Most of us are creatures of habit. Aren’t we? Once we like something we will usually get back to it again. This is why good ecommerce store should be designed in a familiar for everyone interface style, creating pleasant shopping experience. There are many industry standards that are helping to create user friendly websites. You could follow the rules or ignore, either way it will have an impact on a website’s usability and overall your income. This subject is immense so in the text below I’ve covered only few examples, nevertheless I hope it will help you to get an idea.
You have a great product which is now ready to be sold online. There are many ways you can approach it. First of all you should take your budget into consideration. Once you have an estimate of it you will be able decide if you wish to do it yourself or if you would like to employ someone who can do it for you. There are many freelancers or small and larger ecommerce design companies that provide this sort of services. The quality of an end-product will depend on the designer’s skills and their knowledge in building an ecommerce.
I see it all the time, people just creating designs that look nice and shoving them up not giving any consideration to how users will interact with that oh so special design they made for the their clients. From experience I’ve noticed how people don’t really care about design that much but more how easy it is to use the site and do the tasks they went on the website to accomplish. Look at Facebook for instance, no one goes on there and compliments how well designed it is but you rarely hear a complaint about how people can’t find where someones photos are or how they can’t see updates from their friends.
