The Challenge

Acquiring New Customers Against All Odds

With fewer holidays and family-centered events in Q2 2020 to capitalize on, ScanCafe generally experiences a seasonal decline in performance, but the rise of COVID-19 and its resulting economic impact exacerbated the usual seasonal low. The marketing team had to act quickly despite unpromising early retail and ecommerce trends to capture as much demand as possible by focusing their efforts on site optimization and conversion.

The Solution

Identifying & Taking Advantage of New Opportunities

As Wpromote observed increased online traffic due to stay-at-home orders, the team closely monitored and tracked trending organic and paid industry keywords. Our experts partnered with the ScanCafe team to optimize ScanCafe’s website content to target people searching for terms related to DIY, family activities, or spring cleaning, with the goal of capturing and converting new users.

In Q2 2020, Wpromote worked with ScanCafe to:

  • Optimize website content to be more conversion focused, turning new users into engaged customers
  • Shift content and messaging strategy to align with changing consumer behaviors and new expectations
  • Leverage organic and paid search insights to amplify content and achieve greater ROI
