Hello Sunday Morning
An Australian based non for profit organisation dedicated in helping people who want to change their relationship with alcohol
Hello Sunday morning was having an issue connecting with users on their website.
They needed to know more about their users. We dug deeper and asked questions: Who are our users? (new and existing) What are their motivations, pains and gains? What is currently resonating with them on the HSM website? Are we providing the right resources for our users?
We worked alongside Hello Sunday Morning to understand their user base in order to improve their website.
After 2 weeks of research and prototyping, we delivered a series of concepts that are currently being developed on the Hello Sunday Morning website.
Providing information to the right people
Hello Sunday Morning wanted to understand who their users are and how they currently interact with their website. Also to find out what is their purpose for visiting the site so they can better tailor the information they are providing to them.
The website had too much information
After conducting User interviews and Usability tests on the Hello Sunday Morning Website. It became apparent that users had difficulty understanding and finding the services that is being offered.
"There's too much to read!"
"I find the blogs really helped me get through my journey"
"Oh wow I didn't know there was more information"
"I started reading but half way through I lost interest"
Who are the users?
Based on the data we collected through google analytics, the general user base of Hello Sunday Morning were predominantly Females.
A large percentage of users were also aged from 25-34 years old. It then slowly trickles down into the later ages.
The blogs are the centre of attention
Data shows that blogs and personal experiences shared by others mean a lot to users. Similarly shared by the existing users we interviewed, many said what really helped was reading blogs to connect.
An issue sprouted after finding out the bounce rates were incredibly high for the blogs pages. Although they gained lots of attraction, we needed to find a way to keep the users engaged.

Journey of changing
Covering each users behaviour throughout the four stages pinpointed exactly where challenges and questions may arise. This shows the commitment and improvements required for a positive outcome.
1. Shortened Home page
By shortening the home page, it prevents the user from getting distracted
3. Providing the right resources
The HSM brand and mission is well established, the resources available are useful to the users.
2. Identified the users
Through our personas, we were able to identify their targeted users and how they engage with HSM
4. Blogs are what users are after
The effectiveness of blogs is immense. By providing similar articles to read straight away will increase traffic and use of the website.
Check out the current prototype
The work undertaken confirmed and answered number of assumptions that we and the client had about Hello Sunday Morning.
The results show that the information provided was correct, and the most important source of information to the users was blogs. Users found it extremely helpful to be able to read and reasonate with others around them to encourage and motivate them through their journey.
By presenting "New Articles" and "Similar Articles" to them at the end of their read will keep them engaged on the website.
