The Brief

Having worked with Beyond Retail’s companies, Tap Warehouse and Drench, since the summer of 2019 to improve their search rankings, the team at Evolved has become experts in the home improvement sector.

Last year the main objective was to achieve our organic forecasted revenue target for Beyond Retail, and we were tasked with improving brand awareness through digital PR efforts, aiming for consistent coverage helping both Tap Warehouse and Drench to grow brand presence through targeted content and outreach.

Our Approach

We changed our approach and targets for 2022, including:

  • Focusing more resource on reactive Digital PR campaigns.
  • Submitting more expert commentary to journalists.
  • Increasing the authority of Beyond retail as experts in their field.
  • Building relationships with journalists, who now come to us for expert opinions and imagery/products to review.

Since beginning Digital PR on both accounts, Tap Warehouse and Drench have grown a powerful backlink profile with our link-building efforts and tactics, by producing quality content that journalists are eager to cover in their publications.

We built 627 links for Drench from these tactics alone in the first 24 months of working on growing the backlink profile, and 526 for Tap Warehouse. These backlinks were of great quality and relevance and therefore contributed to improving search engine rankings of these sites. Examples of topically relevant links built towards these sites are Real Homes, KBB Daily, Homes & Property, Ideal Home, House Beautiful, Country Living, Your Home Style, Property Central, Grand Designs, Good Homes Magazine, and many more.

Evolved’s SEO team also built links on national news sites with large monthly readerships* to provide them with maximum brand exposure. Some highlight links include Evening Standard (19.2M), Express ((106.2M), MSN (878.1M), and the Mirror (94.7M).

The team also prioritised building links on lifestyle publications where readership included Beyond Retail’s target audience. There was the benefit of receiving links from these strong news publications that write about topics that linked to Beyond’s brand. Links were secured in Elle, Red Online, Stylist, Prima, and Good To Know.

Choosing a digital marketing agency is one of the most challenging decisions for any e-commerce company. After receiving tenders from 4 agencies we decided to work with Evolved and are very pleased we did.

Our SEO activities have seen our organic presence continually increase every month since we started work in spring 2017. Evolved are a great team to work with, they cut right to the chase and are practical and pragmatic.

Our PPC efforts had been stagnant for a while and we’d begun to lose faith in the channel, however, the fresh view taken by Evolved and the complete reinvention of our approach has meant we’re in a completely different place now. The results we're achieving from PPC are fantastic, with huge gains across our KPIs, a dramatic increase in YoY performance, improved ROI, and a consistently imaginative approach to service delivery by the team.

I’m very happy to recommend Evolved Search. They truly understand our market and always bring exciting ideas to the table. We look forward to this growing further and continuing to deliver outstanding results.
