When Rose Paving connected with VisualFizz in 2018, the Asphalt and Paving company needed to revamp its digital presence. After expanding

nationwide in 2002, Rose has experienced consistent sales growth, and as a result, an ever-increasing demand for streamlining and improving their digital interactions with the customer. But the rapid expansion had left Rose Paving without cohesive brand representation across the web. With so many locations across the U.S. and customers in such drastically different demographics, Rose Paving needed VisualFizz to streamline the paving company’s digital marketing processes to better serve its clients.

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

See Full Case Study Here: https://www.visualfizz.com/case-studies/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. That’s where VisualFizz comes in!

Quick Summary:

Toyota came to VisualFizz with a request to build the presentation that would introduce the 2019 Avalon to dealership owners. VisualFizz worked on an extremely condensed timeline, and was

available to react and redesign slides based on real-time feedback. Toyota was looking for creative guidance on the feel of the deck, and strategic thinking around how the content would flow. VisualFizz concepted a deck that worked within the Toyota brand, but pushed the boundaries on graphics and typefaces.

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

View full case study here: https://www.visualfizz.com/case-studies/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 covered GED testing costs. Attaching a tangible item to each donation helped the donor create an emotional connection to their giving, and often encouraged them to give more. There was even an option to purchase the entire Wishbook for $1000, which many parishes, corporations, and individuals participated in.

Feedback summary: 

VisualFizz team's output was phenomenal. They implemented several changes while keeping communication open. They also consistently delivered on time. Customers can expect dedication, commitment, and professionalism from them. 

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

At the time I was working for a global and national nonprofit working to build leadership skills for youth affected by poverty and building schools around the world.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire VisualFizz, and what were your goals?

The charity needed a website refresh after falling stagnant around 5 years. Our goals were to update as mobile-responsive, to add in interactive features, and to drive faster conversion points to our key areas of community support and volunteerism.

SOLUTION

How did you select VisualFizz and what were the deciding factors?

Our team went through a lengthy RFP process. We started with a long-list of agencies, narrowed down to a shortlist of 5, then had in-person or phone interviews with our top 3. Deciding factors for Visual Fizz were responsiveness, communication, clear strategies, and a timeline of the deliverable.

Describe the scope of work in detail, including the project steps, key deliverables, and technologies used.

  1. Discovery
  2. Draft of Wireframe
  3. Review/tweaks of the wireframe
  4. Production/coding
  5. UAT, authentication
  6. Last-minute review, tweaks
  7. Release

How many people from the vendor's team worked with you, and what were their positions?

About 4 to 5, ranging from owner to developer to project manager and everyone in between. A great team, solid.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any measurable outcomes of the project or general feedback about the deliverables?

The deliverable was beautiful, few things to tweak with the constant communication, and most importantly on time.

Describe their project management style, including communication tools and timelines.

Superior project management leadership and I consider myself a strong PM at heart. They cut the clutter of too many comms tools and patch you right into their PM to limit the firehouse of extraneous messages. Again, they get to the point and effective.

What did you find most impressive or unique about this company?

Their humbleness, good-nature, willingness to collaborate always, technical skills, and creativity impressed us.

Are there any areas for improvement or something they could have done differently?

No, I'm excited to see where this company goes and who they continue to elevate in the digital landscape.

Feedback summary: 

The client reports seeing upward trends since bringing VisualFizz on, including improved site speed and more user-friendly web pages. The team manages the project well by accommodating the client’s schedule and communicating seamlessly. They’re knowledgeable, responsive, and easy to work with.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re an online blog that does mattress and bedding reviews. I’m the owner.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with VisualFizz?

They do some of our SEO work, as well as things on the backend that I can’t do myself.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

VisualFizz has helped develop our website’s backend to improve our SEO, site speed, and how our pages are being crawled by Google. They’ve implemented a few things specific to SEO needs. They use Google Analytics and several other platforms.

What is the team composition?

On average, we work with three people. I believe one of them is the owner, one does development, and one is an SEO strategist.

How did you come to work with VisualFizz?

I did a little research for SEO companies that I thought could handle the scope of work we were looking for. I spoke to them further and figured that they were the best match for us.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $30,000–$40,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

It started in June 2019, and it’s a continual project. They do monthly SEO for us.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They've been very consistent in making improvements from the time we started until now. We've definitely seen upward trends with them. Our numbers have remained steady, if not increased. They have helped improve our site speed and made certain pages faster and more user-friendly. Overall, they’ve improved our site.

How did VisualFizz perform from a project management standpoint?

VisualFizz has done a great job. They’re very easy to communicate with, and they get back to us very quickly. They’re always on the ball with everything. They’re very customer-focused and make sure that the client is in the know. They also work around our work schedule, so they’re very accommodating and easy to work with.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their knowledge is impressive. They have a very well-versed team of people in place. Their communication has also stood out to me. They always put the customer first, which goes a long way.

Are there any areas they could improve?

At this point, there’s nothing that I can think of.

Any advice for potential customers?

I’d say that communication is key. When you’re looking for any SEO company, ensure that what they’re able to offer is what you really need and are looking for. Other than that, they’ve been a really good company to work with.

They also provide a lot of valuable insight and feedback, trying out new ideas to help improve our digital marketing strategy. 

How did VisualFizz perform from a project management standpoint?

They set up monthly calls with our sales directors from each office to get to know the teams and what their needs or challenges are. Taking the time to do that has helped develop a strong level of trust with our team, which has added a lot of value to the relationship. They're also quick to turn around deliverables and very responsive to our needs. They provide a lot of great insight and out-of-the-box ideas for ways to tackle new challenges.

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!
