Sharp Corporation of NZ

Website development for the effortless flow of information

The Challenge

Given a decision by Sharp Australia to rebuild their independent website, Sharp NZ were required to redevelop a New Zealand version.

With the understanding that Sharp’s historical brand recognition deserved to be continued with modern users in mind, Engage rose to the challenge to give the website some much needed TLC.

About This Project

  • 01 Responsive Website Design
  • 02 UI/UX Design
  • 03 Website Development
Sharp NZ
Our Approach

For this project, we’ve recreated the existing website on a new framework to provide Sharp an editable marketing platform. Much of the content remained the same, but we upgraded the design and layout to reflect a style that will be relevant for the coming 3-4 years.

This project doesn’t include a wholesale change to Sharp advertising/promotional graphics but the approach of applying a fresh layout and typography influences an update to the Sharp look.

We also included a new CMS more user-friendly platform – in terms of updates and providing seamless flexibility to the user for marketing purposes, removing many unnecessary steps currently being taken by internal CMS users.

Sharp NZ
Results

The redevelopment brings about a number of positives, reducing website downtime and tailoring the site to New Zealand sales and marketing requirements.

The launch was met with a phenomenal response, bringing the website bounce rate down by 64% and increasing the average pages per session to 32.50%. This shows that people are engaged more than before, finding exactly what they need seamlessly.

Rheem New Zealand

Rheem NZ delivers crucial product information to trade

The Challenge

The Rheem brand is an iconic one. Apart of the worldwide Rheem family, Rheem New Zealand continues to remain at the forefront of manufacturing techniques in and for the New Zealand market.

As the website development partner for Rheem New Zealand, we’ve helped this iconic brand upgrade their website for the growing needs of their wholesale and retail merchants, plumbers, product specifiers and consumers.

About This Project

  • 01 Responsive Website Design
  • 02 UI/UX Design
  • 03 Website Development
Rheem
Our Approach

We proposed a structured, creatively designed and professional written website that will better position the Rheem brand and drive response, enquiries and sales.

Our approach included Responsive Design that works equally as strong on desktop and mobile, alongside including improvements to design, navigation, and trade information.

While the end result is a website that’s easy to navigate, no matter the stakeholder group you belong to, the project belies a complex database structure delivering tailored information to each group. Of utmost importance to the Rheem marketing team was a website asset that they could effectively manage internally.

We delivered that through a bespoke Silverstripe Content Management System that gave our developers the control and flexibility to craft a product category structure that could handle specific attribute sets and multiple resources.

Rheem NZ
Results

The complex product-database structure ultimately allowed for relatively easy deployment of many other features including Product Comparison, Product Selectors and Warranty Claim automation.

Coming up Roses for Wild Poppies

The Challenge

Taking over from a previous respected digital media agency is always a little nerve racking but seeing glaring holes in their online advertising and Google AdWords Strategy we took up the challenge to promise “more business for your business” at Wild Poppies.

About This Project

  • 01 Responsive Website Design
  • 02 UI/UX Design
  • 03 Website Development
Our Approach

With the stunning imagery provided by the florist, Engage designed a website that exposed all the beautiful gifts and blooms Wild Poppies offers.

Our approach conducted thorough keyword and competitor research to build out new intelligent AdWords campaigns highlighting the selling points of Wild Poppies and attract new customers.

For us, the website navigation was of utmost importance for this project. When it comes to the customer journey, it should be simple and easy for a user to understand and purchase. Our design team worked hard to build a user-friendly system that enabled customers to purchase blooms with simplicity and ease.

The objective was to help shoppers get to what they want faster and without running into unnecessary complexity that can clog up the path to purchase.

Results

Building on this success we’ve jointly developed an ongoing marketing plan, rich with inventive steps that concentrate on growing traffic from more and more sources, engaging and nurturing prospects, rewarding loyal customers with reward points, and ever-improving conversion rates at all points of the buyer’s journey.

For us, it’s a fluid marketing plan of continual improvement, where KPIs are monitored weekly so that, as resources allow, current promotional tactics are optimised and new avenues are explored.

GDM Retail System

The Challenge

Working closely with project developers and clients, GDM designs and builds customised innovative displays, fixtures and furniture for Super Stores & Specialty Retail, Hotel & Commercial.

At GDM, the work is made to transform ideas and designs into reality.

With their line-up of amazing services ready to be shared in the digital land, Engage took on the challenge to create a compelling site that ensured GDM positioned its brand, credibility, and information to further improve their business.

About This Project

  • 01 Responsive Website Design
  • 02 UI/UX Design
  • 03 Website Development
Our Approach

Being an award-winning designer and manufacturer B2B Business, it’s important to maintain strong relationships with key clients and develop relationships with new prospects. We put into consideration the types of users who would be using the site creating an approach that ensured the website worked as equally smooth on all devices.

When you make it easier for users to see parts of your site most relevant to them, it’s likely to increase their chances of having a good user experience and continuing their relationship with your brand. For that reason, an emphasis was put on the positioning of GDM’s bespoke project portfolio.

Results

The result was a functional clean design, providing valuable content, case studies, and company information. GDM’s work was transformed into reality with a high-quality video display on the home landing page to highlight their craftsmanship and bring their design to life. Special attention was given to Responsive Design layout given the percentage of visitors using mobile.

Since coming on board with Engage Digital, there has been a steady 25% increase in organic visitors finding their way each month to the GDM website. The website has been receiving over 1000+ unique visitors and has seen a 30% decrease in the average bounce rate in comparison to 2019. It’s a win-win!

Sudburys providing more proactive advice for their clients

The Challenge

The challenge with many service businesses is to take the conversation from being “about us” to a true customer-centric position – Sudbury’s listened.

On the surface, professional service websites can be boring and repetitive, with little room for differentiation. We took on the challenge to write, design and develop the Sudbury’s website.

About This Project

  • 01 Responsive Website Design
  • 02 UI/UX Design
  • 03 Website Development
sud-mac-mock
Our Approach

With the stakeholders fully supportive of the move to talk about their customers and the outcomes they wanted from their accounting and financial advisory firm, rather than the “this is what we do and how we do it” rhetoric normally pushed by professional service websites our approach was aimed at changing the way customers would recognise the dedicated team.

As opposed to over-complicating things and losing potential users, our approach entailed simplicity, ensuring that the website clearly encapsulated the company’s skills.

sud-iphone-mock
Results

The result was a radical departure from the old, into a contemporary website design that graphically displays that Sudbury’s are leading edge within their industry.

While covering the services that Sudbury’s provide, the site talks in end-customer terms, demonstrating the benefits they can get from working with Sudburys. The Blog and Case Study setup allows the business to add more and more evidence of their results-orientated customer focus.

BRAND CREATIVE PLATFORM

NZ Breakers rally members behind their team

The Challenge

As the design agency for the New Zealand Breakers we were called to design components to attract sponsors, corporate memberships, and returning and new members. Our collateral had to sell the amazing energy and spectacle that is the NZ Breakers.

About This Project

  • 01 Responsive Website Design
  • 02 UI/UX Design
  • 03 Website Development
NZ Breakers
Our Approach

We had to underpin all the fantastic benefits our stakeholders get when joining the wonderful NZ Breakers community.  All along with an eye on the goal of ultimately increasing ticket sales to their action-packed home games, we took an approach of including creative campaigns and brochures.

The brochure had to sell the benefits of the entertainment and energy of the breakers brand, so our design team got creative to include point-of-scale graphics, and functional aspects outlining the specifications and pricing behind the sponsorship offers.

The dynamic design, rich imagery, and bold text on the headlines was an approach that ensured viewers would immediately be captivated by the Breakers offering.

NZ Breakers
Results

We listened carefully to the brand and through applying logic, simplicity, and intelligence the results have been phenomenal.

As a result, the breakers had a 39% increase in memberships and subscriptions in just over 4 short months. The brand has been recognised by over 1 million people and the weekly page views are up by 65%. The business is thriving!

NZCU Auckland ups the digital ante to generate loan applications

The Challenge

There was a time when credit unions might be considered old-school – not anymore. NZCU Auckland knew it was time to break the mould for the way their website design positioned them in the market. NZCU challenged Engage to position them more in tune with their banking and personal loan markets. 

About This Project

  • 01 Responsive Website Design
  • 02 UI/UX Design
  • 03 Website Development
Our Approach

Our approach was a fully copy rewrite that explained what was in it for the customer rather than talking about only the “us”.

Alongside Image-rich design that is warm and friendly while in keeping with NZCU’s binding brand identity, a heavy focus was put on crafting interactive tools and lead-gen forms to contact NZCU.

A heavy focus was put on Responsive Design to improve conversion from our large mobile-only market.

NZCU Auckland
NZCU Auckland
Results

Fully reworked Loan Application forms removed any roadblocks and reduced abandonment form applications improving NZCU’s bounce rate by a staggering 58%.

With a mission to build Responsive Design, conversions rose significantly from our large mobile-only market. The new interactive and responsive website is just the beginning. NZCU regonise it as their base asset for measuring and improving KPIS from all their off-line and digital marketing efforts. 

It’s permitting them to improve AdWords effectiveness, drive conversion-optimisation through better form management and layering on Marketing Automation campaigns that nurture prospects and convert customers.

Plan B ups the digital ante to generate leads​

The Challenge

Plan B became New Zealand’s most recognised business continuity specialist because they invested in technology and provided innovative solutions and workflows.

Plan B came to Engage to take that professional, contemporary positioning through to their website. Their previous website was showing its age and wasn’t providing the leads expected from their inbound marketing.

About This Project

  • 01 Responsive Website Design
  • 02 UI/UX Design
  • 03 Website Development
PlanB
Our Approach

Our approach was to design a website that reflected Plan B’s professional brand positioning and make them stand out from the others in the notoriously competitive industry.

We needed to make a website that is easy to understand by everyone.

We clarified their Value Proposition to a medium to large enterprise business market, amplified their product and service offering through news, case studies and testimonials, and future-proofed the site for further layering of features including lead generation and marketing automation.

PlanB
Results

We delivered all that and more – the Plan B website was developed using Craft CMS to provide a user-friendly CMS. Craft was built to be exceptionably scalable, to the point that even its own feature set can adapt to the scope of the project.

Our programmer ensured that the front-end and back-end code was pristine, ensuring that customers had good user experience is crucial to generate leads driving customers through the funnel and without any loss of function or experience.

The end result is a fast loading modern website optimised for search and ready for generating leads and building more business for Plan B.
