The challenge

Australian online retailer, Chocolab offers personalised, gourmet chocolate which is perfect for gifting. Using only the finest Belgian Chocolate, the chocolatier is now well-known for being the master of providing the ultimate chocolate experience. For the undecided or the perfect chocolate-indulgent gift, Chocolab positions themselves as a premium quality experience.

For those who prefer retro chocolate bars, there's an abundance of everyday assortments which offer a variety of old-school classic flavours like Reese’s peanut butter, rocky road, and mint chocolate. But, there’s a reason why Chocolab is the leading gourmet online chocolate shop, and you’ll see why when browsing their website. Their professional chocolatiers will also hand-craft unique, personalised chocolate bars to your taste and preferences.

In a competitive retailing market, only those who craft truly specialised merchandise will find loyal customers and truly stand out.

To continue their upward growth, Chocolab decided to partner with OMG.

Our digital consultants formulated a comprehensive SEO solution for delivering a strategic approach that brought their customers back time and time again. They were ranking in the top 3 spots for 185 competitive keywords. Plus, they were seeing 60% uplifts in organic traffic, along with over a 14:1 return on investment purely from SEO.

Chocolab is now the chosen sweet paradise of personalised chocolate gifts - even though they’re up against a wide range of established direct competitors.

Breaking down Chocolab's winning strategy

01

Full phase SEO strategy to rise to the ranks of organic search results

By focusing on tried, tested and proven strategy, OMG was able to get Chocolab moving up in the right direction...up to the top of search engine results. In fact, before Chocolab partnered with OMG, their number of keywords in the top 3 positions increased from 15 to 185 - that’s a stunning 170 spots!

02

Strategic adjustment and optimisation of on-site elements across the site

After conducting an audit of the site to identify large scale issues, we were able to implement a number of strategies to factor into the ranking algorithm. This included the creation of compelling copy to attract, inspire and retain the prospective and target audience.

We leveraged our expertise in SEO to help Chocolab have a clear edge over their competition.

03

Technical and offsite SEO to ensure maximum visibility

Technical and offsite SEO ensured the provision of internal links from relevant, high-authority pages to boost performance of pages in search engines. We were also able to replicate backlinks from outdated, low quality pages.

The results? We were not only able to increase rankings, but increase dwell time, by keeping visitors on the site for longer, which helped increase their conversion rate.
