The Pain of an Underperforming Website

  • “38% of people will stop engaging with a website if the content or layout is unattractive” 
    Design
    It takes 0.05 seconds for visitors/users to form an opinion about your website and determine whether they’re going to stay or leave. So your website’s content and layout has to entice your visitors enough to want to stay on the site and read/ learn more about your products and services.– (Source: Adobe)

  • “Users spend an average of 5.59 seconds looking at a website’s written content”
    Written Content
    This is not a lot of time to soak in all the written content on your website’s homepage.
    
    The key to this is to utilize a concept called “progressive disclosure,” where people aren’t bombarded with content they don’t need right away, but they are still easily able to find it and other information by digging deeper into the website. (i.e. in the main navigation menu)– (Source: Eye-tracking study by Missouri University of S&T)

  • “Judgements on a company’s credibility are 75% based on the company’s website design.”
    Company Judgment
    It’s 2021, and your website serves as a window into your company, thus it needs to exude trust and credibility. Otherwise, you run the high risk of handing your potential customers over to your competitors with better-designed websites. – (Source: Web Credibility Research from Stanford)

1.Research
1.Research

Discovery + User Research

Getting to know you (and your users) We start by building our understanding of your business. We speak to key stakeholders and dive deep into data you already have, including the performance of any existing site. Our goal is to start research on your users as soon as possible. This might involve speaking to your customers, creating or analyzing quantitative research like surveys, or performing user testing on the existing site.

 

 

2. Strategy
2. Strategy

Envisioning a site that means business

A website strategy aligns the website’s proposed structure, content, and features with business goals. It’s where we make high-level decisions about the direction of the website. During strategy, an experienced website strategist collaborates with UX, design, and content specialists to conduct research, identify challenges and opportunities, and make recommendations. At the end of the phase, we present a strategy document that guides the creation of the website and sets the tone for your project

 

 

3. Planning
3. Planning

Strategic direction into a blueprint for the site

In planning, our information architects and UX designers turn strategic direction into a blueprint for the site. Planning is also where we identify the site’s technical requirements and specifications. The first key deliverable is a sitemap, which shows the structure and hierarchy of the site’s pages. Next come wireframes – low-fidelity, black and white designs that show each page template’s essential structure. These deliverables are supported by as much user research as we can conduct – we’re passionate about getting our concepts in front of users in order to test and refine them.

Bringing the website to life

Design is where the hard work really starts to pay off. We begin with an exploratory – as the name suggests, we explore a range of possibilities with you, getting a feel for how to represent your brand. Some of our clients have strict brand guidelines, while others are looking for guidance on how to define or reimagine their brand – we’re equally comfortable working with both. The deliverables for the design phase are full-color mockups of each template, which build on the wireframes created during planning. Each mockup is presented to your team for detailed feedback as we go, starting with the homepage. And since a fully responsive design is non-negotiable, we design separately for desktop, mobile, and tablet, optimizing every element and interaction for each device.

Marketing

We’re an end-to-end website development agency, so we are more than capable of handling your digital strategy, information architecture, website design, and content creation. We begin planning early for the features we know the site will need, so that we can scope development appropriately. And we architect and design the website with an understanding of the unique capabilities of the platform the site will be built on.
