Create an SEO and user-friendly website

This is not only a long-term marketing strategy, but it is also going to be your shop front, so it pays to get this right the first time. Look at some of your favourite brand’s websites for inspiration and to understand what they provide. Having organic traffic come to your website should be your first priority.

The website should have everything you provide, images and everything should be easy to navigate. Next, it needs to be optimised for search engines with relevant keywords on each page. For example, if you provide luxury clothing like Gods Gift world, then this should be a keyword implemented on your home page. If you provide streetwear t-shirts, then this should also be a keyword on the relevant page.

Here are some things to consider:

  • Create engaging content on trending topics in your industry
  • Perform thorough keyword research before writing content
  • Add relevant keywords to landing pages, metadata, and titles
  • Use schema to make SERPS more enticing
  • Improve load speed and other technical aspects

Tell a compelling brand story

Brands that are authentic and have a story of how they started are much more likely to be remembered and offer lasting impressions to resonate with their audience. If you want your audience to hear about your brand and catch news headings, then you need to create a story to create great first impressions. You can do this by creating a detailed “about us” page.
