The pre-owned luxury market is one of the fastest growing sectors, worth over £13 billion in the UK alone.  With such a competitive space (particularly from the US market); the challenge for HEWI London was to stand out and increase not only revenue, but memberships (for their email database), sellers and stock.

It’s believed that 65% of women have designer items to sell, so we needed to ensure that HEWI London were visible for both buying and selling terminology, through Paid and Organic Search.


Working closely with the HEWI London team we devised a strategy that allowed HEWI London to gain rankings for long tail terms with high conversion, whilst still tackling the broad terms such as ‘Pre-owned Designer Clothing’ and the designer brands themselves.

Our strategy started with a thorough SEO Technical Audit and full optimisation of the site. We then went on to restructure HEWI London’s Adwords account to make it linear enough to alter spend and bids based on stock levels and designer brands.  This has helped increase the Paid Search conversion by over 30% in less than four months.

We’ve also suggested HEWI London through their rebrand, in ensuring that mentions of their old brand were changed to the new one: resulting in updated links in publications such as The Metro and The Express.
