Decathlon is a French sporting goods retailer. With over 1697 stores in 60 countries and regions, it is the largest sporting goods retailer in the world. The promotion challenge was that Decathlon is a newcomer in the highly competitive market of Ukraine, where most of the market share in the niche is taken by large all-in-one marketplaces including Prom.ua, OLX, and Rozetka.
Decathlon's direct competitors are market leaders such as megasport.ua, terrasport.ua, extremstyle.ua, and sportmaster.ua. Over years of SEO promotion, they have managed to occupy their market shares.
Our goal was to identify growth points and increase the visibility of Decathlon.ua among the closest competitors for the first year of cooperation.

Alexey Pavlov, SEO Specialist, Decathlon:
We managed to build effective communication, test several hypotheses, and make a work plan for each month. All this made it possible to achieve and even exceed the plans for organic traffic growth without a conversion rate drop. On the whole, we are happy with the results we have achieved.
Daria Kovtun, Project Manager at Netpeak:
It was important for the Decathlon and Netpeak teams to work together openly and regularly to find alternative solutions and achieve their goals. The joint prioritization of tasks made it possible to respond to critical errors on time without shifting the focus from the implementation of the monthly plan. SEO can hardly be called a dynamic tool (based on processes). It's rather the speed of technical implementation that is welcome here. The Netpeak team helped set priorities, and colleagues from Decathlon contributed to the implementation of priority tasks.
