SAN DIEGO – January 27, 2014 – The Ken Blanchard Companies®, a global leader in workplace learning, productivity, and leadership effectiveness, announced the launch of its new website to help clients achieve their leadership goals.

The international management training and consulting firm selected full-service, brand communications agency Jacob Tyler, to design the user-friendly, interactive site for visitors to find tailored solutions for their needs.

“CEOs and their Chief Learning Officers look to us to solve some of their greatest organizational challenges. The new website is simplified and showcases our offerings in a way that’s easy to understand,” said Wendy Wong, Senior Vice President of Marketing at The Ken Blanchard Companies. “The Jacob Tyler team brought insightful ideas to the table that have increased our brand awareness so we’re able to interact with not only companies, enterprise clients, government agencies, and trainers and learners, but we’re also prepared to better engage with the Gen Y demographic as they enter the workforce.”

While Blanchard is already ahead of the curve in its industry, the new website aimed to improve the online experience for its users by shortening the sales cycle and better educating visitors on the company’s offerings. Jacob Tyler not only focused its efforts on the new website design, but also developed Blanchard’s information architecture and content strategy.

“Jacob Tyler began this process by simplifying Blanchard’s information architecture to make the breadth of its offerings clear and accessible, and to ensure their brand stays focused over time,” explained Melissa Kaysen, Vice President of Brand Strategy and Marketing at Jacob Tyler. “This exercise is a crucial element of brand development and sets the foundation for a strong brand messaging platform.”

“Already we are seeing an increase in our web traffic and inquiries for public workshops,” said Wong. “Making things easier to find on our website has been the biggest difference in how we engage with our customers.”

It’s Jacob Tyler’s unique brand strategy approach that translates to measurable results for its clients. With a new website that promotes their online resources, boasts a streamlined navigation and engages its user with interactive design elements, Blanchard is now able to focus on lead generation and conversion.
