360 TACTICAL TRAINING
Responsive ExpressionEngine driven website offering firearms and tactical
training in Houston, Texas
The 360 Tactical Training website was outdated and difficult to navigate. The bounce rate was increasing and sales were stagnant. The website was very constrictive, making updates difficult and painful. There was no mobile site which was hurting search and the overall user experience. Finding content and courses was cumbersome.
We provided a modern and better brand experience for customers. We streamlined the navigation and featured popular courses on the home page. Each course page was designed to give a quick overview, without bogging the customer down with too much information. In addition, the responsive design helped the majority of visitors find the information they needed quickly and easily. This resulted in an increase in organic search and sales.
The site is performing so well that we spend too much time entering orders into our in-house point-of-sale application and creating rosters. It’s not a bad problem to have. Our courses are selling out regularly and we are planning to add new courses to keep up with demand.
