Understanding UX in 5 Simple Points

If as a brand you are thinking of working on your conversion optimization and landing page optimization, understanding UX design is vital.

If as a brand you are thinking of working on your conversion optimization and landing page optimization, understanding UX design is vital. Every single visitor that lands on your site needs to be triggered or helped around. UX design makes sure that during this process, the most important person isn’t left out of the mix – the user.

What can a UX design do for you?

  • It gives you a better and clearer understanding of a product
  • It gives you a scientific approach which can be applied to humans and their behaviour
  • Increase product sales and attract more users
  • Improve the usability of a product
  • Keep users happy

  1. WIREFRAMES A wireframe is a rough guide for the layout of a website, software interface, or an app. This is the deliverable that is most often associated to a UX Designer. This used be done as a series of static images, however today there are many tools that UX Designers can use. These tools make it fairly straightforward to turn a wireframe into an interactive prototype without writing a single line of code.
  2. USER TESTING Since UX Design is all about the user, getting users involved in the process is the key to a successful design. Making users sit in front of your website/app and asking them to perform a series of pre-planned tasks (while they think out loud) is the most common type of user testing. Who and how many test participants you involve, how closely your participants match your actual users, how many tests you run, and the tasks you ask them to perform are shaped by budget, time constraints and learning objectives.
  3. UX WORK IS ITERATIVE While it may not look like a UX designer has done all that much, but in truth, they’re 5 versions farther along the lines towards a product your customers will like. To make great products, they make lots of changes and test them. Then they bury the changes that don’t make enough of a difference. They keep doing this until you finally have a product that’s substantially better than either the last one or the competitor’s offerings.
  4. UX IS ALL ABOUT FAMILIARITY Ground-breaking design is awesome, but design that converts is better. New frameworks and flashy plug-ins might look nice, but if no one is clicking the “buy” buttons, you’ve got a problem. Platform guidelines exist for a reason. While it might seem that making your product look exactly the same from platform to platform is the main goal, be careful to pay respect to the sticky details of each OS. Using familiar patterns, icons, and presentational styles is a great way to look native, even if you’re not. Testing your solutions on actual devices goes a long way to ensuring things feel at home in each environment.

  5. UX IS MORE THAN USABILITY Usability is important, but the user experience is more than usability. Remember: Usability is the bare minimum requirement of a product that is released; UX includes everything else that makes the difference between “it works” and “it wows!”

Social Media as a Tool for Lead Generation

A decade ago, the primary function of social media for businesses was community building. Today, the role of a company’s presence on popular social networks has evolved to include customer service, building brand awareness, and perhaps most importantly, lead generation.

A decade ago, the primary function of social media for businesses was community building. Today, the role of a company’s presence on popular social networks has evolved to include customer service, building brand awareness, and perhaps most importantly, lead generation.

First, let’s define exactly what we mean when we talk about leads. Leads are the potential customers who have expressed some interest in your product or company and have provided contact information you can use to follow up with more information. You can then pass these leads directly to your sales department or engage with them using a tailored content marketing program.

If you’re not providing your sales team with a steady stream of potential new customers, you’re doing your business some serious damage. And you’re doing yourself damage, too, because lead generation metrics are a key way to prove the value of your social marketing efforts to your CEO.

Special Offers

Everyone loves free stuff, so consider hosting a lucky draw or offer giveaways on social media. These types of campaigns are something people enjoy sharing on their social channels, and by including an entry form, you’ll have the opportunity to capture important lead data. At the end of the form, be sure to incorporate a way for entrants to share the offer via their social channels. This way, participants can spread the word with their community and with every mention, you’re able to continue building the relationship by engaging and acknowledging their posts.

Polls and Surveys

Rather than assuming what your audience cares about, just ask them. Your followers can provide you with a bucket full of knowledge, and polls offer a unique way for people to express their opinions. This is an incredible way to get feedback on how people are using your product, what their pain points are, and what they’d like to see on your roadmap. You can even offer incentives to increase the response rate.

Discount Codes

Flash deals and discount codes are a great way to increase brand awareness and generate demand. By including a strong call-to-action and time constraint, you can create a sense of urgency for people to respond to your campaigns. Many consumer companies are adopting this as a way to combat skyrocketing cart abandonment rates, but it is also highly relevant in the B2B space as well.

Pick the right Social Media Channels

As you know, there are at least half a dozen different social media channels you can use for your company. But you can’t choose one based on popularity or its cool factor. What you need is a relevant channel on which you can find, attract and engage your audience.

To pick the best social media channel for your efforts, ask yourself a few questions:

  • Where does your ideal buyer hang out? If you don’t know, ask them.
  • What kind of information are they looking for? Where can they find it?
  • If you know the social media channels where they hang out, which one is the most active?
  • How formal is your industry? If it’s very formal, then Facebook may not be your best bet, whereas LinkedIn might be. If it’s informal, then Twitter may be where you want to focus.

Engage with your Social Media Followers

For starters, create high-quality content relevant to your audience. This will help you get known and respected in your industry. If you are known for your expertise, every time you publish something people will listen to what you have to say. This will make it easy for you to engage and attract relevant traffic to your lead generation campaigns.

With more and more Websites coming in, it’s very hard to cope up in the field of Online Marketing.

One effective way is to have a good website. Now, the question what is a good website? Or how do I Design a nice website?

Well! Here are 5 tips to always keep in mind while designing a website.

Design Tip 1: Purpose – What is the Website for?

It’s very important for the Designer to understand what are the needs of the user or what is the website for? Is it for selling products, providing information or is it supposed to entertain.

Each page of the website needs to state the purpose in the most clear way and fulfill the needs of the website users in the most effective possible way.

Understand UI in 7 Simple Points

A website is much more than a group of pages connected by links. It’s an interface, a space where different things — in this case, a person and a company’s or individual’s web presence — meet, communicate, and affect each other. That interaction creates an experience for the visitor, and as a web designer, it’s your job to ensure that experience is as good as it can possibly be.

And the key to that is to think about your user first, foremost, and always.

Simplicity

A quality user interface is made up of necessary elements that are logical and concise. While you are working on the design of your interface, ask yourself “Does the user really need this to compete their task?” before adding features and content. Limit your interface to the items that are essential for the user. Don’t add items just to feed your ego, but rather, focus on the quality of the user experience.

Clarity

Clarity is one of the most important attributes of any user interface. Keep in mind that your user interface exists for the sole purpose of facilitating users interacting with your system. To do this it must clearly communicate with users. If users can’t figure out how to use your interface easily they will become frustrated and abandon the experience.

Consistency

With your user interface, you will want to maintain consistency throughout the entire experience. Consistent interfaces will allow your users to rely on and develop usage patterns that will improve the experience. People crave consistency and you should give your users the opportunity to be proven correct when they rely on it.

Maintain language, layout and design throughout your interface. By doing so you make it easier on your users to understand how things will work, increase their efficiency and improve the user experience.

Familiarity

Your interface will feel familiar if users don’t have to think how to use it because they already understand it. When users are familiar with something, they know what to expect and don’t have to think about what to do. Because of this, work to identify areas of your design where you can leverage familiarity to make interacting with your system easier for your users.

Visual Hierarchy

One attribute that is often overlooked but is important is a quality UI is designing your interface so that it allows users to focus on what is important. If you try to make everything look important you just create information overload and reduce the quality of the user experience. The contrast between the different sizes, colours and placements of elements should work together to give a clear understanding of your interface and what a user should do. A well designed visual hierarchy reduces the appearance of complexity and helps users accomplish their tasks.

Efficiency

Your user interface is how a user will get to where they want to go and do what they want to do. A quality user interface allows users to perform tasks with speed and ease, in other words, it operates with efficiency. One of the best ways to improve the efficiency of your interface is through task analysis.

Responsiveness

When it comes to the responsiveness of an interface, you want your interface, and the system behind it, to work fast. Users easily become frustrated having to wait for a web site to load for instance.

Additionally, when you think about responsiveness you should also think about your interface responding to users. Your user interface should provide feedback to the users. Let your users know what is happening and that their effort to engage with the interface has been understood.

Why do you need your Business to go MOBILE!!

Step into a metro, go into any café and walk down any mall. One thing you are sure to see is a smartphone being used. If you think that mobile apps are solely for big name brands like Amazon and Citibank, you are wrong. More small and medium businesses are following the mobile trend, understanding that an effective mobile strategy involves more than just a mobile-friendly website.

22489844_1764855877150696_6324351297821532015_n

For businesses across all industries, mobile technology has provided new and innovative ways to engage with employees, boost productivity and cut the cost of operating in an increasingly competitive world.

And it’s not just big organizations that can reap the benefits of mobile. For small businesses, the cost cutting advantages are pretty good and the opportunities to work smarter mean that there is more chance of success and grow in both the short and long term.

Better Employee Engagement

The millennials are virtually inseparable from their smart devices and use them for everything from shopping to talking to their friends. Deeper employee engagement can be achieved by updating and communicating more effectively, allowing individuals to work and innovate wherever they are in the world.

Create a Direct Marketing Channel

Apps serve many functions: they can provide general info, prices, booking forms, search features, user accounts, messengers, news feeds, and much more.

One of the biggest benefits of having a mobile app is that all the information you’d like to provide to your customers – including special sales and promotions – is right at their fingertips. Through push notifications you’re getting even closer to a direct interaction, and can easily remind customers about your products and services whenever it makes sense.

Build Brand and Recognition

A mobile app for your business can greatly contribute to your brand awareness.

Brand: A mobile app is like a blank billboard sign. You really want to do is create an app that has features your customers will love, while at the same time is well branded and beautifully designed.

Recognition: The more often you can get customers involved with your app, the sooner they will be inclined to buy your product and/or service.

Stand Out From the Competition

The mobile apps at the small business level are still rare, and this is where you can take a big leap ahead of your competitors. Be the first in your neighbourhood to offer a mobile app to your customers. They’ll be astonished by your forward-thinking approach.

Employers who engage with the latest technology and go mobile will no doubt have a head start on their competitors. The way we work is changing and keeping up with all the latest developments is vital if businesses want to grow and succeed. The mobile revolution may well be one of the most defining moments of the next twenty to thirty years.

How to Generate Leads Using LinkedIn

Having a LinkedIn account is crucial to not only expand your social media presence, but to generate leads. Confused? Let us help you.

It’s not enough to create your profile and let it just sit there. You must utilize the tools in LinkedIn to make your account work for you.

Finding Leads through Advanced Search

There are several search filters on the advanced search page you can use to narrow down your findings. They include Location, Industry, Function, Seniority Level and Company Size.

Finding targeted prospects is important and connecting with the right people is the best way to generate leads on LinkedIn. By utilizing the Advanced Search functions, you are likely to find the people you most want to connect with.

Make Smart Connections

Another way to get new leads is to develop the relationship you have with your current clients. You should be connecting with them on LinkedIn and viewing their connections as possible new connections for you.

Joining groups is another great way to connect with potential clients. You may not want to start your own group unless you already have a following of engaged prospects and clients. The easier way is to be active in whatever groups you do join.

Lastly, make every connection personal. If you connect and immediately try to sell to them, you will alienate your new connections. If they run a business, learn more about it and stay on top of what they are up to; even if it doesn’t have much to do with what you do. You just may have a connection that needs what they have to offer, and a referral is a great way to get their attention.

Prove Expertise through Your Content

If you want to look like an expert in your field, then you must do what the experts do: ask engaging questions, share useful content and create original content.

If you write a blog, sharing the link is a great way to amplify your content. Give people a reason to read the article, and then link to it in the post.

You can now publish articles to LinkedIn, which is a great way to showcase your expertise. Just be sure to use compelling titles and graphics because you’re competing with other LinkedIn users for your Connections’ attention.

LinkedIn is a phenomenal tool for businesses to find leads. It is by far the leader for B2B companies versus other social media sites like Facebook and Twitter because it is used mainly for business connections. If you use it right, you are sure to get lots of targeted leads. And if you put some time and energy into those leads, they are sure to turn into clients and that will ultimately grow your business.
