1. Visual of the website / store / social media profiles

The first impression is made only once. It is worth investing in a website whose design is not only modern and perfectly tailored to the client, but most of all, which is in line with the brand’s visual strategy. Other elements, such as post templates, banners on the store, or other graphic materials should also be consistent with it. The right choice of color or typeface can be of great importance in the positioning of a product or service compared to the competition.

The visual effect allows you to stop the client as if you grabbed his hand. Only then do you have a chance to reach through with your offer.

2. UX page

Each stage, seen through the eyes of the client, could be used to briefly describe the course of the analysis in terms of UX. The usability of the website is what each of your clients experiences on it. This is one of the key elements that will be reflected in the shopping conversion if neglected. It is worth checking if the process of ordering individual products is transparent and easy, and making a payment on the website is not a potential bottleneck. Any ambiguities on the product cards, potential obstacles in the basket, problems with finding information about the order fulfillment, may affect the decision to leave the store by the customer.

This happens not only when creating content on social media, but also through slogans on banners, sales emails or buttons on the store. It is worth paying special attention to the target group and adjusting the communication to their needs.
