10 Ways to Improve your Website’s User Experience

There has been a huge push to improve website user experience (UX) in the past few years, and with good reason. Bad UX can cause clients headaches with frustrated customers tying up their phone lines or simply giving up on their site and going to a competitor. Good UX, on the other hand, can pay off in many ways including word-of-mouth advertising, sharing on social media and repeat customers. Many decisions you make as the site designer can impact UX for better or worse even before opening Photoshop or touching a line of HTML. Learn ways you can approach your web design projects from the user’s perspective and what they’re looking for.  Join us on Oct 8, 2013 for this Homegrown Lunch and Learn where web designer and front-end developer Shannon Mølhave will give you 10 concrete ways to make your websites easier to use and satisfy your clients.
