Where did we start?

Aurora Training, a premier training institute in South East Queensland, came to us with the intent of improving their online presence and attracting students from diverse backgrounds. Their focus was on reaching three key target markets: high school students in year 11 and 12, mature-aged career changers, and academic and career advisors at schools. Their goal was to highlight their Certificate Three courses, with a particular focus on Certificate Three in Individual Support.

This campaign commenced in December 2022 with the objective of enhancing overall website traffic, organic visibility, and engagement. To achieve this, a combination of paid advertising and organic SEO strategies was employed.

What was our strategy?

To cater to Aurora Training’s diverse audience and course offerings, we crafted a multifaceted strategy that utilised both paid advertising and organic SEO to maximise visibility and reach. This comprehensive approach aimed to cater to the unique needs of each target market.

After discussing the clients key target markets, in-depth research was completed in regards to search intent and tone. Then, this research was folded into the content and larger overarching strategies in order to engage these groups effectively.

The heart of Aurora Training’s offerings lies in their Certificate Three courses. We honed in on Certificate Three in Individual Support, strategically highlighting its benefits and appeal to potential students in all aspects of the campaign.

To underline this, the strategy began with rewriting specific course pages to reflect the interests of these key target demographics. Once the content was revised, the pages were optimised and utilised in the organic SEO strategy.

At the same time, the paid ads campaign was in effect, targeting these same demographics. Over time, and as a result of research into keywords and user intent, the copy on the search ads was tweaked to encourage higher click through from prospective leads that later lead to conversions.
