What is a UX Review and why do it?

A good UX Review will highlight ways to enhance your users online experience, resulting in a positive perception of your brand and increased conversions.

First things first - what is a UX Review?

A UX Review is where an experienced UX designer takes data, insights and expertise to review the user experience of a website or app and uses this evidence to make recommendations for improvements.

Insight + Data + Expertise = Recommendations

Why conduct a UX Review?

The ‘why’ may vary depending on which ‘mode’ your business is currently in:

Preparation – Your brand may not have launched yet, but some work has already been done. Maybe you’ve got a small one-page website live but you need help to build your brand online and get it market-ready. You can’t afford to give your new customers a poor online experience that will damage that crucial first impression of your brand.

Improvement – Your brand website is live but you’re making improvements to your offering or adding new features to create a better brand experience. It’s crucial that you retain customers, build their brand loyalty and encourage referrals.

Iteration – Your brand may have been established for a while, but your website isn’t converting as you’d hoped. You need some help to focus your budget on the right improvements to optimise your customer journeys and translate them into a desired action.

If you fit into any of the above, then it’s worth noting that it costs six times more to attract a new customer than it does to keep an old one. It’s important to keep your existing customers happy and a UX Review is a cost-effective way to quickly identify where the least effort can have the biggest impact on your website conversions.

Every $1 invested in user experience will bring $2 and $100 in return.

In summary, a user-driven website can improve your brand experience, help you to attract new customers, get users to perform a desired goal on your site, and can measurably assist with retaining customers.
