Project StoryBrand Guide:

Kelly Sjol

Kelly took charge in leading this project and played a significant role as the StoryBrand Guide, Strategist, and Copywriter. Kelly specializes in working with working with companies in the tech industry, so this was a perfect project for her.

Problem

APrime needed more than a face-lift on their site, they needed messaging that connected with their clients and communicated, "We understand what you're going through." Like many companies, their old website told APrime's story instead of their client's story. This is the most common issues that we see when auditing and reworking websites for clients.

Solution

As a business that can do almost anything for any company, they spent a lot of time identifying specialized industries and getting very clear about what they do: product development. The messaging had to cut through any technical jargon and bring it down to earth for the average site visitor. They also spent a lot of time writing case studies to show visitors, in action, what it looks like to work with them.

Top-Tier Design

Good design supports good messaging and increases brand authority.

Driving Design Concept:

APrime is a technological leader in their field. They needed a design that communicated forward movement into the future. Thankfully, they didn't shy away from the bold options, as the we think the final design perfectly fits their company's culture and product.

With a well established, simple, and unique logo, we were able to give subtle nods to that logo throughout the website with little pink rectangles, blocky pink checkmarks, and bold all-caps headings.

The biggest win was the custom designed home hero image. It took us a while to come to a final decision on that section, but it was well worth it.

Our Building Process

01. Platform & Technology

We build our sites on WordPress using an intuitive and easy-to-manage page builder (Beaver Builder). We do this primarily because our clients want a website that is simple enough for them to manage on their own: add blog posts, swap out images, make copy changes.

02. Functionality

Most websites we make are what we call "Marketing Sites." They exist to guide a prospective client through the get-to-know-you phase and hand them off to your sales team. Marketing Sites are generally very simple and do not require much beyond a contact form and Active Campaign integration.

APrime Technology had one special functionality element:

  1. A custom post type to allow the easy creation and maintenance of continued Case Studies.

Some of the plugins and embeds we used:

Timeline

A standard website project takes between 11 and 16 weeks, depending on how responsive our clients are able to be when we need their input or feedback. Here are average timeframes:

Onboarding: 1 week

Messaging & Wireframes: 3 weeks

Design & Revisions: 3 weeks

Build: 3 weeks

Revisions: 4 weeks

Launch: 1 week

We had our kick-off call with APrime on October 3rd and launched their site on January 11th. That's just 14 weeks!
