            Search Engine Optimization:

 

SEO is an integral component of every digital marketing strategy. It helps improve your search engine rankings on the search engine results pages (SERP’s). For a brand to rank organically high, it is important to perform a good SEO strategy. A good SEO strategy involves satisfying important attributes like the header tags, meta tags, backlinks, keywords and social media integration.

 On performing an SEO analysis for Swiggy, two major issues were discovered.

The website of the brand didn’t have H2 tags at all. H2 tags are an important way of communicating to the search engines what the pages of your website are about.

Also, the number of backlinks for the brand’s website was not adequate. Having a good amount of quality backlinks defines domain’s credibility and improves ranking.

Thus, the brand’s website should inculcate H2 tags and quality backlinks to its website for a great overall SEO performance.

 

                     

         Social Media Campaigns and Content Strategy:  In just 4 years, Swiggy has become a very reputed brand. And that’s not just because of their exceptional service but also because of their excellent social media marketing strategies. Delivery services and social media strategies have gone hand in hand for company’s reputation.

Email Marketing:

 

         Social Media and Google Ads:

Every Digital Marketing strategy is incomplete without Paid Ads. Every brand practising digital marketing should invest in both Social Media Marketing Ads & Google Ads.

 

 

 Conclusion:

Over these years, Swiggy has grown as a brand. It has given a tough competition to other counterparts due to its online presence. Swiggy has been way active on YouTube and the digital marketing team has utilized the platform brilliantly by showcasing the 7-second video to its viewers
