Founders Make Some Noise
Tide is a UK financial platform providing banking services for small and mid-size enterprises (SMEs). As part of its strategy to target entrepreneurs and business owners, the brand ran an impactful campaign ‘Founders Make Some Noise’. The ad features three business owners (who are also Tide members), highlighting how the platform can help them spend less time on admin and more time on doing what they love. The 30s video ad successfully captured people’s attention and inspired them to take action with empowering messages and real-life stories.
Takeaway: Deliver a relatable and compelling story in your videos. In addition, short videos always perform better than lengthy ones, so aim to get your message across within 30 seconds.
Coinbase’s SEO Strategy
Coinbase created a learning space providing answers to all things crypto: Guides and explainers, tips, and insights on the crypto ecosystem. While most blogs about crypto are complicated and overwhelming, Coinbase’s blogs are well-structured and precise with just enough information – everyone from beginners to experts can digest it. They include just a few backlinks in key phrases, so readers will not be annoyed. This content strategy helped Coinbase cut through the noise and beat its competitors. Their website ranks high in ToFu keywords such as “what is cryptocurrency,” “dogecoin,” and “how to buy NFT.”
What is worth noting is that Coinbase has a different content format in the How To Buy section. It is straightforward with a short intro and a clear step-by-step guide on how to buy crypto. This is because a person searching for this query is likely to be in the buying mode – they already know cryptocurrency, and it is unnecessary to explain it again. Besides, it is said that Google loves showing lists for the “how-to” keyword. Although Google never confirmed it, a step-by-step instruction really makes it easier to see and digest. These tactics helped Coinbase rank high in important ToFu keywords like “how to buy Shiba Inu coin,” “how to buy dogecoin,” and “how to buy safe moon.”
Takeaway: Understanding user search intent is essential if you want to rank high on Google. While it is great to optimize for keywords that drive traffic, ensure your content provides real value and is relevant to user search queries.
