Back to blog Back to homepage Ways to improve your UX Design July 11, 2024 UI/UX Design, Web Design To improve your UX design, you must identify the interface’s “pain points” in order to improve user experience (UX). There are common “problem areas” that require extra consideration from designers. In this post, I will try to explain the steps you can take to improve your ux design. What is UX Design? User experience (UX) design is the process design teams use to create products that provide meaningful and relevant experiences to users. It involves the process of designing your product(s) including branding, functionalities, and usability. When done right, UX design can be a game changer for your products. 1. Research your potential users This is important since you can’t adjust a design to fit the demands of people if you don’t know how they will use it. Verify whether you have gathered all of the user data. Is there a notion for piquing your audience’s interest in the product, and do you have adequate information about it? 2. Use flow Check to see if the way users behave fits the scenario you have in mind. Do they follow your instructions during crucial points of interaction? How many clicks do they make on the result, and is it possible to cut down on the amount and eliminate all of the pointless ones? The website’s information architecture and visual design must be altered if there are roadblocks or the flow is not proceeding as intended. 3. Responsiveness  When designing a new project, make sure to give some love to mobile users as well.cHaving a responsive layout is a must, as It allows you to transform the layout by rearranging elements using breakpoints. Responsive design uses vectors that don’t overload the page and don’t change visually at any stretch. 4. Accessibility The capacity for users of a digital product with varying physical capacities to utilize it in any setting or circumstance (on various devices, with varying scaling and illumination, with varying control techniques) is known as accessibility. Offer everyone the choice of equitable access. Tools like: We are colorblind and Contrast can go a long way to help you with accessibility in your new design. 5. Easy-to-use Navigation A user can only navigate to the pages on your website if they understand the menu system. Sometimes, less is enough. Don’t provide too many options that can overwhelm or confuse the users and cause them to leave your site. Also remember to make it mobile friendly, pay attention to mobile menu structure as it’s always different from desktop menu. 6. Clear Call-To-Action (CTA) Call to action (CTA) is a marketing term for any text designed to prompt an immediate response or encourage an immediate sale. A CTA most often refers to the use of words or phrases that can be incorporated into sales scripts, advertising messages, or web pages, which compel an audience to act in a specific way. Adding a CTA to your design will help you convert more. Let us help you with your B2B design so you can start generating more leads. Get in touch with us today!

5 easy steps to improve your WordPress website performance and speed

improve WordPress website performance

Blog Get to know us in out natural habitat. Back to blog Back to homepage 5 easy steps to improve your WordPress website performance and speed July 6, 2024 UI/UX Design, Web Development, WordPress Development There are steps to improve WordPress website performance and speed. In the post, we will discuss the 5 easiest way to achieve the performance and speed that your website needs to generate more leads. Studies show that users wait about 0.3 to 3 seconds before losing their attention. If your website takes longer to display important information, users will lose focus and may close the browser window. Faster websites have lower bounce rates, higher conversion rates, higher organic search rankings, and of course, a better overall user experience. 1. Reduce the Number of HTTP Requests Web browsers use HTTP requests to retrieve parts of a page, such as images, style sheets, and scripts, from a web server. Each request, especially when using HTTP/1.1, incurs some overhead in establishing the connection between the browser and the remote web server. Compressing your CSS and JavaScript files will also go a long way to enhance your website performance. Optimized websites often load all the required CSS and JavasScript in a single request for each. 2. Use only necessary Plugins Plugins provide website owners with additional functionality but they also come at a cost to your site performance. Any plugins installed on your site will almost certainly load additional CSS and JavaScript files. Some plugins can also increase TTFB times because they require additional processing on the server for each page request. For better performance, target a maximum of 10 to 12 plugins for your website. 3. Write Mobile-First Code Mobile responsiveness is a must for any website in today’s world. Using Bootstrap 5 allows you to build 100% responsive websites. Using the DRY (Don’t Repeat Yourself) concept will also help with your site performances, and speed. 4. Optimize your images I can’t emphasize this enough. If you use very high resolution images, or your images are not compressed this will definitely slow down your website. Improve WordPress website performance and speed with Plugins like Smush. Smush is one of the best available WordPress plugins for image optimization. The free version of the plugin is enough for most websites, but you can always upgrade to the pro version for more features.  5. Use a caching Plugin There are different caching plugins available on WordPress, but I believe the creme de la creme of them all is Seraphinite Accelerator. The plugin offers browser caching, users caching, content optimization, lazy loading, scripts load optimization among other many features. Most of the features you need are also in the free package, so this plugin is a no brainer for site optimization.   If your company depends on your website as one of the primary channels for connecting with customers, then optimising website performance will be very beneficial. However, it can be difficult given the wide variations in devices, browsers, operating systems, and connectivity.

5 Essential Components Of A Performing Website

Blog Get to know us in out natural habitat. Back to blog Back to homepage 5 Essential Components Of A Performing Website February 14, 2021 UI/UX Design, Web Design, Web Development Purpose and Objective of the site: It’s absolutely essential to actually define the objectives of your website before you do anything else, as this will drive everything that follows. As strange as it may sound, I have had some potential clients who want to develop websites but have no idea what they want, and instead, want the development team to figure it out. This is really a bad way to go as no development team has the ability to read minds, and the best they can do is implement your idea the way you present it to them.  Stand out from the crowd: Too many people just buy readymade templates and customize it. As cheap as that may be, what you are getting is a website that looks like hundreds of other websites. The uniqueness of your website will make you stand out of the crowd, and this can be achieved through unique logo and website design. Once you are you, who could be you but you?  — 50 Cent User experience: Always go with the “Content first” model. What is the point of having a website that your users can’t use? Having an outstanding design and easy to use website, and mobile responsive can be the difference between your business succeeding or failing.  Website page load speed: Speeding up websites is important, not just to site owners, but to all Internet users. Faster sites create happy users. Moreover, fast speed also helps your site ranking as google now penalizes slow loading websites. Continuous improvement of your website: Your website is never done. Creating a website is not a one time job. As your business increases, you will need to add new features and functionalities so you don’t get left behind by your competitors. You also need regular supports and updates for your website to make sure it keeps performing at its best. Want to stand out from the crow with a unique, and highly performing website? contact Stafflancer today for free quotes.

Reasons To Use Ready-Made Themes And Templates For Your Website Development

Blog Get to know us in out natural habitat. Back to blog Back to homepage Reasons To Use Ready-Made Themes And Templates For Your Website Development November 16, 2019 UI/UX Design, Web Design, Web Development, WordPress Development In today’s blog, I will be discussing the advantages of using ready-made themes or templates for your website development. Are you planning on developing a website but you are short on budget and time? Then, this article is for you. Read on to see the reasons why you should consider using ready-made theme or template for your website. Easy to set up: All you have to do when planning to use a ready made theme is to search the internet for a theme that best fit what you need. The best option is to use websites like themeforest which offers over 50,000 different themes and templates for different businesses.  After you have decided on the theme you want, download it, configure it into your system and start working. Most ready-made themes also come with well written documentation which you help you should you need additional help. Shorter development time: Using a ready-made template should save you a hefty amount of time, since you will essentially be skipping two time-consuming project phases: design and front-end coding (slicing the design and coding it to HTML+CSS+JS templates). If you know exactly what you want to do with the theme you’ve chosen and how you want it to look, all you have to do is customize it.  Low cost: You are saving a lot by using ready-made themes. No need to pay a designer for the website design, while the price of the theme itself is typically quite low (usually between $2-$80). The cost of setup and development can also be reduced by maximizing the potential of the template’s built-in features. Reliable Updates: When you purchase a website template, you often receive updates and support for the future. Updates to CMS platforms such as WordPress can often cause theme problems, and knowing that you have access to support from the theme developers in such a scenario is one of the greatest benefits of using a website template. Inbuilt functionalities: Website templates typically come with an abundance of built-in functionality, from SEO features to WYSIWYG editing abilities, which will help to save you time, money, and hassle in all areas of website management.
