#Challenges

Yinzershop & Gokimco needed Stronghold Marketing Efforts to Improve Brand Awareness

Yinzershop and Gokimco had excellent product varieties. But the craziest thing was that they lacked virtual footfall and organic traffic. Even after having stellar products, they struggled to attract customers and improve their reach. Being new-ish in the industry, they had to familiarize the brand with the target customers. Providing value and quality was their goal, but they didn't become entirely successful in taking the products to the market and stamping their value. Improving organic SEO and creating a brand personality was crucial for them to influence customers' purchase decisions, and provide them with a touchpoint to interact.

Though people bought their products, Yinzershop and Gokimco strived to position their brand to improve engagement consistently. Keeping a community of customers around them was difficult in the initial stages without strong support. Gokimco and Yinzershop needed compelling and customer-facing content on their website to appear trustworthy, boost credibility, expand their reach, brand awareness, organic traffic, and convert potential leads to customers.
