Through thorough planning, architecture and design, Venn Digital will create a solution that meets both the needs of you and your customer. Venn Digital works on a .Net platform to ensure the best technology is giving you a robust solution that is easy to work with and will stand the test of time.<br />SEOSearch Engine Optimisation is the practice of modifying your website to ensure the main search engines such as Google and Yahoo can easily find your site. By working closely with you and your business we can ensure that when people are searching for your services, they find you over your competitors. <br />PPCROI is central to any successful business and through a strategic approach to PPC marketing, Venn Digital plan a 12 month campaign for their clients ensuring that budgets and results are central to the agenda.

Therefore it is imperative that we can trace track and monitor the levels of activity on your website. Knowledge is key and with Venn Digital, we give you that knowledge to help deliver those results.<br />Project Outline<br />Below is the project broken down into phases so we can roughly see what we can expect over the term of the project. A full project management document will be created at the beginning of the project.<br />Phase 1 – Full technical scope and project plan to be discussed<br />Phase 2 – Submission of new website wire frame and technical sitemap<br />Phase 3 – Homepage designs and internal page submitted for approval <br />Phase 4 – Commence technical build <br />Phase 5 – Site population and go live <br />Please note that throughout the contract, Venn Digital may advise additional services at extra cost outside of this proposal for the benefit of Execuzen. We will always submit competitive quotes based upon our recommendations and no work will be carried out without your approval.<br />Technology Overview<br />At Venn Digital we build all of our websites as fully Content Managed Systems. With our own in house .Net platform called Evolve we really know our CMS inside out. Unlike other platforms, there are no limitations; we can tailor the system exactly to your needs. We are big believers in making the system as simple as possible giving you the desire the keep your site updated and looking fresh. At the heart of every good website is a great CMS and we are very proud of ours. <br />Equally at the front end, our team of designers take the time to understand your brief and like any good architect, design something that is aesthetically pleasing but delivers a purpose. Meeting W3C compliance standards, search engines and DDA compliance we ensure the design meets and exceeds expectations of all technical bodies.<br />Execuzen will have full rights over all designs, images and content provided on the site at all times. <br />29527505480052286005515615486654552069<br />Project Management<br />We will allocate you one of our experienced Account Managers who will be your main point of contact going forward. At Venn we train all our staff to have the client at the centre of all projects and therefore by being proactive and client facing, we can ensure you start with and continue to have the optimum solution for your needs. <br />We will create a secure online portal where we can share designs and feedback with you. Equally we will create an Account Management document creating very clear lines of communication and ensure nothing is lost in translation – resulting in the very best outcome possible.<br />-913765170815<br />Execuzen – The Brief plus additional ideas……<br />Design an easy to use fully content managed ‘brochure’ website that is clean, informative and professional. The website should reflect Execuzen’s credibility in the market place.<br />To ensure the site represents global reach and does not favor one particular country. Shows a presence in London, Hong Kong, New York, Mumbai and Istanbul<br />Create one page per country detailing the types of roles available and a market overview. You may also want to consider country specific news feeds/ Bloomberg feeds/market updates to show you have your fingers on the pulse in each jurisdiction. A section on movers and shakers could feature here but as we discussed, it is time consuming and will need a lot of attention. You may want to consider this on a quarterly basis. <br />If a quarterly market report is produced then we will ensure circulation is optimised as discussed, using our email marketing software. This will provide the ability to track interest and capture data and will also be able to be downloaded from the site. <br />To create a ‘Contact Us’ call to action that maintains discretion. For example: enter name, contact number, job title and convenient time for a call back<br />Make reference to awards won on the home page to boost credibility and trust<br />Ensure the site is fully content managed by Execuzen and all content can be updated at no extra cost <br />Ensure that the user is a maximum 3 clicks away from being able to contact or engage with Execuzen<br />Make the Execuzen IT website more prominent on the site (to be discussed)<br />Integrate Google Earth to show position of every office in each country (if required)<br />Use imagery that represents the finance sector<br />Consultant biographies are not required however you may want to make reference to one consultant in each country as a point of contact<br />Your New Site (Below)<br />This is a breakdown of how your new website will look once we have rebuilt the site. As you can see, we have stripped it down to make the site clearer, straight to the point and user friendly. Ultimately we are looking to engage the customer and ensure they find their required information as quickly as possible.<br />1091565698500<br />Key Features on the New Site<br />From your brief and our experience we have tried to list below the most effective use of content on the website for you.<br />About Us – This is designed to give a personality and profile to the business. It is aimed at potential clients who want to partner with you, candidates who are looking to be placed by you or candidates who would like to work for Execuzen. This is the ‘shop’ window into your business. <br />Global Reach – We have included a page on each country to accentuate your global reach and also not show preference to any one jurisdiction. The types of roles available in each country/ recently completed mandates can be listed and also a market overview. As discussed, news feeds are an easy way of highlighting your market presence and do not require constant updating. <br />Areas of Expertise – This section is up for discussion as in the current site structure each area has a separate page. It may be more engaging to have just one main page that shows each area of expertise and then when you hover over a particular sector, more information becomes available. <br />Services – This section will mainly target your clients and will cover all aspects of consultancy, research and any other services you wish to highlight <br />Email Marketing – please see this section below as to how email marketing can help circulation of the quarterly market report (if you choose to produce one).<br />Contact Us – Along with integration of Google earth as previously mentioned, you have the option of adding an additional call to action here. This will be a discrete service that allows candidates to enter their details and request a call back at a time that suits them best. Candidates can maintain anonymity initially whilst Execuzen are able to screen the candidates at the same time (job title for example will be a mandatory field).<br />Email Marketing and Report Tracking<br />Email marketing is a key tool that can be utilised to increase market report circulation and distribution. Do not get confused between this solution and standard “email blasting”. <br />Email marketing allows you to segment and target a powerful database of visitors to your site and their website usage, alongside your current database of contacts. By capturing data we can not only see who has engaged in your site but we can now assign the lead to a consultant to follow up. Equally at Director level we can begin to measure ROI from the site to ensure every lead is being tracked and converted. *see example below<br />An additional benefit of email marketing is that it allows you to track the recipients’ behavior once the email has been received. <br />Our system produces real time statistics so you can see the full extent of its effectiveness whilst keeping at the front of clients’ and candidates’ minds. <br /> *Back End module behind the website to track applications and outcomes <br />Applicant NameApplicant DateAssigned ConsultantOutcome John Smith 21/6/11Bob JonesMeeting bookedMark Wright 22/6/11Ian Smith CV Sent Jack Black25/6/11John WhiteMeeting booked<br />Please note that based upon the size of database you want to market to the price will vary. We will quote accurately when we know your exact size of database. <br />Summary <br />This proposal is our initial response to the ideas we discussed in our first meeting.
