Empathy and Information Architecture: Improving Your Customer Experience With Thoughtful Digital Marketing

Information architecture is increasingly important in all aspects of business.  Search engines and users are placing the burden of information organization and structure on website owners and rewarding or penalizing brands according to their usability.  From domain structure to sitemap hierarchy to page layout, content architecture can directly affect lead generation, website engagement and conversion rates.

Given complex product, service and market structures for B2B organizations, these search and user demands can be even more challenging.  Not understanding best practices or performing diligent testing can quickly impede search engine rankings and user experience.  Learn the necessary steps required to properly architect your website’s content and data.
