The Challenge

In late 2023, Bionic presented Bring Digital with a new challenge. After another strong year working with us — one that saw record impressions and clicks generated through search engines — performance was beginning to tail off. Bionic wanted to get ahead of a potential drop in visibility with a fresh wave of authoritative organic backlinks to their site.

Our Digital PR identified that the best way to generate relevant links was to leverage Bionic’s position as one of the UK’s leading experts in energy bills. Despite a largely B2B target market, Bionic saw a lot of success with content that addressed common consumer concerns about energy bills and payments. 

This strategy would allow them to target sites with high credibility, large readerships, and high domain ratings, helping build on Bionic’s domain rating, organic visibility in SERPs and brand awareness.

Our approach

The team spotted a story that broke on the BBC about a man being charged £244,000 for his energy bill. As one of Bionic’s specialist niches is energy bill support, they knew immediately that this would be a great newsjacking opportunity. 

As well as using expert commentary, already on file from previous reactive work, the team also drafted an up-to-date comment on the steps you should take if you feel like you’ve been given an inaccurate energy bill. to support the wider “news jack” piece and ensure relevance. The comment was attributed to an expert spokesperson to add authority to the claims.

After this, the team created a targeted media list consisting of personal finance and energy consumer journalists and distributed the expert commentary to each of these contacts just hours after the story broke. 

Like with any quick-fire reactive work, the main challenge was having to potentially compete with other businesses who may be writing up similar comments. However, thanks to the team’s rapid work, they managed to cut through the noise and land results.”

This reactive work landed us a total of 92 links spanning both national and regional publications. Coverage hits include The Express, Daily Record and Birmingham Mail. The team also exceeded the client’s monthly link target by a whopping 434%

This was the highest number of links gained for Bionic in a single month throughout their retainer.

“Having worked with the Bring Digital team for several years now, we’re constantly blown away by their initiative and ability to get results. Their digital PR work has established us as a thought leader in our market and has solidified Bionic as a brand that goes above and beyond to educate its customers. This campaign is just one of many examples where they’ve captured the attention of the media — and our site has seen a massive boost as a result.”
