This article is aimed at explaining some simple and effective hacks to make the functioning of a website and make it as smooth as possible to the users.

Before we could even blink, websites have become the part and parcel of businesses. It has gradually evolved from just a page with pieces of information and few images to something people can interact with. Visitors on the website now expect it to provide them with some engagement, entertainment, alongside a great browsing experience. Every aspect of the site has an impression on the users, starting from menus to the CTAs. So clearly, thinking of making a website user-friendly, you need to come up with ideas with your web developers or web artisans to make everything user-friendly.

Here are some mention-worthy tricks for you to make sure your website is user-friendly.

Getting what the users want

To get a website that is loved by the users in the first instance, you would be building it with functions that they expect to have. In short, you need to listen to their thoughts. Study the behavioural pattern of your target audience, what they like and dislike and turn them to actions or features into the site.

Putting up information in an agile way

Your content on the site can be either brief or long. Whatever it is, break it up to make it easy on the eyes. Content includes videos, images, and links too. As per Ecommerce nation reports, on average, only 28% of the website visitors read what’s there. Others just scroll through. So, use grids, separate sections to beef up text and other content in the site.

Navigation has to be intuitive

Whenever a visitor gets into a website, they first look for the navigation bar to skim through the website.  It leads the visitors in their journey and is the guiding light to the key landing pages. However, you should be careful to incorporate limited categories (only the requisite ones) in the navigation bar to least confuse the visitors.

Paying enough attention to placing of CTAs

You need to make sense with your CTAs (Call-to-actions) on the website. For this, you need to place CTAs in the most relevant place where users can easily locate. It is necessary to allow them to know where to click just as they land on a page. Styling or typefaces of the buttons, background colour contrasts and slogan preceding the CTAs are key things to carefully consider.

Speeding up the website

This is not the last but an obvious option for improving the user experience of a website. Speed pushes conversions. Visitors can discover what they want in a fraction of seconds. What else can be better than this? Sites loading its pages in more than 3-4 seconds encounter more bounce rate. So, speed does matter and you to keep the enthusiasm of the visitors make your site enough faster.

The next time you are planning to build a website, focus on these must-haves to make it a perfect one in terms of user experience. No matter what it deals in, if it is providing a frictionless and intuitive experience to the users, your website is going to stay.
