The marketing engine driving a motoring tech brand
We’re been on a real journey with motoring technology specialist Aguri.
What started out as a venture to refresh their brand identity and develop a new website turned into a long-haul partnership under which we now provide a full-service marketing mix on a monthly basis.
But let’s reverse a little.
Aguri supply specialised technology for motorists, including sat navs, dash cams and speed trap detectors built for trucks, buses, coaches and motorhomes.
With world leading sat nav mapping software and unique products, Aguri approached Cornerstone to help it achieve a renewed vision of amplifying its innovative and high-quality offering.
So, let’s get up to speed…
Road mapping the goals and objectives
Aguri’s aim was to increase brand and product awareness to their key audiences and ultimately drive sales.
We proposed a year-long fully integrated marketing strategy to allow Aguri to sustainably build their website and develop brand awareness over time.
We placed streamlined customer journeys at the forefront of the strategy, including clear messaging to highlight its strengths including excellent customer service and innovative and reliable product range.
We evaluated their existing brand and web presence and developed a new website with e-commerce and intelligent features including a compare product tool and live chat function to make the buying process smoother.
Driving web traffic
- During the first 12 months from launch there was an impressive 11.89% year-on-year increase in transactions and a 3.58% increase in revenue.
- By improving SEO and optimising key words, we quickly pushed Aguri to the top of the Google rankings – a shift of 477 places – and gained 591 places on Bing.
- Position-based conversions were up 26.68% on the organic traffic channel, up 5.74% from paid search, and up 59.39% on social.
- The website design and functionality gave Aguri a strong visual identity, increasing web visits by 22% and reducing bounce rates by 99%.
Steering brand awareness and reputation
With the Aguri website motoring we focused on its traffic slip roads, targeting audiences through social, PR and digital channels including PPC (pay-per-click) advertising.
