Conversions rocket by 364% for GenCell

Fuel cell energy company GenCell has seen a 364% uplift in conversions to its Contact Us form after appointing us to redesign and build its website.

Established in 2011, GenCell was seeking a new site to help transform its online presence from a research and design company to a global, commercially-focused organisation ‘ready to do business’.

We have also been working with GenCell in the digital marketing space to support the team with SEO, display advertising, continuous testing and technical development to help the company achieve its goals.
