RELATED QUESTION AND ANSWER

User experience is defined as the emotions and attitudes of a user about using a certain system, product or service. In our context here, that system or product is a website. The truth is, user experience is really hard to define in technical terms so a good starting point to know what user experience or UX is, is to know the elements of a good user experience. The first element of UX is usability. If the website is unusable, then there is no point experiencing it. Also, being able to use something with ease contributes to good user experience. The next element is accessibility. Being able to access something easily is another element of good user experience. Were you able to access the website easily? Then, we move on to the next element of good user experience which is service. Was the site able to serve you with the needs that you have? No matter how good a website is, if it does not address a need of a user that has to be addressed, then it is of no use to the user. The next element of a good user experience is the appeal of the website. Is it something you would want to use? This highlights the importance of first impressions. 

Another element of a good user experience is value. Is the website something of value to you? Does it provide value to a certain group of people? Finally, the last element of a good user experience is trust. Trust has something to do with the reputation of the website. Are you willing to provide private information to the website such as credit card information? If you trust the website highly, then giving out private information should not be a problem. Examples of elements that enhance user experience are live chat, FAQs or using WhatsApp to support customers.
There are plenty of reasons why user experience is important to a website. The main reason, though, is that a good user experience increases traffic to the site. This is true if you optimized user experience design for your website. The happier your user is with your site, the more likely they will share it with their friends and family. This increases the number of visitors to your site. Another benefit of good user experience is loyalty and retention of your target audience or customers. The better the users experience your website, the more they will stay longer with you and use your site. If the loyal users are your customers, your ROI will significantly increase. User experience works hand-in-hand with search engine optimization (SEO) or site ranking on Google, so the better the user experience of your users, the higher your ranking will be in search engines. 

Customers are also likely to engage with you and give positive reviews if they have a good user experience. If they don’t have a good user experience, either they would rather not talk about it or give you negative feedback and not ever bother with you again. If they have positive feedback, they would gladly share these experiences in testimonials or comment sections. Good user experience also helps you stand out above your competitors. It will set you apart from competitors who provide mediocre or bad user experience. Good user experience also helps you understand what works with customers as well as how they use websites in general. If you know this, you would be better in improving your reputation and credibility.
There are lots of good UX courses online, and if you have some confusion which one is best for you, it might be helpful to consider a few tips. Check the trainer of the course Before you enroll, check the profile of the trainer of the course. Find out about his experience and track record. You can find out about the background of the trainer, his or her achievements, the number of websites he/she has optimized and also the rankings of the websites. Check his/her track record as well as the number of years he/she has done UX. Try to find out who their influencers are as well as people that they have worked with. You can find out about these from testimonials about the course. Check the course fees as well as the subsidies that you might be entitled to Check if the course fees are reasonable and also how much you need to pay if you apply the subsidies or grants to the fees. 

UX might be a self-learning process, but if you are a beginner, you might need help on having a strong foundation. Fees may range from $200-$2000 depending on the course as well as the duration of the course. You could also check for subsidies that entitle you to a coverage of 90% of the course fees. Check if the course provides certifications A certification is awarded to individuals who complete a UX course. Some academies offer diplomas if the duration of the course is longer. Certificates are very useful for job placements. They could be assets when you are applying for a job. An example is a WSQ certification which is awarded by the government. Check if the course outline is updated. UX is always changing. Make sure that the course outline that you are looking at is updated to the latest UX strategies. Just drop us a message and our course ambassadors will give you our recommendations based on your requirements.
