Quantity vs Quality
Many companies, particularly in the luxury fashion and accessories industry are lead to believe that an increase in traffic, no matter where it’s come from, is the sign of a successful website. Whilst traffic growth is an important factor, it’s the quality of traffic that you are driving to your site that will benefit you in the long run.

- Audience mapping
- Long tail key phrase research
- Tailored content strategies
