UX Research. Discovery And Strategy
Here is a quick and easy video to get you caught up on what UX is, the strategy behind it and why UX Research is a very important part of Website Development. Also, it touches on the discovery and strategy part of this phase. This video is from the Viking Blogger Demo: Strategy (UX) Phase and originally appears here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQQBBAi1j40
Matchbox Design Group starts our web development process by doing research in order to understand persona needs. We look for a unique proposition for each individual client. We also take a look at your current performance metrics. The approach here at Matchbox Design Group is completely based on our industry experience mixed with our data-driven analysis and market research.
Information Architecture And Messaging
Here is a quick video from Lynda.com that explains what Information Architecture is. After you watch this you can understand how messaging is a part of this.
At Matchbox Design Group we are always looking for information pathways. We want to find these pathways to help your users become more informed and ultimately convert. We learn what your business goals are and focus on messaging that focuses on simplicity. Matchbox wants to cut through the excess clutter and spend the most time focusing on your business goals.
Matchbox Design Group is ahead of every new technology that appears on the market. We believe this sets us apart in the development community because we are always learning new design and development software, techniques and technologies to stay ahead of our competition. We do this for St. Louis as well as the rest of the country. Here is a video about design trends and what’s new in 2017. This video can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROnclCjTye4
Technology, Planning, And Strategy
Take a look at this video about the technology, planning and strategy portion of website development. This video is from 2014, however, the theme still applies very well here. You can find the original video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpcaCW85eI0
Interactivity, Integration, And Added Value
Matchbox believes that adding value to a site doesn’t necessarily mean adding bells and whistles to a site, just to add them. We want your site to be the best for the user. This is where we take interactivity, decide how it integrates with your website or brand. We then decide if this adds value to your website. Here is a video about interactivity in website development and how using it just right to add value. Video first found at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZEbr5OtOwk
Launch and Support
During launch and support, Matchbox turns the keys over to the client and lets them run free. The client has employees, friends, family and anyone else they would like to file through the site. They are looking for good things, bad things and do their best to try and “break” the site. There is not a good video to share for this part of the website development process. Maybe this is a video we should make ourselves.
Just know that during the launch is when everything comes together and it’s go time. Not only do we give client’s the keys to run free during this time period, but we also provide guidance. We offer the client ongoing support, help them with strategies and teach them how to make simple changes when needed. We pride ourselves on being client-centric, providing ongoing guidance when needed. Most web development clients stay on as SEO clients so their new website can start to rank well in Google.
The Website Development Process At Matchbox Conclusion
Matchbox Design Group makes the website development process efficient because we begin with a clean bug-free code base that is developed internally. Why? Because we want to find you the best solutions including cloud-based solutions. We do our development this way to reduce a few things which include project cost, the time it takes us to develop the site and to make sure you get a quality product. We will have several collaboration meetings with the client on the overall designs and make sure the website we are building aligns with the client’s goals and of course usability. Our end goal is to make the CMS or content management system as easy as possible for the client to maintain. This is so the client doesn’t waste time and money later on with small updates. It keeps you focused on your business.
