The Challenge

The daunting challenge for Bajaj Finserv was though they have been successful in driving online traffic and sales from Tier 1 and metro cities. But, their penetration in Tier 2 & Tier 3 or semi urban & rural areas, was less.

“The client’s primary aim was to generate traffic and sales from organic search, beyond the metro and tier 1 cities.”

The challenges for generate organic traffic and were –

  • Identifying effective methods and approaches to improve reach to semi urban and rural customers
  • Strategies and channels to be used to bring about focused traffic from wider targeted areas
  • How to leverage local organic searches to increase traffic from the targeted cities.
  • Maintaining comparable cost of acquisition
  • Targeting unexplored cities to support substantial business growth
  • Building a loyal base of customers

The Solution

Backed by intensive research and planning, the first step was to undertake an in-depth competitor analysis. We did a thorough analysis of those competitors who were successfully targeting the Tier 2 cities and beyond.

Organic search strategies –

  • Identifying list of cities and planning phase-wise distribution for different set of cities
  • Analyzing the search and language preferences & identifying key phrases
  • Dedicated pages for each city with location-specific content addressing all possible search queries for the region, to bring-in the right users
  • Supporting pages and content in different formats like images, infographics, videos, etc
  • Identifying platforms used by the target audience; and using potential channels to promote the different formats of content for interactive user experience

The Outcome

The website was ranking in top with almost all the generic product (short tail) and intent based phrases (long tail) in 30 odd cities and areas.
