Mobimeme has worked extensively with LafargeHolcim Tanzania over the past year, in partnership with Sorted Advertising. This cement manufacturer is based in Mbeya, Tanzania and opted for Mobimeme’s Tier 3 content marketing package. This entailed 20 unique articles written for their website every month (240 articles per year), as well as all accompanying designs and images.
Some of the articles were translated into Swahili to reach the local audience in their home language. All articles were optimised for search engines and contained hyperlinks to other pages on the site. These articles were then shared on LafargeHolcim Tanzania’s Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter channels. A YouTube channel was also created and various types of videos were created for the cement manufacturer by Mobimeme.
LafargeHolcim Tanzania also opted to add an additional advertising spend to boost these articles to a wider, targeted audience on Google and their social media platforms. In just over 12 months of extensive campaigns, here are some highlights of how the online audience for LafargeHolcim has grown.
- Website visitors – At the start of our partnership, LafargeHolcim Tanzania had just 48 website visitors. One year later, the website was visited by 56 424 users – that is a 117 450% increase in traffic to their site in just 12 months. Most of these visitors (42 904) live in Dar es Salaam – the financial hub of Tanzania.
- Page views – Page views increased by 23 096% since the start of the comprehensive SEO content marketing campaign. In one year, the LafargeHolcim website had 234 745 page visits, compared to 1012 page visits the year before our partnership began. 22 449 people found the website through LafargeHolcim Tanzania’s various social media channels.
