Case Study: CatSpring Yaupon

Supporting America's Only Organic Native Tea

Full-service Digital Marketing Support

The client:


B2C Texas-based brand of yaupon tea.

The Challenge:

Lacking digital presence and launch of a new marquee product. A company with many marketable verticals and no marketing department.

The Approach:

CSY has a strong brand identity based on product quality, ethics and sustainability, which was not leveraged digitally. Because this is a B2C company, social media storytelling and regular email marketing campaigns helped the brand reach a wider audience building a loyal customer base motivated by the brand’s overarching message rather than the product alone. The launch of a new product was supported by influencer marketing, paid advertising and PR directed at relevant publications.

When we started working with CatSpring Yaupon, their SEO rankings had been dropping continuously for an extended period of time. High competition and the competitive landscape made it difficult for them to rank. The days of post-it-and-you’ll-rank were over. The Colibrily Crew stepped in to build a targeted SEO strategy starting with a competitive analysis.

Shopify SEO in itself is a different ballgame, we chose to focus on optimizing the site itself for specific user long-tail keywords. The results speak for themselves. After several months, CatSpring went from outside the top 10 to the top 3 for the main revenue-generating keyword. But we didn’t stop there, we created and implemented a link-building strategy that lead to CatSpring Yaupon having the highest domain authority (DA) amongst its competitors. When the prime holiday shopping season finished, CatSpring saw its sales skyrocket from the previous year.
