Online eCommerce business is becoming more and more consumer-centric, the perspectives have changed drastically. How? The brand or the business no more holds the highest throne in the kingdom of eCommerce business. The dynamics of the customer-brand relationship are changing as well.
In this digital age, the demands of the customers drive the way brands and businesses should plan their strategies especially when it comes to website development and designing. Therefore more and more brands are now putting great emphasis on providing a rich customer experience to their online customers with the help of UI/UX services.
This is the reason why internet eCommerce giants like Amazon and Google have invested heavily in building an integrated user experience that has made them more powerful. As per the statistics in an article, we noticed that almost 88% of online users are less likely to revisit a website after having a bad experience.
The level of Customer satisfaction influences a customer’s purchase intent. Here’s the thing, did you know an average full-fledged mobile landing page takes up to 22 seconds to load all the content and pictures that are available for the viewer? As per the statistics provided by Google, 53% of online visitors skip visiting a mobile website that takes more than three seconds to load. This information is scary indeed! Therefore, you must optimize your existing work approach.
The Interaction Of UX & UI And CX
User experience is a bigger phenomenon, it is more about providing a seamless experience to your customers while they interact with your products and service on your app or website. There are several parameters through which you can judge the level of customer satisfaction that your website is providing to your visitors.
Things like the average duration of each session, bounce rate, etc can help you to know how customers respond to your website. But what do we mean by customer satisfaction concerning customer experience? It consists of all the elements that your business provides to your customers apart from the product like customer support quality, product packaging, delivery, advertising, etc.
Let’s suppose your website provides a user-friendly experience to all your visitors such that you can capture their attention and can convert them into your customers, you did everything that is required to have a well-built, high-converting website, like performing extensive market research, customer research, mapping out buyers’ journey, etc.
What if in the end, your business fails to provide good customer support? What if your agents aren’t able to handle the inflow of queries from your customers? What if your order dispatching team fails to meet the scheduled deliveries on time? All these issues will ruin the customer experience. Your customers will eventually get frustrated and shift their choices to some other competitor of yours.
If your customers already love your brand and if they are loyal to you then you must focus on improving your website’s or app’s performance. To keep your existing customers engaged you must surprise them with more efficiency and better performance. Work on your website’s navigation, make sure that your customers can surf across your website smoothly. The quality of your product doesn’t seem to be the standalone parameter here, and that’s why your website’s UI, UX, and CX matters so much. Don’t wait any further, start investing in UI & UX services.
