Shaiheim, is a student with diverse learning needs (ASD). He needed an online display of his work, his personality and skills to stand out from his peers. The solution would also need to be low touch and easy to maintain going forward.
To create a well-rounded web presence to get noticed by potential employers & clients
Create a personal branding site, that is engaging, simple that shows off personality in a professional manner. We created a simple portfolio site using WordPress so Shaiheim can upload and change the site in the future. In addition we discussed with Shaiheim what work he wanted to showcase, plus worked together on the text. The uploaded portfolio to showcased the student's talent. In order for our client to also shine we created an CV/resume in an infographic format to make his profile come to life. Finally we created a clear call to action for interested employees to recruit or donate through Patreon.
We’ve achieved 210 visits upon launch, which generated a number of new enquiries from colleges and employers. In the campaign’s inaugural month of activity the goal Conversion rate 17%, surpassing the client’s target.
From The Client
“I have a website that I can add my work too. I never created a CV before at school so it was nice to see all my skills in one place”
“It was a pleasure to work on shaiheim.com. Student's are constantly competing in a market that they are not equipped for, with apprenticeship places being more scarce then ever before. This is even more of a challenge with students that have diverse learning needs, we are delivering this provision to more school students over the next 6 months.”
