“When you go to the theatres to catch a movie, you hope that you will get an adventure full of happiness, emotions, and, at times, inspiration. Movie producers aim to satisfy their viewers by creating high-quality content. The same applies to a web creator; when designing a website, one would want to design a memorable and great experience for the end-user.
Great websites are measured by the length of the visits of the users. A longer stay will relay to more engagement. UX here stands for the experience had by the user. How does one improve the website’s UX?
Design the site for the end-user
Determine the target audience by doing the relevant research. Once identified, custom design the website to reflect their needs. Please pay attention to the users’ needs and change the features based on their preferences and feedback.
Consider Less as More
Research indicates that users on the Internet pay attention to some websites within a span of around 8 seconds. This means that you have to ensure you capture their attention within the shortest time possible. Your website’s main page should include only what is important; for example, what’s your business is about. You can insert links to your other pages that contain the rest of the information.
The contents within your website are based on the layout created. Create a suitable structure that has all the details the user needs. Ensure the content loads from page to page and meets the needs of the target audience.
Visuals are essential. A simple grid photo can’t keep your user interested and attract the attention of the audience. Please make sure the pictures are of high quality and attached useful information to them.
Texts are crucial and important and should be included accurately within your site. Be cautious as you insert text within your website as certain rules should be followed. Some of the rules include the text’s size; use a readable size, the font type; use the least number of different fonts within the site. Ensure you use bullet points where steps and instructions are being given.
The navigation bar is a panel where the user will reach out to all the other pages and parts of your website. View this point as a GPS for the visitors coming into your site. The navigation bar enables the user to see your pages clearer and makes it easy to visit. Ensure the logo directs the user to the main page.
The Almighty White space
The white space, commonly also known as the negative space, is part of your website page left blank with no content. Leave sufficient space to give your users a breather. Arrange the icon’s text images and all other content in a way that your pages are not cluttered. The space left between every element in your pages is important as it increases the efficiency of the processing of content on your website.
Top Bar Folder
Back then, when newspapers were its thing and the main source of information, editors would ensure that the main points at the top, such as the news flash, would remain at the top of the front page. This concept remains within websites. Ensure you leave what’s hot on the top page so that every user can view it first.
Link in short of tour guides around your website layout. Use the links well enough to be able to guide your visitors across different pages. If a certain link directs the user to content with the new website and sure it does not open in a new tab. If the link directs the user to a different thought, let the page open in a new window.
Call to Action:
Ensure that strategically located, let them have a minimum of two-three words, and brand them with an appropriate flashy color.
By using these methods, one can increase the Website’s UX drastically. These are some very minor but important things. If you wish to keep your visitors hooked up, then follow these guidelines!”
