Traditional Web Design is Broken
Only 49% of website redesign projects finish and launch on time. (source)
The struggle with traditional web design is that almost immediately after a site is launched, the design and content begins to grow stale. You become trapped in a vicious cycle of designing a site, letting it stagnate for years, then redesigning it again a few years later.
This means you spend more money upfront for less return down the line.
With Growth-Driven Design (GDD), your website is never left stagnant
Instead of a “set it and forget it” approach, GDD actively targets your users’ pain points to solve them and create a streamlined, modern website experience. In traditional web design, user experience is an important element but not the primary goal of a redesign. GDD is a new approach based entirely on user experience and hard data.
88% of online consumers are less likely to return to a website after a bad experience.

The Benefits of Growth-Driven Design

Growth-Driven Web Design Process
With Growth-Driven Design (GDD), your website is never left stagnant. Instead of a “set it and forget it” approach, GDD actively targets your users’ pain points to solve them and create a streamlined, modern website experience. In traditional web design, user experience is an important element but not the primary goal of a redesign. GDD is a new approach based entirely on user experience and hard data.
Because this is a more fluid process, there are a few steps that build into the preparation, but then it becomes a continuous flywheel that repeats steps and spins endlessly.
Phase One: Preparation
Your Growth-Driven Web Design project will be based off the Strategic Gameplan described above that defines your goals, existing website and buyer personas. In this document you’ll find user experience research and recommendations from our team.
During discovery, our two teams will meet to discuss your project and timelines, priorities, and get feedback from each other. This will be a brainstorming session where we take what we’ve learned in the strategy, and compile a list of items that need attention.
We will, collectively, determine the 20% of items that will make 80% of the impact, and those items will guide your launch pad website build.
Once you’ve given us the go-ahead, our team will get to work creating a functional launch pad website for your GDD project. You’ll be given a sitemap to review pages, wireframes to sign off on look-and-feel and finally an interactive but hidden mock-up of your site you can dig into. At each step, you’ll be asked for your feedback and approval.
When you’ve decided on a design, our team will begin the implementation step: actually building the site. We’ll source content either from your existing website or that we’ve written as part of your program and plug it into your design.
Your launch pad website is released to the world, functional, but ready to be expanded and improved.
Then we set up qualitative and quantitative data collection on your website to get data from users around reaching your company’s goals, make sure the fundamental assumptions about your users are correct, and test marketing hypotheses.
Phase Two: Continuous Improvement
First, we prioritize and plan the steps for each action. Then we build each incremental change into the site.
We make each change live. Both steps 1 and 2 happen during 2-week periods called sprint cycles.
Once the change(s) are live, we monitor them to see how users on the site respond. This stage is the most important in the Growth-Driven Design process.
We put our findings into a monthly report, in which we analyze the data, track progress towards annual goals, and recommend next steps.
Monthly Client Meeting
We meet with you to discuss our findings and recommendations, as well as discuss upcoming action items.
Each quarter, we host a brainstorming session. During this session, both of our teams lay out ideas, that are then broken down into actionable steps. And this takes us back to Step 1: Build.
