Generating better leads -

thanks to a revamped brand and powerful website

As Australia’s leading cleaning, maintenance and facility management company, Facilities First has grown rapidly in a short period of time.

The company was evolving into something bigger, which meant their website was no longer in touch with their business. After going through a complete rebrand and restructure, their website needed to follow suit.

That’s where Brilliant Digital came in.

  • Their problem: Out of touch website as the business expanded and rebranded.
  • Our solution: Robust digital strategy that makes their brand and UVP crystal clear.
  • The results: 80% web traffic increase thanks to a strong brand and targeted marketing!

Choosing Brilliant Digital was a no-brainer

Facilities First General Manager Janelle Dixon met Brilliant Digital Founder Deb Croucher at a networking breakfast event, where Deb presented about digital marketing.

“I was impressed from the get-go. It was great timing, and I really enjoyed the storyboard that she presented. While we might not be using the vernacular or the ‘speak’ of marketing, we felt really comfortable with Deb and the extended Brilliant Digital team. They always made us feel like we were a part of their space.

They’ve made it really easy for us to say, ‘This is what we want the website to do, this is how we want it to look, this is what the process needs to be, this is how we want to interact with it,’ and they’ve really understood that scope and they’ve made the vision come to life, which is fabulous.”

What Brilliant Digital delivered for Facilities First

We focused on developing their digital brand through a powerful digital marketing strategy. This ensured brand trust and sustained top line growth, because they are truly connected to their target market.

Glowing feedback and excitement

One of the key features that we incorporated in Facilities First’s website is personal profiles and photos of the team. These profiles have been the single biggest point of joy for Facilities First staff.

“I’m so delighted to see pride in the business. Everyone was really excited to see themselves. Everyone went through the journey piece of building the collateral that went onto the website. We’ve never talked about ourselves in that way; this is very much based on storytelling, so it’s a different approach and it’s been really refreshing.

In addition to that, we’ve had some really lovely feedback from the market, and it’s actually quite unexpected. Recently we had someone from one of our mutual partnerships in the law field write to us, ‘This is really lovely. I don’t get to work with you; however, I feel like I already know your business,’ as a direct response from reading the website.”

The website is now their pride and joy

When Brilliant Digital rebuilt the Facilities First website, the messaging was very clear in identifying who Facilities First is, what they do and for whom.

The new website reflects that from the moment customers land on the first page.

“We really feel that the end product was just at such a high standard. It’s really crisp, really clean, and it’s gone from scope all the way to that delivery piece. It’s been quality all the way.

We value that and we think the Brilliant Digital team has far exceeded our expectations.

We’re really excited to be moving forward with now managing the website and just continually evolving it with the team,” says Janelle.

Facilities First is now owned by international company Serco, and they continue to go from strength to strength.

    Testimonials

    Brilliant Digital has been amazing! They provided a very professional and high-quality service. They understand the niche areas to target when building websites, which has helped make our website a Ferrari with a strong engine, rather than something that looks good but doesn’t bring in the clients. Thank you, Brilliant Digital!

    Accounting For Good has been working with BD since late 2018 – starting with a website refresh and snazzy update to our logo. They’ve curated a solid website with great SEO. I can write, but it’s easy to get distracted and forget to write your content, so outsourcing is such a great option. I *love* our BD content writer – it’s a real partnership. She understands our business and gets the tone I want so spot-on that I think she can actually read my mind.

    Our business website was looking dated and needed a revamp, and we weren’t happy with our current website managers, so we shopped around and were immediately drawn to Brilliant Digital. We set up a meeting and a few weeks later had a great new website, and we’ve had great feedback from clients since about the new look. The website has no doubt drawn new customers to my business and I feel that it has been worth every cent spent.

    But wait there’s more!

    Brilliant Digital has been a fountain of knowledge on all aspects of internet and web marketing and social media, and we’re really grateful for their knowledge and expertise and the huge impact they have had on our business.

    My website has been critical to my success. It is literally the face of my business… it’s the shop window.

    I can’t recommend Brilliant Digital highly enough. It is the only company that has taken the time to gain a deep understanding of me, my business, what I want to achieve and where I want to go with it.

    Our website was up and running in six weeks as promised. I couldn’t believe it, actually. Our first website was such a long, tortuous process.

    Brilliant Digital has done everything they said they would do. We’ve never had a problem, even with all the increased traffic from the new marketing campaigns. We’ve been very happy!

    We are a very busy medical practice that recently engaged Brilliant Digital to develop our website and online presence.

    Straight away we realised we had found someone with invaluable marketing experience, who explained in plain speaking the pitfalls and advantages of the online world.

    This allowed us to get on with the more important issue of running our practice.

    We have received lots of positive feedback regarding our website and mobile site from many of our patients.

    When we came to Brilliant Digital, the selling point for us was the strategy. It wasn’t just about building a website; it was about having a philosophy.
