Our primary goal was to convey direclty on the website and blog his vast knowledge of finances in a way that users can easily understand. We did this by developing blog content that was informative and getting the best value out of BSF's content.

On one side, we worked on the creation of a simple, but comprehensive user experience for a really broad set of potential visitors ranging from young people to established experts, to couples on a honeymoon trip trying to get as much bang for their buck before heading to their next destination.
All those customers, with their own very specific needs had to be provided with the right tools to understand, plan, and contact Be Secure Financially.

Moreover, we knew those pages would later be fully CMS manageable, extending the challenge to a whole different scale. Finally, the website and blog display a wide range of smaller and bigger tools to enable any visitor’s needs and questions to be answered.
