Listen Carefully Website Case Study

Empowering Advocacy for Better Hearing Health

Listen Carefully by Starkey Laboratories Inc. is a groundbreaking Website aimed at bridging the gap between patients, hearing health professionals, and local state policymakers. With over 44 million Americans experiencing some form of hearing loss, the need for effective advocacy and solutions is paramount. Listen Carefully serves as a comprehensive resource hub, fostering advocacy, education, and news dissemination across four key pillars of the hearing health industry:

  • Over the counter hearing aids
  • Hearing protection
  • The hearing health model
  • Medicare coverage


  • User engagement – While the original Website offered valuable resources, user engagement metrics was non-existent; indicating a need for improved accessibility and interactivity.
  • Information overload – The abundance of outdated information and dated formatting overwhelmed users, making it difficult to navigate and locate specific resources.

  • Enhanced advocacy tools: The introduction of “Voter Voice” revolutionized advocacy efforts by providing users with a seamless interface to directly engage with policymakers and advocates in their state.


  • Increased engagement – User engagement metrics saw a notable uptick following the redesign, with users spending more time on the site and exploring a greater variety of resources.
  • Improved accessibility – The revamped navigation and streamlined content made it easier for users to access relevant information, resulting in higher satisfaction rates and reduced bounce rates.
