A brand migration that you can take to the bank
Our strategy comprised of an end-to-end migration from Joomla to WordPress utilising a multisite set-up allowing single shared CMS, code-base, theme and plugin stack. Both websites would have only minor cosmetic differences, equally adopting the new brand.
Our new UX-led design transformed the site’s navigation and brought new product filters, calculators and features to guide customers to the right mortgage and savings products faster.
We pitched bold KPIs to win the project including increasing average time on page by 30% and maintaining/recovering all organic traffic levels
after launch – a top Board concern.
Taking the brand from print to digital enabled StrategiQ’s development team to introduce subtle animations to the design’s components. Collaborating with our design team to animate their new ‘tile’ icons.
By launching the new website onto the new (and used) domain names, our strategy was to hide the new site from Google, allowing an initial ‘soft launch’ to a member group who could critique ahead of the full launch.
During the 2 week soft launch, the working group, members of the public, and a contingent of deliberate paid search users provided valuable insights.
Post soft-launch, feedback highlighted that existing customers wanted to speak to somebody, whilst new customers were not scrolling.
