How to design a good UX into you product
If you want to build a product with good user-experience, here are few things to focus on.
1. Your Minimum viable product must actually be viable:
First, build a minimum viable version of your product.
It is easier to evaluate the experience of users with MVP. But note that your MVP should be usable, deliver value and solve a problem.
2. Good information architecture is key to creating a better UX:
Make it easy for users to find what they are looking for with good site layout and content structure.
People always like to know where to go or what to do next when using your product.
3. Find a Balance:
Aesthetics are great, but can’t solve all your UX design problems.
Good design is a balance between form and function . The right visual design (form) can be used to influence user behavior (function). A good example is highlighting "call to action" button so that people are drawn to click it.
4. Test everything you can, as early as you can:
Many companies build and test prototypes before they build and roll out the real thing. This ensures that they don’t spend time, energy and money building actual products that no one wants to use.
This approach is highly recommended.
The major benefit is that testing your information architecture before you roll out the core functionality of the product is a good way to gauge the market interest in the product before you even write a line of code.
This saves you a lot of money.
