ArchiAdvisor – Guide for the architecture of houses and buildings

With the relative success of Architecte de Bâtiments and Architecte de Maisons and their tens of thousands of visitors each month, a new English version to guide people through the architecture of houses and buildings has just been released to tackle the demand of information from the international market in English.

Having launched the two websites in French in 2012 and 2013 and recently tested new ways to monetize them through e-commerce, the idea to translate, adapt and update their contents in English for a larger audience was finally implemented. Through a renewed branding and contents while reusing some of their responsive design, ArchiAdvisor is now available to guide project owners through the architecture of their houses and buildings.

Architecte de Maisons : Guide for the architecture of houses in France

Following the relative success of Architecte de Bâtiments in the niche of the architecture of buildings in France, and to leverage the experience acquired in its making together with the strong ties with James Bansac Architects, a new digital venture had been in strategic conception phase for a while.

Having agreed on the terms of a partnership with James Bansac Architects in mid 2013, Fluorcom / EYE3 GROUP launched the works to create a new website, contents and responsive design to provide useful information and examples to people planning to build their house in France through the intervention of an architect.

A new responsive design that not only enhanced the display of text and images on all devices, but user experience in general, bringing additional constraints to the model of Architecte de Bâtiments was thus implemented. Thus was born Architecte de Maisons, a guide for the conception and construction of houses in France (only available in French), which was officially launched in November 2013.

Together with the necessary presentation of various technical, legal and architectural information, conveniently illustrated with numerous pictures of the gorgeous houses realized by James Bansac Architects, this new design became a new standard that would later be applied to the initial model, through a complete redesign that is much more modern, but now also responsive.

Tackling the niche of the architecture of houses in France, that is very close, and sometimes crossing that of the architecture of buildings in France, through the creation of various textual and visual contents, also allows Fluorcom to expand its knowledge in the digital communication and marketing for architects and architecture, and more specifically for the French market.

Several inbound marketing actions have been engaged and are now being conducted to futher enhance the reach of Architecte de Maisons, especially through SEO and on social networks and particularly through Architecte de Maisons’ twitter account that echoes useful French news, information and tips to conceive, build and live in a great house in France.

Architecte de Bâtiments : Guide for architecture of buildings in France

In early 2012, the French architect agency Agence Laurent Bansac Architecte was going through a very difficult period, as most other architecture agencies in France. Client of Fluorcom, for various digital communications services, the architecture agency needed to find new ways to reach potential new clients, so a new digital project was to be conceived with this goal in partnership with Fluorcom / EYE3 GROUP.

Leveraging the architecture agency’s expertise in conception and construction of buildings as well as the knowledge of Fluorcom in digital marketing, a new venture was created with the objective of offering useful information about all the aspects of the architecture of buildings in France, and for the people that could be interested, a possibility to obtain a quotation for their buildings projects.

Thus was born Architecte de Bâtiments, a guide for the conception and construction of buildings in France (only available in French).

Although this media website is quite simple, a lot of time and attention has been dedicated to create very useful contents to naturally drive a lot of traffic to the site. This editorial strategy has also been enhanced by a rigorous ongoing SEO service that following the Google guidelines on all technical, editorial and marketing fronts.

Having been published in early May 2012, Architecte de Bâtiments comes as a quite successful project with regards to the audience numbers, validating and consolidating Fluorcom’s skills in inbound marketing (production of quality content + digital content marketing), that ultimately harvest numerous requests for buildings quotations for the Agence Laurent Bansac Architecte.

As of February 2013, according to Google Analytics, the site attracts more than 7000 visits per month, for 6000 unique visitors, including almost 5000 in France, although the number of articles is still quite low.

As more contents shall be added and inboud marketing channels reinforced, after the initial launch phase, more ambitious goals are set in numbers of visitors, and qualified requests for quotations harvested, to further confirm the solidity of the project, both as a popular and financial success, and an independant venture with strong ties to both Agence Laurent Bansac Architectes and Fluorcom.
