It’s not every day that you get a chance to improve something truly legendary, so when this one landed in my inbox, I jumped on it without any hesitation!
Thanks to the valuable insight, a rockstar team, and a roster of important connections, in 2016 IBM decided to buy out Bluewolf for $200M – one of the largest service agency acquisitions to happen in recent history.

Previous website tried to answer too many questions and focused on too many things at the same time, resulting in the dilution of conversion rate. New website was designed strategically to answer only the questions that users need answered, and the rest of the "sale" was to be done after they get in touch with internal Bluewolf representatives.
Website became an 'open door' through which users could very quickly enter Bluewolf, instead of going through mazes of hallways in hopes to find answers to their questions.
