Before and After

Aries Systems needed a sophisticated and modern website that would provide a rich and user-friendly experience for publishers, authors, and editors alike. The site features a video library, custom icons, and infographics that illustrate the software’s workflows, a quick-search Journals List tool for editors, and a wide variety of page layouts. We’ve continued to support Aries with agile and iterative improvements to their website over time, based on data and internal business needs.

After

I’ve worked with Windmill on several different projects for various organizations and each time I have been impressed with their project management skills. They are easy (and enjoyable) to work with, while always keeping us on track and on task. And what’s more, the end result has been a beautiful, intuitive and well designed product.

Wow! The publication is just beautiful! This modern look & feel will have far-reaching appeal to our members and, we hope, to non-members and those interested in joining CSE. I guarantee that our snazzy new site is going to make my job of recruiting articles much easier. Authors will be thrilled to see their names in lights! With many thanks for our partnership. It’s been great working together.

The Windmill team has been an excellent resource and support to our marketing team in helping manage and optimize our PPC efforts to our US audience. Specifically, Julie has been a consistent advocate to our account and always comes to the table with great ideas and is another resource to brainstorm and bounce ideas off. She's a voice of reason in our alignment meetings and I am confident that she'll continue to move forward on improving the account even when we focus on other priorities internally.

I have been working with Windmill Strategy for just over 1 year now and I couldn't be more happy that I started this business relationship. Our company, Murphy Rigging, had Derick with Windmill refresh our entire website which came out great. I work with Windmill month after month now improving SEO, content and blogs for our business and in the short time since our site launch, we are seeing an increase in business. I am excited to keep working with Windmill in the future to keep up relevant on Google analytics and SEO as in this day in age, I feel this is the #1 way to bring in new business.

I worked with Windmill Strategy to redesign Path Robotics' website.Our old website had a 90%+ bounce rate, the average time spent on site was around 30 seconds and our MQL conversion rates were below the industry average.Windmill's team of experts worked with me to put together a lead-gen-focused plan and executed it with professionalism.After we launched the website, our bounce rate fell to around 75%, average time on site increased to over a minute and MQL conversions are on the rise.I would, without hesitation, work with Windmill again on future projects.

I would highly recommend Windmill Strategy for website development and search engine optimization. Their expertise, responsiveness, and skills surpassed our expectations.
Their responsiveness is great. Our last IT consultant definitely worked on his own time, but Windmill isn’t like that. I only have to ask them once to do something, they get it done right away, and if they need more than one person working on it, they make it happen. I never have to worry about something slipping through the cracks. They’re very reliable.

Engaging Multiple Audiences in Unique Buying Cycles and Managing Internal Stakeholders

Like nearly all of our clients, you aren’t targeting the typical consumer, requiring unique messaging and conversion paths. Influencers (instructors selecting a book for their curriculum) may be the key marketing persona, while the actual purchaser is the student. Authors may be the primary audience for journals, while librarians make buying decisions and drive revenue. Nuanced attention to personas, ideal customer profiles, and buying cycles make the difference in creating a successful online presence.

We’re familiar with processes involving boards and multiple stakeholders. We’ll work closely with your leaders, editorial staff, or marketing managers, using our tried-and-true processes for managing projects efficiently while gaining consensus from large boards and memberships.

How Can We Help You succeed?

Thank you so much for all your help! It is really exciting to see everything come together. It is very satisfying to see where we were at the beginning and what we have achieved during the process.
