Our Process

Problem

An outdated website required a comprehensive redesign as Andy Thomas Careers Now expanded nationally. The need to educate potential clients, automate backend processes, and accommodate a growing team prompted the initiative for change. The challenge was to create a website that looked modern and aligned with Andy Thomas’ goals of user education, team growth, and backend automation while improving CRO and SEO.

Objective

The primary objective was to provide a fresh look and enhance the user experience while addressing backend inefficiencies. The goals included integrating systems for seamless growth, optimizing the website for search engines, and infusing personality to make the site more approachable. Additionally, the website needed to automate team updates as Andy’s career coaching firm continued to expand.

Strategy

The comprehensive strategy for redesigning Andy Thomas Careers Now’s website involved a multi-faceted approach. First and foremost, we initiated a seamless integration of systems, connecting email notifications, CRM, and marketing automation, enhancing operational efficiency for the growing team. The website’s automation system was designed to effortlessly accommodate new team members, ensuring the site remains up-to-date as the career guidance firm expands. A Mobile-First Initiative and a full design update were implemented for a responsive and visually appealing platform. Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) strategies were applied to create a website that effectively communicates its value, reducing the need for extensive explanations from the sales team. Strategic design choices, such as introducing spaces for improved readability, infusing personality through micro-level changes, and incorporating vibrant colors into Call-to-Actions (CTAs), collectively contribute to a more engaging and user-friendly experience. The visual redesign also adheres to SEO standards, ensuring the website looks modern and is optimized for search engines. This holistic strategy positions Andy Thomas’ team for continued success in guiding professionals toward fulfilling careers while maintaining a contemporary and efficient online presence.

 

Results

The new Andy Thomas Careers Now website saw an 80% increase in conversion rates and a steep jump in organic rankings within the first few weeks after launch. Our team A|B tested both websites using an advertising campaign that had delivered consistent results for years. More people were converting to the new website and were more enthusiastic about working with a career coach. With the efficiency of moving information seamlessly from the website to the company CRM, the bandwidth of the sales and operations team was increased, and our team was able to get better data—which, of course, was used to optimize advertising campaigns!
