As a leading manufacturer and upfitter of commercial work truck attachments and equipment, Douglas Dynamics needed a partner who could help them optimize not just one but three of their national websites. Initially focused on improving page speed and navigation, we quickly identified bigger challenges. After rebuilding and stabilizing their web properties, we've continued to work closely with their marketing team to realign their digital ecosystem and streamline the customer journey.

Simplify property managementStreamline how the marketing team manages and updates it's brands.
Optimize user experiencesContinuously improve and expand web features and tactical strategies.
Executed a comprehensive multi-discipline web auditWe conducted a UX, site speed, and ADA audit where we uncovered a slew of plugins and development problems focused on Elementor. While it's an excellent tool for smaller sites, it can't be customized for a client of this size. Armed with analytics, we created a strategic and proactive plan to keep their fourth redevelopment project as smooth and straightforward as possible — reusing and revising brand assets.
Improve UX by leveraging WordPress multisiteTo keep the budget down, we kept their websites on WordPress Engine but rebuilt everything using its multisite functionality. This allowed us to build repeatable, reusable page templates and components using the same core code while displaying different brand designs and assets based on application. We also took this time to rebuild the navigation into a full-page experience and enhance filtering across the board.
Continue to refine and add new tools and featuresEach year, we create a more refined customer experience by leveling up SEO strategies, enhancing web tools, launching new products, and better integrating marketing and operational tech stacks. The focus continues to be on simplifying the buyer's journey and streamlining how their team builds and manages assets, with direct support from Lightburn specialists.
Invest in end-to-end optimization and analyticsWhen you put in this much work, you need to know exactly how it's impacting your business. Our client strategists and digital marketing pros continue to optimize all of their web properties. Additionally, we're reorganizing data in GA4 and building a custom single-source report for their team to monitor and delineate activities, impact, and findings.
