Cookies. Cookies are small data files sent by a website and stored on the computer or device at the request of that site. Cookies store information related to a user’s browser to enable us to recognize the browser on return visits to our Website and to remember your preferences.

Pixel tags. A pixel tag (also referred to as a “clear gif” or “web beacon”) allows us to track the online usage patterns of the Website and to understand which links are clicked, or when you open emails that we may send to you. We use this information to help us improve the Website and our communications.

HTML5 Storage. HTML5 storage or local storage allows us to distinguish your device from others and to remember information that might be important for the functioning of the Website, such as to remember your logged in state. Typically, HTML5 storage is only deleted if all Internet history, cache, and cookies are deleted. Check your browser controls for information on how to delete your HTML5 storage.

Third Party Cookies and Tracking:

We use third-party service providers, including Google Analytics, to assist us in collecting and understanding usage information. To learn more about Google Analytics, visit their privacy policy. You may opt out of Google Analytics by downloading their browser add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. Note that we are not responsible for their opt-out tool.

We do not serve targeted advertising on our Website, however, when you use the Internet, unaffiliated third parties, including ad networks, analytics companies, and social networking platforms, may use tracking technologies such as those described above to collect information about your online activities over time and across our and other websites in order to serve you advertisements that they believe may be of interest to you. As with most sites, we do not honor “do not track” signals transmitted by web browsers as there is no industry standard for implementing such programs.

For more information about third-party advertisers and how to prevent them from using your information, visit the NAI’s consumer website at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices or  http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.

ONLINE ORDER FORM OPTIMIZATION

CLIENT: LEADING SCIENTIFIC AND EDUCATIONAL NON-PROFIT AND MEDIA ORGANIZATION.

Better UX Improved Customer Experience - and Reduced Costs

Optimize online subscription order pages across marketing channels.

Challenge:

  • Layout of existing order pages limited the number of offers/options and the user journey spread across multiple pages.
  • Client wanted increased flexibility for updating marketing messaging and legal disclosures.
  • Alternative payment options were not available.

Solution:

  • Designed new order page that clearly displayed the specific benefits of each offer in a user-friendly format.
  • Consolidated regional offers/types of orders within the same page to avoid users having to navigate between pages.
  • Redesigned order flow to include alternative payment options seamlessly.
  • Created the ability to incorporate updates and toggle dynamically based on type of offer or other business need.

Results:

  • Improved user experience by creating an all-in-one shop that the client desired.
  • Reduced cost for future maintenance and changes in content/offers; after testing changes rolled out to the client’s other brands.

Strategic Planning


Any new client relationship begins with a comprehensive review of your current business, pinpointing immediate needs, challenges, and goals. We study your recent successes and obstacles, identify methods to best meet your objectives, and then rigorously test those assumptions. Once clear goals have been outlined, we create a customized plan and regularly review progress to ensure we remain on target.

Strategic planning may include the following:

  • SWOT Analysis
  • Annual Review of Goals and Objectives
  • Predictive Modeling
  • Budgets and Financial Planning
  • Test Planning and Evaluation
  • Research and Competitive Analysis

Acquisition and Retention


At PWX Solutions, we understand the multi-faceted approach needed for an effective and comprehensive marketing strategy. For maximum success and revenue growth, we focus on both new business acquisition and retention marketing to help our clients reach profitability and longevity.

Driving New Business

New business acquisition is key for growing and maintaining your business. From the top of the acquisition funnel, we assist clients with identifying their target audiences, communicating effectively to prospects, and converting those prospects into paid customers or donors. Investing in a robust new business strategy will ultimately pay off over time, leading to increased ROI and profitability.

Maximizing Customer Retention

While new business feeds the funnel, a solid retention strategy is essential for revenue growth. Strong retention rates indicate satisfied customers, which is always our goal! Nurturing and engaging with existing customers is vital – replacing a customer is much more costly than keeping an existing one – and thus contributes to long-term profitability. Our marketers are experts at managing subscription and membership businesses, optimizing retention rates and maximizing overall net revenue.
