USER EXPERIENCE (UX) | CONTENT DESIGN
Ok, I know User eXperience (UX) design isn’t necessarily a ‘lead channel’, however, when done right it improves conversion! Meaning you need less traffic for the same result, or the same traffic generates a better result (depending if your ‘glass half-full’, or ‘half empty’). When tackling any new digital project, it pays to design your content and layouts with the user experience in mind. Getting good at wire-framing, and aligning your business or project objectives to your design is critical to being successful in digital marketing.
Why is UX and content design so important? Because we live in an instant gratification society and our attention spans continue to get shorter and shorter, therefore it is no longer enough to just have good content, it needs to be well designed and engaging for it to be effective. Check out some of our recommended videos below that will help fine-tune your skills in this area and improve the quality of your digital projects.
