Three distinct businesses located in East Auckland have a unique relationship which enables them to offer a full range of employment solutions for warehouse management and logistics: Wright Recruitment, established in 2007 and specialising in temporary and permanent employment, Logistics Plus, specialists in devanning and container loading; and Distribution Ready, offering training courses in warehouse and distribution environments.
Nick Peck, owner of Logistics Plus, came to Touch Marketing with a need for a new website. His existing site was an old-fashioned looking one page site with nothing more than a brief description and contact details. He knew he was overdue for an update and that his site needed to be responsive on mobile devices, provide links to his social networking sites, include a Blog area where he can share his industry knowledge and news, and provide an easy contact form for his clients.
Wright Recruitment, owned and managed by Shelley Wright, also had an existing website but the design was dated and not responsive. Shelley wanted a new website for her business and at the same time, through their business partnership, Shelley and Nick were developing a new business offering courses to support the functions and processes of warehouse and distribution operations. This new business brings together Nick’s expertise in logistics and warehouse management, with Shelley’s in recruitment, to offer new opportunities for candidates to acquire skills and for employers to hire trained staff.
From Nick and Shelley’s perspective, it made sense to consider all three sites at the same time: the sites needed to have their own identity, but all needed to link to each other. From Touch Marketing’s perspective, working on the sites at the same time meant we could consider the styles, images and design together, ensuring the sites were different but complementary. The needs were not complex but good design and responsiveness on mobile devices were key elements.
We offered Nick and Shelley a choice of our Beanstalk website templates, keeping the costs at a very reasonable and affordable level. It was important that the three websites went live around the same time. Careful project management and good communication were needed to keep everything on track.
The three Beanstalk websites went live within days of each other and Nick and Shelley were able to launch their new business, Distribution Ready, with a brand new website in their preferred timeframe.
What we did:
Creation of three new websites, copy editing, purchase of domain for the new business.
