The Solution

Understanding the performance of the current website and how well it was aligned to Verne Global’s objectives and desired user journey was paramount, so TBT Marketing first worked with them on a discovery phase including reviewing historical website data, social listening and market research.

The brand identity was then refreshed, designing a sleek, minimalistic and Scandinavian inspired look and feel for the new site as well as creating an array of iconography to replace stock imagery.

A key element of the relaunch involved addressing the correlation between industry verticals and certain Verne Global solutions. This was addressed in the new site structure by providing an optimal user-led experience clearly defining the links for ease of navigation.

TBT also identified the need to leverage an intuitive CMS platform with reusable, customisable content blocks which would provide Verne Global with the flexibility and freedom to manage its website in-house with no further developer input needed, saving resource and delivering value.

Finally, the original website provided no analysis on content downloads, a key step in the customer journey. By implementing appropriate Google Analytics tracking and goals, TBT was able to address the lack of reporting through a comprehensive Google Data Studio report. Providing the missing data and a more in-depth overview of top-performing content, visitor behaviour and more.
