouts. Their marketing team now have the ability to move quickly in line with their campaigns.
