The web development experts at Marcel Digital's mission was to completely redesign the website with the customer in mind both to give them a better user experience and more powerful decision-making information. Marcel Digital was also to revamp the backend administrative interface to give distributors more control over day-to-day operations and improve efficiency in order deliveries to customers.
Marcel Digital's in-depth analysis began with the data. As a Google Certified Partner in both Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager, we focused on where the website was seeing the biggest issues and prioritized our efforts to enhance the overall usability and structuring of the website's content. From there, we then leveraged user testing to help shape and influence our designs and development, soliciting user feedback to create a website experience that would engage the end user more effectively.
We then interviewed Seattle Sutton's distributors to see where their biggest obstacles were from an ordering and usability standpoint in the backend of the website. Armed with the Google Analytics data and user feedback we needed, Marcel Digital got to work on creating various designs that would better align Seattle Sutton's business goals with their customer's goals.
When it came to content and site structure, we focused on:
...content and web pages to help increase overall organic search performance and engagement. We then collaborated with Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating content team to create a prioritized list of content needs and created an editorial calendar with deadlines that would coincide with the development and launch of the new website.
Applying all of our research and user feedback resulted in a total redesign front-end layout with the user in mind. We focused on creating a streamlined approach to the new ordering and purchase process that removed the obstacles presented by the previous website. We also relieved distributors of many technical headaches given by the old back-end ordering functionality and created an intuitive, user-friendly dashboard where distributors could easily update orders, schedules, and customer information.
Marcel Digital also organized and structured content on the website in a logic fashion that was easy to navigate for users but also easy to crawl for search engines.
