A Personalized Approach to Websites
InMotion Realty, a family-owned realty company based in Hastings, Minnesota, needed a website refresh after recognizing their current site was outdated and bloated with too much content. Neuger Communications Group created a mobile-friendly, streamlined design that provides a modern twist on the website.
We developed InMotion Realty’s original website for them several years ago, which had, over time, become bloated with too much content and appeared outdated compared to competitors.
The Communications Challenge
We needed to ensure that InMotion Realty’s new website reflected a more modern feel but still respected the integrity of their brand.
Additionally, the number of pages on the site needed to be streamlined substantially, but it was important that none of the overall meaning was lost by cutting down the amount of content.
Though we were familiar with the site and the company’s objectives having worked together previously, this time we adopted a more individualized approach, focusing on personal connections and allowing a simplified experience to help users get in touch more quickly.
We began by auditing the old version of the website, revisiting and updating user personas, looking into user behavior and flow and wireframing a more contemporary design.
InMotionRealty.com features an easy-to-use property search function, helpful content organized for both homebuyers and sellers, vibrant imagery and multiple ways to get in touch. It now serves as an information hub for users seeking to learn more and personally connect with InMotion’s realtors as they look to buy or sell their home.
Our approach to this website’s design – putting personal connections at the forefront – met one of the company’s main business goals: to differentiate themselves from larger, more corporate realty sites.
By cutting down the number of pages and reducing the amount of content, users have access to a more efficient navigation experience with clear calls to action that guide them through the site to explore more.
The new website inspired the design for an accompanying realty brochure, ensuring cohesion and consistency in InMotion Realty’s cross-channel branding efforts.
