Duck Tape takes Flight Under a New Website

December 17, 2009 Leave a comment

It’s been a busy week for press releases from our clients. Shurtech Brands, owners of Duck brands which includes Duck® Tape, announced the launch last week of another DigitalDay designed and developed website:

The new Duck brands website, designed and developed by DigitalDay, went live Monday this week.

This new Duck site combined four previously separate properties into one stronger, content-rich and content managed, online marketing presence.

Like many companies, Duck brands developed separate websites over the years to support different marketing strategies. Not only did this cause maintenance headaches, it confused consumers and diluted the brand’s messaging.

The old Duck Tape website, developed when the brand was owned by Henkel Corporation.

DigitalDay’s strategy to develop a consolidated site under a fresh, modern, brand-appropriate umbrella will have many benefits:

  • Engaged consumers will find richer content and return to the site more often
  • Search ranking will increase, yielding more traffic
  • Maintenance will be minimized

To help the client keep service costs down, DigitalDay implemented Sitecore’s Content Management System. This powerful tool will allow the client to make routine updates, product changes and review and approve consumer-generated content through an easy to understand interface.

So, without any further adieu, here’s the new release . . .
