The Challenge

Clear Search came to us by referral from LinkedIn. They already had a DIY website in place that was built using WiX.

While can be useful in the short term, these types of sites make it very hard for you to look both professional and unique.

The business was about to embark on a growth phase and needed a website that would better reflect them in the marketplace as well as help them to attract new talent.

Of particular importance to the client was the ability to have the site integrated with their social media accounts (Twitter & LinkedIn) while allowing them a platform to communicate to their market from (a blog) that would divert traffic towards their site instead of away to other sites that had useful articles.

The website was also not optimised for smartphones or tablets and as such would create a poor user experience as mobile adoption was increasingly rapidly at the time.

Finally, the client needed to be able to display their available job opportunities and candidate resources without having anything in place already.


The Process

After working with the client to identify the key requirements to position themselves in the market correctly, we identified that client logos, testimonials & social media integration would be key parts to the design of the website.

We then chose a framework that would allow them to continue to manage the site content internally such as adding new staff, testimonials, and blog articles.

We also mapped out the key requirements for their job board, such as recruitment consultant, salary ranges, industry sectors, etc

Finally we identified the type of feeling & impression we needed to create to match both the clients vision for the brand and that would appropriately communicate with their target clients & candidates.

We then proceeded with our 20-to-1 design phase to select between a number of great design concepts and ultimately arrived at the one that matched the brand personality.

After completing the remaining page designs with the designer we gathered all of the required content, staff details, testimonials, and starting blog copy before moving on to begin development.

During this period we also migrated the client across to Google Apps for Work. This required the WiX site to be stripped and rebuilt into standard HTML and moved to a new host (WiX will not allow you to have Google Apps unless you buy it from them which creates a double dependency on that vendor).

The development team complete the core build and the client then proceeded to manage their own content uploading.

Once this was completed, we ran the site through our rigorous testing phase that ensures the site is fully compliant with industry standards, operates with maximum speed as preferred by Google, and finally a heavy security lockdown to protect against hacking and malicious bots.

This is the second time I've used Simon to help with my company website design and development. In the recruiting industry we rely heavily on our website and database to operate and attract new candidates, so I was very happy to see the results were exactly we wanted, even better than I expected. Digital Phenix offered suggestions along the way to stop things from becoming problems both now and into the future. They've given us an incredibly creative solution for me to run my business more easily. Will definitely be using them again.

Their vision imediately aligned with the outcomes i needed to achieve and I received professional insights and easy to understand guidance through the whole process. (even the Techie stuff). The result was a cutting edged web site developed using the latest up to date techniques and by integrating my social media with the web site they created a one stop shop of information and interaction for my business. Thank you for making the whole experience so easy!

We've redesigned our website three times and the most recent time we chose Digital Phenix. This experience was the best experience we have had with the development of our new website. Simon was attentive at every point, helpful with suggestions and strategies for the site as well as having a simple and effective approach to design that makes it very user friendly and responsive. We will continue to work with Simon for our next website too

The Solution

Clear Search now have a brand new website that works across any device to allow a great user experience for their clients & candidates.

They now have a job board which they are able to use to attract more talent to the company as well as illustrate to potential new clients the range of roles they recruit for.

As their team grows their staff are now able to be showcased.

The website streams their twitter updates in real time and offer multiple points directing visitors to engage with them through LinkedIn.

Their site is now optimized for SEO, and have Google ranking them number 1 with an enhanced listing, despite having a company name which can be diluted in search results.

With the new blog area, they are now able to direct their social media followings back to their own website to view interesting content and industry news, rather than posting content from other websites.
