What were the challenges?
Any change to the Google algorithm poses a challenge for marketers but for Masteel UK Limited it led them to completely reconsider their site design and website build.
Initially the website rebuild was done in house but after seeing big drops in search rankings, discussions began with AZoNetwork to see what could be done.
Masteel and AZoNetwork began their working relationship in 2009, initially creating and hosting content on AZom.com, one of our industry specific sites.
The AZoNetwork web services team took over the build of a new website and used the extensive marketing, design and industry knowledge to start putting the plans together.
Our digital marketing solutions for Masteel
Whenever we undertake a new project, the first thing we consider is the User Experience (UX):
- What is the purpose of the website?
- Who are the target personas?

With that in mind we started the process of creating a site that not only provided a great user experience but also had a smart design and was optimised for key search terms.
The process of optimising the site included a 12-month SEO campaign for the keywords that would help Masteel to increase their online awareness and generate new business.
Once the website was optimised for lead generation, we worked on integrating the new leads within their CRM system so that they could manage them more effectively.
Our most recent results (as of Jan 21) saw a 65% increase in organic traffic that has not only lead to a 10% increase in visitor-to-enquiry but a 73% increase in overall enquiries. Fantastic results that have helped Masteel to generate business growth.
The traffic has increased to such a level, that it's double what it was when we built the original website...
The CRM integration has allowed Masteel to easily manage new leads and to follow up and nurture them if they are not in the buying stage. The manual task of inputting data has been removed.
The relationship between Masteel and AZoNetwork is now entering its 14th year. 2021 will be another big year for the partnership with plans already in place for:
