Website Revamp for Nordic Museum Image

Website Revamp for Nordic Museum

In preparation to open a new building in Seattle, the Nordic Museum wanted to expand the community and increase membership. With so many activities available, Bizango helped the Nordic Museum become more interactive. By integrating Eventbrite for ticketing, the website is more accessible. As a result, the website was seamlessly launched with the opening of the new museum building this year.

Website Redesign for Hokanson Image

Website Redesign for Hokanson

As a medical device manufacturer for over 40 years, Hokanson needed a website with a larger focus on UX rather than industry specifications. Using market research, Bizango redesigned the website and reemphasizes Hokanson’s values. Balancing technical information and content portals, the site is now more accessible and has increased Hokanson’s customer base.

Website Development for RW Anderson Image

As a result, the company’s search rankings have increased.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The website, which has been launched but not formally announced, receives praise from users and stakeholders alike. Bizango’s ability to translate internal values to a visually-appealing site was extremely impressive, as were the team’s project management and communication styles.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the director of business development for Foushee & Associates, a general contractor in the greater Seattle area.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bizango?

Our website was extremely old. It needed to be completely dismantled and rebuilt.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Bizango began the project by conducting an in-depth interview about our company’s culture, values, and goals for the website. As a general contractor, we wanted our site to be an informative tool that encourages referrals to partner with us. Afterward, we gave their team content and asked them to build the site around it.

In the rebuild, we maintained a lot of the functionality of our old site, focusing our efforts on revamping the design. We wanted less text and more graphics, to hold people’s attention. Bizango was responsible for collecting the text that we did need and integrating it onto pages, along with photos we provided ahead of time. 

The team offered their own platform for the website platform as well as for website maintenance, and the software allows for very simple updates. They did all of the page creation in InDesign before converting it onto the site.

What is the team composition?

Mark (Co-Founder & Creative Director) handled the design aspect of our project, while Elise (Project Manager) was one of our main points of contact. I coordinated our contract with Stewart (Head of Sales), and a few other folks that I wasn’t in contact with were assigned to our account.

How did you come to work with Bizango?

We had a few referrals, but they didn’t seem to be the right fit. I ended up searching for local web creators, and Bizango was one of the results. Their company culture seemed really positive, and we were confident they would provide us with the focus and attention we wanted.

How much have you invested with them? 

We spent about $30,000 on the project.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement took place from January 2019–February 2020. The actual project only took about six months, but we put it on hold for some time while we had some internal staffing changes.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

We haven’t announced our launch yet, but the website is live. Plenty of people have navigated to it so far, and the feedback we get on it has been overwhelmingly positive.

Internally, we’re ecstatic. The site is much more representative of our company and culture than the old one was. Essentially, that was exactly what we were looking for — a platform that visualizes that we’re a top-notch contractor who takes good care of our customers. 

How did Bizango perform from a project management standpoint?

If Elise had a construction management degree, I’d hire her in seconds. She was very responsive, pleasant, and concerned with making sure we were happy with the project. We kept in touch mainly over email and phone calls. 

At one point in the process, we weren’t happy with some of their deliverables, and they immediately set up a meeting in our office to reach realignment. It was a very impressive, positive experience, and from that point on we were completely satisfied.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their ability to listen to our ideas and implement them on a website was really outstanding. We lacked a technical vocabulary, and the fact that they were able to form what we were communicating in terms of culture and values into a website was incredible. We were also really appreciative of their level of responsiveness.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We enjoyed working with them. There was nothing we were overly disappointed in at all.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be as open and transparent as you can be. Invest a lot of time in discovering what you’re trying to communicate with your website before you meet with the team, because they’ll do a great job of listening to you and executing it. Bizango wants to know what your values are, what you want your website to feel like, and how your company operates.

Bizango transformed an awkward, archaic website into a sleek online platform. They’re accommodating to non-technical individuals, which helped the collaboration process run smoothly. Overall, they produced excellent results for a fair price.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am a principal at Sider + Byers, a mechanical engineering firm.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bizango?

Our website was extremely dated, so we searched for a local web developer who could develop a new site with a modern design.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our industry is not particularly high-tech, so we didn’t need cutting-edge features; we only needed a clean platform that displayed our company’s bio and contact information. Although it would have been more thrilling for them to implement cutting-edge features, they never challenged our preference for simplicity. They interviewed us at our office to get a sense of what we wanted to achieve with the new website. After creating an initial design, they sent us the draft to review. We gave them feedback, and they went back to make updates and revisions. This cycle continued until our teams were satisfied with the website.

What is the team composition?

We had three contacts at one point, but we worked with two people for the majority of the project.

How did you come to work with Bizango?

We had a preference to work with a local company so that we could easily meet up with them when necessary. Bizango was one of the top companies that appeared in our web search. Their office was five minutes away from ours, and they had stellar reviews, so we reached out to them and eventually hired them.  

How much have you invested with them?

Their web development services cost us $8,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

They started building the website in February 2017, and we launched it in May 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Our website hasn’t amplified our audience, but that wasn’t our goal. Although many companies are using their sites to generate business, we only wanted to provide a resource for our existing clients. They built a simple website with straightforward functionality, just as we requested.  

How did Bizango perform from a project management standpoint?

Despite their advanced technical background, they patiently explained their work in a way that we could comprehend; this also helped us articulate our goals more eloquently. Most of our interactions occurred during the reviewal stages, whereas communication was sparse during the development stages.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s hard to say what we love most about Bizango because they have so many great qualities. We appreciated their friendliness, but we also admired their honesty. Perhaps their competence is their best characteristic, considering their skills were the primary factor in our website’s success.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Working with them was great; their prices were fair, they were friendly, and they allowed us to be ourselves with a simple website. We don’t have any suggestions for improvement because they did a great job all around.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Give Bizango a chance. We had a great experience, and you probably will too.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I was the CEO of Blue Oak Energy, a solar engineering and construction provider for commercial and utility-scale facilities, during the duration of this project.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Bizango?

I hired Bizango to establish the company's image as a highly technical and capable business that is head-and-shoulders above its competition. We asked Bizango to take our marketing and SEO to the next level. We ultimately wanted to quickly identify the high-value customers.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to build our brand and reputation to increase our hit rate and profitability.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We contacted Bizango based on their reputation. After an initial phone interview and an in-person meeting, we were impressed with their full-service marketing team. They had the capabilities to produce graphics, perform SEO, and could provide a well-rounded solution for all our marketing needs.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

Bizango developed a new website for us with the flexibility to easily adjust our marketing language. With their technical solution, we could add new information and build our portfolio ourselves without an intermediary. They implemented SEO best practices to help adjust our approach and increase our marketing success rates.

What was the team composition?

Four people on their team were involved in the process of building our new website and marketing solution. Their project manager was the main point of contact and dealt with us throughout the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Our website traffic increased about 40% and we had more pre-qualified phone calls coming in from new customers.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Thier project manager was crucial to the success of our project and she was available at any time to address our questions.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

From the very beginning, we could tell they wanted to build a long-term relationship with us. Bizango's hands-on approach from their whole team really impressed us. We worked directly with their team and were always their number one priority. They had other projects going on, but they really cared about achieving our goals. As far as we could tell, nothing was ever outsourced and they had our best interests in mind at all times.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

They should add more examples of their work in their office so clients can get a better idea of what they do.
