UX Design Strategy: We realized there were multiple ways to increase member engagement. Increasing community outreach will enable SFBC reach bikers in San Francisco, create awareness and demonstrate benefits of becoming a member. Creating an engaging eblast will get users excited and volunteer for events. Improving the user interface of the current website will show users where they fit in within the larger goals of the organization. Developing a mobile app will give active users an opportunity to share their experiences with other users for real time data aggregation.
Holistic View: To resolve SFBC's problem we decided to approach the problem from 4 different angles. The first would be to increase community outreach to convince people like George to join. The second was to make emails more engaging. The third was to improve the user interface of the website and make it more member focused instead of SFBC focused. The fourth was a mobile app concept that would allow members to report issues, keep track of social events, and have a dialogue with other members as well as the organization.
