Describe the target audience for your website design

Our target audience are sales tax managers, credit managers. The people who deal with collecting excemption certificates from their customers so that they don't have to pay tax. Our current site (which will become a microsite with far fewer pages) is at www.certcapture.com. The site we need to emulate (but not copy exactly) is www.avalara.com.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your website design

For the homepage I've setup the following text. There will be a video which will be a popup coming from a button.

Sales Tax Exemption Certificate Management

We take care of it, so you don't have to

Video button - Dov Pinker productions

Primary Call to Action - Learn More / Get Started

Customer validation - greyed out logos

Key benefits

1- Automate collection and digital storage of exemption certificates (Dave - collect online, hands free and verify)

Increase compliance. Centralize your collection process. No more binders in strange places. Make audits easy, not a rush of paper chasing under pressure.

2- Straightforward verification and integration

Verify your certificates as they come in and map them automatically to your customers and purchase orders within your current CRM, ERP and tax software.

3- Stay on top of your game (make audits easy, no more fire drills)

View certificates in seconds. Understand which certificates in which states are expiring, quickly initiate a mass renewal request. Provide auditors with the data they need in minutes.

Repeat call to action - Learn More

How is your company different from your competitors?

Commonly people currently store their certificates in binders, so having the ability to have them scanned and managed for you makes them much more management and accessible.

Pushing the deadline out as many designers have not submitted a design for the second page. This is a 2 page project. If you haven't already done so, please submit a design for http://www.certcapture.com/resource_center/cert...

Thanks for your great work. I really appreciate the submissions we've received to date. - Bart

- This is a two page contest. If you haven't submitted a page for the Free Certificate Library, please do so. http://www.certcapture.com/resource_center/cert...

- We'd like to go with vertical benefits vs. horizontal for the homepage. If you've submitted designs with the benefits side by side, please resubmit designs with them stacked on top of one another.

- "Key Benefits" and "Our Customers" are headers and shouldn't be in your actual design.

- Learn More and watching the video are two distinct actions in the hero graphic. Learn More should be more prevalent than the video itself.

- The Customer List can go anywhere within the "first fold". If a customer is highlighted in the hero graphic, its fine to put the list lower down.

- The benefit icons should be colored and not pictures of people. The Avalara icons have specific means. Using the certificates Icon is great where appropriate. Many of you have used the Calc icon in an inappropriate way. I'll try to provide individual feedback on this.
