eServeWeb was a new startup selling software that tracks business courtesy (food and gift) expenses for the pharmaceutical industry. They needed a Web site fast to attract financing and launch the company.
Action: Worked with the CEO to pinpoint the company's target audience, identify their customers' problems, and demonstrate how eServeWeb software can solve those problems.
Results: A web site that showcased how the company's software could help pharmaceutical companies save time and ensure regulatory compliance. The restaurants got a fast, easy way to build their business, increase exposure, and take orders even when they weren't open.
Global Gateway Communications
Global Gateway had been working on their new product brochure for months. The company's staff were experts on software, but not on marketing. The designer had worked on clothing, but not brochures. It was due to be presented to the company's CEO in 2 weeks, and the Executive Director was frustrated with the slow progress and the poor results. They needed a fresh start (and fast turnaround) in order to meet their deadline.
Two weeks of intense consultation with the director and staff to identify the company's target audience, determine the benefits of using their software, and overhaul the brochure's design.
Results: The new brochure emphasized how the company's security software protected users from hackers, identity theft, and interception of audio/video transmissions. Design changes reduced clutter, made the brochure easier to read, and drew more attention to the product photos, headlines, and benefits. Plus, it was completed on time!
