HowWeDidIt

With a deep understanding of their audience we:
Paid Search was used to increase traffic but also strongly supported conversions
It was important to then work on conversion rate optimisation activity to make the most of the increased traffic
We then focused on YouTube advertising developing several high quality videos to boost awareness which in turn supported the paid search activity
We also supported with developing a number of case studies videos which were organic posted on YouTube

We partner with Hillsgreen because they understand how to market to farmers and have the skills to help Herdwatch manage our search campaigns to provide an ROI. Hillsgreen also understand the power of farmer testimonials and have supported us with producing the on-farm video case studies we use to tell the Herdwatch story, build our brand awareness and ultimately drive new leads into the business. I have no hesitation in recommending Hillsgreen as a marketing partner for your agricultural business
