Effective and Evolving Website Redesign Project
Originally founded in Finland almost 30 years ago, Coverglass USA has been a pioneer in the Doors and Windows industry, with representation in over 25 countries worldwide. Coverglass USA frameless sliding glass door systems have been available in the states since early 2007, and they have since installed over 2,000 of our Frameless Sliding Glass Door Systems.
Coverglass USA initially came to smartboost to increase their social media presence. Upon reviewing their web analytics and business data, we found that their marketing was struggling on all fronts, and concluded that their audience needed much more than a social strategy. Instead, we decided to begin with a brand new website—one that is designed for their target markets and is optimized to convert—so we could be sure our efforts off-site would be able to convert on-site.
The first steps of this project was to develop our overall strategy. We had questions that needed to be addressed to be sure that we could design something effective. Who are the users of this site? How do they interact with websites generally speaking? How can we be sure that this new site is usable? What kind of content is going to help these users get from the early stages of the conversion process to the end?
To answer these questions we collected data from the client’s old website (heat mapping, analytics, etc.) and researched their past customers and competitors. From there, our findings gave us a better picture of who our users would be and gave us a guideline of our designs moving forward.
