Our team worked with Bank Grader to build a brand-new web app that is optimized for performance and marketing automation.

How Bank Grader increased their
marketing ROI
during busy seasons.

  • Mobile-first

    We built a snappy, mobile-friendly website that students without computers could benefit from. Having a mobile-first web app is essential for providing a seamless user experience for an app where most users are on mobile devices.

    • Optimized for mobile devices.
  • Optimized front-end

    Thanks to Next.js and Vercel, Bank Grader is now capable of handling thousands of requests and visitors per month without breaking, helping more students find the best loan offers.

    • Static front-end to handle thousands of users concurrently
  • Marketing automation

    We implemented marketing automation to help Bank Grader make informed decisions for their marketing campaigns with tools such as Google Ads, Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager.

    • Optimize marketing campaigns based on signals and automation.
  • Next.js for API integrations

    We created a service that fetches student loan data from colleges and banks using a third-party API that gives the loan data to the student based on the college they chose. Next.js provides several built-in API methods, making it easy to fetch data from external sources and manipulate it within your application.

    • Displaying up-to date data in real time without reducing performance thanks to Next.js' Serverless functions.
