We launched a Women in Work campaign to coincide with International Women’s Day, to drive brand awareness and SEO benefits to Randstad.co.uk.
Randstad have always had bags of authority in the recruitment sector. Globally, they’re one of the biggest and most respected brands. But in the UK their authority and sector knowledge, consistently demonstrated through PR, wasn’t translating into domain authority, aka performance in the SERPs.
For us, the reason was simple enough: by running its PR and digital marketing activities in silos, rather than aligned, Randstad was limiting its ability to rank high. Its PR and digital marketing activities simply weren’t joined up.
We launched a Women in Work campaign to coincide with International Women’s Day, to drive brand awareness and SEO benefits to Randstad.co.uk. Our PR, content and SEO experts worked together to create a survey on men and women’s contrasting attitudes to asking for a payrise.
We polled 2000 people from multiple sectors and geographies to generate maximum media impact over a 4-month period through a strategic schedule of press releases and op-eds across Tier 1 media. Crucially, we created multiple landing pages on Randstad.co.uk including blogs, sector-specific reports and infographics to attract backlinks from major media outlets — and boost domain authority.
"Found delivered a fantastic campaign that resonated with our audience and worked to bring search and PR together for Randstad. We were really pleased with the content Found produced and the coverage that it got us."
