  • How user-centric is your business website design? | web design northampton - in.house.media news blog
    site in stages gauging end user feedback and ensuring any tweaks made as a result are done so in order to meet the needs of users UCD is there to remind web designers of one very important fact they are not the user Inside technical knowledge of how a website works and what makes it tick can obstruct a web designer from understanding how a user may interact with it But what about the business whose website they are building Should they not consider themselves users Typically the answer to this question is no A business website exists in order to provide more leads and sales and it is therefore with no surprise that the aims of the business may not match the user To engage a user you need to think like a user For example asking your web developer to build a website which generates more leads is not going to offer the same end result as a focus on making an enquiry form more user friendly In reality both the web designer and the business are likely too involved in the products and services being offered to know the needs of the user That is not a criticism but it is a fact which is all too easily overlooked during the birth of a new website User centred design should never be considered a three way battle between designer business and public user The key to developing a successful website is balance Learn to balance your goals as a business with those of the web designer and the end user Just assume the latter is tipping the balance of the scales a little further No Comments Read More Tweet Search for Recent Posts Our Predictions for the Biggest Web Design Trends in 2016 What Are Landing Pages

  • web design northampton - in.house.media news blog | Check here for the latest industry related news from in.house.media. - Part 14
    web and making calls with her iPhone it struck me just how far we ve come with accessibility in tech She demonstrated the way in which vocal feedback guided her finger to the desired part of the screen and how with just a little guidance it was possible to perform any task us lucky enough to have the gift of sight take for granted What s more there was only a marginal amount of additional effort required It didn t seem complicated or frustrating It just worked What is more amazing is that this was achieved on a piece of non tactile glass No clever haptic feedback or vibrating just glass and great software It is therefore no wonder that along with the rise of mobile web browsing another increasing trend has also been witnessed those with disabilities using the web on mobile devices We ll assume your business website is already responsive if not it s time to think mobile but how accessible is it to those with visual impairments Zoom For those with mild or moderate visual problems it s important that they can still zoom into your responsive website It is all too common to see mobile sites which prevent the user from zooming in Avoiding a simple piece of code setting the maximumscale to 1 is the first step Don t rely on browsers having text resizing options either iOS Safari for example doesn t currently have that ability Instead follow the accessibility guideline and allow zooming up to a maximum of 200 White space Apple created a bit of a stir recently with their flat redesign of iOS Lots of white space featured throughout and as attractive and minimalist as this can be it can also disorientate visually impaired users on mobile websites particularly if they re not responsive Zooming in and out of websites flanked by fields of white can result in a frustrating experience for anyone but especially someone who needs clear guidance to touch points Positioning Lastly and perhaps most obviously convenient placement of messages and calls to action is absolutely crucial for an accessible mobile website The EU cookie law hasn t helped with this but there s nothing worse than hunting around for a tiny X button Worse still such controls can disappear entirely from the screen when zoomed in on Pay attention to these small details and test test test No Comments Read More Tweet Some Simple Ways to Increase Web Traffic This was posted by Tracie Sherlock on June 17th 2013 Having a constant stream of traffic is crucial for any website Yet it can be very difficult to achieve Fortunately there are a number of simple things you can do to increase traffic to your website or to start building traffic from scratch Here are a few of them Create Content Regularly It s extremely important to add new original content to your web page on a regular basis Unique content is what gets picked up by search engines When you add fresh content regularly you will begin to move up the page rankings helping to attract new visitors Writing a blog producing how to guides or posting regular news are all ways you can achieve this Use the Right Keywords The original content that you post on your website will be made all the more effective if you include the correct keywords within it Think about the words and phrases that people will search for when looking for a site like yours and include them in your content meta tags and page titles However don t overload your content with keywords as search engines could view this as spam Analyse Your Statistics By looking at the traffic that is currently coming to your website you will be able to see which elements of your strategy are succeeding and which areas need more work You will see which keywords people are using to find your site along with where your traffic is coming from This can be used to inform the content you put on your site and prioritise what you show your visitors when they arrive No Comments Read More Tweet The Importance of a Good Contact Page This was posted by Beverley Silvester on June 17th 2013 The importance of the contact page in web design is often overlooked and proof of this is when you visit websites needing to make contact about a product or services then struggle to make that contact Web designers must not under estimate the benefits of a good contact page as it can positively serve the business in many ways Improving customer relations by responding to their questions and queries can also enhance the products and services offered by using the customer feedback Online communication between consumer and business can benefit both parties which is why a well designed easy to use contact page is essential The products can look good but if contact with the company is not easy trust in the company could well be lost which is usually followed by the customer who will go elsewhere Email is the easiest way to contact an online company or a contact form that sends an email By designing a good contact form incorporating required fields you will have the control over information given and it can prevent spam Then if the company has an address or multiple addresses of stores or shops then these should also be displayed alongside contact information for each premise with opening hours and maybe directions and maps If your contact page provides as much information as possible visitors will have more chance of finding your company and increasing the relationship trust How many times have you logged on to a site that you have done business with or are wanting too but need to speak to an advisor or someone first This can be so frustrating and creates doubts about the trustworthiness of the company Social media buttons are another good element to
