Is your site maximizing the intended user’s online experience?
The user experience (UX) should define your web interface and design. UX is the interaction and experience a person has in using the site to do what they’re intended to do, be it finding out more information, social sharing, deeper brand recognition or relationship building, or getting in touch through the “Contact Us” page.
When was the last time you browsed through your business’s site with your intended user or client in mind and asked, “is our site navigation intuitive? Is our prospective client able to get the information they need and came for?”
User interface, or UI, is the layout and design of the site. It is a site’s cosmetic features once you have all the facial features in place.
