Content Mapping

  • Analyzed website for mobile viewing (based on website analytics and viewer device behavior), to increase social engagement and business leads and deals
  • Our  objective based on the page view analytics was to reduce the bounce rate from 59% to 46% by creating content that viewers most enjoyed reading (creating customer personas and A/B testing would help reduce the bounce rate through relevant content). We also wanted to increase repeat visits (recency and latency), and reduce the length of brands purchase cycle (downloadable health videos), by making the client’s website mobile friendly (approximately 1/3 of the sites visitors were using mobile devices. To increase mobile activity the website’s content could be crafted to help the mobile viewer search while in their environmentally unique viewing conditions. This would include screen size proportions, on the go user behavior strategy design, and shopping behavior strategies that could be used to navigate users to relevant information quickly
  • Recommended that analytics from Brand’s Facebook page be linked to client’s website, and shopping cart app be installed in FB page to drive business to website shopping cart. (Social engagement analytics were missing from Google Analytics tracking)
  • Recommended that client measure all social media activity and campaigns on its digital properties
  • Social media monitoring should be performed throughout the year for business/competitor intelligence gathering (locally and nationally). Business leads, Brand advocate engagement, and blogger outreach campaign(s) including a content calendar were developed
  • Researched and analyzed several months of social media conversations (Google Analytics) from website and client’s keyword terms. This provided data on sentiment (brand mentions negative or positive), and business intelligence analysis
