After several months of development, we are proud to release our long awaited totally redesigned corporate website: http://www.worksforweb.com/. This redesigned website provides more detailed information about our company activity and services, and features in-depth information about our classifieds products: iRealty, iAuto and iLIster. So why did we decide to make the changes and what did we do to improve the site?
We created our classifieds products from scratch. It was a long way from simple PHP script to sophisticated yet easy-to-use classifieds engine capable to run large classifieds portals. Our old product sites grew up with the products step by step, from enhancement to enhancement. And one day we realized that our old product sites cannot serve the needs of our top-notched products and it does not reflect our organisation’s current market position. We know that we have to evolve to ensure we can deliver what customers need today. A web site redesign was a great opportunity to evaluate where we are today and where we want to be in the future.
At the beginning of the redesign we outlined the main purposes of the site as follows:
- Enhance customer perception of our classifieds products and WorksForWeb services
- Ensure an online presence in the face of similar moves by competitors
- Provide customers with the ability to view the product demo on-line
- Provide an opportunity to inform people about classifieds scripts in which they may be interested, thus enhancing customer service and increasing sales.
Several months of hard work of designers and developers allow us to present you our new redesigned site. So what’s the value?
We tried to make the web site well presented and provide it a professional appearance. Now the site appears to contain most of the information a customer would require. We use the language and visual cues in a manner that is both internally consistent and consistent with general practice, so our customers do not have to learn any new techniques in order to use the site successfully.
One of the most important challenges was the necessity to consolidate four sites in one (three products sites and one company site) and retain the navigation through the site clear and user-friendly. We worked hard to design 4-level menu. The 1-st level menu presents our company, products and services, the 2-nd level menu navigates you through the scripts and addons available. The 3-d level menu guides you through the information about each product: iAuto, iRealty and iLister, product features, portfolio, demos, documentation, etc. And finally the 4-th level menu (it’s displayed in the right block of the site unlike the previous three menu levels which are located under the site header) invites you to look deeper into the detailed info about product editions and detailed functionality descriptions. If necessary, a site map is available.
We designed the site with our valued customers in mind so we did our best to provide all necessary means of communication. We encourage you to contact us through the contact forms specially designed for pre-sales questions, submitting testimonials and feature requests and general suggestions, besides you can call us or chat via Skype.
We created the site with love and desire to make your surfing through our site and searching for the information smooth and problemless. Our designers tried to make the site attractive and pleasant to look at. You are our most severe judges and the best usability consultants. We are eager to listen to your opinion about our efforts regarding the site redesign. We would like to offer you to fill in a short survey on the site redesign. Your feedback is highly appreciated!
