Making it truly global
and highly flexible

The new website would need to serve over a dozen global markets. So it was crucial to make it easy to localise and personalise for specific languages and events.

For Booksy’s marketing team, the site needed to be simple to manage and flexible to their needs. And, above all, it needed to support their commercial goals by attracting and converting new customers at scale.

Combing through Booksy’s
B2B product strategy

We kicked off the project by reviewing and analysing Booksy’s B2B customer segmentation, product strategy, and positioning. We also took a detailed look at their competition and how they present similar offerings.

[ Strategy ]

Crafting a compelling
B2B value proposition

With heaps of research and insights to build on, we set about creating early-stage concepts to communicate Booksy's B2B offering. Each one clear, appealing, and aligned with the brand's positioning.

We initially focused on key messages, before getting into the nuts and bolts of the recommended information architecture for Booksy's new global business website.

Develop, test
and validate

After developing and wireframing the concept, we were ready to put it in front of users. We ran eight concept testing sessions with two different user segments: solopreneurs and business entrepreneurs in the USA (Booksy's main focus).

Usability testing (UT) goals:

  • See if choosing the right product is clear and easy for users

  • Gauge people's general impressions of the new website

  • Check the visibility of important features on the site

  • Verify whether the site navigation is intuitive for users

  • Identify the site's strong and weak points

  • Invite ideas for improvements or extra features to upgrade the site

[ Design ]

Alluring design
with industry-wide appeal

Design matters. It's not just about how it looks, but how it works too. We applied a light, fresh and modern design to elevate Booksy's brand image.

  • Powerful value proposition

    Booksy have rapidly established themselves among the market leaders in their space. They know what they stand for, the value they bring, and how much their customers love them. So, where better to shout about it than the very top of their homepage?

  • Building trust with video testimonials

    From the very start, our new website was designed to inspire all who use it. And there’s no better inspiration than seeing your future self in the story of someone a few years ahead of you in the journey. Check out the personalised stories we crafted for each market.

  • Showcasing key features

    Booksy lets customers truly focus on their work. Whether you’re a solo hairdresser (Biz Lite) or the owner of a beauty salon chain (Biz Pro), the platform has you covered with a range of functions tailored to your goals.

  • Clear, transpartent pricing

    Building trust is also crucial. Booksy nurture long-term partnerships with their merchants – and it all starts with their pricing page for one-person companies and larger businesses. It’s clear and transparent, inspiring confidence in the user from the very first moment.

  • Global and multilingual website

    Many websites claim to be global – but ours really means it. It covers 14 markets, with scope for many more language versions to be added. And, what’s more, each localised version is led and managed by a dedicated team.

  • Personalised experience

    Like a great haircut, Booksy’s website is a completely personalised experience. We helped them create dedicated pages for specific merchant sub-segments. And we built them an advanced landing-page creator, so they can easily add pages of their own in future.

  • Ambassadors on a pedestal

    Community is at the heart of Booksy’s offering. Their ambassadors help to promote the platform and build a global buzz around the brand.
