Dr. Dre's Web Design Tips

Beats By Dre Web Design Lessons
A friend shared the impressive NEWSJACK Dr. Dre and his Internet markeing team pulled off last week. Beats By Dre (http://www.beatsbydre.com ) has some cool web design tricks to steal too such as:

* Consistent images across channels (the Richard Sherman image rode the crest of the wave created by his "controversial" statements after last Sunday's game).
* HUGE RED BUY NOW Call To Action on the home page.
* Hero moves but does so SLOWLY so it isn't jarring.
* They've programmed their Richard Sherman page so his picture matches to every style, something I bet the site does for all celebrity endorsements (cool and NEW).
* Their social buttons are a little low for my taste, but they are well labeled as the "Beats Army" and every major social net is there and they are robust and fresh on all social nets.
* I like how they handle the colors too via the small swatches.

All in all a great ecommerce site in support of one of the best NEWSJACKS I've seen (see my notes on Dr. Dre's multi-channel attack of the web here:   http://sco.lt/8bJiDJ

Future Of Web Design 2

Future Of Web Design 2 | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

Web 3.0's Whaam!
Just as Roy Lichtenstein’s Whaam! 1963 seemed to blow abstract painting off the walls web 3.0 will change everything we call "website design". After creating Future of Web Design (http://sco.lt/7r6zkf) Haiku Deck I realized some shots were fired but not enough.

Web 3.0 powered by a ubiquitous web for people and things with semantic intelligence changes how we create websites and Internet marketing. Math will be a future web designer’s friend. 

Websites will float based on predictive analytics and real time behavior. Behavior responded to with tested creative designed for personas and segments to CONVERT is more Google-like than anything web designers create now.

David Merrill's siftables are the best demonstration of how content will become intelligently self aware AND agnostic to the kind of hubificaiton web designers practice now.

http://youtu.be/JP0w9lZoLwU Siftables

Hubificaiton is about bringing THEM to US. APP-ificaiton is about creating agnostic widgets. Widgets easily placed anywhere (as Amazon's mini-cart widget demonstrates here: http://sco.lt/4iahNZ).

Web 3.0's mobile ubiquitous web will reversing hubification emphasis on traffic density (bring visitors into a hub). Distinctions will chante too. THEM and US will fade in favor of relevant experience (the commons). 

In this context CONVERSION becomes an extension of an experience instead of the other way around. We rarely shop / search for things merely for the pleasure of the search.

 

We may start with one goal in mind and end up achieving a different set of goals, goals created on the fly in real time based on how the web responds to our journey, but our process feels like US.

Predictive analytics, personas, segments and an increasing amount of tested creative controlled by math means our unique feeling of US or ME may continue to exist, but THEIR sense of our next behavior mean this is a distinction without a difference. 

If you fit a persona, that persona predicts what relevant content you need when the feeling of having Big Brother on your should could be overwhelming. Mutual benefit is why consumers won't revolt.

When websites convert 40% of their traffic, as Schwan's does now, their efficiency trumps density. Efficiency trumping density describes Web 3.0 perfectly.

Never underestimate the power of HUMOR or its application. Here are 100 funny 404 pages, the pages users get when something has gone wrong. The ability to turn a page that is FRUSTRATING into a funny gambit is the difference between a site that makes a few bucks and one that is worth millions.

Design for engagement means thinking about the customer at all times. Thinking about the customer means BEING the customer and not the Master Blaster Controler. Have fun and design fun in especially where its a surprise and you WIN.

Responsive Website Design & Web 3.0 [Infographic]

Responsive Website Design & Web 3.0 [Infographic] | WebsiteDesign | Scoop.it

Won’t it be simpler to have just a single website that could work everywhere? Responsive web design technology does exactly this.

With the gaining popularity of smartphones, More and more websites are accessed via mobile devices. Websites that aren’t optimized for mobile browsing scare away visitors. Responsive web design can be a solution to this problem. If done correctly, responsive web design doesn’t only provide a better mobile browsing experience, but it can also improve the loading time by optimizing the content for smartphones  Analysts at Morgan Stanley claim that the world is currently going through fifth technological revolution since the last 50 years. This one is based on the evolution of mobile internet. According to statistics, mobile Internet usage has been growing staggeringly over the past few years and is expected to overtake desktop Internet usage by the year 2013.

What is Responsive Web Design?

A website that is designed to established standards laid down for responsive web designing will be able to adopt its design and layout to fit the specifications of the device calling it. It does this by dynamically adopting to different screen sizes and by reformatting the positioning and look of the constituent elements of the website.

So what may appear to be a website with large images spread through three columns on a computer screen, will appear to have smaller images in a single column on a mobile screen. All of this does not need multiple codes written for each type of device. A single set of code which accepts various specification parameters from the device will do the job. CSS3 is used to give the generated website the desired look and feel.

Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com's insight:

Marty that is so right, just because you hit the "go live" button doesn't mean that you are done. Unfortunately many website owners stop there. The reasons can be for a number of things, lack of budget, of knowledge, or just simply thinking it's done. 


A great marketing company well watch the analytics and trends on the site (good or bad) and make suggestions to their clients.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, March 12, 2013 8:11 AM

Great piece about BOUNCE RATES and how to structure content to bring them down. Also great general idea - that having a website does not equal benefiting from the site. When the clueless create websites they can do more damage than good via bad tagging, poor meta data (especially titles) and bad structure producing high bounce rates and so never earning Google's trust. 

Don't think just because you finally got that website up it is doing you any GOOD (lol). Internet marketing requires a PRO to advise you at some point otherwise you fly the plain into the mountain and feel good about it all the way in.
