They provide their clients with a wide range of services, for instance; washing, polishing, detailing, rust proofing, window tinting, 3M film protection, remote starters and electronics installation. Car dealership in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) regularly chooses Shammy’s Auto because of their professional staff, competitive pricing, on-time delivery and service excellence.
We were referred to Shammy’s Auto by one of our clients in November 2014. Our initial observations indicated that Shammy needed better branding and a new website. Upon further research, we found more complications with the website design, social media and Google AdWords. During the first consultation, we advised Shammy to completely overhaul his brand, design and online marketing strategy.
DigiPix began the redevelopment of Shammy’s Auto website in March 2015. To accomplish our ambitious goals, we worked through a number of phases:
The old Shammy’s Auto logo was just SHAMMY’S AUTO DETAILING INC. written in a simple upper-case bold font and didn’t have any identity to the business and brand representation.
The logo needed a more modern conceptualization to catch the eye of potential customers. We suggested the removal of “Auto Detailing Inc.” because the full business name does not need to be in the logo. By simplifying the name, there is now room for a tagline and more services under the same brand.
Our design team worked on a few concepts initially, but Shammy wanted to include a car’s outline in the logo somewhere/somehow. We wanted to design a bold, powerful and future-proof logo that would be eye-catching and have a lifespan of up to at least 15 years.
After careful research looking at modern cars, we decided to present three concepts of the logo. The first concept was in a retro style while the second was a classic style and the third, a modern style.
The 3 concept logos were displayed in the reception area of Shammy’s Auto for over a week. Shammy chose the modern concept version of the logo. A general survey of customers showed that they preferred the modern version of the logo as well.
As well as redesigning the Shammy’s Auto website, DigiPix Inc. also designed new business cards, appointment cards, letterhead and envelopes and promotional posters.
Shammy’s old website did not meet modern mobile compatibility standards, so we completely overhauled its design. Click here to read the full case study of ShammysAuto.com website design.
Based on Google Analytics research we did on Shammy’s Auto’s existing website, we discovered that most of Shammy’s customers searched for his services via mobile phone as opposed to via a desktop computer. By utilizing OnPage and OffPage SEO (Search Engine Optimization) we increased Shammy’s business from mobile and desktop searchers. Read the full details about the marketing here.
