After featuring the gym membership portal that we are working on, we are out with the details of another interesting project that is keeping our team busy. FATbit is currently designing and developing an online video game renting and buying website “GoGames” which is similar to portals like www.GameFly.com, www.Gamerang.com and www.Redbox.com.
This website is not exactly a GameFly clone script but runs on a similar business model. There are many other websites and portals which require a similar web platform to operate; movie or books renting websites being some of them.
When FATbit Technologies was approached for this project, the client was not well aware of the required design and features. The required research about design and technical requirements was carried out by our team. Here are the details of what we have promised to deliver to our client;
GoGames website’s design and user experience was planned after extensive research on user needs, browsing behavior, and study of other online gaming and renting portals. Our past experience of designing online games portals like www.eSportsMoodle.com helped us a lot. The website’s information architecture and navigation have been simplified so even a first time visitor can easily browse the website.
This online games buying and renting website has all features that are necessary to generate sales online. Every feature has been planned and executed keeping user needs in mind and after studying similar company websites.
Such platforms need strong management from the backend so that the admin can keep track of users, inventory management, sales, shipping, etc. If you are looking for a GameFly clone script, these features can help in managing and improving online sales as they enable the admin to take more informed decisions.
Any web portal built for Web 2.0 needs to be interactive and not just display information. It must be user engaging and prompt visitors to communicate with each other. If any video games buy and rental service platform wishes to improve its user engagement and sales, it must incorporate a reviews system or discussion forum where people can share their views. We tried to do the same by integrating a reviews and rating system into the online games rental website.
If you wish to start something similar, you can also import reviews from other related reviews websites. www.TargetTicket.com and www.Vudu.com, popular movies rental websites import movie reviews from www.RottenTomatoes.com.
If a website is able to rank well on search engines for relevant keywords, it builds a reliable source of recurring traffic for the website. A number of amateur designers plan websites that look good but fail to develop a website that generates organic traffic, because they lack expertise of an SEO team. The admins of such websites are left with no option but to pay for every visitor the website gets or to hire a team of SEO experts who will correct the faults of their developer.
Building a website without integrating it with popular social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc makes the website act as a standalone entity. Instead if it is well connected to social media networks, it helps the platform build a community around its core proposition. To enable this games renting service portal to connect to a wider user base, FATbit’s design and development experts have connected the website to all relevant social media platforms.
To incentivize users to share details about new or upcoming games they wish to buy/rent, they are awarded bonus points every time they share website content.
To extend the website’s reach to mobile users, the entire website’s design and content has been optimized to perform well on both desktops and mobile devices. A responsive website (designed using HTML5 and CSS3) ensures that a website has a superior user experience on both desktops and mobile devices. This seems basic for any website but still majority of old and new designed websites are not responsive.
A games rental website targets younger audience which is very active on mobiles, tablets, etc. Thus the website’s look, content and functionality were optimized for multiple screen resolutions.
FATbit has the combined expertise of business developers, analysts, designers, developers, programmers and marketers. If hired at the right time, they can guide you from the project initiation phase to the launch and even after that.
Are you planning to setup a rental portal for movies, books, cars, bikes, golf items or anything else?
