Flora, a renowned culinary brand, was developed in the 1960s as a response to the medical community’s demand for a healthier alternative to butter. The company aimed to improve heart health and enable individuals to lead fulfilling lives. Initially available in pharmacies, it took two years for Flora to enter grocery stores, marking the beginning of its journey towards becoming a household name.
Flora faced technical on-page SEO challenges, including issues with meta descriptions, title tags, and alt text tags. Furthermore, the company lacked a cohesive digital content strategy and calendar to emphasize its brand and increase organic brand visibility. To compound the challenges, the COVID-19 pandemic prompted Flora to undergo a significant brand transformation, focusing on healthier living and the role of Flora products in promoting heart health. Flora turned to NP Digital for assistance in addressing these issues and navigating the brand shift during and post-pandemic.
NP Digital implemented a comprehensive SEO program to address Flora’s technical on-page SEO issues. This involved optimizing meta descriptions, title tags, and alt text tags to improve search engine visibility and enhance the overall user experience.
