Major advances in website CMS (content management systems) services (i.e. Squarespace, WordPress, and weebly, to name a few) make getting a site up and running easier than ever, however, optimizing a site for user experience is a whole other story.
Whether you struggle with finding the time to optimize your UX or you’re stuck trying to get other key players in your organization to see the ROI of UX, it is no longer something that can fall on the back burner.
For anyone who may still be on the fence about the importance of your website’s user experience, Experience Dynamics, a usability consulting firm, compiled a list of 30 eye opening stats that can’t be ignored.
The team gathered statistics from industry experts such as Adobe, Quick Sprout, and Google and put together a share-worthy infographic.
Here are a few highlighted stats from the infographic:
