Engaging with Specifications, Possibilities and Case Studies

Your clients may be smart, but this doesn’t mean they’ll draw a clear line between your products and services and the outcome they hope to achieve. This puts the burden on you to show the value of your offerings while providing sufficient specifications for engineers, researchers, physicians and technically-minded buyers. Case studies, industry pages, and persona-driven content, and well thought-out product databases are some of the building blocks to being found online, and convincing multiple layers of decision-makers that you have the expertise to solve their unique challenges. Many technical buyers are averse to typical B2C marketing tactics, so it takes a nuanced strategy to attract, engage, and convert the the members of your highly specific audiences into quality leads.

MMPA worked with Windmill Strategy (formerly Windmill Design) on a refresh of our logo and a much-needed redesign of our website. As our organization has continued to evolve, the Windmill team helped guide our strategy to engage our audience more deeply. We love the new logo; the website better connects members to our content; navigation is user-friendly, and we're more easily discovered online. Windmill was great to work with, and they took the time to understand what we needed.

Our experience with Windmill has shown them to be highly competent, responsive, professional, polite and most of all effective. They were tasked with designing and implementing a website with more technical requirements than most and I am very satisfied with their results. Highly recommended!

I was tasked at my job to find a website design team to give us a complete new makeover. We are an Engineering/Manufacturing company with 4 sister companies. I interviewed several different companies but as soon as I spoke with Kathy, I knew I had found the right folks for the job! Because we are a specialized engineering/manufacturing company, not everyone knows how our products work. Marketing a restaurant or selling t-shirts is easy. Specialized products, not so much. Unlike other companies, Windmill provided us with a report at the initial quoting phase with statistics and comparisons of our competitors in our industry. We were completely blown away at their attention to detail and it's carried over from beginning to the end. We've just launched our website a few days ago and there's no way we would've been as successful if we hadn't hired them. Note: I was advised by many to look for a local marketing firm since we're based in Rhode Island and Windmill is based in Minnesota. I can say that hiring local really doesn't matter and you shouldn't be worried if you've found a trusted source like Windmill Strategy. The online meetings has been absolutely great. They have great tools that make it easy to input your information that helps keep everything organized. Jackson was our project manager and helped us to stay on top of the schedule and sent friendly reminders and scheduled regular phone call updates. Jen is the queen of design and she is very good at capturing what you describe on paper. Matt is their copywriter and he was able to capture of essence, tone and vibe we wanted on our site to the T.If you're looking for a website design and strategy company to increase your traffic flow while updating your company's brand or starting from scratch, let Windmill Strategy handle it for you. You'll be soooo glad you did! Cindy DejesusPrimary Flow Signal, Inc.
"We enjoyed working with everyone at Windmill and appreciated that there was a team of people to bounce ideas off of. They were accommodating and willing to meet in our space and theirs as well as conference calls to plan the details with our website. To this day, if we have questions, they’re always there to help. Windmill has boosted our confidence when telling people to “Check out our website!” and we feel proud to show it off. Thank you, Windmill Strategy Team, for your efforts in making our website user friendly and attractive to the eye. We’ve had many compliments on our website!"
Dan SchultzVice President at Watson-Forsberg

Windmill Strategy has the expertise to translate technical jargon into a compelling story that reaches and engages the right people.

Custom products and solutions require a balance of specifications and possibilities to provide confidence that you can solve the prospect’s unique problem. Your specifications need to be translated into language that solves the user’s problem, and provides them enough information that they are convinced that you’re the expert. Technical buyers won’t call or fill out your inquiry form until they’re convinced that the person on the other end is the expert who can solve their problem better than they can. If your website doesn’t have enough detailed information and specifications online for them to be convinced of that, they’ll move on to the next site that does.

With technical and niche offerings, you’re not trying to get every person in the world to come to your site, but are looking for a highly specific audience. You want your website to be a place to start client relationships, with the right people. To achieve that goal you need marketing campaigns and a website that engages and attracts your target audiences at various stages in the funnel, and marketing automation to help harness and nurture new leads. Our services range from website design and development to digital marketing and sales enablement, to ensure that all of your systems are working together to make your website the most valuable component of your marketing.
