It’s May of 2023 and ’tis the season – awards season, that is!
Already, TESSA Marketing + Technology has been bestowed with an impressive triumvirate of honors and recognitions for our creative Digital Marketing and Web Design/Development services, as the Hermes Creative Awards, the Muse Creative Awards, and the Vega Awards have all crowned TESSA with praise for our work on the website CampusWorksInc.com.
The new CampusWorks website, which is part of an overall comprehensive Digital Marketing campaign for TESSA’s Florida-based, national-scope client CampusWorks, was completely redesigned and launched in June of 2022. TESSA’s expert web developers refashioned and rebuilt the site from the ground up, working in close association with our design-and-branding partner Apertures, Inc., and its senior creative director Paul Gormont.
After an extensive judgement period, the CampusWorksInc.com site earned two Golds and a Silver from the three prestigious award-granting organizations.
The Hermes Creative Awards gave TESSA a Gold medal in the Website Overall (Educational Institution) category. We also took home Gold from the Vega Awards in the Website & Mobile Sites category, while the Muse Creative Awards added a Silver to TESSA’s trophy case in the Website (Consulting) category.
The triptych of honors is due to more than CampusWorksInc.com’s captivating imagery, brand-defining design (thanks, Apertures!), and engaging on-site content that speaks directly to CampusWorks’ target market of institutions of higher education. The recognitions by Hermes, Muse, and Vega are also due to the amazing impact the new site has had on generating online leads for CampusWorks.
Thanks to TESSA’s Web Development and Digital Marketing (including vastly improved and completely customized Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques), engagement metrics have shot through the roof since TESSA launched CampusWorks’ new website. Between July 2022 and January 2023, average session duration soared 95% and total sessions went up 91% compared to the previous year. Plus, pages per session increased by 75%, while the bounce rate went down 22%, so website visitors are clicking around more, absorbing key messages more, and choosing to become CampusWorks clients more often.
The new CampusWorksInc.com represents a marked enhancement over the site’s previous iteration. CampusWorks’ current website boasts upgraded graphics and photos, optimized on-page content, simplified navigation, and a significantly improved user experience (UX) with embedded video clips and other multimedia features. In addition, TESSA’s Web Development team strategically positioned highly visible calls-to-action (CTAs) throughout the site, driving more conversions as CampusWorksInc.com visitors become CampusWorks customers.
Working with Apertures, TESSA Marketing + Technology deployed new site text, buttons, frame trim, and icons following a blue/green/orange color scheme – all reinforcing the CampusWorks brand and logo while directing website visitors to the information and solutions they can only get from CampusWorks. The website redesign makes CampusWorksInc.com a true flagship for our client’s brand – and creative award organizations like Hermes, Muse, and Vega have taken notice. We expect more to follow suit as the Creative Design awards season goes on.
