After

This case study details Fusionbox's redesign of the Footers Catering website. Footers, a premier Denver catering and event planning company, needed a website that would function as a sales and lead generation tool.

The original Footers site was not search engine or user friendly. Instead, it was text-heavy, lacking the brochure-like visual appeal required to present the company's professional catering services. Fusionbox worked with Footers to redesign the site, creating a site that showcases Footers professional catering services, culinary excellence, and presentation.

Footers also needed the ability to add and delete text, images, and news, so Fusionbox created a custom content management system (CMS) to give Footers full control of content sitewide.

Finally, Footers had no organic search engine ranking due to bulky HTML code, un-optimized content, and few incoming links. Thus, the company had a very limited online presence. Because the site was not visible for its target keyphrases, traffic levels were not reaching the level Footers needed to generate valuable leads.

So, Fusionbox implemented a search engine optimization (SEO) strategy to increase the visibility of the site within the highly competitive local catering space. When coupled with a fresh, modern design, SEO drew more traffic to the site and visitors stayed longer, interacting with more of Footers content. Things have been different for Footers Catering ever since.

The Challenge

The original Footers Catering website presented several challenges that Fusionbox was able to overcome with a strategy focused on user-centric web design, custom development, and search engine optimization. Footers needed a complete website solution in order to build an online presence and generate leads.

The site suffered from:

  • Outdated Design
  • Insufficient Leads
  • Code and Content Were Not Optimized for Search Engines
  • Lack of Traffic and Visibility For Keyphrases
  • No Content Management System

Upon completion of the project and the implementation of the Fusionbox SEO strategic process, the effectiveness of Footer's website improved dramatically. Soon, the site was generating more leads through increased traffic, visually enticing design, and higher organic search engine positioning.

Your website should be a tool that drives business results unique to your company. Many companies use a shotgun approach and claim results, but at Fusionbox, we know that no two website solutions are the same. What matters to one company may not matter to another, so understanding and collaboration are essential components of our process.

If you aren't utilizing your website effectively to reach customers and create an online presence, you're losing leads and wasting time and money while your competitors gain an advantage.
