Case Study

Digital ecosystem redefines online paint category and increases customer sign ups by 120 per cent

As part of a decade-long partnership with Porter’s Paints, Soda Digital was asked to create a category-defining website to bring 18,000+ colour and wallpaper combinations to life online, inviting discovery from a new and wider audience.

A key focus was giving Porter’s staff more control over content by taking the complexity out of managing a large, frequently changing product range.

Optimal outcomes for both usability and navigation were achieved by creating targeted content and separate user journeys for different audience needs including trade, industry and consumers.

Content at Scale

Being able to manage content at scale and keep it current was a key focus for Porter’s Paints.

“Our brand reputation is everything. Because we can change content across the site precisely, we can be confident what we’re putting out into the world is consistent.”

Big picture

The site developed not only captures the visual style of the Porter’s brand authentically, but meets the requirements of three distinct personas — retail, specifiers and trade equally.

The purchase journey is seamless, from store to painted wall, with the ability to locate products, stockists and trade by location all in one place.

Everything they need

A fully responsive e-commerce store enhances the digital ecosystem and makes online shopping effortless on any device. An immersive product catalogue provides multiple ways to navigate content with effortless browsing, searching and sorting by tone or category.

Central hub for digital marketing

These two enterprise-grade platforms create a focal point for digital marketing activities including email and remarketing campaigns.

We’ve generated a valuable new stream of social media engagement with high-value industry practitioners and a massive 120 per cent increase in newsletter sign ups.
