A humorous, easy-to-read blog for a light-hearted men’s apparel brand with a niche target audience; really tall men. #Tallhacks extends longtiestore.com beyond apparel, covering lifestyle tips and daily doses of humor for all tall men (and women — because they buy ties too).
Blogs like this provide clients with a wealth of valuable web assets that can come in handy in the future. They can be repurposed, reposted, or used to build ideas from. It’s also valuable to viewers — a friendly, helpful resource driven by our original intent: reach the people looking for products (extra long ties) that caters to their need (because short ties are awful).
The blog’s job is to subtly increase longtiestore.com’s brand exposure and create positive association through relevant, helpful how-to’s and fun reads.
The blog’s end goal is to increase authority and rankings in terms of SEO, garner social attention, gain a solid readership that yields returning users that click through to the store, and ultimately increase purchase conversions.
