Best Home Loans is a mortgage broker service based in Queensland, Australia who help negotiate a better deal on a home loan with lenders, giving you access to special rates and superior loan terms. The website they had was really clunky and bad. It was developed using old HTML markup and it also wasn’t had a responsive design and mobile-first strategy. Also, the earlier website was build using ASP.NET, which led the client to a stage that they were unable to edit or manage any aspect of the website.

So, the client asked us to redesign the website from the scratch and ask us to improvise on their old design that they had. So that for the end users, it still retain almost similar color profile and user experience. Also previously as the site was built using ASP.NET which is running on a Windows Server, it was insanely slow and cannot take any serious user load. So, along with moving the site to WordPress and a new Linux Server, the client had also asked us to optimize the site to its optimum level so that it can be loaded at a blazing fast speed.

Things We’ve Done

  • Designing and developing a stunning responsive website using WordPress
  • Ensuring the new design and color profile have a similar look and feel to the old design they had before
  • Ensuring the site has all the right ingredient to take advantage of the new HTTP2 protocol
  • Optimizing the site to load at a blazing fast speed

Now the new website of Best Home Loans, not only just looks good but also loads at a blazing fast speed. The average load time of this website now is 781 milliseconds compared to 11 seconds previously. Also, the user interaction on the website has been increased by 293% with the new website design super fast loading time. Due to the responsiveness of the design, the bounce rate for mobile users has been reduced by 64.7%.
