Jiang Law Corporation is a distinguished law firm based in Richmond, British Columbia, a region home to the largest Chinese community. The firm is dedicated to serving clients of Chinese descent, leveraging their profound understanding of Chinese culture and traditions, as well as their deep familiarity with the Canadian Judicial System. They offer a broad spectrum of services including family law, real estate law, immigration law, corporate law, and more, and are deeply committed to delivering personalized, high-quality, and result-oriented legal services.
Despite their expertise and dedication to serving their clientele, Jiang Law faced a significant challenge – their static, non-responsive, six-year-old website. The site was exclusively in Mandarin, difficult to navigate on mobile devices, and did not effectively communicate the firm’s growing business to potential new clients. Moreover, the site was hard to update, restricting the firm’s ability to keep their clientele informed of their latest services and accomplishments.
Target ICT, a business-focused IT consultancy, was approached to address these challenges. Our mission was to redesign the website, making it a powerful tool for Jiang Law to attract, engage, and convert potential clients. This was not just about making the website look better – it was about creating a platform that truly reflected the quality and breadth of Jiang Law’s services, while reaching out to both their English and Chinese-speaking clientele. We aimed to transform their website into a dynamic, user-friendly platform that would effectively generate leads and contribute positively to their business growth.
As we delve into this case study, we will take you through our meticulous process, the solutions we implemented, and the impact of our work on Jiang Law’s lead generation and overall business performance.
When Jiang Law Corporation approached us, the website they were using was far from ideal for the goals they wanted to achieve. It was nearly six years old and was facing several significant challenges.
These challenges formed the crux of the problem that needed to be addressed. The website was not just an information portal but a crucial part of Jiang Law’s client acquisition and service process. As such, these issues were more than inconveniences – they were significant barriers to the firm’s growth.
In the initial meeting, we used Skype and email to communicate with the client and better understand their needs and frustrations.
Client Interview: During our discussion, the law firm explained their desire to make their services more accessible to both English and Chinese-speaking clients, to reflect their business’s growth, and to make the website more user-friendly and easy to update. By conducting a thorough interview, we were able to identify their needs, understand their business model, and gather enough information to start designing a website that would meet all their requirements and exceed their expectations.
Mockup creation & proposal: After we fully understood the client’s requirements, we set to work creating three different website mockups. Each mockup was designed with the client’s needs and specifications in mind but offered different aesthetics and layouts for the client to choose from. This gave the client an opportunity to visualize their new website and have a say in how it would look and feel.
Once the client selected their preferred mockup, we prepared a comprehensive proposal. This proposal detailed the features that the new website would include, such as a mobile-responsive design, bilingual capabilities, and search engine optimization, among others. It also outlined the cost of implementing these features and the timeline for the project. We collaborated closely with the client to fine-tune this proposal until we reached an agreement that was satisfactory to both parties.
Redesign process: During the redesign process, we made several key changes to the website that were aligned with the client’s needs and contributed to a more user-friendly, accessible, and effective online presence.
1. Multilingual Feature: One of the major changes we made was to create a multilingual version of the website. This was a significant improvement because the firm’s target market included both English and Chinese-speaking clients. Having a website that could cater to both these language groups broadened the firm’s reach and made it more accessible to a wider audience. This decision has proven to be incredibly beneficial, with the firm receiving numerous legal enquiries and briefs in both English and Chinese ever since the new website was launched.
2. Responsive Design: We also ensured that the new website was responsive, meaning that it would automatically adjust to fit the screen size of the viewing device. This feature improved the website’s functionality and usability, particularly for mobile users who were previously having difficulty viewing the old website.
3. Ease of Navigation: The new website was designed to be easy to navigate. We organized the website’s content in a clear and logical way, allowing users to find the information they needed quickly and easily.
4. Contact Information: We made it simple for clients to contact the firm by including clear and prominent contact information on the website. Clients could now easily get in touch with the firm via phone, email, or by planning an office visit.
5. SEO Friendly: Finally, we made sure that the website was built to be search engine friendly and in accordance with the latest standards. This meant optimizing the website’s content and meta tags, among other elements, to improve its visibility on search engines and attract more organic traffic.
