Before working with The Falcon, Purnell Tyres struggled with brand awareness and getting found by ideal customers. The business also wrestled with other challenges such as:
Steep local and online competition
With costs of everything from staff to marketing drastically rising in recent years, it is no secret that it is exceedingly difficult to catch up to entrenched competitors in competitive marketplaces.
A lack of an online store
Scott and his team were selling online via 3rd party marketplaces, but this was extremely time-consuming to manage and significantly hindered overall profitability. The company identified the competitive edge of having a custom store built into their new website, allowing Purnell Tyres to offer thousands of products and take custom orders all in one spot.
Hours wasted daily going back and forth with customers
Before the new website, the only way for customers to effectively make product or service enquiries was to drive to the store or call the front desk. During busy store periods, this was frustrating for everyone involved. And as the company started to grow, there became a point where answering customer enquiries the old school way limited top-line revenue growth and slowed down the sales process.
Customers unable to research online
Customers were also frustrated that simple questions involving opening hours, inventory availability and service offering details were hard to find. Awareness of other products services the business sold was poor. Apart from selling wheels and tyres, the company also offered wheel repairs, second-hand wheel packages, suspension upgrades, body kits, paint & panel, tinting, exhaust systems, guard rolling and mechanical work.
With so many marketing options readily available, it can be an extremely frustrating and expensive experience for businesses. Purnell Tyres found marketing itself a tedious process and knew there had to be a better way without investing large amounts of money into a paid advertising campaign online. The company produced high-quality content but struggled to get found by search engines and buyers.
Initially, the company improvised its branding and marketing materials to keep marketing costs down. This approach led to inconsistencies with the company's image and created problems attracting high-end customers. The brand no longer matched the quality of the business. And it was clear that Purnell Tyres desperately needed a brand overhaul to compete with online giants in the market and bring down cost-per-acquisition costs.
After identifying key issues hindering overall marketing performance, Purnell Tyres decided to give The Falcon the green light to design and develop a custom website with the goal of increasing service appointments and online sales enquiries. The Falcon also recommended a custom logo and branding package to overhaul the marketing collateral for the business.
