The challenge

Vision Radiology’s previous website and brand were dated and didn’t reflect the practice. Their Marketing team was struggling to make simple changes and lacked a consistent brand to produce new assets.

They challenged us to deliver a flexible new website that would enable them to manage their content, move quickly, and appeal to their target audience.

To achieve their objectives, they recognised that they needed a new brand, website and digital strategy.

The brand

When Vision Radiology first approached us, they had a basic brand that lacked depth and overused stock photography. The nature of having a remote team meant that they had very little photography to use which was limiting their design capabilities.

We delivered a flexible brand identity that incorporated a broader colour palette with primary and secondary colours. We introduced new shape and form into the brand, creating depth and providing visual interest in place of imagery. This approach also enabled Vision to use stock photography in a way that was on-brand and didn’t look like stock imagery.

In addition to the colour palette and imagery, we also evolved the logo and typography.

The website

We utilised the updated brand to create a modern new website design that represented Vision Radiology to prospective clients and employees. Our designers placed people at the centre of the design to visually represent the approachable and personable qualities of Vision Radiology.

We delivered the new website in WordPress to to provide easy content management and a high quality code base for future growth.

SEO strategy

Our Marketing team undertook keyword research and selected target keywords that Vision Radiology could compete and rank for in search engines. We optimised the website in line with the new strategy and trained Vision’s Marketing team how to optimise new website content.

Our SEO strategy enabled Vision Radiology to increase their visibility in search engines and be found by more prospective clients and employees.

 

“Working with Plug & Play was a great experience. I came into the project after it started, and they quickly got me up to speed. The website looks great, and they were instrumental in completing this project on time. I would highly recommend Plug & Play.”

Volition

Increasing lead generation for a life science technology company

Volition is a multinational life science company that develops technology to diagnose and monitor a range of diseases in humans and animals. Their technology sets them apart as industry leaders, providing kits to a wide spectrum of audiences from medical specialists to individual pet owners.

Our challenge was to deliver a new website that targeted each key audience type, encouraging them to make an enquiry or visit Volition’s distributor sites to purchase their own kits.

The challenge

Volition’s main challenge was how they could engage and educate website visitors in the science behind their technology. They needed their new website to attract new visitors, be more visible, and deliver their key messaging in an engaging way. 

The client challenged us to deliver a fresh design that showcased their products and worked as a marketing tool for the business.

View site

The website

We utilised the digital strategy created by our marketing team to inform the new page hierarchy and landing page structure. By combining UX design and marketing insights, we produced the best user experience and SEO performance for Volition. We implemented a clean and user friendly navigation to ensure that content is accessible and that users are guided through to conversion.

Our designers evolved Volition’s visual brand to create the impact and flexibility required for the new website design. We utilised the bright sub-brand colours to categorise content and designed a clear navigation to encourage users to land on relevant content. 

As part of the wider project, we merged 2 domains into 1 new website. We implemented SEO and design best practice during this process to retain and grow keyword rankings from both domains. 

 

Marketing & SEO strategy

One of Volition’s key complaints with their previous website was the high bounce rate. They were losing a huge percentage of the traffic they attracted and couldn’t pinpoint what was driving the issue – was it the website, the keywords they ranked for, or their messaging?

Our Digital Strategist identified that the content on their old website exclusively catered to users who already knew Volition’s product. Therefore, users who had a problem but didn’t know Volition’s product name became lost leads, which was one factor impacting bounce rates across the site. 

We recommended taking a solution-focused approach on the new website. We developed a new site structure and keyword groups that were built to support Volition’s wider goals – increasing leads and reducing high bounce rates.

Improving keyword rankings and generating higher levels of organic traffic to the website was important to the success of the project. Therefore, taking a joined up approach with the SEO strategy, on page experience and messaging was critical to ensure that Volition benefited from the full impact of the improved rankings.

The challenge

Noa were ready to step up their marketing efforts and needed a new brand, website and marketing strategy to deliver on their objectives. Their existing recruitment website was dated, clunky and didn’t appeal to their target audience. Our challenge was to evolve their brand and create a high performance website that appealed to their clients and candidates. The website needed to be flexible and able to scale with the business.

View site

The brand

Noa’s previous brand was dated and lacked the flexibility to facilitate a high quality digital design. We evolved the brand identity and introduced new colours, typography, shape and imagery. The new brand was implemented within the new website to create a modern and dynamic interface that uses interactive elements and assets to engage users.

Our design team created branded assets for the website design, making use of multi-layered components that combine dynamic brand elements and imagery to support the user journey.

The website

We delivered a high performance website that is built to be fast, engage users and drive conversions. Our designers curated the website structure in line with a digital strategy created by our marketing team. This approach ensures that the website structure supports the SEO objectives and enables users to intuitively navigate.

Our team developed the website in WordPress to provide maximum content dexterity while ensuring that the brand guidelines are easy for Noa to implement as they continue to produce new pages and content on the website.

2 main audiences

The website is structured to target 2 core audiences: clients and candidates.

Website assets

Our design team created dynamic branded assets that combine stock photography and Noa’s new brand. The outcome is a website design that feels unique and engaging.

Logic Melon Integration

We integrated the website with Logic Melon to pull through Noa’s job posts and track candidate engagement.

Signposting

We colour coded job categories to provide visual cues on job posts.

SEO strategy

As a small recruitment agency with a relatively low competitive position in search engines, Noa needed to be strategic to secure new keyword rankings. We focused on specific job roles and locations to create optimised landing pages that could be found by prospective clients and candidates in search engines. Being specific in this way means that Noa could carve their niche in the market without competing with the huge recruitment agencies with much stronger competitive metrics.

Our strategy provides scope for Noa to continually review their keyword targets and increase their reach as their competitive position grows.

The challenge

The Compass Fostering team recognised that their existing website was holding them back. They challenged us to deliver a new website that was modern, dynamic and interactive. With a huge shortage of foster families, they needed to be found by more prospective families and generate enquiries. The brief was to create a design that is approachable, playful and informative.

Scope
Resource
  • 1 x Website Designer
  • 1 x WordPress Developer
  • 1 x Backend Developer
  • 1 x Quality Assurance Tester
  • 1 x Project Manager
  • 1 x SEO Strategist

Our approach

We used Compass Fostering’s brand to create a fresh website design that our developers coded in WordPress. It provides their marketing team with a flexible platform that they can use to scale their business and support their campaigns.

We introduced a new website structure and intuitive user journeys. Compass have some incredible resources and informational content that was previously buried within the website and rarely accessed by visitors. Our team ensured that content on the new website is accessible and optimised for maximum visibility in search engines.

Our marketing team produced a digital strategy that was pivotal to the success of the website, informing everything from the website structure, design and development, and driving Compass’ overarching goals.

The website

One of Compass Fostering’s greatest challenges was how to deliver a large amount of content to their visitors in a way that was digestible. We achieved this by chunking content and using bold colour blocks from their brand to segment key messages. We use interactive elements to load content in an engaging way that signposts the user journeys.

To deliver the best website, our team evolved the brand to include playful and animated brand elements including underlines, shapes and drawings. We invested time in creating an interaction aesthetic that elevates the design, introducing subtle movement with moving brand shapes in the banners and on hover of call to actions.

We created a calculator to estimate the financial support available to foster families. This tool supports the on-site user experience and is also a fantastic opportunity for Compass Fostering to build reputable links to their website.

The brand

We evolved the existing brand to create an engaging design that looks and feels cohesive.

Informative content

We introduced key information and resources throughout the user journeys to strengthen the user journeys and support prospective foster families.

Application form

We delivered a new application form for Compass Fostering, using UX design to maximise the number of applications

SEO strategy

Compass Fostering had a great opportunity to significantly increase their visibility, enabling more foster families to find them online. Their existing website did a number of things right, but could perform much better with a proper strategy and the implementation of SEO, code and performance best practice.

Our marketing specialists reviewed their position in the market and measured the gap between their current rankings and their potential rankings, then created a digital strategy outlining what needed to be done to close the gap and increase keyword rankings.

They really took the time to understand our needs and requirements, delivering a detailed report on our old website and everything they thought we could improve upon. The time spent understanding our brand really paid off, and the initial wireframe they delivered hit almost every mark. They then took this and delivered a website that exceeded our expectations.

Gabrielle was fantastic throughout the project, and was quick to solve any of the inevitable snags that arise in any web build! Her communication was invaluable throughout and we appreciate all the work she put into this, alongside the wider P&P team.

We’ve already seen an uplift in SEO performance which shows the impact that having a well built website can have.

We’re looking forward to collaborating on more projects with Plug and Play!”

With Grace

A website to support families making funeral arrangements

With Grace is a funeral provider that places people at the heart of their service.

They challenged us to transition them from a traditional funeral care model to offering an online service. They needed a new website to improve their user experience and provide the infrastructure for their digital offering. We overhauled their marketing and digital strategy to increase the effectiveness of their marketing, grow their visibility and enable them to be found online.

The challenge

With Grace came to us with 2 different websites and brands. They recognised that they needed a single website that was easy for their customers to navigate, find information and make funeral arrangements. Their team challenged us to create a unified website that managed multiple user experiences and could be found by their customers in search engines.

As a financially regulated industry, we worked closely with the legal team at With Grace to ensure that the website was compliant with regulation.

  • 1 x UX Designer
  • 1 x WordPress Developer
  • 1 x Quality Assurance Tester
  • 1 x Project Manager
  • 1 x Marketing Director
  • 1 x SEO Strategist

Our approach

Our work would open up a new online service and provide the ability for customers to build funeral packages online. However, it was important that the website remained informative, approachable and empathetic, and didn’t become a pushy sales tool. The digital offering was there to provide ease, transparency, support and space to their customers.

We delivered the website in collaboration with Ascend Studio, who rebranded With Grace and created the final website design. The Plug & Play team delivered the digital strategy, UX wireframe designs, website development and SEO optimisation.

The website

The new website combined the content and user journeys from 2 of With Grace’s websites to create a single high quality website where customers can explore pre-need and at-need funeral packages.

The user journey from the homepage is immediately branched, directing visitors through pre-need or at-need user journeys. Each flow guides the user through key information and packages. Pre-need packages are financially regulated so these user journeys needed extra consideration from a legal perspective to ensure that the user experience was compliant.

The website was delivered using WordPress to provide a flexible and scalable CMS for the With Grace team.

View site

Transparency

Information on the website is transparent, providing clear pricing and inclusions.

Regulation

Some of With Grace’s services are regulated by the FCA and others are not. We worked closely with their legal team to ensure that regulations were met and visitors were notified of regulation where necessary.

Customer demographic

With Grace has a broad customer demographic and it was important that the website was accessible to all ages. We implemented clear user journeys and call to actions to ensure that the website remained simple and easy to use.

The design

Ascend Studio utilised our UX designs to apply the new With Grace brand and create the final visuals for the website.

Interaction aesthetic

The website utilises interactive design elements, load animations and transitions to create depth.

Plan builder

We introduced a new plan builder within the pre-need user journey that enables individuals to create a custom funeral plan that is tailored to their needs.

It was critical that the process remained straightforward and we achieved this with a 3 step user journey. The customer can see the inclusions and costs as they create their plan and when they’re happy with their selections, they can send an enquiry to the With Grace team.

It’s an emotional time for many of With Grace’s customers and it can be overwhelming to enter deep discussions about their funeral arrangements. The goal of the plan builder is to provide autonomy to customers and enable them to explore their options privately before reaching out for help.

Marketing strategy

We provided a part time Marketing Director to With Grace during this period of change, giving them a representative that would advocate for their business and manage their agency relationships.

Together, we created a strategy for their digital ecosystem, including the technology used for various business functions, the website infrastructure, and their digital marketing channels which included SEO, PPC and paid social.

SEO strategy

We delivered an SEO strategy that selected keywords that were used by prospective customers to find With Grace’s services. The website was optimised for the keywords that With Grace had a statistical opportunity to rank for and increase their visibility online.

The strategy was used to guide the website user experience, enabling us to optimise the site to encourage visitors to land on deep and highly relevant content pages. We wanted to make it as straightforward as possible for With Grace’s customers to get the support and information that they needed.

 

Domain migration

Our team assessed With Grace’s digital ecosystem and recommended that their websites were combined into a single website. We reviewed the domains available and advised the best domain for the new website to launch on. The domain selected was new, therefore 2 websites needed to be seamlessly transitioned to the new domain and the domain equity transferred.

Our team managed the domain migration process to mitigate the risks usually associated with domain changes. We ensured that best practice was followed and that the reputation metrics from the old domains transferred seamlessly to the new website, enabling the new website to perform and benefit from the great reputation of the business.

The challenge

Janine Stone came to us frustrated with their existing website. It was a relatively new website but they were struggling with its performance and content management capabilities. Updating and creating content was difficult and they were reliant on support from their developers to make changes. In addition to this, they were losing website traffic because of slow load speeds. On the whole, the website was costing more of their time and money than it should have been.

Their team came to us for advice on what was doable with their site, unsure whether they would need a completely new website or if we could work with their existing code base. Having already invested a lot of money in their new website, they were keen to retain any value from the site that they could. Janine Stone were happy with the website design but needed big improvements elsewhere to get the site working for the business.

Our solution

We rebuilt the backend of the website, implementing best practice secure code. Doing so resolved the majority of Janine Stone’s challenges and delivered a flexible content management system with increased website load speeds and an improved the user experience.

Our approach reused Janine Stone’s website design, offering a rapid and cost effective solution to the problems they were facing.
