The Client

Back in 1960, Carl-Wilhelm edding and Volker Detlef Ledermann brought the very first legendary all-purpose marker no. 1 to life. This single product grew into a source of inspiration for both current and future generations of markers, marking the beginning of an incredible journey. What started as a humble two-person business, driven by passion and dedication, has now transformed into a global powerhouse with over 600 talented employees and an impressive annual revenue of more than 141 million euros (2018). This unparalleled growth is intertwined with the company’s products, which can now be found in over 110 countries worldwide. This journey to success is built upon the solid pillars of two prominent brands: edding and Legamaster.


edding, a leading manufacturer of writing and marking products, aimed for greater online visibility on Bol.com. The goal was clear: their range of products needed to be more easily discoverable for their target audience on Bol.com. This would not only boost sales but also provide deeper insights into customers and market position.

The first challenge for edding was gaining insight into the keywords customers used to find their products. This was crucial for enhancing their online presence. Additionally, edding wanted to understand why certain products outperformed others on Bol.com.

For this quest, edding required a specific tool to gather keyword insights. They also wanted to comprehend nuances between markets such as the Netherlands and Belgium, and measure the impact of changes in product details and customer reviews on their visibility.

The path to improved online discoverability was challenging, but edding took the step forward. In this case study, we delve into how edding tackled these challenges and which solutions contributed to their online success. With determination, they increased their visibility and strengthened their market position.

"Previously, we lacked comprehensive insights into the keywords. We were curious about the differences in keywords between the Netherlands and Belgium. We desired more insights into the products within our sponsored products campaign. Furthermore, we sought insights into the search volume of our competitors. We were intrigued by where consumers find our products. What synonyms do they use?"

Tailoring product listings for local markets

A significant insight edding gained through this tool was the understanding of the difference in search behavior across various markets, such as the Netherlands and Belgium. By analyzing keywords that are specifically relevant to each of these markets, edding was able to tailor their approach locally.
