Why is website user experience important?

Website user experience is a critical part of the web design process. Unfortunately though, it isn’t something that tends to be talked about very much about until things go horribly wrong. Let’s look at what the term user experience really means; and why your website will benefit from giving it the time and attention it deserves.

What is Website User Experience?

In its simplest terms, user experience (UX) refers to the feelings a user experiences when they are interacting with a product; which in this case is your website. Comprehensive UX considers a variety of different factors including performance, accessibility and aesthetics. The best websites deliver an intuitive UX that allows each visitor to really connect with both the brand and the information they require. And when your visitors find what they need on your website, your business is most likely to succeed.

Why UX Matters in the World of Web Design

We would argue that your UX is just as important as your brand’s visual identity. Why? Well, in addition to fulfilling and ideally exceeding your users’ needs and expectations; a considered UX will deliver the positive experiences that will encourage repeat visits and contribute to long-term brand loyalty. Additionally, thinking about your UX in unison with your visual identity will help you to create a digital presence that delivers an authentic, universal, cohesive and highly effective experience.

The Advantages of Working with a Creative Agency when Developing your UX

Websites that deliver the best experiences are the product of a collaborative design process to find innovative solutions to specific problems.

An agency like Casper Creative will consider the types of connections you want your users to have with your website. Additionally, you should consider how you want your UX to reflect your brand, values and ethos, and how you intend to set yourself apart from your competitors. From here, a period of user testing should begin to determine whether you have successfully created the experience you intended to develop, in the eyes of the people you most want to appeal to.

Defining a Good UX

You could be the proud owner of the world’s most beautiful website; but if it doesn’t also offer seamless usability and rich, enjoyable interactions; it simply isn’t going to help your business to grow. The only way to determine whether you have properly leveraged your user personas and audience data to build a website that delivers the UX your users want to engage with; is to test, test, and test again.

Digital products are more likely to fall flat, confuse, or even fail entirely if UX hasn’t been given enough thought or investment. Delivering the best possible UX will simplify the browsing process for your users. This then creates a lasting positive impression, and increases the likelihood of securing valuable additional leads and conversions.
