Bespoke Cake Shop Finds Digital Sweet Spot!
Food & Drink, Hospitality, eCommerce
Unbirthday Bakery’s humble beginnings as a simple blog displaying images of their unique cake creations as hobby, was forever changed when people started contacting them to buy their creations. The site was converted to an ecommerce site and was a big ‘up and comer’ in the Sydney bespoke cake scene.
Soon turning over 500,000 cakes in a year, Unbirthday Bakery was quickly growing, but was wholly reliant on Social Media and events for their sales, as they were invisible on the web otherwise. Approaching Arrow Digital to help bring them to the next stage of their growth, the client wanted to decrease their reliance on Social Media and further grow the business on the wave of momentum they were riding. They also wanted people who knew about them to be able to easily find them online.
