Growth Driven Design

Decisions Backed By Data

You can improve your website without having to do a full-scale redesign every 2-3 years. The secret sauce? Growth Driven Design, or GDD. 

Incremental Improvements

Without the Guessing Game

Until the last few years, it was impossible for anyone to guarantee a website could perform to its desired ability. Decisions for the user experience (UX) were made on the pretense of a designer’s experience, and what he/she saw worked in the past.

Sound a bit unsettling? It should, but that no longer needs to be your reality when diving into website design.

GDD uses your website’s current performance as a baseline to make intelligent, data-based decisions. This incrementally improves UX and drives more conversions over time.

Here’s the thought process behind it:

1Website Sweep

We audit your existing website to see how your buyer personas interact

2Action Items

Determinations are made based on existing data and customer input

3Execution

We apply a change (and A/B test if applicable) to see which is more effective

4Implementation

The changes are made (usually we stick to 1 at a time so we can isolate the variable)

5Monitoring

Time passes, and we monitor the analytics

6Tweaking & Rehashing

Once a few weeks to a month passes, the analytics are observed to see about future improvements / determinations

GDD VS. Other Design Methods

As proponents of data-based decisions, see for yourself why we’ve enlisted GDD in our inbound design tool bag:

  •  
  • GDD
  • Traditional
  • Customer Persona Build Out
  • Cost Effective
  • Design Influenced by User Data
  • -
  • Consistent Website Optimization Focusing on ROI
  • -
  • Maximizes Your Inbound Marketing Results
  • -
  • Works Closely with Marketing & Sales on a Monthly Basis

The Method to the Madness

A full cycle of these incremental changes happen monthly. So now you’re probably wondering what to expect from a processes standpoint. It goes as follows:

1
strategize
Strategize

Here, at the beginning phase, we look at your buyer personas’ needs and pain points. We use these as our strategy-based action items since  an optimal UX is essential to make effective and qualified conversions. We also strive to get a better understanding of your users by conducting interviews, utilizing surveys, and taking inventory of any website patterns.

2

Develop

In this second step, the aforementioned action item(s) are implemented on the website. This builds your repertoire of lead generation tools and marketing assets quickly.

3

Analyze and Learn

Based on what’s been collected and developed, we analyze and evaluate your website’s performance based on the “Develop” stage changes. Consider us taking a magnifying glass to your website so it’s tested for usefulness, funnel flow, user retention, personalization and ease of use. Is it performing better than before? If not, we look into why and how we can implement a change that will drive the right conversion path.

Rinse and Repeat

This is the final step where everything is compiled from steps 1-3. Based on the activity and conversion performance, we generate more action items to compound improvements and craft the best version of your website possible at the time.

The Fruits of Our GDD Labor

If there’s one thing we’ve learned as an agency, it's that data doesn’t lie.  

We use empirical observations (such as heat mapping) as the basis for our incremental improvements and determinations.
