What The Client Said
“We’ve worked together for less than a year but I truly feel that Surge Marketing understand our business better than any other company we have used in the past 5 years who feel more like a partner than a supplier.”
Evolution wanted to update their website and create another two sites as part of their expansion. They had been quoted an extortionate price by their existing provider even though two of the websites were going to be visually the same, just with different content. The third is an online training website that trains company workers how to pack dangerous goods. Their current provider’s level of service had dropped – that combined with high quotes encouraged Evolution to further engage with Surge as we had already been tasked to create a marketing strategy.
We had already created a marketing plan for Evolution so we had a clear idea of their business and their objectives moving forward. We created the first site, taking into account relevant call to actions throughout the whole site. Evolution have a mixture of written and video testimonials so we created a testimonial page with video capability. We duplicated the entire site so that it could be used again for the second website. This took half the time and therefore required half the investment. The third site is complete and now awaiting the training courses to be added.
Throughout various meetings it came to light that Evolution have an extremely complicated quoting process to follow as there are thousands of goods they can ship and each has their own set of rules as to what they can be shipped with and in what volume. We were confident that we could build a system that would be able to provide a quote in seconds, saving Evolution huge amounts of time when quoting and capturing potential clients’ details along the way. Two months later, we created a bespoke quoting system that does exactly that and has put them years ahead of their compeition! View quoting system
