Mental Health Foundation’s mission is to help people to thrive through understanding, protecting, and improving their mental health.
The charity runs campaigns to drive awareness of all aspects of mental health. They depend on public support and donations to do their work.
With a well-structured website, Mental Health Foundation was already performing well online. Yet they knew that expert help could increase the visits they get from search engines like Google.
Platypus has run several successful digital marketing projects with Mental Health Foundation. So the team trusted us to help deliver SEO improvements to their website.
Mental Health Foundation wanted to deliver their services online. They also wanted to improve website engagement and drive donations. The existing website gave us a great foundation to help achieve that – and we knew we could improve it.
The better-optimised the site, the more qualified traffic would find the charity through search. Optimising the pages would mean more conversions.
That means more volunteers, more donations, and more people with mental health issues getting the support they need.
We did a comprehensive SEO audit of the website. We created a list of SEO recommendations to improve search rankings including:
And we found plenty to do!
We grouped recommendations by priority and who would deliver them – us or them. These included:
We made all our recommendations in a short, easy-to-read document. Everything was explained simply and clearly, with minimal jargon.
We then met the Mental Health Foundation’s digital team to answer their questions. We made sure everyone understood why they should make certain changes, as well as how.
Our review was thorough. It covered short and long-term changes that the charity could make to boost their search rankings. When they implemented our changes, it led to a 116% increase in organic search traffic.
The charity is still creating new content around our step-by-step recommendations. So the authority and traffic of their website is set to keep increasing.
Stuart Hill, Digital Manager at the Mental Health Foundation, said:
“All the information Platypus gave was clear and concise. That was empowering for us – it gave us the knowledge and confidence to make the changes. It also informed our strategy going forward instead of being a one-time review.
The Platypus team are very friendly and approachable and always happy to answer any questions or offer advice. We were delighted with the outcome.”
