The Challenge

Burleydam Garden Centre had a website built by another company, but didn’t feel it was advancing the business quickly enough. Adrian and his team wanted to get more out of the website, and this became more important during the Covid lockdowns. 

The Solution

Engage Web proposed a Facebook Ads campaign to reach targeted customers and significantly boost online sales. 

An SEO campaign including regular content was also agreed with the aim of making the site more visible in search rankings and drawing in traffic. 

Success factors

The site exceeded Burleydam’s long-term target of generating £500K in gross income much sooner than expected, within the first twelve months.  

During lockdown, the website alone managed to bring in one-third of the income the store would have done had it been open. 

The Facebook Ads campaign proved to be a particular success. After initially agreeing a £500 per month budget, early results showed this was being returned multiple times over, prompting Burleydam to increase their investment. 

Moving forward

With the garden centre reopened, Burleydam now has two high-performing channels through which to sell its products, and continues to reap the benefits of Engage Web’s SEO, copywriting, Google Ads and Facebook Ads services.
