UX strategy: define

Investing in a UX strategy makes sense
Before you start planning your strategy, it would make sense to understand what it entails and whether or not you actually need one based around the user goals and business strategy. But investing in a UX strategy makes sense and businesses that do so enjoy increased ROI and enhanced productivity, as well as reduced product development risk. mobile ui ux design services

2. Research and learn

UX strategy: research

Data-driven research is vital for success
Research would be the very first thing any UXer should start with. A well designed strategy is founded on a bedrock of data-driven research and will give you a clear idea of ‘who, what, why, when and how’.  One can do both quantitative and qualitative research. Qualitative methods tend to be stronger for answering ‘why’, while quantitative methods do a better job of answering ‘how’.

3. Plan user stories and scenarios

UX design: users

Plan for the different types of user scenarios
Based on the research you’ve obtained, you can now define your users as personas, which will then allow you to start creating user stories, scenarios and user flows. User stories highlight the needs that may differ from , and these stories are elaborated upon through scenarios.

4. Explore

UX strategy: explore

Explore creative ideas alone or with a team
We now have a solid idea of how our product will flow, and now we can begin to explore creative ideas. Use a team or do it alone. Do it the old fashioned way using pen and paper too. These sketches will then lead on to wireframes and will give you a clearer idea of the layout and functionality. Then we can start adding some functionality by creating prototypes.

5. Consider communication and usability

UX strategy: communication and accessibility

Be user-centric
As the saying goes, ‘content is king’ as it’s the content that feeds the design. Dealing with content can be tricky. Have we got the right images? And do we need a UX writer? Then we need to think carefully about accessibility and usability, are we complying to set guidelines and regulations. For us, to be user-centric we need to make sure our product is open ground for the targeted user.

6. Begin the visual design

UX strategy: visual design

This stage can vary as designers have their own process
At this point we are now ready to begin the visual design. This step can be somewhat subjective as most designers have their own process. But in general you would expect designers to create a style guide or a UI pattern library first. You could also create mood boards that allow you to get inspiration from others. And lastly think about responsiveness (mobile first) and how they will interact with your product. Mobile UI UX Design Services Chennai

7. Test your product

UX strategy: testing

Find out what potential users think through testing and surveys
Designing products is all about creating the best experience you can.  Test the product in various ways so that it can be successful in the real world. A/B testing is a great way of assessing things and is probably the most common way of testing, along with surveys or polls that allow you to ask your active users for their honest opinion.

Don't forget - do your research

The saying goes, if you’re not doing research, then you’re not doing UX. The user researchers collect and then analyse the information obtained from real users, and this outcome usually allows the UX design team to work on the optimal solutions that will make the product user-friendly, less problematic and more attractive.

The research can be done by many ways, but offering user surveys (quantitative) doing face-to-face interviews (qualitative), creating personas and arranging focus groups, are the most popular ways and will return the most useful data. Even though research will weed out potential issues, it should also be remembered that removing the mistakes in design, even if it’s already high-fidelity level, is faster, cheaper and less painful for users than fixing negative issues with an already launched and operating product.
