BA, Head of Product Delivery, JLL

Background

With a turnover of $6.8bn, operations in 80 countries and 85,000 employees, JLL is one of the largest names in real estate.

The firm owns, occupies and invests in industrial, commercial, retail, residential and hotel property around EMEAR, with many high-value deals and relationships.

JLL’s B2B clients span verticals such as banking, energy, healthcare, law, life sciences, manufacturing and technology.

Velo has supported the JLL team across marketing, communications and creative activities since 2015.

Challenge

Having such high-end clients means the average new deal size for JLL is considerable. In such a competitive and fast-moving nature of the sector, achieving continuous sales is essential for cash flow.

However, how buyers make purchasing decisions is changing. Increasingly they use the JLL website to research properties before interacting with the sales team. With 7 million professionals visiting the site every year, JLL’s digital assets have become a fundamental part of its branding and lead generation strategy. Ensuring the customer experience reinforces the quality and prestige of the JLL brand both through content, UX and UI is essential.

Partnership approach

Velo has been JLL’s digital content and communications agency for the UK and Europe since 2015.

We work in partnership with JLL’s technical teams and are a fundamental player in the project team. Following JLL’s preferred project management tools and methodologies, the digital and content strategy is aligned into sprints so that it’s often hard to differentiate between who works for whom.

JLL enjoy all our capabilities through a full-service partnership.

Highlights so far

  • Within a month of launching a new site for JLL, our UX work led to a 13% increase in call conversion rates.
  • We worked in multiple languages with the EMEAR team on UX design best practice and on-site optimisation. This led to a significant drop in bounce rate and generated overwhelmingly positive feedback from the sales teams.
  • Videos produced for events and sales collateral generated new commercial conversations and help uphold the high quality, ambitious brand image of JLL.
