At the core, I am skilled at web development and online marketing strategy. Depending on the project I may outsource portions to field experts to ensure project quality and that it gets delivered on time and at budget. My repeat clients love that they can count on me to just get things done!
Why is it that so many gorgeous, responsive, pixel perfect websites built on cutting edge technology often fail while other plain-Jane looking websites happen to have great success at conversion, lead generation, sales, building a fan base or whatever else their goals may be?
The answer lies in the strategy employed to develop these sites. There is nothing wrong with creating a website that is a work of art in terms of visuals and user interface. However, without a strong development strategy that constantly tests the site's progress towards its goals, and ensures identifying and re-iterating on aspects that aren't delivering results, your expensive, well designed website will amount to no more than a resource drain.
Following are the key aspects of an effective web development strategy:Economy
Not every bell and whistle will add more value to your website than it costs to develop. Unless your budget is a blank cheque, launching with a fully decked out, high-end site is not ideal. It is smarter to start basic, build iteratively, strategically identifying development efforts that yield high returns and quickly dropping those that don't. Sound strategy has a much stronger correlation with successful websites than a big budget.Testing
Regular A and B testing, scrutinising analytics to identify traffic leak points and creatively re-iterating on the weak sections of the site is not every web designer's forté or interest. Though it is not always fun, it is always essential to develop a site with such diligence to ensure it has the best shot at thriving in a competitive market. The fun, after all is in the results.Research
A wealth of useful information likely awaits to be discovered through research of other players in your market space, the strengths and shortcomings of their website strategies. Forgoing this research means reinventing the wheel, going through painful mistakes that affect budget and development timeline. Leveraging this research on the other hand often translates to progressing several paces in a single leap, saving resources and increasing the potential and magnitude of success.
