Foodtech platform for creating individual
keto diet rations
Design and development of MVP platform
Keto.diet is a food tech platform. It's based on the concept of "Keto" — a diet with low carbohydrates and high protein, and healthy fats. A person starts losing weight through diet, carbohydrate deficiency, and minimal physical activity such as walking or doing simple exercises.
It's a stress-free diet with enough healthy fats, proteins, and vegetables for balanced nutrition.
The platform allows users to create a diet based on their needs: whether they want to lose weight or build muscle mass. All you need to do is pass a test of several questions. Then, the algorithm will do the rest.
The backend logic is in charge of creating the nutrition
plan. It works like this:
The Keto.diet team planned to create an MVP platform to test the idea and get the first results. Once the results are satisfactory, the team will start further product development.
Goodface had two tasks:
The dishes should be matched with the client's answers. Then, the algorithm can analyze the test answers and select the required diet plan.
Professional nutritionists developed the recipes. Although, the meals were selected from different
foods to meet the tastes of all audience segments.
The plan is unique for each client. For example, it considers that someone needs fish and doesn't eat
meat or eggs. There is an excellent selection of salads as well.
During the brief, we realized that the Keto.diet team had a marketing concept — a platform with keto meals for a healthy diet. In addition, they had examples of other companies and products.
However, the references were mostly related to bodybuilders rather than average people
— the ones not going to the gym.
This audience has a particular problem today: people don't have 15 minutes for a healthy lunch. So we suggested adjusting the platform concept for ordinary people without marketing tricks.
We agreed: marketing hypotheses are up to the client's team, and Goodface duty is to create the platform. So we change only those things that, in our opinion, will improve
We started the first phase of product research. Together with the client, we developed
and agreed on the technical task, according to which we could create several
platform design concepts, a prototype, and the first screens.
We created two design concepts for the future platform. The visual part with custom illustrations. More straightforward concept based on emojis 🥑 ❤️
The first option turned out to be overloaded with images. The concept distracted from the main steps:
pass the quiz, pay, and receive the plan. Thus, we settled on the second design concept with photos
and emojis. It was straightforward and clear for users.
After that, we made a prototype of the site. It included quiz pages, diet examples, and interactive tips for each question. In addition, a separate page of the website is dedicated to diet details, warnings, and tips.
The final design didn't distract users from the quiz. Instead, it's minimalistic,
with detailed questions and intuitive hints.
The most challenging task was to create an algorithm for the diet. Here's how the back-end logic works:
The success of the platform depends on the algorithm. The data server and back-end logic replace natural nutritionists and trainers.
Getting a diet was half the battle. It still needed to adapt the algorithm to the client's needs.
For example, the diet should not be tedious.
We developed the design, prototype, and server logic in three months. Finally, the client was satisfied with the result and started testing marketing hypotheses.
The hypotheses showed the client successful features and opportunities that could improve the product. Therefore, we gradually added them to the platform. For example:
We've been improving the platform for two years in a row. This is how the platform moved from MVP to a full-fledged product.
Through Goodface and Keto.diet's marketing tandem, the platform reaches $1 million in revenue and 100,000 monthly users. The result took a year and a half: six months to test hypotheses and a year to develop a marketing strategy.
After three months of work, the client received a ready-to-launch platform. The Keto.diet team launched the first advertisement. After another three months of research and testing, the project took off and brought in its first revenue.
The client covered the cost of the MVP in the first year of the project's existence.
After two years of work, the client recruited his team to work on a new food tech platform. Keto.diet intended to move from MVP to a different concept.
The keto.diet team now has their own product with a different name but a similar concept. From a team of three specialists, keto.diet grew to 120 people: marketers, developers, designers and analysts.
The Genesis team was responsible for developing and operating Keto.diet. Our initial goal was to find and customize an algorithm that creates a personalized diet and meal plan for users. Goodface advised that such a solution does not exist, so they eventually built several complex features from scratch. They would come back in a few days with several solutions after I described the problem. Goodface goes very deep into platform issues. Initially, we worked on sketch design and on-demand development. I have been responsible for metrics. So, when I analyze the data and see bottlenecks or opportunities, I create terms of reference for them. They have experience improving conversion rates, which helps us find standard solutions. Thanks to Goodface solutions, we have improved our conversion rate and increased our revenue.
