Put Yourself in the Customer’s Shoes

A central part of any successful business is thinking like the customer. After all, they are why your business exists in the first place. Use the same strategy when determining whether your UX design needs an update. If you are always analyzing your company from your own viewpoint, you may only see the good.

You can do certain things during this stage of development to make your UX more effective. Think about what aspects of your site may be frustrating for users. Choose a few types of people that are in your target audience. Take time to look at your website from the point of view of each persona. Consider situations when a user would be on your website. The more circumstances that you can address, the more potential issues you will find”.
