Does User Experience Make a Big Difference?

User experience refers to the experiences someone has while using a particular website or platform. If they have a good user experience, they are more likely to become customers and spend their money on the products or services on offer. Based on this, user experience is incredibly important and it is something that webmasters and web designers need to focus on in order to achieve conversions.

There have been many studies carried out in relation to user experience and they very much suggest that it is something to prioritise. The internet is completely inundated with websites, many of them offering similar products. If a user finds that they enjoy using a particular website more, it makes sense that they will return to this website again. By ensuring a positive user experience, company owners can find themselves new customers and in the process, find loyal customers who will continue to use their business.

The Most Important Aspects of Web Design

A well-designed website should look good and function well at the same time. There are lots of things you should consider in conjunction with your web designer. Here are some of the most important:

  • The overall appearance. Your website should have a cohesive appearance and should be recognisable as yours on every page.
  • Branding. Make sure your site shows who you are and will stay in customers’heads. Create a brand with your website that is memorable and attractive.
  • Functionality. The website should work well and should be easy to use.
  • Navigation. Make sure people can find their way around your website easily. They need to be able to search, find products and get to the part of the site they need to be on.

Discuss all of this with your web designer. If they are the right designer for you, they will understand your brief and create a site that works for your business.

Using VistaPrint for Customised Promotional Items

If you have a brand already and a professional logo has been designed for your company brand but you have grown tired of the usual printed media methods such as a plan business card, flyers, online or via billboards, as well as their overall costs. Then a good solution for your business is to use VistaPrint to create customised promotional Items featuring your design.

They have affordable rates and the more quantities you buy from them per order the greater the discounts, and you most likely will get free shipping over a certain order amount.

Once you have uploaded your logo, and/or design you can then have that printed on mugs for use around the office (or to give out to customers), pens to hand out to customers instead of boring business cards, and a wide range of other promotional items that may enable your business to stand out from the rest, as it boasts your company logo, and/or design.

Designing a WebSite Using a WordPress Theme

If you are a web designer who has dabbled in a bit of web programming or web development, as you have designed and built a few sites. You may have found it to be a bit time consuming and effort consuming  using the same approach for larger sites, when working with the small non-eCommerce sites where your project is for a simple website or web blog, when a simpler solution is required.

If this is the case then considering using WordPress as your content management system,  and create a custom designed theme using the underscores theme frame work as a base to build your’re theme on.

This way you don’t have to worry too much about the heavier programming as most of the work has been done for you with the CMS, and as it’s not an eCommerce site it won’t need the extra functionality weighing it down.

Underscores is a lightweight frame work that literally gives you a blank design campus to work from but includes all the CMS functionality required for the site to work well.
