We have some pretty awesome news for you. We are now a professionally certified HubSpot Academy Growth-Driven Design Agency.
In this post, I'll explain exactly what this means for our future web design clients, and what changes to expect in the coming months here at Magnet4Blogging Media.
During the half-term of the school holidays, I decided to invest some of my time away from projects to focus on online training.
This has been something which I've always planned to do but struggled to find the time.
Anyway, I am currently enrolled in a small handful of online courses to help me achieve several things in my business -
One of the courses that I was able to complete last week was the HubSpot Growth-Driven Design Agency Certification course.
The GDD Agency Certified Course is a free course created by HubSpot Academy's Luke Summerfield.
The course's objective is to teach web design agency members a new and more "cost-and-time" effective method of growth-driven web design that focuses on delivering results and promoting the growth of a business and website.
Although the course is geared more for web design agencies, I really think freelancers will find this course super valuable too.
The GDD methodology is broken down into three key stages.
To learn more about how we use the GDD method in our WordPress web design services, click here.
We are leaving behind the broken traditional method of web design and focusing on the GDD methodology for our client's website design and redesign projects.
This means, instead of building "set and forget" WordPress websites based purely on assumptions and guesswork, we'll be more focused on designing and building websites based on real user data and analytics.
After the initial and "all-important" Strategy stage, we'll aim at creating a launch pad website in less time than it takes to create a website through traditional web design.
The launchpad site will essentially be a better version of our client's existing website, however, it will not be the final product, but rather a platform that we can work on in the Continuous Improvement stage and focusing on driving results and promoting growth.
Now again, I've only touched lightly of what you can expect from working with Magnet4Blogging as a certified GDD agency.

Over the next few months, we have our work cut out to transition from being a traditional web design service provider to a fully geared up growth-driven design agency.
Here's the fun part:
I personally plan on creating a powerful case study to catalog the process of transitioning and redesigning our website using the GDD method.
The case study post will not be published until we are in the Launchpad stage, but, it will hopefully provide you with valuable insights and a better understanding of the method and process of Growth-Driven Design.
This is, of course, wonderful news for both ourselves and YOU as our "valued" web design customer, whether you're completely new or coming back to use our services again.
Being a GDD certified agency means we can really focus and work harder on providing a rock-solid web design service for all types of businesses and of all sizes. I'm excited about this opportunity and I can't wait to get started, so let's do this!
