Client: ADVISA

Getting the right B2B web development and design help is essential when your team needs a site to promote your services for developing leaders and creating places where people love to work.

Though the group at ADVISA was happy with its former website’s content and general visual aesthetic, the company had outgrown the functionality of the site. Additionally, its performance limitations posed an obstacle to business growth.

That’s why ADVISA partnered with TBH Creative to revamp its online presence. Keep reading to find out more about this successful web design and development collaboration.

The solution—

TBH Creative’s B2B web development work for ADVISA included:

  • Website planning and site architecture
  • Web design and responsive web development
  • Custom module development for resources and events
  • Website production, redirect planning, training, and quality assurance testing
Launch date: November 2022

TBH Creative chatted about ADVISA’s B2B web development and design project with Lauren Littlefield, director of marketing. Her responses—below—have been condensed for length.

Why did ADVISA need help? Why was this an important project?

Littlefield: We had outgrown the capabilities of our previous site. While we loved the look and feel of what we had, it was no longer conducive to the types of campaigns we wanted to launch in an effort to meet business goals.

Our B2B web development project was nearly two years in the making. It was pushed off because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Once we started working on our competitive advantage and brand story, it became clear our current site wasn’t built to tell our story or convert leads.

With new marketing goals and campaigns in mind, we had to make a change, and what better time than now?

What were some of your challenges?

Littlefield: One of my colleagues introduces herself as someone with a lot of opinions. And, while it sounds funny, it really encapsulates all of us at ADVISA.

Each leader has a unique perspective along with different business goals and objectives. That’s why it’s no surprise that when all of us get into a room together it’s hard to define “where to start” or even what’s next.

We needed a website partner who could outline the B2B web development process and keep our team focused. We needed a partner who could help manage all of our team’s opinions to develop something ADVISA could be proud of.

There are a lot of web design and brand companies in Indianapolis to choose from. Why did you choose TBH Creative as your partner?

Littlefield: When our team first started discussing a new B2B web development project, I immediately included TBH Creative. They made my list of companies to talk to due to a previous work experience with Tatum.

The more we talked, the more I felt like she really understood the challenges ADVISA was facing. She understood our aspirations for a better site. Then, when she introduced us to Katie, Ed, and the rest of the TBH crew, it became apparent they just “got it.”

We didn’t have to spend a lot of time digging into our brand or perceptions. That was important because we wanted to move fast.

What did TBH Creative do to keep the project on track?

Littlefield: I’ve come to really appreciate the weekly updates from TBH Creative. They help me stay on track, push our team to make decisions, submit production-ready website content, and approve work.

I felt extremely looped into the process. That resulted in overwhelming trust by team members who weren’t even been a part of this B2B web development project.

I sound confident about the site, and they feel that.

Would you recommend TBH Creative to other companies looking for professional branding and web design team?

Littlefield: 100%. TBH was forthcoming about deadlines, expectations, and investment—three areas I’ve been burned on in the past.

They consistently wowed us with designs. They even handled back-end technical details that none of our site’s users will ever really see but make the lives of our team easier.

I’m extremely pleased with the work TBH Creative has done and their communication throughout the project. I recommend them to any business looking to take its online presence and brand experience to the next level.

Our new website is amazing. This project was so important to our growth and the outcome exceeded all expectations. It’s literally the best website I’ve ever seen. Thanks to your talented team.
