After years of spinning its wheels trying to break into the email marketing vertical, we grew email marketing traffic more than 300% in the first nine months of the email template gallery.

The Challenge

SendGrid was a well-established email API frequently used by businesses for transactional email use cases, attempting to break into the email marketing space with an email marketing campaign. After around two years of struggling to break into email marketing, marketing leaders were interested in a way to build more content marketing traffic to the site via organic search channels. Problem was, email marketing is an extremely difficult vertical for content marketing.

The Process

In an extensive keyword research process, I identified an opportunity for us to gain a foothold in email marketing by adding a new feature to the site: A free email marketing template gallery. We could create and crowdsource email template designs and make them available via the website.


The gallery itself would target the keyword "email templates," while specific templates and subcategory pages would target more detailed keywords "restaurant marketing templates" to create a content property that was essentially unlimited in terms of acquisition scope and capability, and we were able to do this without having to deal with the overhead and difficulty of traditional content marketing -- outlining, writing, editing and maintaining.


We launched with a small number of templates and continually added to it over the next nine months. The gallery is available here: https://sendgrid.com/free-templates/

The Solution

After years of spinning its wheels trying to break into the email marketing vertical, we grew email marketing traffic more than 300% in the first nine months of the email template gallery.

Orofino Restaurant

I started this account from day 1 before the restaurant opened it's doors in 2016. We built up momentum and were maxed out of tables from day 1. It's been a wild ride with expanding into a new space, adding in a pizza oven for authentic Napolateon pizza, adding in catering options, and now onto opening second location just for private events and catering!

ROAS

Summergrove Halls

Summergrove Halls are a hotel and restaurant based in Cumbria. They had used various other channels in the past to try and drive growth of both room and restaurant bookings but found all were unsuccessful. Summergrove Halls' challenge was their location, whilst adjacent to the Lake District was too far to be a viable selling point and the hotel was functional rather than boutique or luxury. They had a niche audience of walkers, people working on nearby projects and people visiting the nearby hospital.
