Quikcard Image

Quikcard

Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/quikcard

Quikcard needed a website refresh that helped current customers access important information and to attract new customers and help them understand what services Quikcard could offer.

Project Goals

  • Quikcard came to us with a number of goals they wanted to
accomplish:
  • Help customers understand their products better to help drive package sign ups
  • Rank on Google against bigger competitors for their top products (ex. Health Spending Accounts)
  • Tell customers about their newly designed mobile app to increase mobile downloads
  • Our Solution

    In order to accomplish these outlined goals, we worked with them on a new website design that focused on improving user experience. We made the site easy to use for current members looking for providers, access to claim forms, and an easy sign in to their member portal. As well as for potential new members, we outlined the various products that Quikcard offers and improved the “Get Started” form to increase new leads. We also made sure to highlight their new mobile app first thing on the page to encourage current members to download as soon as they reached the newly designed site.

    The keys to success for their first two goals ultimately came down to content and a comprehensive on-going SEO and digital marketing strategy. Quikcard outlined Health Spending Accounts (HSA’s) as the main focus area to increase business. We started by writing an in-depth page on all things HSA. Our goal was to provide a potential client with all of the answers they could potentially need when researching HSA’s. In addition, we ensured the content was SEO friendly and aligned their digital marketing campaigns to drive traffic to their HSA webpage.

    Burke Group Image

    Burke Group

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/burke-group

    Burke Group came to us initially to redesign their website. They had an outdated, poorly performing website that was not ranking and was not getting great traffic. Their goal was to update the website on WordPress, improve functionality, and increase optimization.

    Project

    Goals
    • Burke’s goals for their website redesign included:
    • Modern and clean overall design
    • Better user-experience and easy to find information for customers
    • Increased website traffic

    Our Solution

    Our website redesign included improving overall speed and functionality, increasing user-experience, and adding over 75 pages of content to their website. We focused on adding page content that explained to their customers what kind of products and services Burke haad to offer, as well as adding FAQ sections throughout the site, and adding forms on each product page to increase new leads.

    Once the website redesign was complete, we turned our attention to improving SEO to start ranking on google, implementing digital marketing campaigns with custom landing pages on the website, implementing a new email marketing system for some of their larger clients, and initiating a new blog formula for the internal Burke marketing team to continue.

    Coaching New Drivers Image

    Coaching New Drivers

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/coaching-new-drivers

    Coaching New Drivers is a new driver training program. They came to us looking to launch an affiliate program on their website that would help drive traffic and ultimately increase sales of the training program.

    Project Goals

    Coaching New Driver’s

    came to us with two main goals:
    • Create a sales page for their affiliate training program
    • Drive traffic to the website and increase sales of the training course

    Our Solution

    We worked with the Coaching New Drivers team to create the main sales page that outlined the details of their training course and affiliate program. We built the page as a leads funnel page with the goal to drive visitors of the website to purchase the training program. By including an overview of the course, highlights of the coaches, video testimonials, and new driver facts and statistics, we built a content-rich website that encourages visitors to “keep scrolling” to find out more information. All of the calls to action either drive the visitor further down the site or to the sales page to purchase the course content.

    After the site launched, we worked with the Coaching New Driver’s internal team to build out a digital marketing strategy to drive traffic to the website. As the course covers content relevant throughout Canada and the United States, we created a digital marketing strategy that targets a relevant audience throughout the two countries.

    Cranesmart Image

    Cranesmart

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/cranesmart

    Cranesmart, like many of our clients, came to us with a website that they couldn’t edit. They needed a website refresh that provided additional information to their clients and also allowed them to manage the back-end of the website to keep content up to date.

    Project

    Goals

    Cranesmart came to YEG Digital with two goals:

    • Redesign their current website so they could edit and update content once the website was launched
    • Create a digital marketing strategy to help grow their business

    Our Solution

    We worked with the Cranesmart team to redesign their website on the newest WordPress platform. We built comprehensive pages for their products, systems, and applications that allow potential customers to find all of the information they need quickly and efficiently. Post-launch, we walked the Cranesmart team through their easy to manage back end so that moving forward, they were able to make any necessary changes or edits to their website.

    After the website launched, we sat down with the Cranesmart team to come up with a digital marketing strategy that would help bring traffic to the new website and ultimately, help them attract new customers to their business. Cranesmart operates all over the world, so our digital marketing strategy started with a focus on local campaigns, with the plan to extend to global campaigns once we gained a good understanding of initial campaign results and performance.

     

    Inclusion Alberta Image

    Inclusion Alberta

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/inclusion-ab

    Inclusion AB needed an additional microsite to manage their donations. We took a static and out-dated landing page and created a complete site dedicated to helping educate about donations, manage the booking process, and automate the communication.

    Project

    Goals

    Inclusion AB came to us needing a solution to help manage and automate their donation booking process. Their top goals were:

    • Educate people about what can be donated, how scheduled pick-up donations works, and where donation bins are located
    • Improve the booking process for scheduled donation pick-ups
    • Automate the communication when a scheduled pick up was booked

    Our Solution

    To kick off this project, we sat down with the Inclusion AB team to get a solid understanding of the process they currently had in place for managing their donation bookings. Through this, we found they were running a very manual process that involved lots of staff hours. We were able to create an entire microsite accessible from their main site that the main goal was to address all of the information around donations.

    Through the site, potential customers can schedule a pick-up at their home for their donations, find a donation bin located near them, and learn more about what can be donated. We created a completely automated process to schedule a donation pick up. This included auto-emails, reminder emails, and multiple text message reminders to customers. The “Find a Donation” tool we built allows customers to search for bins located near their homes if they are not on a donation pick-up route.

    NCSG Image

    NCSG

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/ncsg

    NCSG needed to update their old, out-dated website to a new mobile-responsive website that could help them grow their business through their multiple locations.

    Project Goals

    NCSG came to YEG Digital because their website was old, outdated, and far from mobile-friendly. They needed

    an update. Their goal was to create a new website with a clean and modern design that was completely optimized and mobile-friendly.

    Our Solution

    We worked with the NCSG team to take their old website to a new fresh version. With a focus on design, mobile use, and optimization we created for them a brand new website. NCSG is a multi-location business, so we also focused on ease of use for each location and highlighting essential information on the main page of the website.

    Once their new website was launched, NCSG asked if we could continue working with them to write additional website content, to help develop their Google My Business listings for all of their locations, and to build out an Intranet for their internal employees. We continue to work with NCSG to help their business grow.

    Kendal Lighting Image

    Kendal Lighting

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/kendal-lighting

    Kendal Lighting needed to update their old Drupal website to a more modern, user-friendly, and easy to update WordPress website. We created a clean and easy-to-navigate for both front and back-end users.

    Project Goals

    Kendal Lighting’s main goal was to have a

    website that was easy to use from a front-end navigation perspective and was easy to manage and keep up to date from the back-end.

    Our Solution

    Kendal Lighting approached us needing to update their old Drupal based website. Their old website was difficult to navigate from a front-end users perspective. It was challenging finding products and did not visually communicate the Kendal Lighting brand very well. In addition, it was difficult for back-end users to go in and update inventory, information, images, etc.

    We refreshed the overall look and functionality to create a front-end website that is easy to navigate, highlights top Kendal Lighting products, and is easily searchable. In the back-end, we created a customized integration that allows Kendal to mass upload information and it will all be auto-filed into appropriate fields to push to the front-end.

    BeLeaf Pharma Image

    BeLeaf Pharma

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/beleaf-pharma

    BeLeaf Pharma was a new start-up company that needed help with their business right from the start. From brand identity and web design to market research, content writing, and digital marketing strategy, we’ve formed a partnership with this client to help their business launch and

    grow.

    Project Goals

    As a new player in the skincare industry, they knew they needed a strong partnership when it came to marketing. On their long list of goals for their launch, their top priorities included:

    • Integrate their logo into a clean and modern brand identity for their digital presence
    • Assist with market research in the various countries their products would be launching and help write content
    • Create a multi-site redirect website platform responsive to where in the world their website visitors were coming from

    Our Solution

    Our initial work with BeLeaf focused on working with them to gain a solid understanding of the skincare industry around the world. We worked on market research in the various countries that BeLeaf was looking to launch to understand product popularity in those markets and who their competitors were. From there, we assisted in writing some great content for their website.

    The BeLeaf website has a unique need in that it needs to be responsive to where in the world the visitor is coming from. Because each country has different products and different rules around skin-care marketing, we needed to come up with a geo-redirect solution based on the IP of the web visitor. Included in that, was the need to translate the website, again based on your location in the world. This was quite a complicated back-end set up but once it was set up it created the automatic geo-redirect and language translation based on the location and language preference of each individual user.

     

    Cole Hofstra Photography Image

    Cole Hofstra Photography

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/cole-hofstra-photography

    Cole Hofstra is a Calgary based wedding photographer that needed to take his business online. In a highly competitive market, Cole wanted a brand and a website that would help him stand out from the competition.

    Project Goals

    Cole Hofstra

    came to YEG Digital looking to take his wedding photography business online. He wanted to build a brand that would showcase his work and create a website that would show clients his portfolio, share a bit more about himself, and ultimately lead to more bookings.

    Our Solution

    We worked with Cole to build a clean and simple brand for his business and built a website that focused heavily on imagery. Understanding the audience that Cole was trying to capture, we knew we needed to create a visually appealing website that encouraged visitors to look through Cole’s portfolio.

    As a photographer, Cole constantly has new content to upload so ensuring that the website management was easy to use was key to helping Cole keep his website up to date with fresh content and images.

    Edmonton Air Show Image

    Edmonton Air Show

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/edmonton-air-show

    The Edmonton Airshow needed to take their website from an old, out-dated platform and create a new site that communicated essential event information to attendees.

    Project Goals

    The Edmonton Airshow is a long-established event in Edmonton that needed

    assistance with their online presence. Their goals were:

    Update old site from an out-dated, non-functioning CMS platform

    Redesign the website with an easy to navigate front end customer-facing layout and an easy to manage back-end editor for their internal team

    Create a content strategy for event ticket buyers

    Our Solution

    We took their old CMS site and created a new, easy to navigate WordPress site. From the front- end-user experience, we focused on highlighting important information for ticket buyers and event attendees. From the back end, we created an easy to manage editor tool that would allow the Edmonton Airshow Team to easily edit and manage their website content.

    Once the site was up and running, we worked with the Edmonton Air Show team to create a content strategy that would provide unique, important, and interesting content for their event attendees. This strategy included social content, blog content, and email newsletters.

    Canadian Skin Cancer Society Image

    Canadian Skin Cancer Society

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/canadian-skin-cancer-society

    The Canadian Skin Cancer Society had an old Wix based website that they could not access to update any content. They needed a platform where they could easily manage the back-end of the website while maintaining a user-friendly front-end.

    Project

    Goals

    The Canadian Skin Cancer Society really had one goal when we initially met with them: be able to manage the website themselves. Their site was originally built on a Wix platform, but they did not have the capability to log in to edit or manage any of their own website content. They wanted a new website that had a clean, user-friendly interface with an easy to manage backend experience.

    Our Solution

    We worked with the Canadian Skin Cancer team to migrate the content from their old website to a brand new WordPress website. We focused on easy usability with a mobile responsive design for the front-customer facing website. Ensuring we kept information in an easy-to-find format so that visitors could find exactly what they were looking for as soon as they visited the website. We also worked with their donation platform integration and the integration of the Google Apps Suite.

    Knowing they needed an easy to manage back end, we built out a custom dashboard on the back end of their new WordPress website to ensure they could log in and easily manage all of the content on their website. We also spent a day with their team post-launch to train any necessary personnel on how to log into the back end of the website and make any changes that they needed. This allowed them to have the confidence and ability to manage their own website without having to always rely on us to make changes.

    My Maz & Brain Campaigns Image

    My Maz & Brain Campaigns

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/university-hospital-foundation-brain-campaign

    The University Hospital Foundation Brain Campaign needed a website built as an information hub and as a portal to collect online donations to help support their Brain Centre and it’s affiliated programs.

    Project

    Goals

    The University Hospital Foundation Brain Campaign had their creative identity established, but needed to create a website where they could share more about what the UHF Brain Centre is working on and the ability to collect donations online from donors.

    Our Solution

    YEG Digital worked with the UHF Brain Campaign to build a website that served as an information hub for the various programs and initiatives that make the UHF Brain Centre a world class facility. In addition, we added online donation functionality to enable donors to donate to the Brain Campaign directly from their website.

    Design-wise, we added in some movement, videos, and some custom functionality to create a clean and informative website. As always, with a back-end that is easy to manage to allow the University Hospital Foundation team to be able to edit the website and keep all of the information up-to-date without any headaches.

    Turnaround Rescue Image

    Turnaround Rescue

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/turnaround-rescue

    Turnaround rescue needed a website designed to help connect their brand and their business to potential clients.

    Project Goals

    Turnaround Rescue approached YEG Digital to assist with two main goals:Create a logo and brand identity for their

    business
    • Create a website to connect their new business with potential clients

    Our Solution

    First off, we worked with the Turnaround Rescue team to gain a solid understanding of their business and the potential clients they were looking to connect with. From there, we worked with our graphic design team to create a simple and clean brand identity and logo.

    Once we had the visual identity established, we created a clean and information based website that helps to communicate not only who Turnaround Rescue is but the essential training and services they offer in the field of emergency rescue. By creating a website that serves as an information hub, we were able to give them an added sales tool to use when talking to potential clients.

    Gem Gallerie Image

    Gem Gallerie

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/gem-gallerie

    Gem Gallerie needed a website to take their business online. We worked with them to build the overall visual identity, website design, and content creation.

    Project Goals

    Gem Gallerie is a local Sherwood Park business that came to YEG Digital to help them take their

    local business online with a well-designed website. Their goal was to build a website that helped connect with customers in the digital space.

    Our Solution

    We worked with Gem Gallerie to first identify an overall visual identity for their new website. This included colours, fonts, imagery, etc. From there, we put together a content plan on what exactly they wanted to feature on their website. We helped layout the sitemap structure, write any necessary content for the initial website pages, and got them started with a blog.

    Additionally, we provided some strategy around their Google My Business listing and helped them optimize their listing so that Gem Gallerie would show up in the map pack for local search results to help drive organic traffic to their website.

    Independent Jewellers Image

    Independent Jewellers

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/independent-jewelers

    Independent Jewelers came to us to help put together a digital marketing and website optimization plan to increase their brand awareness and out-compete local competitors.

    Project Goals

    Independent Jewelers came to us shortly after they had revamped

    their Shopify website. Now that they had a functioning eCommerce website, they needed help with some digital strategy. Their main goals were:
    • Increase overall website traffic
    • Increase brand awareness and identify unique brand differentiators to help set them apart from competitors
    • Create a 6 month digital marketing strategy that would aide in the first two goals and also increase online purchases

    Our Solution

    Our partnership with Independent Jewelers started with an in-person meeting at their showroom. Being the largest jewelry showroom in Canada we wanted to see this in person! A key to creating a solid digital strategy is to know what sets you apart from your competitors and showroom size is definitely one for Independent Jewelers. We sat down with their marketing team to outline some additional brand differentiators and discuss how their digital marketing could work hand in hand with some website optimization to achieve their outlined goals.

    We worked together to outline a 6-month digital marketing plan that included Google Display campaigns, Google Merchant Shopping Campaigns, Google Search Ads, and overall website optimization. We pair this strategy with monthly meetings to review, analyze, and recommend adjustments to campaigns in order to improve performance and learn what campaigns are showing success for the client. 

    Vision Gallery Image

    Vision Gallery

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/vision-gallery

    The Vision Gallery came to YEG Digital to convert their old, poorly functioning site to a modern, mobile-friendly WordPress website.

    Project Goals

    The Vision Gallery came to us with three main goals:

    • Convert old HTML website to a new WordPress
    Website
  • Improve conversion optimization within the site
  • Compete in local search rankings for multiple locations
  • Our Solution

    By converting their old, out-dated HTML website to a new, optimized WordPress based website, we were able to see an almost instant improvement in their overall website performance. Being a multi-location store, we needed to not only focus on highlighting their various service locations to increase foot traffic to those locations, but also improve their online form conversions. We focused on optimizing each product page with a lead form that was searchable from the main page.

    We worked with the Vision Gallery to improve site content, implement some SEO strategy, and consulted on some digital marketing strategy that would improve their overall search results ranking. In addition, we worked with each of the Vision Gallery’s locations to optimize their Google My Business listings to also improve search rankings and appear in the Google Map Pack.

    Dreams Take Flight Image

    Dreams Take Flight

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/dreams-take-flight

    Dreams Take Flight needed a solution to integrate their 10 separate chapter websites into one integrated website that gave access to each individual chapter to make content updates and edits.

    Project Goals

    Dreams Take Flight came to us with a complex

    integration need. They had 10 separate chapter websites that were not working in conjunction with each other. Their main goal was to take the 10 websites and integrate them into one front-facing website. From there, they wanted to grant access to each chapter individually for them to go into their page and make any necessary content updates or changes.

    Our Solution

    The Dreams Take Flights websites were all built on an old version of WordPress. Our first order of business was to take the content from each of the separate websites and migrate it into one parent website. From there, access was granted to each chapter so that they could log in to edit their page, but not make any changes anywhere else on the website. This was a lot of custom accessibility set-up on the back-end of wordpress to manage the custom access levels.

    In addition to the accessibility build-out, we also integrated a custom donation platform within the site that allows donors to donate directly on the main website. This giving platform also manages monthly automated donations, yearly donation tax receipts, and donor thank you letters.

    Haven Shop Image

    Haven Shop

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/haven

    Haven Shop needed a strategy on connecting their analytics from their main website to their Shopify site and a way to use their analytics to closely measure and report on digital ROI.

    Project Goals

    Haven Shop is an online eCommerce retailer and came to YEG Digital with a need to

    connect the analytics from their main site and their Shopify site and to then use those analytics to analyze shopping behaviours, conversion metrics, and overall ROI.

    Our Solution

    We worked with the Haven Shop team to seamlessly combine the online analytics from both of their site feeds into one dashboard where they would have a high-level look into the digital performance of their online business.

    We helped them create a digital reporting strategy to help measure site traffic, track shopping behaviours, track cart abandonment rates, study top visited pages, report on conversions, and ultimately have a clear insight into their overall ROI.

    AB Corridor Image

    AB Corridor

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/ab-corridor

    The Alberta Innovation Corridor needed a website to serve as an information hub for their multiple initiatives. We helped create a dynamic landing page that clearly communicates what the AB Corridor is all about.

    Project Goals

    The AB Corridor came to YEG Digital with

    a goal of designing a single-page landing page that would help explain the various initiatives and priorities of the AB Corridor partnership and could serve as an information hub for future projects.

    Our Solution

    We met with the AB Corridor team to gain a solid understanding of the role of the partnership team – consisting of Calgary Economic Development, Innovate Edmonton, and Platform Calgary. Once we had a clear understanding of the initiatives of the AB Corridor, we set out to develop and design a dynamic information based website that the AB Corridor could use to communicate its purpose, ongoing projects, and important updates.

    The result is a clean and simple, landing page with some unique visual elements that clearly outlines who the AB Corridor is, what their goals are, and where they are headed in the future

    Shovel Ready - City of Edmonton Image

    Shovel Ready - City of Edmonton

    Project: www.yegdigital.com/project/shovel-ready

    This City of Edmonton initiative needed to translate their brochure to an online, one-page landing page. We took their static content and created a dynamic, information-based website for them.

    Project Goals

    The City of Edmonton is heading the “Shovel Ready” initiative

    and needed assistance taking their information brochure and translating that brochure to an online webpage they could use to send to potential supporters. Their main goal was to have a one-page site that housed all of the essential information regarding the initiative.

    Our Solution

    Having a clear deliverable with ready-to-use content, we were able to turn this project around quickly for the client. YEG Digital essentially created an “online” brochure landing page that communicates all of the information essential to this initiative.

    We created a one-page scrolling landing page that ends with a lead submission form to capture information from potential supporters. This site can also be used by the City of Edmonton to garner potential partnership opportunities in support of the Shovel Ready initiative.

    Feedback summary: 

    The third-party client was exceptionally pleased, offering internal stakeholders additional tasks. The site functions smoothly, and it recieves more traffic and leads than previous methods. YEG Digital is a highly accessible team with a speedy workflow.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    We provide small to mid-sized businesses with Marketing strategy, guidance, and execution. We work with a number of clients across Western Canada. I am the President and Principal Consultant of the company.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire YEG Digital?

    A larger client was struggling with an old clunky website. There was no strategy, no analytics, no metrics, poor search results, and little to no optimization. Without a new website, the client would fall further and further behind their competition.

    What were your goals for this project?

    The goal was to efficiently implement a new website that is built to perform not only today but into the future. The website needed to have metrics, analytics, appear in search results across Canada and the US and have the best customer experience in comparison to local competitors.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    I've had the pleasure of working with YEG Digital on a number of projects big and small. When this project came across my desk, I knew YEG Digital was the group for the job.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    They designed, developed and launched a new website for the client. The offered consultation, strategy digital solutions and more to various divisions within the business. They also walked the client through implementation and launch offering training for backend management, hosting services and ongoing support and consultation.

    What was the team composition?

    The project team was composed of two individuals (Paul & Kelsey). Paul lead the project from conception through to launch and Kelsey supported from an administration aspect. The size of the team remained consistent throughout the project.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    Our solution was developed and launched ahead of schedule. The leadership team was so impressed with the results we were offered additional work and consultation.

    While the solution is only a few months into the deployment, the client has already seen an uptick in local business leads, an increase in website visits and a decrease in phone calls to administrative staff asking questions the website now answers.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    Project management was seamless from start to today. The team effectively communicated with both myself and the client throughout the entire process. YEG Digital made themselves available to us through a variety of channels throughout the build as well from email to phone to text to video chat to face-to-face meetings. This helped move the project forward and minimize downtime.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    We continue to find YEG Digital's expertise the most impressive. We continue to throw problems and challenges at them and they are somehow able to always find a solution that works. We have yet to give them a problems they haven't been able to solve. Very impressive.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    There is very little they could do to improve. This was a knock-out project that was deployed ahead of schedule and under budget.

    Feedback summary: 

    The website designed and developed by YEG Digital is extremely sleek and user-friendly, impressing project stakeholders and users alike. Their team prioritized client relationships, maintaining an extremely rapid response rate and providing both creative and technical insight on the project.

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

    BACKGROUND

    Introduce your business and what you do there.

    My organization is called the Edmonton Scotch Club and I am the president.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with YEG Digital?

    We just wanted to get a little bit more publicity and get our name out there a bit by creating a website. In addition, we wanted people coming to our site to have an easy experience finding what they needed and for our site to look good while they’re doing it.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    We don’t have a lot of technical experience on our team, so when we started, they just asked what we were looking for and what sort of goals we had in mind. From there, we worked towards what we wanted as a final product and he provided us with ideas from his experience on what works well and what doesn’t.

    They used WordPress for our site so that it would be user-friendly and easy to edit. Whenever I have any issues, I will fire off an email or a text about it, and they’ll either fix it themselves really quickly or show me how to do it for future edits, and I believe they chose WordPress to allow that option.

    What is the team composition?

    I just work with Paul (CEO, YEG Digital) directly.

    How did you come to work with YEG Digital?

    We were recommended to go to YEG Digital by word of mouth, from a mutual friend of ours. We looked at their websites and saw that they were really clean and professional-looking, which was exactly what we were looking for.

    How much have you invested with them?

    We spent a little less than $5,000 in total.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    I believe we worked together on the two websites we’ve completed so far from 2017–April 2019.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    The website is really clean and not busy, which were my main concerns. It looks a lot more professional than a lot of the websites I deal with. When you click on the site, it’s clear how to find the information that you need, and it’s also clear that it was designed that way specifically.

    How did YEG Digital perform from a project management standpoint?

    Everything was done in a very good amount of time, and they gave us very realistic expectations about how long that would be. They’re also extremely responsive when it comes to upgrades that I ask for from them. I almost always have a fix to the problem or a response about when we can figure it out within an hour of contacting them.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    They make the whole process so easy that it doesn’t even feel like work. We didn’t have a lot of extra bandwidth when we started the project, so that helped us a lot.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    I can’t think of anything he could do differently, whether it’s response times or the appearance of the website itself. I have no negative feedback on the experience whatsoever.

    Do you have any advice for potential customers?

    I guess my advice would just be to trust his professionalism and experience. He has seen pretty much every issue you could have, so not only does he have your best interests at heart, he has the knowledge to achieve those goals.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I own a boutique photography studio specializing in weddings, boudoir, and headshots.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire YEG Digital?

    I hired YEG Digital initially to help me with management of my website being hosted by a different company as I was encountering problems, and in the end I ended up hiring Paul to re-design my entire website and he now hosts and maintains it.

    What were your goals for this project?

    I wanted a website that was simple to navigate, visually very appealing to showcase my photography work and attract a modern client, and that I would be able to update the content on myself. I wanted to maintain the content from my current website blog to ensure my SEO ranking wasn't affected, but to still incorporate that content and showcase my newest work first.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    I was referred to YEG Digital by another photographer who had used Paul to design their website. I reached out for referrals because I was specifically looking for a company that would work with me to create a website that I could have a lot of input into, and be able to have the ability to edit on the backend myself after the fact. I was happy with my initial consultation with Paul and felt confident in hiring him.

    Describe the project in detail.

    Paul and I went back and forth on the design for a while primarily because at first I was naive and thought I'd be able to do a lot of the work myself. He was patient with me and not pushy at all, and was very realistic with me about what to expect. He allowed me to try a few things, and let me come to my own conclusion that it was best to have him design my site. I sent him a few design ideas, and he created something even better than I had hoped!

    We had a phone call and an in person meeting, and shared a google doc to be able to address all the functionality I wanted, and for him to clarify what my goals were. While the new site was being created he was hosting my old site and making sure it was still functional so that I didn't have any interruption in service. He communicated very clearly the tasks that I needed to complete (providing content, and updating blog posts) in order to launch the site, sent me a staging site so I could view everything before it launched and give feedback, and then ultimately went live! There were a few minor fixes to be made after it was launched and he took care of them right away.

    What was the team composition?

    I'm the only team member on my end of the project, and I only ever dealt one on one with Paul from YEG Digital

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

    Before this process, my blog was at a standstill, and my website functionality was not streamlined. Now I have a much easier time updating the back end, and I'm in the process of catching up on all the posts I fell behind on. Ultimately that's going to have a big impact on my google ranking. The feedback I've received from clients and family and friends is that they like both the visual impact of my site and the ease of navigation.

    How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

    This project was conducted at busy times for both myself and YEG Digital, and I anticipate it may have been completed a bit faster if it had happened at a slightly different time frame for both of us. However, we were able to communicate easily about any delays on either end, which I really appreciated. I was able to reach Paul whenever I needed to.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    I've been completely satisfied with everything that YEG Digital has done for my website. Mine is a reasonably simple website, but I felt as though Paul gave it the same care that he would have a larger project.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    None that I can think of!

    BACKGROUND

    Introduce your business and what you do there.

    I’m the owner of a wedding photography company.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with YEG Digital?

    My goal was to increase my market value and make my business more easily discoverable. I also needed a website that would put my best foot forward once people did find me.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    They upgraded the platform on which I was hosting my website to make it more modern, migrating my outdated site to WordPress. They also got to know my style of business to help curate what would make a good online portfolio that would best represent my work.

    What is the team composition?

    Paul (Principal & Director of Strategy, YEG Digital) was my main point of contact.

    How did you come to work with YEG Digital?

    They were recommended to me by another photographer. Even in our initial reaction, I noticed how honest they were. It felt like a good business, which is hard to find nowadays.

    How much have you invested with them?

    In total, we’ve invested $10,000–$25,000.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We began working together in January 2013, and our engagement is ongoing.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    My Google ranking raised significantly, and I get more hits than ever before. I haven’t been tracking more specific metrics, only because things have been so successful and I haven't had the time. 

    When I first showcased my site to other photographers and launched my re-branding, a lot of people mentioned it was clean-cut and very easy to navigate. I went from something that was outdated to leading the charge on what a website should look like. Overall, people were impressed with it.

    How did YEG Digital perform from a project management standpoint?

    They performed very well. They were easy to communicate with and there were no major delays when I needed something or needed to communicate. Someone always gets back to me in the same day, and sometimes in the same hour. There was never a struggle to get something fixed. It depends on the urgency, but we typically email more often than not. If the situation call for a phone call, they always pick up.

    One time, when WordPress was down, they took it upon themselves to contact me regarding what had happened and what was happening next. They kept in contact with me to relieve a lot of stress that I was going through from not understanding on my end what was going on.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    I’m most impressed with their commitment to customer service.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    No, I can’t think of anything. Everything has gone smoothly thus far and I’ve been happy.

    Do you have any advice for potential customers?

    My advice is to have an honest conversation about your goals, what you’re looking for, and your budget. It’s really nice to have big ideas and dreams, but sometimes you can’t afford it. It’s important to start small and scale up as you attain more success.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I am the Lead Strategist and Principal at Anthem Creative. We're a digital storytelling and branding shop that specializes in helping non-profits navigate and leverage all things digital to engage more people and grow their impact.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire YEG Digital?

    More and more clients began asking us to build websites for them and landing pages for digital campaigns that we were helping them with. We don't have an in-house developer so we have partnered with YEG Digital to develop websites and landing pages for our non-profit clients.

    What were your goals for this project?

    Our goals on every project we've worked on with YEG Digital are always to delight our clients with websites that bring their cause to life in fresh and exciting ways and engage site visitors on an emotional level that leads to desired action (volunteering, donations, etc.).

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    I met Paul years ago through a mutual friend when I was leading another organization. I've tracked along with his work and what he's been up to with YEGDigital and I respect his expertise and talent. When we started looking to outsource web development he was my first call.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    It's simple. We design the front-end in collaboration with our clients based on their unique needs and our strategic thinking. We then work with YEGDigital to nail down functionality and UX before handing over design comps and files for them to develop the website.

    What was the team composition?

    We work primarily with Paul, the owner. He's responsive and efficient and super knowledgeable which creates tremendous value for our clients. We're not only able to get a high-end product from him, we're able to leverage his wealth of knowledge and expertise to benefit our clients.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    Partnering with YEGDigital has given us the flexibility and freedom to offer web services to our clients with the confidence that we can execute at a high level of quality.

    This increases the value we are able to offer non-profits as we work towards being able to meet their digital needs more holistically. It has impacted our bottom line positively and more importantly allowed us to build stronger client relationships by being able to offer more support and services that create value that is beyond their expertise.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    Project management has always been efficient and effective with YEGDigital. Because the work we do together is fairly similar each time we have established a workflow that keeps things simple and moving forward smoothly.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Everything! They are fast, the quality is remarkable, and the price is fair. The expertise they provide our team is significant, and the value they create for our clients makes them a dream to work with.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire YEG Digital?

    Our initial website was developed by an amateur entry level person, and our website ended up going into "Google Jail". YEG Digital has been helping us over the last 2 years in getting a website together that reflects who we are, what we do and brings value to our customers. He rebuilt everything from the ground up and brought our rankings from non existent to page 1!

    We were so impressed with the work he did, that we have now hired him on as a consultant and I work very closely with Paul and he guides us through ALL aspects of Digital Marketing and how to tie all the pieces together to unite our messages across print and the digital world.

    What were your goals for this project?

    Instead of "completing a job", we have been able to develop something that will really truly help us stand out from the competition.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    I have worked with Paul in the past before YEG Digital and was always impressed with his knowledge and work ethic. He also comes highly recommended by other industry professionals and is well known. Once meeting with him and I was sold!

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    Paul has helped us in many aspects of digital marketing:

    1. Fixing our keywords to help us in google rankings
    2. Rebuilding our website both from a visual and functional standpoint
    3. Facilitated SEO enriched copy writing
    4. Runs google ad words
    5. Provides strategic planning
    6. Email Blasts
    7. Blog Posts
    8. Digital Marketing in General

    Paul has helped us with so much more than just this, as he is someone who is always innovative and coming up with new ideas.

    What was the team composition?

    Although there are multiple people involved in the day to day, we have a core team that communicates everything else to the rest of the staff or other members that need to get involved. He works with myself, the creative manager, our marketing manager, our CSR Manager, as well as the Owner and President on other high level projects.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    Our website went form non ranking to within the top of the first page on multiple key words. Our website traffic and engagement has sky rocketed. Our google ad spend is less, yet more effective. Our digital marketing is being refined and fine tuned to become more effective across multiple channels instead of bits and pieces.

    Our goals and objectives have really shifted, progressed and adapted as we work with YEG Digital. Although it's great to have an expert that is able to "Fix Your Website", it's even better to have someone that looks at the big picture and the future and is always offering up suggestions to grow and expand.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    YEG Digital are willing to position themselves where ever they are needed. We currently have them working in multiple roles. They consult high end projects with our owner. They project manage our digital marketing so we can concentrate on our day to day. AND they act has small scale help where ever we need. There is no project too big or small for them.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Any company I'm impressed with is because of the people behind it. Paul is an absolutely amazing person to work with. His knowledge is second to none and I always feel like I learn something every time I talk to him. He works well with others, is will to collaborate, or if you need him to take something over, he is comfortable with that too and make you feel at ease.
