Be a Leader
When Steve Frailey first discovered noni fruit growing wild on his farm, he had a lot of work ahead of him. Before Noni Fruit Leather was born, there was only noni juice. However, the beneficial properties of noni was being destroyed in the juice during the production process. Not afraid of a little dirt and sweat, Steve Frailey began the long and careful process of gathering research, conducting tests from third party laboratories, and through trial and error, you have the successful line of products and business model you see today. RealNoni.com was not afraid to take the lead in creating a superior product by going against the grain of “this is how we’ve always done things”.
When SEO-ing for RealNoni.com, the term lowering blood sugar is very broad with high competition. It would be difficult to rank high for that term. Attempting to rank for such a broad term could induce a high bounce rate (individuals clicking to a website and quickly leaving). High bounce rates can damage the overall google ranking for a website.
However, the term "noni for blood sugar" is a niche term. This is a smaller pool of individuals who know what they are searching for and they're more likely to remain on RealNoni.com for a longer period of time. The longer an individual remains on a website, the higher the probability the individual will fill out a lead box and ultimately purchase. Being nichey has induced a consistent increase of leads (50-120+) month over month while simultaneously decreasing the bounce rate (2-5%).
RealNonil.com gives individuals options when unsubscribing from emails. For example, upon unsubscribing, an individual has the option to only receive coupon offers/newsletters/or both. This strategy has lowered total unsubscribes and spam complaints.

When customers purchase from RealNoni.com, they are aware that they are paying for not only a product that benefits their health, but assisting in the funding of an albatross preserve, monk seal conservation, and organic sustainable farming practices. Steve Frailey goes to the extent of hosting free noni farm tours on his property and consistently posts pictures and videos of all the current events and happenings on the farm. This has really opened the eyes of many consumers and they in turn “fell in love” with RealNoni.com.
Harnessing the ever moving power of social media; coupons, promotions, and contests have received the attention of almost 20,000 Facebook followers. RealNoni.com not only promotes articles that highlight the benefits of their products, but they also promote third-party articles educating the public on the newest and upcoming sustainable farming practices, wildlife conservation, and healthy living. Being involved in the community is one of the best ways to stay connected and create lifelong relationships.
One of the biggest reasons that things are working so well for RealNoni.com is the fact that they have been using coupons to encourage anyone interested in their products to provide their email address. Every time they send out an email with a coupon, they see over $6K in sales using the given offer. RealNoni.com is currently implementing this strategy into a social media campaign and has already topped last month’s offer sales. Consistency is key to their marketing approach and collection of email addresses that is paying off and has earned them this new milestone.
