The 4C’s of website usability (UX)

By Cloudrovia

The day you start gaining traffic isn’t the day you start celebrating. Its nothing but an opportunity to compete for that all important second click. Keeping your visitors around isn’t always easy, Conversion XL estimates that the average website bounce rate typically ranges from 44%-66%.That means around half the people who get on your site will leave immediately, never to be seen again. The most common reason for bouncing is they didn’t find what they were looking for… the other main reason is they had a poor experience on your site. Websites are pretty boring if they aren’t designed around the user. A great website helps visitors understand who you are, what you do & why they should choose you. A decent site says all the things you want to say but a great website gives the user everything they want. The distinction is important. User experience is vital to converting visitors into customers. In this post, we’ve created 4 principles for UX & employed some helpful alliteration. Follow these tips & let the money come to you. This is Cloudrovia’s “4 C’s of User Experience”. Lets get into them.

Tell your customers where to go!

By Cloudrovia

You know when you walk into a coffee shop & don’t know where to stand, sit or order? A simple sign is all thats needed. Instructions. We all need them. Your website visitors are no different.

Should your visitors sign up to your newsletter, buy your product or get in touch? If your website doesn’t included powerful call-to-action then its really quite flat for your audience. Make them dive into the next step. If its not clear what they should do, they’ll likely do nothing.

You can hear the crowd calling your site ‘the trampoline’ because its bounce rate is so high. You think you might throw in the towel. Your dream of web-stardom is dwindling. You don’t know what to do next. You closed your eyes and prayed to the web-gods for a sign. This is their answer. This is your sign. We will give you what you need to make it online, but it’s going to involve a little effort from your end so get your notes ready. Like all great journeys this one starts with acceptance.

Be quick, use our 9-factor checklist to ensure your user experience (UX) is more engaging than Disneyland in December. This is going to keep you in the game. Go!
