Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?
I look at Google Analytics daily, and the metrics are constantly changing. One consistent metric is the bounce rate, which has gone down dramatically. Regarding organic search, it has plummeted down, which is what we wanted. We wanted people to use those keywords in the search engines and find us based on something they’re looking for and not leave. The average session is a lot longer, and the bounce rate has decreased. There are more lead generations than before. On the previous site, we had a login feature where customers could access documents, etc., but now, the number of leads from the internet where people are interested in what we do has increased dramatically.
As the marketing department, we wanted to increase our capability of generating new leads through our website because we wanted to represent ourselves in a way the customers would appreciate and understood what we’re doing and they would want to reach out. We’ve seen consistent feedback from current customers as well as strong potentials coming through this website that have said the website was easy to follow. Also, it’s easy for them to find products that make sense to meet their goals.
How did Usman Group perform from a project management standpoint?
Usman Group utilizes a couple of tools and platforms to optimize project management. If I get busy, they always made sure to follow up with me and created a group dedicated to success. Their platform reminded me if I needed to submit anything to help them stay on schedule. If there’s something I’d like to add or change, they can tell me how that would change the deadline. They’re also flexible and open to new ideas.
What did you find most impressive about Usman Group?
The quality of their transmittance of my message is impressive. Usman Group listens to the customer. They understood exactly what I wanted even before I knew that I wanted it. Once I communicated to them what I liked and what my goals were, they took that information and created a beautiful, highly interactive, and fluid website. Their ability to communicate the work, passion, and ultimately, the brand itself into a well-designed website, is phenomenal.
Are there any areas Usman Group could improve?
Overall, Usman Group is phenomenal, and I would recommend them to anyone. We did encounter a small glitch at the end of our project, but that was also because we had a unique situation with our website hosting. We had to have it on a certain hosting environment, which was unfamiliar to them. Nevertheless, they learned quickly and adapted to what we needed according to our IT guidelines. It was a learning curve for them, but they were still able to deliver what we needed.
