Profile of Matt Lodge - Digital Marketing Analyst

Matt Lodge: Strategist

WHO AM I?

I am a Strategist at Seafoam Media. It’s my job to convert measurable data into actionable results for our clients.

MY MISSION AT SEAFOAM:

I want to ensure that our clients have every advantage possible in a competitive digital landscape. My mission is to use data-driven approaches to create a seamless marketing plan that grabs customers, no matter how they’re searching or browsing.

WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO:

I’ve always loved solving problems. Diving into data and numbers to find ways to move the needle for our clients creates unique challenges and gives me the opportunity to find new solutions to age-old problems.

MY QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE:

Prior to joining Seafoam Media, I worked at a direct marketing agency in New York City for 4 years. I learned classic methods for reaching customers and growing brands.

I also worked for the largest online chess website, Chess.com, for 4 years. I worked extensively on growing our online presence along with managing our analytics for our streaming video content.

IN MY FREE TIME…

I play a lot of chess, despite being deeply mediocre at it. I’m in a bowling league, despite being deeply mediocre at that, as well. I love spending time with my fiance and my dog, which I am fantastic at.

St. Louis Web Design Agency

When so much of your brand’s reputation lives online, your website is everything — a first impression, a compendium of knowledge relating to your industry, and the core of why your company exists.

Whether your customers have searched for your business by name or stumbled upon your site while looking for a product or service you sell, your site’s main job is to invite these consumers in, educate them about what they’re looking for, and lead them down the funnel to conversion. If you fail to capture their attention, they will move on to the next company that provides a better user experience. That’s where we come in.

Why Seafoam

Your website should consider your customer’s core expectations and pain points. That’s why our team approaches web design as one of the most important parts of your overall marketing strategy.

Seafoam takes the website process seriously. We’ll guide you through five phases: strategy, design, development, testing, and launch. From start to finish, our teams will collaborate to ensure your website will be an effective tool for your brand.

  • No shortcuts. Ever.
  • Customer-centric strategy and design drive our decision-making.
  • Clean, fast, and usable. That’s our motto.

How We Build the Best Website for Your Customers

As a St. Louis web design agency, the team at Seafoam Media looks deeper than the surface design and functionality of every website we build. We dive into the psyche of our clients’ users, leaning heavily on their perspectives, needs, and journeys to guide our designs. This strategy helps us cultivate sites that appeal to users, both aesthetically and functionally.

The Psychology of Web Design

Then we take our designs a step further by injecting elements of psychology into the sites we build. We think about the small details, like the emotions that certain colors and shapes invoke, or how page flow and animations can add delight to the user experience. Each design component is an opportunity to hone in on customers’ thought processes and guide them to invest in your brand.

How We Build the Best Website for Your Brand

Having a website that appeals to your customers is only one half of the design and development equation. Your website should also cater to your needs, goals and vision, as well!

Before we begin to outline your website, our web design and development team will sit down with yours to discuss the elements that drive your brand. We’ll ask you about your top competitors, how you feel your website should function, who your main users are, how you would like these users to engage with your site, and more. Then we’ll have you fill out a quick survey that helps us understand your design preferences so that we know which visual elements you enjoy and which ones you don’t.

By the end of our meeting, our website design & development team will have a more well-rounded idea of how you would like your website to look, feel, and function, as well as why you chose these elements. As we begin to build your website, our process includes several touch-points that keep you up to date with our progress. There will also be opportunities for us to add any requested tweaks and polish to the design as necessary. This journey is truly a partnership between our team and your brand; we intend to work closely with you every step of the way.
