The Background

How Elmhurst 1925 Increased New Users 37% with SEO & Groove Commerce

Elmhurst 1925, based in Elma, New York, is a leading plant-based beverage company specializing in non-dairy milks made from nuts, grains, and seeds. Their commitment to delicious and nutritious products, free from artificial additives, has resonated with health-conscious consumers. With distribution in over 10,000 stores nationwide, Elmhurst 1925 can be found in local grocery stores near you such as Sprouts and Wholefoods.

The Challenge

Elmhurst 1925 encountered a series of significant challenges when it came to optimizing their online presence through search engine optimization (SEO). Each of these challenges required careful consideration and strategic solutions.

Intense Industry Competition

Elmhurst 1925 operates in a highly competitive market saturated with creamer, milk, and non-traditional dairy brands. Competing for visibility, consumer attention, and market share required an effective SEO strategy that would set them apart from their competitors. Standing out amidst the crowded landscape demanded careful keyword targeting, content differentiation, and innovative approaches to attract and retain customers.

Stretched Internal Bandwidth

Elmhurst 1925 acknowledged their limited internal resources and expertise in managing SEO efforts effectively. While recognizing the importance of SEO in maintaining a competitive edge, they understood the need for external support from experts who could provide the necessary knowledge, skills, and bandwidth required to navigate the dynamic world of SEO successfully. Seeking a reliable partner was vital to ensure their SEO initiatives were not neglected or poorly executed.

Underperforming Blog Content

Despite having a wealth of pre-written blog content, Elmhurst 1925 struggled with low rankings and visibility in search engine results. The existing content did not effectively engage the target audience or rank well for relevant keywords. To improve their SEO performance, it was essential to revitalize and optimize their blog content, aligning it with current industry trends, customer needs, and search engine algorithms.

Style Changes and Legal Considerations

Elmhurst 1925 underwent style changes, including updates to their branding and product images. Although these changes were intended to strengthen their brand identity and appeal to consumers, they also required careful adaptation within their SEO strategy. Alt text for the new product images needed to be optimized to enhance accessibility and improve search engine crawlability. 

Moreover, operating in the consumable foods industry involved navigating legal red tape, including compliance with labeling regulations, allergen disclosures, and other relevant guidelines. Adhering to these requirements while maintaining SEO optimization posed an additional challenge that needed to be addressed strategically.

Passover Closures and Product Availability

As a Kosher facility, Elmhurst 1925 adhered to religious observances during Passover, resulting in temporary closures. These closures meant that certain products were unavailable during specific periods, impacting the company's SEO rankings. When products were out of stock or temporarily unavailable, it posed a setback in terms of maintaining consistent visibility and search engine rankings.
