Creating an efficient and engaging user experience (UX) is as much an art as it is a science. Your audience isn’t interested in navigating the terrain of a convoluted website. The aesthetic of a website and the products you offer online are irrelevant, if site visitors don’t understand how to interact with the site and access the information.
