Website Design and Development

Sun Bandit's biggest challenge was getting people to use a website that was full of content but said very little (by saying way too much). People were leaving the website confused and not placing orders because they didn't know how to buy. Spending thousands of dollars on a website that wasn't working was very frustrating, and it was time for a change.

Simpler is better. By making the main call to action on the homepage "How To Buy" it is very easy for people to find out. Psst–I've got a secret to share–if you click the screenshot below you can see how easy it is.

Working with a network of channel partners is an important part of Sun Bandit's growth strategy. Making it easy to set up credit terms helps the onboarding process go more smoothly.

To accomplish this, a credit application form was built into the site. When filled out and sent, a completed PDF file–matching Sun Bandit's branding of course–is emailed to the applicant and also to Sun Bandit's administration. This not only makes applying easy for new partners, but also saves Sun Bandit® a great deal of paperwork time.

Marketing

The next step in Sun Bandit's plan was to improve the overall efficiency of their sales and marketing programs, and track related expenses accurately.

Sun Bandit® wanted their CRM, email marketing, and accounting software to be connected. Even though all three are from the same software vendor, limitations were keeping them from working together like they wanted.

With a dash of ingenuity, past experience, and time spent working through issues with the software's technical support team, a solution was found.

Now, their email marketing software is integrated with the CRM, and sales and marketing activities are tied to purchases automatically. We take care of the technical stuff, and they keep track of everything within their accounting software.

Another problem they were facing was working with so many middleman vendors. Digital marketing was being handled by one agency. Email services were being handled by a different agency. The website hosting was on a server that was being managed by yet another agency. To make it worse, costly monthly add-ons were required by each of them.

After taking an unbiased look at the vendors they had accounts with, we were able to help them become more self sufficient while retaining the services that bring value. By working with us for their marketing, website, and email services, they have trimmed thousands of dollars each month from their expenses.

This really has been a year of transformation for Sun Bandit®. We are so excited to see what the future has in store for them and the change they are bringing to the world.
