Boosting Online Visibility and Footfall for a Vaughan-Based Artisanal Bakery

An SEO and Content Marketing Case Study

Case Study - Artisanal Bakery


Our collaboration with a distinguished artisanal bakery nestled in Vaughan, Canada began just over a year ago. Celebrated for their exquisite croissants and health-beneficial sourdough, often dubbed as the “wonder bread,” they sought to amplify their online visibility and customer engagement. Prior to our partnership, their primary traffic sources were Instagram, TikTok, and word-of-mouth referrals.


Recognizing the power of SEO and content marketing but constrained by time, they engaged Numero Uno Web Solutions. Their goal was to educate their patrons about their sourdough and other baked goods, including pastries and pies, as well as specialty coffee. With a preference for walk-in customers and biweekly rotating menus featuring seasonal flavours, they aimed to create a buzz that would draw customers to their bakery.

Goals and Objectives

The bakery aimed to bolster their Google Business Profile (GBP) listing and website exposure through SEO and content marketing. They sought to enlighten people about their offerings and inspire more walk-in customers.
