Strategy

All forms of marketing and website creation require strategy, but with so many campaigns flooding the web, a digital branding strategy requires an extra dose of savvy. That’s why we research and analyse every aspect of your brand before brainstorming solutions, making sure we know exactly what you want and how to make it happen.

User Experience (UX) Design

The key to good web design lies in the ability to craft positive user experiences. Our designers are specially trained to create exceptional UX by tailoring design elements such as information architecture, content strategy, visual design, interactivity and usability to the target user’s wants and needs.

Web Design

We base all of our graphic, interface and user experience design principles on evidence-based studies of the way web users tend to think and act. Consequently, our work invariably features smart designs that accommodate users’ demand for simple, attractive, efficient, credible and engaging online experiences.

Responsive Design

Smartphones are outselling desktop computers four to one, urging brands to adopt a mobile presence or risk losing masses of potential customers. Using responsive design principles, we offer a simple, cost-effective solution to this dilemma by developing one adaptable site that seamlessly translates across all platforms.

Interactive Design

Given the online standard of immediate gratification, it is important to communicate with users in ways other than bombarding them with information. We therefore engage users in the communicative process with design elements like search bars, collapsible menus, sliders, photo galleries, parallax scrolling and the like.

The CMS is very customisable, user friendly and well suited to large sites. The fact that it is a 3rd party CMS with extensive documentation means sites are easily maintainable by other parties if required, resulting in no long term lock in to our company.

Digital Advertising

As an ever-increasing number of consumers are engaging online, it is absolutely imperative for brands to allocate a significant percentage of advertising budget to digital media. Whether your campaign calls for banners, pay-per-click advertising, affiliate marketing, social media advertising or the like, Lima Bean’s team of experts are proud to offer their services.

E-mail Marketing

E-mail marketing engages consumers in a personalised, yet non-invasive way through subscriptions to newsletters and promotional material. This marketing strategy favours the quality of a message over the quantity of its readers, building lasting, mutually beneficial relationships with prospective and established clients.

Analytics and Insight

You can’t manage what you don’t measure. Thus it is important to accurately collect and analyse interactions between your customers and your website and other digital engagements. Lima Bean will use this information to improve your current interactions with customers and enhance your digital branding strategies.

Social Media Marketing

Who isn’t on Facebook, Twitter or Google+? As the number one reason for Internet users to go online, social networking is arguably the easiest, cheapest, and most accessible form of marketing available.

Content Marketing

When it comes to digital, valuable and informative content is key to attracting and retaining customers.

We are able to assist clients in developing a content marketing strategy that delivers real value to customers and leads to increased conversions.
