HOW WE GREW THE BREAD & BUTTER PROJECT FROM 7 WEBPAGES TO 51
The Bread & Butter Project is Australia’s first social enterprise bakery. They invest 100% of their profits into providing training and employment opportunities for refugees and asylum seekers in Australia and educating the next generation of Australian bakers.
In order for The Bread & Butter Project to help as many refugees and asylum seekers as possible, they needed to:
- increase awareness of their mission amongst the general public
- grow their visibility
- boost traffic to their website
As a not-for-profit, identifying a way these objectives could be pursued at minimal expense, and with long term sustainability in mind was critical.
Offering our services entirely pro-bono, we conducted a thorough analysis of The Bread & Butter Project’s current online presence, SEO visibility, and target audience.
The technical SEO plan focused on website optimisation, as well as addressing visibility issues we’d discovered; The Bread & Butter Project’s website had been accidentally deindexed following a site migration a year prior.
Our content strategy laid out an extensive website restructure (including the addition of a new Retail Products hub) that would enhance user experience and increase audience engagement. The restructure also focused on growing organic visibility, improving sales, and driving donations and consumer support.
We also devised a targeted SEO campaign, using a Pillar-Cluster model content strategy designed to grow The Bread & Butter Project’s ranking across non-branded keywords and leverage current consumer trends.
And to make the entire project possible, we assembled a team of pro-bono volunteers whose skill sets collectively covered everything from website development to content writing. This team worked together, using a centralised content governance model we created, to provide The Bread & Butter Project with a content pipeline that’s consistent, long-term, and zero cost.
The Bread & Butter Project’s Board were excited by our proposal and gave us their full approval.
Over the next few months, we’ll be working with another pro bono provider – a specialist website developer – to implement our recommended site map. This will grow The Bread & Butter Project website from just 7 pages to 51+, giving each product its own dedicated website page, significantly expanding the site’s SEO keyword potential, and greatly improving user experience.
In the meantime, we got The Bread & Butter Project site reindexed and pushed forward with our content efforts, which have already seen them secure:
- a 2558% increase in monthly organic traffic
- top 10 Google positions for 5 new, non-branded keywords
- top 50 Google positions for 67 new, non-branded keywords
And best of all, while delivering this growth we helped The Bread & Butter Project spread further awareness of their core mission and unique values.
Now, their delicious bread, the life-changing opportunities they provide to people in need, and their impact on the community has an online home worthy of the cause.
And all at zero cost to The Bread & Butter Project.
