NEW YORK, August 9, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/
Creating a functional professional website is crucial in the digital age. Studies show that 70 percent of consumers research brands online before making a purchase – and the key to transforming that research into conversions is through a strong user experience online.
DesignRush.com – an online site that showcases the best designs, digital marketing strategies and business growth tips – recently released a case study detailing how a minimal website interface directly improves UX and creates a successful online platform.
Some of the top features that great websites exhibit include:
- Negative space
- Limited decorative features
- Clear visual hierarchy
- Simple typography
- Functional elements
- Overall clarity
By employing these features, businesses can cultivate an online environment that is easy to explore. In fact, too much visual complexity can negatively impact a consumer's perception of a website in the first 50 milliseconds. This makes a site more difficult to navigate and interact with and could cause users to leave a website prematurely without completing the desired action.
In addition, a minimal website design lends itself to better search engine optimization value. A simpler design ensures there are fewer complicated features to load – and a faster website speed improves search engine rankings.
Studies also show that 40 percent of users will leave a website that doesn't load within three seconds. If those customers leave, a website's bounce rate will increase, which tells search engines that a site is unreliable, ultimately harming SEO rankings.
"Minimal web designs typically create a better user experience, which fosters a better relationship between customer and brand," says DesignRush Founder and Executive Director Gabriel Shaoolian. "To produce a professional website that converts, businesses should prioritize the user journey, create intuitive navigation, and brand each page consistently."
DesignRush's research includes examples of websites that exhibit these success-driving characteristics, such as:
- Levit Pen
- The Global Oil Map (By GSM London)
- Lettuce & Co.
