Sun and Moon Psychic Readings is a local psychic reader aiming to establish its online presence through the development of a brand-new website. As a Atlanta web design company, our responsibility is to create a seamless user experience that facilitates intuitive navigation, builds trust, and encourages users to engage with the psychic services offered.
The product is a new website for Sun and Moon Psychic Readings. The website will serve as the primary platform for users to explore, book, and receive psychic readings. It will feature comprehensive profiles of psychics, their areas of expertise, availability, and pricing information. The website will offer a smooth appointment booking process, secure payment options, and a user-friendly interface to enhance the overall experience.
The estimated project duration is four weeks.
Sun and Moon Psychic Readings recognizes the need for a strong online presence to attract and retain customers. The core problem is the absence of a functional website, which limits their ability to reach a wider audience and offer their services in a user-friendly manner. The lack of an online platform prevents potential customers from accessing psychic readings conveniently and inhibits the growth of the business.
The goal of this case study is to design and develop a user-centered website for Sun and Moon Psychic Readings from scratch. The aim is to create an engaging and intuitive online experience that addresses user pain points, establishes credibility, increases customer satisfaction, and drives conversion rates.
