Doune the Rabbit Hole Festival

Multi-channel digital marketing including site development.

This year we have worked with Doune the Rabbit Hole Festival on a full scale digital marketing campaign. From the start, we mapped out our priorties alongside the DTRH team. Having already built up a brilliant audience from previous years we were heavily focused on rewarding loyalty, increasing engagement rates and communicating with this audience about 2016’s festival. Local SEO was going to be important and a great opportunity to grow new attendees from the local area. This involved creating a brand new website and newly designed social media with a range unique content designed to accurately reflect the intimacy and fun of the festival.

Waving Bear got to work in pinpointing the issues with the website. We gave it a complete overhaul to bring it up to date and fixed simple errors such as missing information, broken links, missing meta and image resolution.
The strength of the site was also a major priority, with a significant link building campaign launched to ensure that the site would gain authority within the search engines. Keywords were also revised to ensure that again, DTRH was cropping up in local searches.  This helped ensure a better flow of targeted traffic and a more diverse range of rankings with the SERPs.

Social media was also incredibly important for us on this campaign. The festival already had a good number of followers across Facebook and Twitter, we focused on engaging these users and increasing the following. We created a social media plan and a lot of unique content before devising a range of competitions focused on driving engagement and gaining a broader reach.

Academy of Music and Sound

Flexible information driven website for The Academy of Music and Sound

We were asked to create modern looking information based website on behalf of The Academy of Music and Sound, a nationwide education organisation with seven centres situated in key locations around the UK offering first class music education for the 21st Century.

Following on from meetings with the business development team we strategically designed and developed a new website for the organisation which would enable them to showcase their new online courses. They wanted the site to look modern and show off the individual courses that they were offering. It was a simple but flexible site with they would be able to change and add to as their offering developed. It should enable potential students to easily access the information they needed and communicate easily with the admissions team. By adding in simple contact forms and live chat we were able to achieve everything the team had asked for.
