THE YARD KW: FULL SERVICE DIGITAL MARKETING CAMPAIGN FOR INTERNATIONAL E-COMMERCE & PHYSICAL LOCATION BRAND

See Full Case Study Here: https://www.visualfizz.com/ecommerce-social-media-case-study/

Quick Summary:

Their assortment of unique and fun accessories, home goods, and lifestyle products are focused on strong conceptual design, and this aesthetic is echoed throughout their physical store from in Kuwait, where sales are exploding at the physical store. While sales from the physical storefront were high, sales from online channels, such as search engines like Google, social media channels, and other online channels, were not as strong. The founders knew their interesting and unique products could resonate and connect with a much larger international market, and they needed a long-term partner to create profitable sales from these channels.

Quick Summary:

Toyota came to VisualFizz with a request to build the presentation that would introduce the 2019 Avalon to dealership owners.

ONE HOPE UNITED: CREATIVE DESIGN AND SALES PAGE DEVELOPMENT FOR INCREASED DONATIONS

View full case study here: https://www.visualfizz.com/web-development-design-chicago-non-profit/

 

Quick Summary: 

Utilizing marketing strategies during the holiday season is a stressful undertaking for most businesses. Fundraising during the holiday season was even more challenging for One Hope United since most people prefer to give tangible gifts rather than donating cash. OHU decided that they needed to pair physical ‘gifts’ or benefits to each donor’s monetary gift to attach the same emotional connections to the donations as traditional gift giving.

One Hope United decided to launch a virtual Wishbook, where rather than donating a lump sum, donors could visualize what their money would fund. For example, $75 bought a new interview outfit for a teen’s first job. $50 purchased room decor for students in residential housing. $30...

The Review
Feedback summary: 

In one year of using the new tool, online donations doubled and the giving season lasted months longer. VisualFizz impressed with their thorough preparation, creative ideas, and diverse technical capabilities. They were clearly committed to delivering an exceptional product.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

One Hope United is a private, nonprofit human service organization that has invested in children and families for over 120 years. We offer a diverse array of early childhood education, prevention, intervention, and community-based programs. Our vision is for every child and family to enjoy life without limits. I am the Donor Relations Officer for Cook County, focusing on private fundraising in the Chicago area.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire VisualFizz?

Several years ago, One Hope United created a Wishbook tool to replace a large-scale toy drive that diminished our fundraising capacity during the holiday season. While the initial version of the Wishbook achieved moderate success, donations decreased between years one and two.

We decided to completely revamp the Wishbook as a fundraising tool. This included creating new content for the online portal where we would mostly interact with new prospects and donors. VisualFizz redesigned and developed new web content for the online Wishbook portal.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goals were to increase donations, create a more personalized experience for the donor, attract new donors to One Hope United, and make the Wishbook a functional fundraising platform throughout the year rather than just during the holiday season.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We selected VisualFizz after several personal meetings. We gave their team information about our work and mission, shared background about the history of our gift-in-kind drive and the transition to Wishbook, and offered details about the direction we hoped to pursue for the next iteration of this tool.

VisualFizz team members attended a focus group during the initial planning phase. They were clearly prepared and well-versed in the information we had previously shared. Additionally, they shared several interesting, creative insights about how they could contribute to this project.

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

VisualFizz was built the Wishbook landing page. They built an easy-to-navigate web page that features all our donation options, the OHU/Wishbook video, a Wishbook PDF download, and a contact form. The page was integrated with the Raiser’s Edge fundraising software and incorporated modern design and imagery with the proper branding, colors, and fonts.

The Wishbook, its landing page, and its online content were widely promoted on all One Hope's social media platforms. They were distributed to our entire donor database throughout Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, and Florida.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Between 2016 and 2017, One Hope United more than doubled our online donations with the Wishbook tool. The campaign has extended beyond the holiday season, and we continue to receive online gifts. The success of this year's campaign was also clearly evident on Giving Tuesday. Again, One Hope United more than doubled what we raised last year.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was very impressed that the VisualFizz team could develop a range of creative, compelling ideas and images to bring our donation options to life and connect both new and existing donors with One Hope United's mission and vision. They utilized several departments, platforms, and software with skill and enthusiasm. They were a great pleasure to work with, and we were tremendously happy with the results!
