Research before you design!

give you the foundations to help you move forward, with a more focused roadmap.
My partner loves my website design!
If web design isn’t your primary job, but you are trying to cobble together your website design, chances
are you will show the web design to your partner, else friends. You will ask them to give you honest
feedback, but how honest will they choose to be?
Chances are your friends and family won’t understand UX design processes, mobile web browser
considerations, SEO internal link issues, bandwidth concerns, screen sizes and many other concerns. Be
careful with feedback from friends and family, as they probably want to be supportive, but might internally
be cringing. So you should be cautious of the processes you use to gain feedback.
If your website isn’t new, but you are making changes, there are ways of testing new landing pages to
gauge their effectiveness, especially when coupled with a Google AdSense campaign to bring traffic
directly to those pages for testing purposes.
To enable you to test your layout via various browsers, you can use the online Browsershots service,
which is impressive, especially as it is free.
Always try to make sure the website loads quickly, and the website design is a major part of that process.
A great free service to test load times, plus receive advice on changes you can make to your specific
website, is Google’s ‘Page Speed Online’.
