Our Process

Problem

FATI suffered from a lack of online visibility, diminishing its capacity to attract prospective students. The initial emphasis on lead generation highlighted the need for a comprehensive website redesign to refine the training platform and enhance the overall user experience. The website needed to communicate with Go High Level – the client’s CRM system – to send and receive information about applicants and their progress.

Objective

Our primary goal was to create a redesigned website aligned with a strategic plan to attract eligible enrollments through Google Ads and organic search. This involved optimizing the website for conversions by implementing on-site and cross-domain tracking, heat mapping, and touchpoint tracking, all geared towards enhancing the overall user experience and capturing inbound leads effectively. All data captured would then need to be accurately reflected in Go High Levels system and notify each dedicated admissions professional based on the user’s unique application.

Strategy

Collaborating closely with FATI, we developed an inbound lead generation strategy. We identified the website redesign as crucial for improving conversion rates and, alternatively, a path to a more optimized website, bolstering organic traffic. The redesigned website reflects FATI’s commitment to excellence in financial education and is designed to be modern, aesthetically pleasing, and intuitive.

 

Transformation and Trustworthiness

Recognizing the importance of trust in the education and financial space, we strategically adjusted the color palette, adopted a distributed content strategy, and elevated the web design to expand FATI’s brand trustworthiness. These measures significantly contributed to enhancing the overall image of the institute.

Color Palette

The website’s color palette experienced strategic adjustments to convey trustworthiness and professionalism. The predominant use of blue aimed to instill trust, while strategically placed orange highlights engaged users for enhanced interaction. This thoughtful color scheme contributed to a visually appealing design. The use of orange as a primary CTA was fueled by significant data supporting its effectiveness as a CTA color. Alongside this change- the website was designed to limit the use of orange, reserving it only for primary CTAs and placing the color as the primary focus for every screen it appears on.

The redesigned structure, vibrant color palette, and intuitive navigation contribute to a modern and user-friendly design, pushing users further into the site and ultimately converting. Incorporating on-site and cross-domain tracking and heat mapping allowed our team to refine the website month after month to reflect user intent and improve the user experience.

Complex tracking mechanisms were implemented to monitor user interactions effectively. Our Team then takes this data and improves the customer journey to capture more applicants.
