Marketing Strategy:

Chillies Software focuses on four factors which contribute to the marketing strategy. Most of their projects follow a cyclical process of planning, concepts,building and then evaluating the results to meet their objectives successfully:

Planning:

In this first phase, we collect everything necessary in order to recommend the best way to achieve our client goals. We use a variety of tools, including agency/client workshops, published and commissioned research, and a bit of intuition. The creative brief summarizes the results of understanding the client’s situation and competitive environment, the target audience and their behaviour, key objectives and measures of success. 

Concepts:

The creative brief is used as the basis for the overall concept, or ‘big idea’. Brainstorming with all members of the team means that the designs are both technically sound and results-driven. To make sure we’re on the right track, and also get feedback from the target audience on the chosen designs before moving forward. 

Building:

Here’s where we stitch everything together. Using one ‘big idea’ as a foundation, we produce graphics, program, incorporate all content, design and build databases. At the end of this stage, we have full functionality. But we’re not quite finished yet. We test on all platforms, with a variety of browsers, from both functionality and usability perspectives. Only after revisions have been made from this stage, do we consider a project complete. 

Evaluating:

Because we are a results-driven agency, we review and analyse performance no matter what the project. From looking at statistics to find out whether a banner campaign is delivering traffic, to observing site visitors to see whether usability has increased, we use this insight to provide suggestions for further improvement. And then start planning all over again. 

Mission:

Chillies Software has one purpose to provide all consumers with the ability to access websites & apps by providing the corporate sector with efficient websites that would meet all parties requirements and needs. Chillies Software will consistently build on the mission. Everything we do from their pricing structure to the uniquely built websites, apps and or CRM solutions.
