Company Website Development
As usual, we started with the website (on-page) optimization. The existing (old) website was in no way appealing-enough or optimized from the user’s point of view. After a serious discussion with the client, we decided to renovate/redesign the website from scratch.
A team of our best developers and designers was given the job of creating the best-fit theme layout for the website. As you can see, the layout was designed such that all the important information, including top products, offers, about the company, etc. is added to the homepage itself.
Moreover, easy interlinking has been done to ensure all the pages are easily accessible and the website is easy to navigate through. The top of the homepage provides contact information, making it easy for the users to contact the company.
Since it is an online shopping website with a focus on fashion products, we included sufficient spaces for images and videos in order to make the website appealing and good-looking.
Once the theme was developed, our developers created strong functionality to match the website design. The contact form, a blog, a shopping cart, payment systems, search option, filters, etc. were added to ensure an overall smooth shopping experience for the end-user.
There is also a user section, which can be accessed after sign-up/sign-in. Here, users can manage their accounts, orders, transactions, returns, etc.
Also, we got the perfect, high-quality content developed for the website pages and placed it at relevant places, providing adequate and up-to-date information about the company, story, ethics & philosophy, fabrics, contact info, among others.
You can see the result now! The website has turned out to be better than we imagined. The client thinks the same.

Website Optimization (On-Page)
Once the new website for Wear&Smile was developed, we started with the optimization part, which included the following steps:
Keyword research and placement
We used tools like Google Search, Keyword Planner, and KeywordTool.io to find a list of all the best keywords to target for the project. These keywords will be used in both on-page and off-page marketing techniques.
New content was created for each of the pages (products, categories, etc.) as well as for the homepage of the website. We placed all the relevant keywords at all the right places in the content to ensure that search engine bots can easily identify them and rank accordingly.
Meta Tags Optimization
Separate meta tags, including Meta Title, keywords and descriptions, were created (with target keywords) and added to each page on the website to ensure that each page is recognized and ranked for its unique keywords.
To make sure that the new website of Wear&Smile was as easily accessible on mobile devices as on the desktop, we optimized it to be responsive. The website layout itself is very user-friendly and easy to browse.
Internal & External Linking
To make it easier for users to browse the content and find products on the site, we interlinked all the important and relevant pages with each other as well as to the homepage. We also added a search option in the header part for optimal user experience.
The blog on the Wear&Smile website has a similar layout and theme as the main website to give a familiar appearance. The posts are added in a clear and fresh format with words that are easy to read.
Loading Speed Optimization
Many other elements on the website, including images and multimedia, website URL, sliders, ad spaces, etc. were optimized to ensure smooth customer experience and improved search visibility.

Off-Page SEO (Marketing)
After the website development & optimization were done, we moved on to the off-page marketing part. The job was assigned to a team of seasoned digital marketers with expertise in SEO, SMO, content marketing and other off-page things.
Content Marketing (Off-site)
We created and posted relevant, high-quality articles and blogs across top blogging sites on the internet in order to build a strong presence of the business in the online space, helping those who are looking for information or recommendations for buying natural, organic clothing in Sweden.
We also promoted the project through targeted guest blogging on authority websites in the niche.
Blog Posting On Website
The website business blog is naturally the best platform to promote products through strategic content. We utilized it in the best way by regularly posting tips, news, updates, and FAQs to help users for shopping on the Wear&Smile website.
Social Media Marketing
As it was a clothing website, social media was one of the best ways to attract new users and tell them about the products & benefits of this brand.
A dedicated team of social media marketers worked to promote the products 24*7 on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest by publishing product photos, videos, shopping guides, tips and more through the official company accounts. We also took the job of answering users’ queries on social media accounts of Wear&Smile.
We also regularly took the help of paid advertising feature on Facebook and Twitter to extend the reach of specific products/content through a meticulously crafted ad strategy.
“Spending money on Facebook ads & Google ads but still not getting sales from these channels? Let us improve that.”
Through a thorough analysis of the target market and customers, we prepared an email list of all the potential and existing customers of the brand. We used that list for direct marketing of the brand products and offers by sending customized emails and messages to the users.
For the promotion of the business and products on YouTube, we took the help of one or two industry influencers for getting the word out about a new launch or offer through specialized videos.
News and PR Marketing
We regularly published updates about new launches and offers by Wear&Smile on much popular news and PR (press release) sites as well as on the company blog.
Video Creation & Posting
We also created an official YouTube page for the brand and regularly posted videos related to clothing products, sustainability philosophy, manufacturing process, organic fabrics and more to help target users understand and connect with the brand in a more effective way.
Questions & Answers Activity
Last but not least, we took to question-answer websites like Quora and Yahoo Answers to resolve the queries of the potential customers and existing users of the brand, while at the same time telling them why they should choose Wear&Smile for shopping eco-friendly/ sustainable clothing.
