02 The Challenge

Timbecon saw an opportunity to use eCommerce to serve a national market.

With storefronts in Melbourne and Perth, Timbecon’s ambition was to grow by developing its eCommerce presence and customer base nationally. This means competing against a number of large national competitors with large marketing budgets at their disposal. 

The challenge was how to build their brand presence online to ensure that they’re competing in search engines, create an eCommerce experience that delights, and keep customers coming back. 

03 Our Approach

A new eCommerce presence and marketing strategy to win.

We knew the team at Timbecon were passionate about woodworking and had a clear vision of what they wanted their business to become.

It was clear the business needed a new website and a digital marketing strategy to compete online. To ensure they were successful, we needed to first step back and uncover the biggest opportunities.

1. Discovery

Starting with our Discovery process, we researched the industry to better understand the greatest challenges and market opportunities to form an integrated strategy.

By understanding the products, services, and target market, we created an information architecture to support the user experience and search engine optimisation.

The process also uncovered an opportunity to use paid, owned, and earned media to compete with big market players at a fraction of the cost. 

2. eCommerce website design

The website was designed to be a one-stop shop for all your woodworking needs. The shopping experience needed to be consistent and supported by a content hub to answer users’ questions and provide multimedia DIY solutions.

To deliver this, the website was built on Mintox, our propriety content management system (CMS), which we’ve developed to support seamless content management, integrations, and first-class security.

Since the initial launch, we have also partnered with Timbecon to further optimise website performance. 

3. Digital marketing

We helped Timbecon rank for high-volume transactional search terms by using pay per click (PPC) advertising on Google Ads. On-page search engine optimisation (SEO) was supported with best practices to help build authority and trust with Google. We also used display advertising to build brand awareness and familiarity, as well as retargeting potential shoppers. 

04 The Outcome

Timbecon has experienced substantial growth online. 

We have been partnering with Timbecon now for over 6 years. During this time, they’ve experienced sustained growth in revenue coming via their website. This includes growing annual revenue by 48% in the last financial year. This is driven by a 41% lift in organic traffic and an 89% lift in paid traffic.
