3 Tips To Enhance User Experience

We understand that having a great looking website is really important for all of our clients, after all, this is your shop window. However, this is just the beginning of the web design process and we want to do all that we can to ensure that not only does your website look great, it also functions and performs to a high level.

Please Note – No matter how attractive your website is, poor user experience is very likely to result in their visit becoming just a one time deal!

Below we have identified 3 of our top tips to help keep your visitors happy.

No. 1 –  Sometimes Less Can Be More

Cluttered websites can be a nail in the coffin in regards to usability. If a website is too confusing, too difficult to navigate, contains too much information or any other issue, there is a very strong chance that users will find their experience to be a poor one.

Minimalist designs often make websites easier to take in and use, increasing their chances of being effective.

Top Tip – Find the right balance by ensuring that your website does not make users search too hard to find information whilst not overloading them at the same time.

Take all steps possible to ensure that your website is as secure as possible.

No. 2 – Don’t Confuse Website Usability & User Experience

A common mistake for many web designers involves confusing user experience with usability. Whilst they can influence each other, they are not the same thing.

To help break this down a little further, the fundamental difference is as follows:

User experience means that visitors to your website want to use it whereas usability means that a person can easily use it.

Although offering a good user experience is very important because it means your visitors will enjoy browsing your website, there are no guarantees that the site would be usable.

Make Your Visitors Feel Safe

No. 3 – Make Your Visitors Feel Safe

Web users are more switched on to the risks posed by ineffective online security than ever before. If your visitors have concerns about the security of your website, it is highly likely that they will not make either online or in-app purchases.

Customers are quite rightly very wary of having their data stolen when shopping online. For this reason amongst others, they are far more likely to use websites they know and trust to make purchases.

The Top 5 Ways a Website Can Benefit Your Business

Did you know that there are still a surprisingly large number of companies who do not have any type of online presence? Even some of those that do are yet to reap the benefits of having a ‘good’ website as opposed to simply having a website.

The creation of a top notch website can benefit your business in a variety of ways and to help you identify some of the more important benefits for any business, we have identified 5 of the more important ones below:

Benefit No. 1 – Establishing a Creditable Image

The creating of a high quality website will enable you to start taking steps towards establishing an online reputation and building levels of credibility through it.

For example, by providing a great user experience for visitors, you are likely to create an positive reputation amongst your customers.

Understanding the Importance of SEO

Benefit No. 2 – Excellent Method of Advertising

A website effectively acts as an online ‘shop window’ for your products and services, which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

An attractive and effective website with good quality content (along with a bit of SEO magic) can result in new customers continuing to find your business, without you actually having to do anything!

Benefit No. 3 – Offer Easy Access For Customers

We all lead busy lives and there is a very strong possibility that many potential or existing customers may need to find out information but do not have the time to phone you to do so.

Without an effective website offering a comprehensive level of information, frustrated customers may feel as though they are being forced to go elsewhere.

Benefit No. 4 – Opening Channels of Communication

A great website offers the perfect way to interact with your customers. On the most basic of levels, you can implement easy to use forms and it a more advanced level, you could incorporate a blog or forum on your website offering a great way to communicate with customers.

Benefit No. 5 – Increasing the Reach of your Business

The creation of an effective website offers the opportunity to expand into new areas simply by promoting a new product or service, or targeting a geographic area which is covered by your business.

These are just a small number of the benefits offered by the creation of a website for your business, so if you still deciding whether a website is right for you, the time to make that decision is now!
