THE OPPORTUNITY

You can’t touch this

Mirakl is the leading enterprise solution for marketplace platforms across industries for B2B and B2C companies ready to scale their ecommerce.

As the only hyper growth unicorn leader in the space, they had the best platform to win customers, but they needed a marketing presence and brand identity to match. Mirakl came to us for a marketing site that would reflect their refined messaging, modernize their visual identity, and act as a perpetual lead generation machine that their competitors couldn’t match.

Our Strategy

THE CHALLENGE

The double edge of brand awareness

As a category leader, Mirakl had a strong and established brand. But adhering too closely to brand guidelines can often stifle creativity and make it difficult to visually differentiate from the competition.

Our challenge was to modernize the Mirakl website and defend their market position from within the existing messaging and brand guidelines that had brought them success so far.

And to do it, we would have to align stakeholders across multiple teams and countries—each with their own agenda and website objectives. That meant bridging everyone from across US Marketing, EMEA Marketing, Revenue Operations, People Operations, Legal, Security, Seller and Partnership teams while adhering to SRE protocols and ensuring GDPR and SOC2 compliance.

THE RESEARCH

Uncover the rookie mistakes

To beat the enemy, we first had to know them. We started Mirakl’s new website with thorough competitor research to examine how younger companies presented themselves. On the flip side, we also interviewed countless stakeholders across Mirakl to drill into their deepest differentiators.

Unsurprisingly, most young competitors were hyper-focused on features. Instead of telling a broader story, they fixated on disjointed lists and UI screens. They also lacked the depth and breadth of social proof that Mirakl had accumulated over the past 12+ years.

Lastly, we dug deep to understand the needs of each audience persona including customers, partners, and job seekers. We mapped each journey and prepared to support them in the new website.

THE DIRECTION

Features are table stakes

We dug deeper than basic feature lists and UI screens to create a broader story for Mirakl. After all, emotion and story are major drivers in B2B purchase decisions (despite how rational we think we are).

Instead, we told the story of “Now or never—at scale”. To support this, we elevated the proof points and key differentiators of Technology, Expertise, and Ecosystem into the navigation and created clear pathways between each one.

Then to develop that story further, we created a distinct visual language within the bounds of their existing brand guidelines. If marketplace operators wanted to offer more products without having to store them in a warehouse, why not show that? We brought it to life with custom, augmented storefront animations.

The pièce de résistance was the untouchable social proof we wove throughout the site at every turn. From Best Buy, to Macy’s, and Toyota, we let enterprise companies sell Mirakl for us.

Once the English site was successfully launched, we worked with Mirakl’s international teams to add regionalization and language translations. Then we launched regionalized sites for Japanese, French, Spanish, German, Italian and Portuguese.

THE MORAL OF THE STORY

Nurturing a deep trust

Standing out from the competition with modernized messaging and design may have been the initial goal for the new website, but that was only the beginning.

In the busy world of a hyper growth unicorn, Mirakl doesn’t have time to maintain a website—let alone strategically consolidate requests from across international teams and languages. So we handle it. We continue to support Mirakl through their growth phase and guide their stakeholders through every edit, addition, and strategic marketing decision they don’t want to handle. And we do it fast.

We did it! I know it has been some late nights, long weekends and blurry eyes but man do we have a sexy website. Everyone please take a moment and just feel proud of the before and after. This is a stunning website and I can’t wait for the whole world to see it as we continue to promote it.
