Business challenge

With a vision of spreading the works of brilliant writers, the client from the USA approached us to build a website. The client wanted us to develop a platform where they can serve as a publishing house for the writers and help them launch their books. In addition to that, they also wanted to make an individual dashboard for an online reading panel and a shopping cart for making book purchases.
  • The E-commerce book store has been added to the website so that readers/users can purchase the latest book collection or the best-selling books easily.
  • It was essential to build a log-in panel/registration page so that one can easily use the services that Mynd Matters offers. Moreover, once the registration is done, the user will have a separate account where every data will be stored.
  • The users who wish to connect with the Mynd Matters using different social media apps can quickly get information about the services through Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
  • Our developers have thoughtfully developed an individual page for booking a session for the visitors/readers/writers. We have included three basic categories: choose appointment, your info, and confirmation.
  • The website needed to be developed in a way that it could handle multiple tasks from the client side. The availability of features such as a reader panel, book a session, help the client understand the current situation of book publication.
  • In the reader’s panel, one key feature is added where users can write a review about the book, which will help buyers while purchasing and also help the author to get honest reviews about the book.

The Solution

eSparkBiz has developed an excellent solution for Mynd Matters. We created a user-friendly website where the general visitors, readers, and writers can quickly opt for the services they are looking for. It is based on a fascinating concept of bringing writers close to their target audience to enhance readership. We have developed a very unique website to empower book publishing by offering the right strategy consultation to the writers. eSparkBiz developed Mynd Matters using the PHP framework, Codeigniter. We crafted an absolutely stunning website for writers who want to publish their books globally. We have managed to cover all the minute details, such as book reviews, published books, reader panels, consultations which can help writers succeed and become impactful authors. We also provided e-commerce shop arrangements for users who want to purchase books online.

User/Writer side function modules

As the website encourages new writers to publish their work using MyndMatter, we were asked to develop generic yet intuitive features for common users and writers. Here are some of the solutions we have covered in this web portal.
  • User/Author(only associated with the Mynd Matters) can log in into their account using credentials like email address and password
  • First-time visitors can register on the website by providing their personal information
  • Users can purchase books from the shop section
  • User/author can book an appointment in order to publish their book
  • Author/users can sign-up for the reader research panel
  • Users will have access to visit the gallery and explore a few of the exclusive works by Mynd Matters

Admin/Publisher side function modules

In order to keep website performance top-notch, we were needed to add advanced functions for the admin users. Here are some of the features added considering the admin of Mynd Matter.
  • Admin can log in to the website using credentials like email & password
  • Admin can review booking sessions with publication houses
  • Admin can add/remove books/products from the shop section
  • Admin can manage shopping cart and shipping section
  • Admin can review and confirm posting of feedbacks from the reader research panel

UX/UI

Designs are the most integral part of any virtual platform, and to make it appealing is not an easy task. It requires quite a good knowledge about how attractive it will look, what specific structure should be eye-catching, and which areas need to be highlighted. An attractive UI/UX is always preferable, and to hold the customers; this should be highly intuitive and bespoke. The world has more mobile users than internet users, and that is the reason to make designs more responsive to attract and glue the customers. Any design that works in mobile will be easily accepted in the market as everyone wants a handy responsive design.

Testing & Quality Assurance

Testing plays an important while developing a website or application. The software developer can launch the project once the app or site passes the testing process. The process involves rigorous troubleshooting so that it improves the performance and enhancement of the virtual platform. Troubleshooting is a part of testing that debugs the system glitch, and provides effective solutions, and fixes bugs. It saves development time and reduces cost by maximizing ROIs. Before launching a virtual platform, a team of quality analysts performs testing and makes it completely bug-free.

Security

As the web app deals with the high volume of general users, writers, book details, book reviewers, publishers, and business portals’ data, we ensured that data privacy and security remain top-notch. Apart from this, we have set the security groups in the AWS for accessing the server. Besides, we have covered three main security aspects required for an eCommerce store. Integrity - prevention against unauthorized data modification, authenticity - authentication of data source, confidentiality- protection against unauthorized data disclosure.
