What makes an O8 website different?

Every decision we make is data-backed. You don't just get beautiful designs – you get workable solutions that drive business value. We are truly user-centric and customer-focused, basing our designs on neuromarketing and conversion optimization research. We do user testing, pull insights from analytics, implement surveys, look at heat maps, and watch "mouse movement recordings" of people trying to use websites. We utilize our holistic digital innovation opportunity (DIO™) process to enhance your messaging, shift customer behavior, and convert visitors using CRO and brain-based research. In short, we test our designs to ensure that they are highly-usable and actually working the way they are intended to.

Our Competitive Analysis Process

We look into your biggest competitors to ensure your design is not only beautiful but competitive in that it meets strategic needs for your differentiation in the market. The design must also follow a content strategy that allows you to compete for organic search traffic (SEO). Knowledge is power, and knowing how you compare can be used to develop new initiatives to enhance your overall competitive position.

  • Competitive Design Analysis

    First we look at your competitors through a design lens. What design patterns are they using? How can you stand out and be different?

  • Competitive SEO Analysis

    Next we examine your competitors using our SEO toolset. What are they ranking for? Which keywords? Your design ultimately should allow you to tell strategic stories that also rank competitively.

  • UX Exploration

    During every step of the design phase, we walk through the user experience, ensuring best practices, and the ability for you to communicate your message in the most effective way possible.
