The Approach

The goal was to take a holistic look at multiple touchpoints of the brand and come up with a strategy and design that helps increase the conversion rate. Team Imaginea speaks highly of content power to achieve marketing goals. Thus our work began with analyzing WaveMaker’s website content presentation, which was found to be obfuscating, inconsistent & mainly technical; failing to address to the target audience. It was imperative to understand what influences audience needs/actions & come up with a strategy that builds holistic experience across micro-moments. To make the brand talk of the business value, adapt to the tone, style & type of content with changing business personas; helped drive the change.

The Creation of Personas

Diving into branding process without knowing exactly who the buyers are, & what influences their motives, wouldn’t make sense. So we explored, identified & created, who these people are, what they value. After a comprehensive study of social media research, site analytics these personas took shape. It came to our surprise that our client’s product had not one, but, three buyers. And we categorized them as CXOs, Influencers & Developers. To create more compelling content that will engage these ideal customers, was the objective.

They are incredibly impatient as their schedules are jam-packed & they have to make a lot of high stakes decisions. And with whatever little time in our hands, it was to be made sure that the website & product spoke of the high-value impact it would make to the business.

Influencers

They’re capable of influencing the decision-making process to a great extent and had to be conveyed about the high-level features of the product. We took the chance to establish primary offerings of the product; to not just influence awareness but drive action.
