MacRoberts ethos centres on collaborative relationships and connections across a wide sector range. And when Radiator was selected as MacRoberts’ Digital Partner, it was essential to lean on a combination of this people-focussed approach and the heritage of the brand.
MacRoberts' open and personable brand values are evident throughout the site:
- Key service contacts
- Insights and opinions at the heart of the site
- Specific expertise highlights
- BIG portraits supporting the layout throughout
Central to our approach was the prioritising and rationalising of key user journeys and calls to actions (CTAs).
The slick Service & People lookup are essential events on this site, with filters and search tools offering multiple routes to the same result for users.
- MacRoberts’ complex service offerings were made interactive and straightforward to help users quickly find what they need.
- Key CTAs are localised to their context and held on-screen as long as they are relevant to boost conversions.
In exploring how elements of the user experience could echo the clear and precise advice clients receive from MacRoberts, we implemented the following techniques:
- Liberal use of whitespace
- Typography-led design
- Big, clear titles
- Traditional text effects and layouts:
- Drop caps
- Colour used only functionally as sector colour coding
Insights and opinion pieces further support brand values of being knowledgeable, informative and accessible while also boosting MacRoberts' natural ranking opportunities through the regular supply of search optimised content.
MacRoberts is taking advantage of our integrated approach with our Digital Marketing team responsible for building the brand’s online authority, exposure & leads through a range of online tactics including SEO, paid advertising & social media.
