NTTY-X Revamped Website on Veco Sponge

Our Case Study is with NTTY-X long-running client Vita Enterprises, a renowned maritime organization with a presence since the 1980s. In March 2022, they drafted plans to launch its own branding of its cleaning service – Veco Sponge, a sponge-media surface cleaning solution that offering environmentally-friendly abrasive cleaning for the Oil and Marine Industry.  After some initial groundwork of their own, Veco engaged us to better their strategy here in Singapore, sharpen marketing focus, while fostering relationship and brand awareness vis-à-vis industry partners and the media.

The Case

NTTY-X started off the project with an initial audit for Veco. While they are blessed with a quality product and a considerable starting base of marketing assets to work with, several weaknesses marred them from carrying out an effective long-term marketing plan.

General Lack of Direction: Lacking of essentials such as a long-term roadmap + brand positioning, brand guide, brand story, key messages and more.

Lack of Essential Online Touchpoints: Information about Veco online was only hosted on a subpage of VITA’s website network, and not a standalone website with its own domain. This mars the public from seeing and esteeming Veco as a standalone brand, and readers lack a thorough touchpoint to gain an initial understanding about Veco online from. Veco’s lack of professional social media presence, such as a Google Business Profile and LinkedIN, barriers potential partners reaching out to them.

Visual & Presentation Issues:  Veco’s initial general lack of direction also causes their visuals and overall vibes to be inconsistent and jarring to the viewer. Usage of assets from other websites, as well as printing on sub-average material for hardcopies, make them seem unoriginal and unprofessional.

Outreach: Veco lacks of clarity on how to approach market awareness, and is weak in lead capturing strategy and plans.
