Over the last 12 years. A.D. Hennick and Associates has built the capital and buyer relationships it needs to thrive. They're an energetic team of liquidation experts, developing innovative client solutions to excess inventory and distressed asset issues, while protecting brands and maximizing value as quickly as possible. No wonder they made Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies in 2020. Their mission is to assist manufacturers, distributors, and bankruptcy trustees in buying and selling large quantities of excess inventory, cancelled orders, and distressed assets. As a wholesale and distribution partner, A.D. Hennick has a high level of dedication to customer satisfaction, and has an unwavering commitment to honesty, integrity, and unsurpassed client service.
A.D. Hennick and Associates was in need of an updated website that would increase interest, confidence, and the approachability of the company. They were also interested in consulting with Cheeky Monkey to develop informed content and increase their LinkedIn and Facebook presence as part of their overall online strategy.
Many of the businesses that require A.D. Hennick’s services have never had to reach out for assistance before, and do not know how to find the right help. Cheeky Monkey Media needed to figure out the most effective way to increase not just traffic, and interest for A.D. Hennick, but understanding and discoverability of their services as well.
The website structure is not complex and is fairly minimal in terms of total number of pages. However, it still needs to provide users with information on the different services available.
In order to achieve A.D. Hennick’s goals, additional pages were added to the site structure. These included:
- Consulting Services
- Resources - The parent for the News & FAQ pages, and has any additional links or information that could be helpful to clients
- News - Expansion of this page includes blog items so that A.D. Hennick can speak directly to their audience and keep them up-to-date about current liquidations
The other structural changes we made were a persistent footer form and the addition of CTAs across the site to help guide visitors through the site flow. The end goal of the website flow is to contact the A.D. Hennick’s team.
Stylistically, the site needed a facelift. Using a WordPress template, we went for a high contrast, modern look that would convey professionalism and trustworthiness. We built upon their brand colours by adding a Prussian Blue to the site. The color blue can be associated with intelligence, reliability, and trust. A.D. Hennick’s visitors will know that they have found a reputable source of information and assistance.
To increase exposure through both SEO and LinkedIn the Cheeky Monkey team looked at Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, and other analytics tools to review specific interactions, long-term trends, overall traffic, and bounce rate. From this data recommendations were made for testing to determine what options would have the most positive effect for the client. A continuous website enhancement roadmap was developed based on the findings.
