HelpPay is an Australian profit-for-purpose fintech. They're on a mission to empower those who want to help others with a simple, transparent, and secure bill-payment platform. It also provides fuss-free help to those who need it. Following HelpPay's launch in 2021, it was clear that their website platform needed to evolve.

HelpPay's site was built by Revium, an Australian digital consultancy and a Storyblok Partner. They solve complex business challenges and create engaging experiences. Through a consultative approach, Revium’s team is able to understand the unique challenges of their clients. That same approach was what helped achieve the outstanding outcome for HelpPay. The new site was built with Storyblok in only 3 weeks. It saw a 146% increase in traffic and a 65% increase in engagement.

  • Quote from Rowan Wild, Co-Founder of HelpPay

    We chose Storyblok as our CMS because of its user-friendliness and flexibility. Also, it has the ability to seamlessly integrate with our website, mobile app, and social channels. It allows us to create and manage our digital content in a centralized location, saving us time and resources.

Moving from a placeholder-type approach to a fully featured site

HelpPay needed to move from a placeholder-type approach to a comprehensive website. A site that would act as a key tool to drive brand awareness and growth.

The previous site had a very clunky editor experience. It wasn't flexible when it came to creating new content - which HelpPay needed to do quite often. This resulted in delays and a frustrated HelpPay marketing team. So, the following objectives were outlined:

  • Build a modern, informative, and accessible website for HelpPay users, partners, and investors.
  • Select a flexible, cost-effective, and easy-to-use Content Management System (CMS). One that would allow them to build out content and pages themselves.
  • Enable the HelpPay marketing team to drive online growth and awareness.
  • Have a smooth and stress-free transition.

The 3-week-long transformation

Storyblok's CMS was the perfect match for HelpPay's goals. So, in August 2022, Revium began scoping out the key components required to rebuild the HelpPay site on Storyblok. Once these were identified, their development team dove straight into the build using the existing UI designs as a guide.

Revium’s development team utilized Nuxt.js as their development framework. During the build, a key integration of note was the integration with Segment by way of Customer.io. This handles all of HelpPay’s marketing automation workflows.

  • Quote from Chris Newton, Head of Front End Delivery at Revium

    Given the nature of Storyblok as a headless CMS, coupled with the flexibility that the platform offers, we completed our site rebuild in just over 3 weeks.

Revium’s team was able to work efficiently on this build. They first focused on completing the content-heavy elements, such as blog pages and post templates. This allowed the HelpPay team to add all the content to the site whilst Revium worked on refining the other components.

  • Quote from Caitlin Merritt, Senior Account Manager at Revium

    The Storyblok User Interface is simple and easy to run clients through. As a result, the marketing team at HelpPay was able to work in parallel with the Revium team to populate content during development.

Onboarding the HelpPay marketing team was very easy as Storyblok's CMS is intuitive and easy to comprehend. As an agency, Revium finds it effortless to run clients through the backend with Storyblok. The ability to play around with the components and pages on the site and see them in real time is what makes the difference.

    The platform has exceeded our expectations in terms of its flexibility and integration capabilities. It has made it much easier for us to update and distribute content across our website, mobile app, and social channels. We highly recommend Revium and Storyblok to anyone looking for a reliable and effective CMS.
