How We Improved a Site’s User Experience to Increase Conversion Rate and Time on Page
Lancs has produced over 80% of the lead wool blankets used in United States nuclear power plants and U.S. Naval facilities today. They are one of the largest producers of flexible lead-free shielding products made from tungsten, bismuth, and iron. They carry a ready-to-ship inventory of standard products that include flexible shielding, lead wool blankets, glove bags, and sleeving.
Our goal was to focus on brand recognition and global exposure. To do this, we needed to create English, French, and Japanese sites. We also needed to adapt their existing long-form content, optimize it for the new sites, organize it more clearly, and improve page speed.
The first step 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 site’s users? How do they usually interact with websites? 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?
