Top Bundaberg Websites for 2021

I thought it would make for an interesting exercise to track what websites produced in Bundaberg are ‘popular’. This list is definitely not exhaustive, and please do use the recognised measuring tool yourself and report in the comments.

10: Luxury Resort Bliss

My wife April Wright (who has another listing in the top 15) and I created Luxury Resort Bliss back in 2007 as a means for people to research and book resort vacations back when there were few other options. The site wasn’t an immediate success but over the next few years that hard work we did on researching what people wanted to know about, writing content and building pages took off and this was to become our full-time work and income for years to come allowing us to have a family, travel and eventually settle in the Bundaberg area

4: Bundaberg Rum

Website: bundabergrum.com.au/ Ranking: 1,392,800 in global internet engagement 1:58

Bundaberg Rum is an iconic Australian brand. A few years back, as the brand was approaching its 130th birthday, the company moved towards promoting Australian values, the story behind the brand, and its history. The move showed the trend towards reflects the move towards local values in general. The ad looked at life at the distillery and the small group of about 30 people and locally sourced ingredients. This campaign highlighted lots of what is working with advertising.

What it could have done better is focus a little more on making the customer the hero rather than the brand.

3: Bundaberg Brewed Drinks

If you haven’t bought on yet, family and local tradition is a common trait among many local brands. This brand exports all over the world, and it is interesting to use their tool to see where in fact you can find their products. More and more, I am seeing the familiar brand from my childhood pop up in media around the globe and a deal with PepsiCo helping it reach 400,000 shops and restaurants across the United States.

Because Bundaberg Brewed Drinks is a fourth-generation, family-owned business that competes with multinationals, the brand distinguishes itself as authentic and homegrown as a means to get more mileage out of its advertising spend. Because of their research, they found out 9 out of 10 Aussies knew who they were, but they don’t understand their point of difference.

2. Piano Lessons Info

April Wright started Piano Lessons Info more than 10 years ago. The success of the site is achieved through April’s hard work creating quality media and enjoying free lessons to follow.

While it is easy to think in 2021 that it’s impossible to compete with big brands and big accounts, what the success of this site shows is that with a little strategy, keyword research, and creating quality media content it is possible to achieve success. While piano lessons info began in 2007 most a lot of its engagement success has come in the last year or two as social media channels, new content, and gamification tactics were employed as part of an integrated strategy.

Some free content comes in the form of interactive games like these. We know that games like this one I made help people engage with learning.

Quality content and research has not only helped April rise to the top of the rankings in her area of the internet but built a tribe of followers who trust her brand. April is only recently starting putting effort into her social media, but her channels are growing really fast, and she receives a lot of complimentary emails thanking her for her content:

Having a lively social media engagement means April is able to stay agile and up to date with what her audience is looking for and adjust content to the strategic goals of the business and subscribers. ‘Free’ digital products that encourage people to sign up to her email list, allow April to develop a report with her audience who help her shape the future of the business. Having an automated email sequence means April is able to further warm up this audience to some of her premium products like her online piano course and club.

As an editor and multimedia content producer, for this site, I’ve had a good vantage point to watch this business achieve success.

To find out more on how April and I can help you achieve success online, schedule a call.

Conclusion

To even get a ranking requires you to know your way around and put a bit of effort into building traffic and engagement. Apparently, as of June 18, 2021, there are currently over 1.86 billion websites online. Any business that even receives a number is a tremendous effort (websites inside 20 million get a score).

Numbers are not always indicative of quality, and it’s easy to forget how important real connections are. Popularity is for popularity’s sake is rather trite, but real engagement and connection with purposeful brands that make a difference can change lives.

As a business partner (along with April, my wife) and someone who has worked on two of these sites, it’s encouraging that the DIY ethic can pay off even today.

That’s why as well as working on my own projects I’m looking forward to assisting other brands to discover their personality, purpose and getting engagement. By creating content that is relevant and offers value for your audience, you can begin to start a conversation that can help transform your brand and get more sales and leads.

DIY success is possible, but it helps to have a guide with a proven road map of the territory.

How did I find/measure the top sites rankings?

There is one metric which is well recognised as a bit of a universal marker for ‘website popularity’ and that is called an Alexa rank. This indicator was designed as a benchmarking tool to compare websites for audience engagement to measure ‘audience engagement’ and rank millions of websites, with an Alexa Rank of 1 being the most popular. Because of things the number of unique visitors and page views Google has an Alexa rank of 1, YouTube has a rank of 2, T-mall (Chinese Retail) 3, Facebook 7, Amazon 11, Yahoo 12, Wikipedia.org 13 or Telstra in Australia is ranked 7,248.
