Based on our recent discussions and our research, [CompanyName] has identified the following areas that need to be addressed by [ClientName]:
3.1 Brand Recognition
Our research shows that [ClientName] is presently lacking in brand recognition with potential customers across the whole range of its products and services. While some potential customers were aware of the products and services offered by [ClientName], they were not able to link them with the brand. [CompanyName] can assist [ClientName] in developing brand recognition and brand association with its products and services. The Website that will be developed for [ClientName] will reflect a tight cohesion between its products and services and the brand. As part of this process, [CompanyName] can also assist by developing a strong brand image for [ClientName]. In addition, the Website will reflect [ClientName]’s personality which is part of its vision and mission.

Not all the repeat visits will result in immediate sales, but they will keep customers connected with the [ClientName].
The engagement with customers will come partly through the design of the Website and partly through the quality of the content. Essentially, [ClientName]will need to give users a reason to return to the Website. Designs developed by [CompanyName] are very easy to use and are a joy to navigate for users. This will contribute significantly to positive user experience. If this can be coupled with unique and high quality content presented in an engaging manner, [ClientName]will have a winning proposition.
