people requested driving directions to Ribs & Burgers venues across all Australian locations
Ribs & Burgers wanted to promote and increase sales in all of their 16 locations spread across Australia.
The main problem was that Ribs & Burgers had become a well-known brand but when it came to the sales they were falling short of their monthly targets. After digging a little deeper into the issue, it became obvious that whilst brand recognition was strong for this restaurant brand, there was a lack of its geographically-specific awareness amongst consumers. In simple words, people weren't aware of their nearby Ribs & Burgers restaurant layouts.
To tackle this gap between brand recognition and sales, we chose to focus on the Ribs & Burgers’ local online presence. The reason we took this approach, was to make more people aware of the Ribs & Burgers restaurants in their local areas.
Thanks to the close working relationship between Ribs & Burgers and Uplers, the partnership produced above average results and exceeded the brand’s expectations.
The local SEO campaign we ran for Ribs & Burgers attracted over 2 million unique visitors to their website, which is a significant increase of 28% in just 10 months.
The power of a local SEO strategy is that it targets geographically-specific customers who live near a venue, and are actively seeking what a restaurant has to offer.
By using a targeted keyword-strategy that was focused on locally driven search intent, we were able to generate over 30,000+ direct calls and contact form submissions for Ribs & Burgers on their website during this campaign.
During this 10-month campaign, a whopping 105,000+ people requested driving directions to Ribs & Burgers venues across all 16 Australian locations, via Google Maps.
On top of an impressive number of contact form enquiries, our targeted keyword research and local SEO optimisation helped Ribs & Burgers significantly improve their Google search rankings for a number of very important search phrases.
