Digital growth

Competing online as a retail or fashion brand can be challenging. From hyper-competitive search results, big brands dominating the market share, picky customers with too much choice, constantly evolving Google algorithms, and more. It can be hard to know where to begin.

Our specialist SEO, content, paid media & digital PR teams have a wealth of experience in delivering results for retail brands. And our process always begins with understanding your brand, your products and your target buying personas.

Then, we create a tailored strategy that combines the channels that will have the biggest impact on your sales in a way that maximises your ROI. We combine this with bespoke reporting on the metrics that matter the most to you and your team.


Grow your brand organically with retail SEO Open Tabbed Content


To excel in the retail & fashion industry online, your website needs to be technically sound with a smooth conversion journey. Our SEO team will work with you to understand how your users (and Google) currently access and navigate your website. Through conversion-rate optimisation we ensure that there are no obstacles between your audience and purchasing your products.

Whether you’re on a common CMS or using a custom CMS solution, our team can deliver the results you need. And as Shopify SEO specialists we understand how to increase your e-commerce performance whilst maintaining a sleek UX & design.

Audience, competitor and market research underpins all of our SEO strategies. From identifying product seasonality to capitalising on new search trends, we always have our finger on the pulse of your market.

Targeted content is the key to reaching your target market wherever they are, and whatever they search Open Tabbed Content


People have a tendency to research products and ask questions relating to products before making a purchase. This is especially true in the retail space.

Once our SEO team identifies the questions that your audience are searching for, our content team will produce highly targeted & optimised content to place your brand in front of potential customers at every step of their research. This keeps your company front & centre in the minds of your market.

Our content doesn’t end with blog articles & buying guides however. Optimised category & product page copy is key to growing the organic rankings that will drive sales. 

Connecting your blog content to products (and purchases!) is where our team excels.

Digital PR

Implementing a combined organic strategy including both digital PR and SEO is the key to great success for retail brands. Creating campaigns that not only align with your target audience but can also be linked back to relevant products and category pages. Using keyword research and in depth analysis, a digital PR strategy can work alongside SEO to understand which pages/terms are going to see the biggest impact. 

Incorporating a product PR strategy is a great way to engage relevant audiences and increase authority and trustworthiness. This can be done through providing samples for review to large publications or engaging bloggers and nice sites. We have found that this activity is a fantastic way of gaining authentic and trustworthy reviews.

Paid media

Maximising the use of Dynamic Product Ads to show customers the best products for their search, aligning paid campaigns with seasonal events and promotions, and remarketing to those individuals who may be looking to purchase again, or who didn’t quite make it to the finish line are all absolutely key in Paid Marketing.

Let our knowledge and expertise expand sales for your company. We’ll use all the assets at our disposal to help increase your ROI.

Our retail digital services

Audience research

Our keyword & audience research is a focal point of our onboarding and helps us identify the search terms and questions that your potential customers are seeking answers for.

Understanding what your audience is looking for, and identifying seasonal trends, allows us to best target the search terms that are going to generate sales, giving you the fastest ROI.

Competitor Research

By understanding what your competition is doing well (and not so well) we can identify where they’re investing their budget and where their SEO & paid media activity is focused.

With this, we can identify the most profitable avenues for your digital strategy as well as finding the lower competition quicker wins.

Our analysis will uncover keyword rankings, traffic estimations, page design & UX opportunities, backlink gaps, content gaps and paid media reviews.

Earn Backlinks & Coverage

By staying in the know of market trends and shifts in consumer behaviour our digital PR campaigns are more likely to generate powerful backlinks to the pages that need them the most.

Combining digital PR links with SEO research into keyword seasonality means that we’re always pushing the products and pages that are most in demand.

Content that Converts

Our content places your brand in front of your target audience when they’re looking for your products.

Ensuring that all content across your website is engaging, enticing and showcasing your product features is the key to driving sales.

Attribution of revenue is key, and that’s why we focus on creating content that drives sales.
