Case study: how our redesign can affect your website

This summer we have redesigned and rebuilt our client’s website: Safety Driving School (SDA) Tsuruoka. Today, after some months from the launch of the new platform (that happened at the beginning of September) we have some statistics on the usage of the website by the users. We would like to show you the positive effect that our redesign had on the website, and therefore on the business.

First of all, we have detected a +22% in website users. This is probably related to the fact that faster and more modern websites are ranked higher by search engines, and this can drive more visitors from the search results.

Another important statistic is the bounce rate. The bounce rate is the percentage of visitors that leave your website after looking only at one page. If this percentage is high, it means that either your website is slow, or it’s not appealing or doesn’t offer the information the user was looking for. In fact, these factors make the user leave quickly and probably turn the attention to the website of a competitor.

With the new design of SDA, we were able to cut the bounce rate from 35% to just 2%. It means that 98% of the users now, after checking the first page (the one from which they landed on the website) are engaged in finding out more about the driving school.

It’s not all: we also have registered an increase in the number of pages visited by each user, from a 4.47 pages/user before the redesign, up to a 9.12 pages/user after the redesign. Thanks to the easy navigation and proper positioning of links and banners we were able to increase the engagement and appeal, bringing visitors to more areas of the website.

This is what a healthy website looks like, and this is also what your website can experience with a redesign. So, better give us a call!

Styling radio buttons

radio button or option button is a little circular element that allows the user to choose only one of a predefined set of mutually exclusive options. Each radio button is normally accompanied by a label describing the choice that the radio button represents.

Radio buttons were named after the physical buttons used on older radios to select preset stations – when one of the buttons was pressed, other buttons would pop out, leaving the pressed button the only button in the “pushed in” position.

If you stick with the default options, radio buttons look different on different browsers, and most of all they look disconnected from the graphic style of a website.  This is how radio buttons look by default in your browser:

Fortunately the styling of radio buttons became possible with the introduction of CSS3. There are literally hundreds of different ways you can style your CSS radio buttons and checkbox input fields. We have made a basic style in only CSS that serves as starting point for our projects’ radio buttons. We then experiment with color, style, and even functionality to make them completely customized and unique for each client.

Here is our HTML and CSS3 only styled radio buttons, compatibles with all browsers. Feel free to use the code.
