Helping increase digital engagement through a fresh new web design
Categories: Food and Drink
We worked with luxury ice-cream maker, Mackie's of Scotland, to create a new user generated website for both their ice-cream and crisp products that showcased their extensive product ranges. Mackie's is a very traditional brand and has some very much loved products, notably their luxury vanilla ice-cream. They came to us looking for an overhaul of their old website and to promote their new potato crisp products.
The Mackies crisp website was initially launched to much success. The Mackies website followed shortly after, this was redesigned and developed as part of a project to manage both sites through the one content management system (CMS).
After consumer research into what Mackie’s consumers want, we created a modern website that focused on maximising brand awareness, online presence and interaction with their consumers. The website was full of user generated content such as recipes and how best to enjoy Mackie’s products. In addition it incorporated bespoke marketing software that allows Mackie’s to communicate with their database, Friends of Mackie’s as and when they see fit and track the success of their online campaigns. Another key feature of the site was the introduction of social media marketing and content sharing which became integral to Mackie's of Scotland online strategy.
We provided integration of the CMS to allow publishing to social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter allowed Mackie’s to engage with their users easily.
We designed and developed the site to naturally builds authority and brand awareness through an increased number of users and return visits, driven by new content and user comments.

The team at Zen have provided excellent service and quality of work since the latter part of 2015 when we got them in to do our first ever SEO campaign. Given it was the first time we had embarked on a project like this at Howden, the team at Zen were in regular contact with us providing us with updates and improvements to make the campaign a success, whilst also ensuring our original budget was put to effective use and never strayed beyond the agreed amount.
The Zen Agency have worked hard with us to find a workable solution to help us with on-line applications. This site is our main marketing tool and therefore it is important that we have a reliable web company to support us to achieve our marketing goals. The top priority was to make it easy for applicants to find out information about our courses and to apply - feedback from our students indicates we have achieved this.
