A visitor’s user experience needs to be inviting, pleasant, enjoyable.

To begin, let’s start by answering the question …

UX is the positive, negative or neutral experience  a visitor has on your website.

The user experience often determines whether or not someone chooses your service, your product or signs up for one of your offers.

When the UX is good, a visitor will stick around and even look forward to coming back to your site. In a way, good UX is similar to going to your favorite restaurant where you love the food, the wait staff and the atmosphere.

When someone arrives on your site, it’s important they feel grounded. In other words, a visitor needs to clearly understand where they are, what they can do — and how to do it. Clutter, like multiple navigations, and distractions, like slide shows need to be avoided if at all possible.


Wondering what a good UX actually looks like, as well as what to avoid? To follow are a handful of examples …
