So, what do you have to do in order to boost the
user experience on your website?
Basically you need to think like an architect.
You have to build a blue print, taking into
account each and every detail of the features of
your site and their functionality. However, all
this may not happen at one go. There are a few
steps you need to take in order to deliver an
interactive and incredible experience for your
users

Make sure whatever you design is for your users
Gone are those days when users were willing to
learn how to interact on the websites so as to
complete their tasks. Today, they have so many
options that it doesnt take much time for them
to get frustrated with a website, an application
or a product that seems substandard to their
tastes. Your own tastes and preferences are not
the ones that matter when designing your website
only because those of the users might be
completely different. What you need to do is to
find out the intention of a user when he visits
your website and help him/her achieve his/her
objective in the easiest and most convenient way.

Do your homework
It is very important to observe, listen and
absorb as much as you can, in order to find out
the user intentions. Conversations with clients
may help you in a better way. It is important to
understand the goals of your clients and then do
extensive research on how you can contribute to
help them achieve their goals. This will give you
an accurate and complete picture of what you need
to do next. One more thing that you just cant
ignore here are your competitors. Find out what
steps they are taking to meet their user needs
and enhance the user experiences on their
websites. You can learn a lot from their mistakes
too.

Strike a balance between your clients objectives
and the users needs
Web designers often make the mistake of
considering users as their clients. Well, it is
not so. The people or companies whose websites
you are designing are definitely your clients and
it is their objectives you need to achieve.
However, it is also important for your clients to
understand the needs of the users who visit their
websites. It becomes your responsibility to
determine the users needs and inform the same to
your clients so that you can strike a balance
between your client objectives and their user
needs.

  • Think like users
  • The basic focus while boosting user experience
    should be on what your users are trying to
    accomplish. Prioritize your content and structure
    your site according to the goals of your users.
    The best way to do this is to group your users
    into various categories.
  • A few of these may be
  • Browsing
  • Comparison Shopping
  • Killing Time
  • Looking for specific content
  • This will give you a clear idea about why your
    users visit your site or use your app. You will
    be able to recognize their behavior patterns and
    design your website or app accordingly.

Minimize the tasks that you want your users to
complete
  • Hardly any user would spend his/her valuable time
    on filling up lengthy forms or completing lengthy
    tasks on your web or app. Therefore, it is
    important that you get rid of the extra clutter
    which might confuse your user or distract your
    user from achieving his/her main objective. Find
    out what your users want to do and guide them
    through the entire process so that things are
    simpler and faster for them. Try to give them an
    idea about what is coming up next. This will make
    them happy and worry-free.

Follow the Fisher Price example
  • Fisher Price is one company I can think of,
    that actually enhanced their user experiences. By
    creating toys that were bulky and oversized, they
    made them easier to use for children. Instead of
    checkboxes and radio buttons, use jumbo sliders,
    giant input fields and bigger buttons that make
    things more visible and simpler for your users.
    This will not only improve your user interaction,
    it will also reduce your bounce rates. While
    asking for information, make sure you make it
    simple and cheeky so that your users get
    interested to complete the task. This will boost
    up your signups, increase your web traffic,
    enhance your online sales and maximize your ROI.

  • Think tablets and smart phones
  • With time, people have started changing their
    devices from desktops to laptops and now to
    tablets and smart phones. If you want to enhance
    your user experiences find out if your design
    will work on tablets and smart phones.
  • Design your UX in the perfect way
  • There are many things you need to consider while
    designing your UX and these include
  • The visual hierarchy
  • Grouping of content
  • Spacing
  • Size and positioning
  • Try determining all these before you handover the
    project to a designer. Make things simple and
    uniform.

Collaborate with all the departments
  • Your design is not the only thing that will
    provide all the answers to your users. It is
    important to work together with all the
    departments including your clients, the users and
    your internal team. This will help you create an
    amazing user experience, while achieving your
    business objectives.

Test your website thoroughly
  • It is very important to track the performance of
    your website and see where users are dropping
    off. However, make sure this is done by a third
    party to make sure your website is checked
    thoroughly and the outcome of such a test is
    nothing but the truth. These learning will
    thoroughly help you in your next iteration.
  • It is not about how well you design your website
    it is about the experience that it provides to
    the user who visits your site. Whether you want
    to do it yourself or go with a Internet Marketing
    Company India or a Web Design Company
    India offers you, this should be your goal at all
    times.
