I think there is value in her talking to someone in the ideal role that she wants. Consider not only the role but the firm too as PM's roles differ between firms. A PM at an agency has different responsibilities than a PM at an engineering-first tech company.
I would suggest using a second server/subdomain.
For instance, one could be design-v1.yourdomain.com and the other can be something like design.yourdomain.com. The V1 server will be consistent but you can update the non-V1 server by building the GitHub branches you're actively working on.
FullStory, HotJar or Inspectlet are all a tool in understanding users post-implementation. I use it in combination with analytic tools and A/B tests to understand the why to the what we see in analytics and tests.
At my company, we saw that users were dropping off on the first step of a multi-step checkout flow for a ecommerce site. Initially we thought that the user was having a problem with something on that first step. However, after looking at the recordings, we were noticing that users were using the checkout flow as a product details page. The user would click between the shopping page and the checkout page to compare the products.
So instead of working on the checkout page, we decided to build a product details page. That allowed the users to get the details they wanted and conversion rates went up as a result.
I believe that you should focus on the things that are the biggest point of friction in your current projects. So to that effect, I'm trying to establish stronger institutional reliance on user research where I work, develop more confidence in my copy writing, and build a foundation of Framer assets to incorporate that into our process easier and faster.
Thanks for the advice. I went with it and we're now implementing a version of it. So thanks!
I'd say that's more indicative of Utah than the profession of design. It's hard (but not impossible) to have a diverse company there because it's not a very diverse place.
Some nice stuff once you get past the home page. Yay horizontal scrolling.
Oh this is lovely! Thanks! <3 <3 <3
