Sales were down and brand awareness fell to a low level. minimum and fewer and fewer participants were interested in the SEO training.

No visibility = no success! What is the AFS? What is the AFS not?

That was the central question. From the answers, our team [consisting of designers, conversion experts, SEOs and copywriters] to develop a concept and give the website a new look and feel. design. The idea – playfully motivate website visitors to convert and leave no questions unanswered leave. Not an easy task.


We needed solutions with a guarantee of success

Put your heads together and brainstorm. All new. Nothing should stay the same! New design. New content. New photos. New structure. More depth. More information. More conversion.

Driven by the goals: More leads. More course participants. More turnover.

These and other points were implemented during the relaunch. The new website was now online. The SEO training took place online. More than 30 lecturers have worked in poorly produced videos passed on their expertise to the course participants.

If we are already in the relaunch phase, we might as well produce the courses from scratch! Why not? In 20 days, our film team, together with 60 lecturers, recorded 120 lectures live and in color in the studio. At the same time, two programmers have completely redesigned the Online Campus. After In just thirty days, we were able to successfully complete the work with enormous effort. We are always on fire for customer projects.

Just two months later, we went online with the streaming service and were able to launch another Establish offer. An additional source of income independent of training!

In the final step, we had to attract attention on social media and generate backlinks from relevant specialist portals. That’s why our outreach specialists got on the phone and has generated an incredible number of mentions in the media. The entire project and the digital PR strategy were a success across the board.
