Providing multi-website maintenance and on-demand development services for publishing giant, Bauer Media.
With a focus on publishing editorial content, Bauer was also maintaining the websites of each publication, ensuring they were operating as expected and staying fresh and up-to-date.
The Bauer team didn’t have the internal capacity to update and manage its publications’ sites. It needed the ability to maintain the three websites, add new features when necessary and keep up with the latest in UI/UX, design, and marketing best practices.
An additional problem was that the sites used advertising from various platforms, and the team needed to make sure they weren’t interfering with each other.
On top of bug fixes, backend maintenance, and ensuring ads work correctly, the C-Labs team continues to perform minor UI/UX updates, add new features, and continually refine their general usability.
In an update to the website’s navigation bar, C-Labs’ UI Design team altered the style to make it more colorful and easier to use. The team also devised a new system of colors to ensure accessibility for all users. They increased page speed as well, making sure the site was optimized for maximum performance.
In keeping with today’s best practices, the team continues to add new features. The CemtrexLabs team implemented elements such as an infinite scroll on all articles to encourage editorial consumption. A newsletter sign-up band was added to increase readership and aid in digital marketing efforts. These additions help to increase the length of each session, while also quietly modernizing the websites.
To ensure the different ads were all functioning correctly, our India team relied on proxy servers based in the US. They made sure that none of the ad scripts were interacting with each other, and that they were all fully implemented without issue.
The three websites – First for Women, Soaps in Depth and Woman’s World – are now easier to update and change, and also provide stronger user experiences all around. The CemtrexLabs team continues to work with Bauer to make sure every site is reaching its full potential, maximizing advertising revenue, and always a joy for readers to visit.
