Website Competitor Analysis
This is a dynamic, data-gathering process to examine the competition’s website, in regards to the messaging, tone of voice and call to action placements. It is essential to understand how competitors are making an impact here; how they communicate their stories, how they formulate compelling sales messages, and how they guide users through their website. This information is combined with the overall website / branding and design trends to formulate the initial website designs.
We will create and confirm a site-map accompanied by website wireframes, to enable us to consider a variety of layouts. This will ensure the best results from a UX perspective. These wireframes will be coupled with website mood boards, to begin to understand which layouts, functions and images that should be used across the website. We will create personas for different user types visiting the site and we can begin to understand their motivations, their expectations and how we can best cater to their needs.
We will then progress to high fidelity designs, where our developers work in tandem with our designers, strategists and the client to ensure the brand guidelines, key messages and photography are applied in accordance with the brand guidelines.
During the UX and design phases, wireframes & clickable prototypes are created for your feedback and user testing.
Content & Copywriting
We will apply our learnings from the planning and scoping phase and earlier brand research to produce a website messaging guide. This will highlight the key benefits for the consumer when associating with the brand. This guide will be used to prepare the copy for each page throughout the website, incorporating key brand messages and call to actions – all with the end-user in mind.
Multi User Capability
Your CMS allows us to create a variety of custom users roles, with different levels of access and capabilities. We will ensure the website can be updated from the back-end with ease, across the core pages, projects, blogs, news articles and other content as the website grows and evolves over time.
We approach website testing from multiple angles, covering usability, functionality, performance, compatibility, database and security testing.
Our rigorous testing process ensures user-friendliness, that features and the operational behaviour of the website correspond to its specifications, that the software used is compatible with various browsers and content is suitably compressed, optimising the website speed and overall performance.
Every website should be adaptive and evolve as time goes on. Not only should content be refreshed, but the performance of the website should also be monitored continuously.
We provide ongoing support by running health and performance checks, monitoring and optimising website speed, updates to plugins and API’s, updating core software and browser operating systems as well as ongoing bug fixes and health checks.
