Online purchase became part of our life within no time. Within less than a decade people’s perspective of online purchase have changed. Many people who complained about the total idea of purchasing things online are now advocates of its benefits. Seeing the boom in online purchase many businesses jumped into e-commerce without much preparation. Those were the ones who didn’t realize the importance of digital marketing for e-commerce activities. Here we are trying to give you all an insight about one such case.

Increased demand for online shopping resulted in more and more businesses investing in e-commerce. Our client in the context is one such client who extended their electronic gadget sales to selling online. Our client had electronic gadget outlets at different locations in the city. Indeed online selling is apt for gadgets. However, in many cases lack of marketing hit back badly. Our client here is a great example for this. What they did great was with the timing. They started this venture right after the COVID outbreak owing to the huge demand. Still, the performance diminished due to various reasons.

Data security

 As the number of e-commerce sites increased rapidly. The problems related to them also surface. There was a time during the pandemic when data breach of a very big company was in the discussion of almost everyone. This resulted in a reverse trend in online shopping affecting mostly the newcomers. Our client was one among them. The sales gradually reduced.

Customer experience

 When the customer base was less, the service section was running smoothly. However, for our client, customer handling became difficult while the number of customers increased. Listing the items according to the preferences became difficult. Due to the inefficient data handling, identifying the favorite items of customers became a mess. This added to the gradual reduction of customer base. It was evident that customers are shifting to other platforms. However, they managed to add more online customers using their customer base from different outlets. But, this cannot be considered as a solution for the problem. 

High competition

As mentioned before, the time our client stepped into e-commerce was not a very easy time. The competition was high. It only increased due to the pandemic spreading everywhere. Even the local shop owners started a version of e-commerce using messaging applications. Many others started reseller businesses individually using other social media platforms as well. This extraordinary scenario created a disadvantageous situation for our client.

Added to that other major competitors were using newer tactics. Our client also made attempts to compete with different tactics. But, most of them were traditional marketing tactics. Needless to say, the overall effect of all those did not help the business much.

Lack of one-point contact

The contact channel was scattered. For each process, different contact channels were there. This created big issues especially related to returns and refunds. Message channels and different call channels created confusion among the customers. This in turn resulted in delayed returns and refund confirmations. There was also an increase in the complaints from the customers.

Seller – customer identity issues

As the demand increased, our clients started to include other sellers as well as to the platform. With this another problem surfaced. Identification of the sellers and customers. They also faced problems with effectively connecting sellers with customers whenever necessary. Instead they tried to carry out the communications themselves. Needless to say, with their limited resources, it didn’t work well and turned contagious. 

Our intervention

We, as a digital marketing agency, identified the above issues with their e-commerce system. Also, the issues were not solvable just by digital marketing. We had to involve our e-commerce experts to make things right for our client. The problems were discussed in detail by considering them individually. Then our coordinators were given the task to involve the team of e-commerce specialists. With the joint effort, we were able to produce a detailed action plan. We had another round of discussion with the client’s representatives. There we discussed the execution of the action plan, to identify the priority of actions to be done. 

Following are the major activities from the action plan.

Data analysis for understanding the customer preferences

As mentioned, customer experience was a big issue. The items on display and offers fetched very less response. One of the reasons for this was the failure in identifying the customer preferences. However, with our data analysis the customer preferences were identified and marketing plans for some major items were also delivered.  

Website and application revamp for better item listing

We developed a fresh looking website with additional sorting and filter options. Thus ensured easy navigation and better item discovery for customers. The same modifications were done in their mobile application as well also with extra features to point and shoot at objects to discover similar products. We also introduced a provision to display offers based on the basis of their filtered results. This turned super-helpful for sellers to take their new products to customers.

Interactive landing page for customer issues

We created a landing page exclusively for integrated customer service. We used insights from data analysis to identify the major concerns of customers. Then we classified them according to various parameters like gravity of the concern, frequency etc. With all this information, we were able to prepare an interactive landing page with all the possible issues customers can have. We also included buttons to make calls and WhatsApp communication as well. This addition was a huge hit as the customer appreciation was flowing in after the update. 

Using SMM to highlight the efforts towards data security

Even though the data security was intact for our client, they failed to market that efficiently. We planned a campaign on social media to highlight this advantage of client service. We also included the data security part in all social media descriptions. We did that directly and often indirectly. This indeed created a great impact in reinstating the reputation of our client as an e-commerce venture. 

SEO for offer contents

During revamp and other inclusions we made sure to include SEO contents based on the data analysis we did. We also ensured the offer posters are written in such a way that it aligns with the optimization criteria. We also made sure the product descriptions were rewritten with SEO compliance. 

Integrated digital marketing for better ranking

Along with the product descriptions, we also did SEO for other general contents on the page. We ensured the compatibility of schema for SEO and created a proper and efficient site map. We also worked on implementing a backlinking strategy. With all these we were aiming for increased organic traffic. 

We also conducted shopping ads campaigns with SEM and SMM, brand awareness programs and engagement campaigns on offers. 

Seller database preparation and new coordination channel

After the data analysis, we modified the database of sellers and customers. We categorized sellers according to popularity. We also created a new communication channel where the customer can reach out to the seller in the minimum possible steps.

Digital Marketing for Resorts

Digital marketing for resorts that are hit by the COVID-19 pandemic was an idea built on two factors. The first one being the fact that a recovery in any conventional approach would be time consuming. Also, the possibility of digital marketing for resorts have increased several folds as the internet penetration during the period was so high.

The scenario:

Owing to the COVID-19 outbreak, resorts were one of the sectors that received the mightiest blow. With airports remaining close, people continuing to home and borders growing stricter, leisure trips were the least probable activity during the pandemic. This scenario affected the resort industry so hard that a fast recovery was near to impossible for any holiday resorts.

The Case:

Here is a case study how one of the leading holiday resorts in Dubai managed to overcome the pandemic crisis by. Their readiness to act in bold even in the most difficult situation helped them to be one of the fastest to recover. The way we incorporated our experience in successful digital marketing for resorts to fight their crisis is something which we are proud to put on as an example to all.

The challenges:

Digital Marketing for Resorts

The overdependence on traditional marketing: Our client here, was super-convenient with the traditional marketing techniques and least preference was given to digital marketing. Especially with their cold social media presence and shortcomings including lack of integration and coordination among their online platforms.

The dull and not very responsive website: Even though there was an established website, it was loaded with some outdated contents and elements. Also the page was over crowded with ‘call to action’ nowhere in the beginning.

The shortcomings in the app resulted in less conversion: The user UI/UX design of the app were not up to the mark. The options that should lead to conversions were under-utilized.

The minimal level or lack of SEO, SMO and PPC: There was no proper SEO strategy due to which the keyword distribution in the website was poor. The social media postings were also inconsistent. Added to these, Google Ads usage was nil.

With the pandemic hitting so hard, most of the conventional marketing techniques were found obsolete. For any business, not milking the benefits of internet penetration increase during the pandemic would be a great setback.

Target audience
  • Any people residing within Dubai looking for a vacation or staycation.
  • Any people wishing to travel to Dubai by any means of transportation.
  • MNCs that regularly provide recreational activities.
  • Tour agencies within Dubai and from other major tourists contributing countries.
  • Frequent travelers.
  • Frequent visitors to Dubai.
The Action

As soon as we entered into terms with the client, we started analyzing the shortcomings of the website in detail. However, a preliminary analysis was already done. With insights from both the preliminary and detailed analyses, we prepared a report and shared it to the client. In the meeting we convinced our client that a total revamp of the website is necessary instead of the minimal modification they were suggesting.

After convincing the client and taking approval we executed the website revamp plan by our team of web developers, designers and content writers. From the older website we created a freshly brewed version. We were able to do this with minimal possible disturbance to the prevailing traffic to the website. We designed the newer version by keeping the base color scheme of the site matching the existing theme and logo.

Being aesthetically pleasing is only secondary for a website. We added the content part and other elements of the websites after careful optimization. Along with different page contents, blog and tourism guides helping the visitors to the country were also added with enough backlinking. With the objective of increasing organic traffic, we added contents and elements carefully and with good planning. This eventually worked. Within the next 16 weeks the primary effect was evident from the increased traffic that appeared in our data analysis.

With the objective to reach the people residing in Dubai, we carried out a special digital marketing for resorts by integrating all the possible methods. We used localized display ads, Bumper ads in YouTube on a limited scale by carefully selecting the timings to maximize reach. Along with that, we strengthened local SEO and SEO by our experienced team.

Aiming the probable tourists to Dubai, we incorporated certain keywords as the part of SEO. Also, we presented display ads in 20 selected countries that contributed the most tourists to Dubai on an average. We did this after analyzing the data of incoming tourists to Dubai from the previous 5 years.

Further we used email marketing too,  to crack the blockage. It was carried out with two separate contents for two different databases. One with all major MNCs and the other with all travel agencies.

Furthermore, social media accounts were also revamped and made sure regular postings were done. After the first two months of regular social media posting and minimal brand awareness campaigns, we started other social media campaigns which majorly included engagement, leads and app promotion campaigns.

Speaking of the app, as mentioned in the beginning, there were a number of shortcomings to deal with like lesser features available when compared to the website. Even though we resolved feature availability issues to an extent with website revamp, we had to attend certain UI/UX issues and limitations with call to action options later. For all the listed packages, ‘buy now’  buttons were installed with app special offers. To market the app, Social Media Marketing was done targeting frequent travelers and other frequent visitors to Dubai.
