Navitas Case Study

The Strategy

Boosting Revenue with Precision Targeting

Collaboration was key for understanding the landscape our client was in. By coordinating closely with the Nottingham Venues marketing team we ensured the site didn’t merely attract any generic traffic but the right kind of audience.

Utilising sitemaps and keyword research tools, keywords were not only identified but also grouped into semantic clusters based on search volume and relevance, with perfect interlinking across our optimised content.

This layer of intelligent keyword management guided the first part of our content creation phase, ensuring that the website hit all the right notes with its target audience.

Streamlining Content for Maximum Engagement

Content reigns supreme. In tandem with Nottingham Venues’ marketing team, we rejuvenated the existing content to echo current search preferences and user inclinations.

The refreshed content, brimming with semantic clusters of keywords, anchored a dominant position in pertinent searches. This has evolved into a rapid content optimisation workflow between our teams.

Optimising User Experience Across All Devices

Mobile isn’t just a device; it’s what Google considers number one with mobile-first indexing. Recognising the modern user’s penchant for mobile browsing, our strategies were all-encompassing regarding keeping page speed as quick as possible. Our work on the technical side of the site, utilising our live editor and programmatic fixes, ensured a swift, streamlined, and user-friendly browsing experience across devices, even using a non-standardised CMS.

Achieving Web Perfection: The Path to Zero Errors

Before any tactical deployment, a rigorous site audit was performed to identify bottlenecks. We applied a comprehensive 4815 programmatic technical fixes that spanned a wide range of site improvements, alongside plenty of manual fixes. 

This included adding social previews, optimising meta descriptions and titles, integrating titles to links, modifying link targets to open externally, and adding new alt images and title texts throughout the website. 

The result was a more functionally robust site with regards to its technical SEO, with majorly enhanced mobile and desktop page speed metrics as a significant accomplishment here.

Internal Link Reinforcement

SEO isn’t just about visibility; it’s about navigation too. Delving into Nottingham Venues’ internal link profile, we constructed a lattice of interlinked content, elevating user engagement and SEO hierarchies, and guiding users and search engines effortlessly. 

We added multiple internal links across 90 pages, utilising programmatic software to repeat the use of an internal link across the whole website for keyword mentions. We’ve also utilised generative AI to add internal links to our optimised content, by feeding it a sitemap and our target keywords. You can read all about an abridged method to do this here.

Calendarisation and Scheduling

By developing a new blog calendar, we could schedule posts aligned with search trends, seasonal activities, and user demand. This content schedule served as a roadmap, helping the team plan their future long-form content. 

We’re evolving on this by using a content matrix, utilising our best and most relevant ideas against principles seen in leading marketing literature, for example, factors known to generate interest upon immediate contact with the material. This has given us hundreds of ideas that are custom-made to convert, for us to use in our future content calendar.
