Isomorphic Web Apps and what Digital Marketers should know about them

Back in the day all marketers wanted from their frontend developers were nice websites, which worked in any browser. Frontend developers managed to get the job done with some CSS and sprinkle it with some JavaScript magic. Overtime other aspects gained importance like delivering websites that looked good on any devices (responsive design), sophisticated one page websites (parallax scrolling) and other creative requirements. This resulted in websites nowadays being larger than cult video games.

This got some developers thinking and going back to the drawing board to create a sustainable solution: isomorphic web apps.

Personas: The benefits of working with them and how to get started

Before getting your project off the ground you probably had to create a business case to receive the go ahead. Maybe you had to argue which audience will be benefiting of your new solution. Often you already have rough ideas of your end users characteristics but more often than not this is based on guess work and assumptions. In order to make these uncertainties more tangible working with personas can help. Over time personas will become your trusted aid to keep the big picture in mind.
