Redefining performance for Matinée

Matinée Multilingual had been let down with a website redesign that left their site slow, badly affecting their search ranking and user experience. We helped them make quick wins to improve performance and SEO, now we’re undertaking an agile redesign that will look good and work blazingly fast.

We gave Chris a challenging brief to develop a fairly complex multi-country and multi-language website which we could control and he not only delivered exactly what we wanted but exceeded our expectations. Dealing with a team of 3 IT professionals and two psychs you would need to be on top of your game and Chris certainly is that. We would recommend Chris unreservedly.

Time is of the essence

Matinée is a leading voice-over agency, subtitling company and translation agency, with over 25 years of experience in the language versioning and localisation industry. Maintaining their search ranking is incredibly important to the business, so they needed to take action quickly when this began to suffer following a redesign. Their search partners, Ditto Digital, recommended they get in touch with us.

We ran a Technical Business Benchmark that highlighted multiple issues, the main being that the new site had been built on top of the old site, bringing with it all of the issues the site rebuild was expected to resolve. Ultimately, it was far too slow and didn’t work well across browsers.

Quick wins, long-term improvements

Understandably, Matinée Multilingual were incredibly frustrated that their website rebuild hadn’t delivered what was promised. Even more frustrating was that the long-term solution is another rebuild. However, we were able to make some instant improvements to improve performance – helping them maintain their SEO and user experience.

We’ve  now worked alongside the SEO team and a designer to build a super fast, beautiful bespoke site that will put them ahead of their competition. So as not to repeat past mistakes, we testing to optimise speed at every step of the design process – keeping it lean and mean.
