MiWay Insurance is a pioneering South African-based direct insurance company that revolutionised the industry by offering customers the convenience of purchasing and administering short-term insurance policies online. Established in 2008 through a collaborative effort between Santam, Sanlam, and PSG, MiWay Insurance has quickly become a leading provider of affordable home, business, and car insurance.
Despite being at the forefront of digital insurance solutions, MiWay faced a crucial hurdle in expanding its online presence beyond its website. Key search terms like “budget insurance” and “user-based insurance” were ranking between the 5th and last page of Google search results. To capitalise on the potential customer base and enhance brand visibility, MiWay recognized the need to optimise its website for search engine optimization (SEO) best practices.
Overcoming the Challenge:
MiWay Insurance partnered with NP Digital to implement a comprehensive SEO strategy and overhaul its online presence. Through a thorough analysis of MiWay’s website, NP Digital identified areas for improvement and developed a tailored plan to boost organic rankings and drive increased traffic.
The first step in the optimization process involved refining MiWay’s website structure and content. NP Digital conducted keyword research to identify the high-volume, relevant search terms related to MiWay’s insurance offerings. By strategically integrating these keywords into the website’s meta tags, headings, and content, NP Digital was able to improve MiWay’s visibility in search engine results.
To establish MiWay as an authoritative resource in the insurance industry, NP Digital developed a content marketing strategy. High-quality blog posts, articles, and informative guides were created to address common insurance-related queries and concerns. By consistently publishing valuable content, NP Digital positioned MiWay as a trusted source of information for potential customers, while also improving its search engine rankings through increased website traffic and backlink acquisition.
Another key aspect of the SEO strategy was link building. NP Digital identified relevant industry publications, online directories, and authoritative websites to secure backlinks to MiWay’s website. These backlinks not only drove direct traffic but also improved MiWay’s domain authority, signalling to search engines that the website is a trusted source of information. This approach resulted in higher organic rankings and increased visibility in search results.
In addition to content and link building, NP Digital addressed technical aspects of MiWay’s website that could impact its SEO performance. The website’s load speed was optimised, ensuring a seamless user experience. Mobile responsiveness was enhanced to cater to the growing number of users accessing the internet through mobile devices. Moreover, NP Digital implemented structured data markup to help search engines understand and display MiWay’s content more effectively in search results.
The partnership with NP Digital yielded remarkable results for MiWay Insurance. Key search terms like “budget insurance” and “user-based insurance” achieved first-page rankings, significantly improving MiWay’s visibility to potential customers. The website’s optimisation for SEO best practices propelled MiWay to dominate keyword rankings, with a visibility score of 23.82% among its competitors.
Furthermore, the increased brand visibility translated into tangible growth. In 2019, MiWay witnessed 689,844 overall users visiting their website. By 2022, this number skyrocketed to an impressive 1,507,091 users, representing a remarkable 209.65% increase. The enhanced online presence and improved organic rankings attracted a larger customer base, ultimately driving business growth for MiWay Insurance.
