Ambition

Equinox Kombucha is a leading organic Kombucha brand in the UK.

Their digital ambitions were:

  • To boost online visibility and ranking for competitive priority terms
  • To drive traffic to the site and generate more sales via the online store
  • To increase brand awareness and elevate the perception of the brand from a niche kombucha product to a popular soft drink
  • To create engaging and useful content to engage and delight potential (and existing) customers.

Strategy

Following a major rebrand and site launch in February 2019, our specialists conducted in-depth SEO keyword research and competitor analysis to identify the optimum site structure and inform SEO copy for key pages.

Our content strategy was to focus on semantic topics that relate to Equinox Kombucha’s key pillars to normalise and demystify their kombucha. The strategy was focused on encouraging Kombucha-curious customers to give this new and exciting drink a try, while providing Kombucha-evangelists with informative and engaging content to keep them coming back for more.

Leveraging social listening tools, keyword research and further competitor research, we identified Equinox Kombucha’s target personas and revealed some of the main questions people have regarding Kombucha.

Mapping these findings to Equinox’s key five brand values (Taste, Health, Craft, People and Vibe) and coordinating with their sales calendar, we set out to create hyper-relevant content designed to rank in search results, and attract organic traffic.

We collaborated with nutritionists to create authoritative content that readers and search engines can trust, which was especially important for health-related articles where the search results were largely dominated by health-specific sites.

Semetrical won ‘Best Integrated Content Campaign’ at the European Content Awards 2020 for our work with Equinox Kombucha to boost rankings for priority terms and increased online conversions by 79%.
