A phased Django web development service approach leads to greater success
Teenager Startups is an immersive media & networking platform that showcases pre-teens and teenage entrepreneur stories to the world, helps them connect with angel investors(teengels) and provide exceptional content to promote entrepreneurship at young age in form of featured stories and curated contents.
When Teenager Startups contacted Cogdina they had a functional website that they had outgrown. It was a complicated new approach they were bringing to the media industry, and the website didn’t educate the marketplace well enough. They needed a more polished design. And they had some new ideas for their service that required custom online functionality. Our first step? Defined a phased approach to get the new and one of the best django websites out working in the market in the short term while strategically adding functionality upgrades over time.
What worked best in this project?
“We knew from our first meeting that the Teenager Startup team was full of ideas for growth and just needed the resources to help bring those ideas to market,” notes Cogdina President. “They instantly understood the value of strategic planning and wanted to make sure we carefully considered both marketing and product development needs.”
We started by developing audience personas and let that market knowledge guide our first phase: establishing a new site architecture and design. Phase one was focused on the front-end media site of Teenager Startups and included a complete redesign with custom graphics and responsive designs as well as new content that both educates the marketplace and details the benefits of their service.
Phase two ran consecutively and focused on the user experience and functionality of the product. Teenager Startups website is more than just a marketing tool, it is where their service resides. Our work in phase two has extended across the year with several new releases of priority upgrades to help make it easier for their viewers to search, read, listen to podcasts and participate in the marketplace..
Tools and Results
Both Cogdina and Aman (Co-Founder of Teenager Startups) consider the project to be a success. That is why we still work helping him shape the product to this day.
