[Case Study] What You Can Learn from 5 Profitable Websites

In this second article of our 3-part series on revamping website content, we’re sharing brief case studies on 5 profitable websites we’ve created this year.

To recap our previous installment, you may need to update your website messaging and design if you experience any of the following 3 situations:

1. Your audience’s needs have evolved—whether the needed solutions have changed in tandem with technology, economic happenings, or social changes.

2. Your website message is out of date. If you make references to old solutions that are no longer relevant, the message won’t resonate. Or the site design might appear old and stagnant.

3. Your site traffic is unmotivated. To engage hot prospects, create successful lead magnets, updated blogs, and ongoing webinar series.

If you’ve made the decision to revamp your website in the coming year, don’t go in blind!

Check out the strategies used in the following websites.


In writing for software and logistics industries, the audience needs to receive information in an easy-to-digest format. With logistics and software, it’s easy to get bogged down in the process or details.

Logistics industry leaders look for content that answers an important question…

“How will this help streamline operations?” While nearly every industry wants to know “What’s in it for me?” the logistics audience requires concrete specifics.

To meet this goal, we crafted copy that cuts straight to the frustration.

See below for a snippet of website content that grinds the pain and offers a counter-balancing solution.

“Because of slow manual processes, or expensive, outdated systems, companies struggle with complex logistics and delivery efficiency. The hours spent managing orders, driver status, transaction captures, and slow billing cycles equate to lost profits. Until now, proprietary hardware systems were the only offering on the market. That’s no longer the case.”

In revamping your website, consider what will resonate with your audience most. Think about their struggles and desires, and how your message will convey that your business has answers.

See below for a brief example of how the CloudFuel website accomplished this feat.

Main Street Alternative Asset Planners  

The Main Street Alternative Asset Planners’ audience is searching for answers to complicated questions, so the website message is all about education.

Those questions revolve around finances, and our copywriters ensured that the message offered no-nonsense advice and solutions.

To provide the audience with consistent and updated information, we created a weekly blog that covered an important aspect of investment.

Some of the ongoing topics include…

  • Outsourcing rental property management.
  • Retirement strategies.
  • Protecting 401(k) money.
  • Using IRAs to fund small business ventures.

All of these topics make a complex issue clearer. As you develop your website revamp strategy, think about giving your audience clarity as well.

As a second example of a message that de-complicates an issue, see the image below.

The Clearance Lab

The Clearance Lab’s website is an example of content that addresses a very specific audience.

To provide educational content that shows production houses and filmmakers how to protect themselves from copyright and trademark infringement, we produced educational content.

Our goal was to help website traffic navigate the trickiness of the legal world.

To pull this off, we took a direct approach and revealed the benefits of each legal service. For example:

For your own website, consider whether or not you’ll need to establish a schedule to update content. This helps with SEO and audience engagement.

In the past few years, our copywriting team has worked with more and more leaders in the 3PL industry—chief among these is ProPack.
