Case Study: Booming Acres – Transforming a Mushroom Grow Kit Company

OBJECTIVE

The client, Booming Acres, approached us with the decision to revamp their website, seeking a fresh start with a focus on enhanced performance, SEO, increased customer loyalty, and overall sales growth. They needed a complete redesign to improve user experience, optimize for search engines, and enhance their Google Ads strategy. Affordable Ads Group was tasked with this critical transformation.

The objective was clear: redesign and migrate Booming Acres’ website from Shopify to WooCommerce without losing their existing rankings and traffic. Following the migration, our goal was to bolster their authority in the mushroom cultivation industry through high-quality content and E-E-A-T (Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness) signals. Additionally, we aimed to:

  • Boost their online presence with an effective lead generation and email marketing strategy
  • Optimize their Google Ads campaigns for higher ROAS
  • Increase customer loyalty and overall sales

Careful planning and execution were essential to ensure a seamless transition, maintain organic traffic, enhance customer loyalty, optimize Google Ads performance, and achieve significant growth in sales and overall website performance.
