A Canadian-based footwear retailer since 1969, Baggins Shoes came to Metamend with the goal of expanding the success of their brick and mortar store to online retail.

In 2014, we began work with Baggins to build a profitable e-commerce website from the ground up.

“Metamend has been instrumental in improving and maintaining Baggins SEO standings and helping to ensure we spend our budget in ways that benefits us as a small business. When we came to Metamend, we struggled with our website, digital marketing and SEO and Metamend has been very important for our growth since 2014.”

The Process

To improve Baggins’ e-commerce site and raise their online brand profile, a five pillar strategy was developed.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

To drive additional traffic to the Baggins website, we evaluated both front and back facing site elements to improve site rank in web-based searches.

Shopping Feeds

By integrating Baggins’ apparel inventory into online shopping feeds, web users searching for particular items could now easily come into contact with products from the Baggins website.

Conversion Optimization

To increase conversions, we conducted usability testing to improve website interactions, highlight products and simplify the checkout process.

Social Media

As part of our strategy to raise brand engagement, we bolstered Baggins social media presence to grow followers and boost SEO.

Content Creation

Using blogs, newsletters and custom social media posts, we worked with Baggins to design original content to increase site traffic and build a loyal following.
