connective3 & thortful

— From challenger brand to industry leader
"12 months ago, online greetings card marketplace thortful were seen as a challenger brand, competing for market share in an industry with significant media spend from big name brands. With a brief to deliver an organic search strategy focussed on improving rankings across core terms, we delivered an integrated SEO strategy so successful that they now capture more than 80% of the 'generic card market. We did this through a campaign combining on-site technical optimisation, and digital PR activity, which drove a nearly 500 links in 12 months.

Having previously captured 25% of the market, they now rank 1st for terms such as "funny cards", and "rude cards" and second for "birthday cards". They are now the market leader in this category, having overtaken well-established brands such as Moonpig and Card Factory.

These improvements, alongside wider improvements across other occasions, have seen their overall visibility increase by nearly 400% in less than a year. When lockdown came into effect in March, thortful were well positioned to take advantage of the surge in demand for online cards due to their increased organic visibility, and June 2020 saw their most successful trading month on record."

Testimonials

“We may not have won but we are so glad we were part of the event. We had the best time celebrating everything we have achieved. “The event was run seamlessly, the food was excellent, the DJ and the musicians were brilliant and a wonderful surprise. A great atmosphere all around!” - Louise Kidby, Head of Content.
Lintbells
“It’s fantastic to receive this recognition from the content awards for the engaging work we’ve worked closely with UST to deliver over the past two years. Producing genuinely exciting content for any B2B consultancy can be a challenge but we were lucky to partner with a client who encouraged us to push the boundaries, ditch the gung-ho consultancy spiel and get to the bottom of what makes UST truly different.” - Daisy Lockheart, Account Director.
The Frameworks
"Generating leads, driving traffic and growing our clients’ businesses is our passion. To be awarded Silver in the Advertising Campaign of the Year category at the UK Content Awards is an encouraging recognition of the unwavering dedication and enthusiasm of The Think Tank team."
The Think Tank
"Our team works really hard, it’s as simple as that, and entering the UK Content Awards meant we could finally give major recognition to that effort outside of just support and acknowledgement of accomplishment from internal leaders."
DesignMyNight
“Despite Hurricane’s size, we punch well above our weight, working alongside leading global brands and organisations. These longstanding partnerships are thanks to our teams’ stand-out creative thinking and the flawless level of service we offer our clients. We’re so proud to be nominated for this award and we can’t wait for the big night.” – John Lanyon, Creative Director.
