Seats2meet is one of the Netherland’s largest coworking and meeting space providers (180 locations worldwide) and a creator of an innovative matching software - S2M Passport (200.000 passport users).
S2M Passport uses AI algorithm to match its users to each other, and match users to articles, news, and events based on their tags and historical data.
The main content platform of S2M is S2M Online Magazine. Guest writers can submit their own articles that fit the guidelines and the articles are matched to S2M users.
How does it Work?
Visitors of the event or workspace create a profile where they list their skills and answer several questions related to their occupation. Then they can also ask a question related to the struggle they currently face at work. Based on this input, the algorithm matches the user with a relevant person at the location who is likely to benefit the user of the platform. This results in new projects, and job opportunities and creates additional value for coming to the location.
Before the start of our collaboration, Seats2meet.com was already a well-known and successful business in the Netherlands. The company aimed to expand its success further by scaling its platform usage internationally. Therefore, the EDGEncy team was hired to help create a strategy for that and subsequently implement it.
Tools that we used:
Seats2meet Online Magazine
Social Media Channels
Before the start of the collaboration, we analyzed historical data of the Seats2meet ecosystem. SEO plays a big role in S2M strategy. The company uses its blog to talk to its readers on topics related to entrepreneurship, tech, and the future of work. There the website visitors come to learn more about these topics of interest and subsequently about the company. A large proportion of traffic would come from organic. However, the magazine lacked coherent structure, making it difficult to navigate and damaging the user experience. Further, it didn't have a consistent tone of voice, hence damaging brand recognition.
Therefore, to expand their reach, we, first of all, decided to optimize and develop this channel. We began by performing a complete audit of the website to identify the best-performing terms and pages. As a result of our research, we discovered content strategy gaps. Based on that, we created a semantic core. After that, we set up a common structure and a list of blog post topics that we expected would help us increase the readership.
After setting up the structure, the next step was to implement the established content strategy. S2M has a large pool of enthusiastic writers who regularly voluntarily share their expertise and insights on the platform. Our task was to provide structure to their enthusiasm to ensure their content would become visible to the maximum number of people. Therefore, we created guidelines with the list of best practices and content specifications.
Furthermore, we divided the magazine into categories, which would make navigation easier. The categories we selected were the most popular topics we identified, which included Future of Work, Sustainability, Sharing Economy, Entrepreneurship, and Technology. Then we continued our work on re-engaging the writers to share the required content. After receiving the content from the team, we would optimize it according to the best SEO practices. Subsequently, we would further distribute the content across social media to increase its reach.
