Why Orange & Bergamot?

A brand increases sales. We believe there’s a difference between a “web site” and a “branded web site”
Small business owners don’t know where to go for branding or digital marketing. It’s either expensive, or on the opposite end, cheap with little to no real help.

Of course, you can figure it out, just like you can probably figure out how to change the oil of your car, or sew your own clothes . .but WHY?

Focus on your business.

 

Why us?

We have 30+ combined years in branding, website design and development, we’ve worked with Fortune 100 brands and now want to bring our agency know-how to the modern small business owner.

 

Why shouldn’t I hire a freelancer?

Hired help could end up being unskilled, unreliable and unresponsive.

We believe you need an entire team to get your brand & digital marketing.

Most freelancers usually have only one skill set. . .they understand the front-end (design) or the back-end (coding). So if you hire a freelancer, you’ll need to hire and manage more than one.

A freelancer doesn’t have all the skills required. . .You could hire a designer to make your site look pretty but then he/she may not know the latest coding / best practices.

Your programmer may know how to code, but have no idea about how to design, let alone create a brand!

 

What makes Orange & Bergamot different?

Design automation
We’ve identified there’s an easier and faster way to get to a brand.
We’ve created 12 core brand archetypes.
You take a brand quiz to determine their archetype, and a certified U.S.-based designer takes that information and creates a custom brand for you!

Brand Squad
We’re speeding up the development process by building and training a network of on-demand contractors and a backend work management platform that allows this network to pick up jobs as needed, and compete against each other for speed and efficiency.

Technology Platform
To speed up the work, we’ve created a platform that helps us dispatch work remotely.

Digital Marketing
Our product offering doesn’t end at launch; we will continue to provide our customers with package and add-on options for social media support, email newsletter templates, and digital ad campaigns, to drive traffic to the site and build traction post-launch.

Membership Model
Orange & Bergamot offers both experienced branding and website maintenance services on an ongoing basis. We’ve sped up the process with a proprietary branding algorithm and technology enabled platform. To help manage projects we use a sophisticated technology platform that dispatches work here and off shore.

Your vision will be up and running in as little as 4 weeks (if we get all the content) from you at the start of the project. Your website will receive ongoing maintenance and updates as needed. As your company evolves, we plan to seamlessly evolve your brand and website along with you!

 

How does the process work?

Customers first take a proprietary brand test to determine their brand archetype through an A.I.-assisted design algorithm. Accredited designers then use this analysis to create a brand template. Our backend dispatch technology platform allows certified designers and developers to pick up work and compete against each other for both speed, fit and efficiency. You will be able to review and provide feedback during this process, which takes about 4 weeks until your website is ready to launch.
