Post-launch Optimisation

Once we deliver the final build, we don't just wash our hands of the project. What we suggest to most of our clients is our site monitoring and optimisation package so we can support you going forward. Our packages usually include:

Site Monitoring - we create quarterly reports that are tracked against business goals (KPIs). The purpose of these reports is to provide actionable data and insights to help the business make key changes and adjustments.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) - with access to your Google Analytics platform we can monitor performance and action insights. Our goal is to optimise content and increase site traffic.

Behavioural Tagging - based on an agreed set of KPIs we can tag your digital channels to track user behaviour. This will help us Identify barriers to completion and journey pain points. The goal is to see what we can do to improve visitor retention rate and favourable user sentiment.

A/B and Multi-variant testing - with data and insights gained from the business and our Site Monitoring, we can suggest content approaches and test against multiple hypotheses. The goal would be to determine which layouts, call-to-actions and design elements are most compelling to different user groups.

Content Strategy - using a combination of social listening, industry trend knowledge and SEO, we will be able to provide recommendations on how messaging and content could be improved and see whether the topics you're talking about are resonating with your audience.
