What is UX Design and how can it help your business grow?

Published

on

 

By now, most people know that UX stands for user experience. But knowing what it stands for is not the same as really understanding the details that make it up and make it work. In fact, most people would have a hard time explaining what designing for a user experience means, or what a UX designer actually does.

So What The Heck Is User Experience Design?

UX Design (User Experience Design) or “User Experience Design” is a design philosophy that aims to create products that meet the specific needs of its end users, achieving the greatest satisfaction and best possible user experience with the minimum effort. Like you see in the image above, we UX Designers wear many hats (there will be another article going deeper into this) but we all have ONE common goal of not making the user think!!

When we make users feel like they know what the heck they’re doing with little explanation, they feel happy, accomplished, and valued, thus making them returning loyal customers.

A lot of big silicon valley companies have based their success on this very practice!! Companies such as Airbnb, Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Alibaba, Google and Facebook study the behavior of their users to better develop products and services. And if these big names use it, then it must be pretty legit right?

Alright so now that your all caught up!! How can UX help your digital products or your  business grow?

 

Im freaking glad you asked!!, UX is not just about the user. UX Design is a supporting function for businesses.

An excellent User Experience can generate:

  • More sales ($$$)
  • Less customer complaints
  • Higher levels of audience satisfaction
  • Increased loyalty
  • Returning customers
  • Cost reduction in development (of a digital product)

And all of this is done by getting to know your users!

When you get to know your users you can better address their wants and their needs. 

In UX Design we call these “pain points”.

Users expectations on their experience of products are on the rise. Consequently, to remain competitive, businesses need to implement UX Design into their products to ensure their customers have the seamless, pleasurable experience they have come to expect from all these major platforms like Google ,Instagram and Facebook.Your customers out there use these major services every day, hence thats why they’re so freaking successful!!

This means your product ,website and or business process WILL ALWAYS BE COMPARED TO THESE BIG NAME PRODUCTS AND SERVICES!! So your business or product’s user experience must be up to par to these seamless standards to be successful. Luckily here locally in Puerto Rico UX or as I like to call it “#UXBORICUA” has become a rising star within the local San Juan tech scene and is added success to the development processes of all these up and coming start ups, and successful ventures  from Parallel 18 and Piloto 151. 

In which industries can User Experience Design be applied to?

In any industry that has to deal with human interaction and or  technology.  UX has the ability to help in any process of any company in some way or another creating efficiency and less friction in its processes.

7 Figures in 7 Months: How 4 Entrepreneurs are Thriving During the COVID-19 Recession.

Published

on

Project WiFi was founded in September of 2019 by Mohammed Shakaoat, Andy Kong, Paul Parker, and Marcello Cantu. The 4 entrepreneurs set out on a mission to provide a beneficial and more reliable investment opportunity for individuals looking to take advantage of the ever-growing industry of E-Commerce. By the end of Quarter 1 in 2020, the start-up has scaled to 7 Figures and currently employs over 50 individuals both here in the United States and at their office overseas. The company is projected to manage over $19 Million in combined assets by the end of 2020. The team stated, “The idea came to us when we started gaining a lot of attention on social media from posting our personal results. People started asking questions when we started selling over $100,000 per month on Amazon. From there, we realized we could expand our total sales reach and make this an extremely profitable company. We all had experience selling on Amazon, but as individuals, we had unique skill sets as well, the team ended up being a perfect fit.”

Who is this business for?

Our Automation service is a great opportunity for anyone looking to expand their passive income portfolio. Amazon only allows one seller account per person, so what we do is partner with you, open the store in your name, scale and manage the business 100% for you and split the profits. It is completely hands-off for the investors. Since we maximized our individual stores,

opening stores under investors allows us to increase our total sales reach on Amazon and build a passive income business for them. We handle everything from product research to customer service to fulfilling orders.

How much money is needed to front the products?

We use the dropshipping business model, therefore we do not purchase any inventory upfront. We don’t touch or see any of the products at any time. We only fulfill an order once a customer purchases a product from us, from there we forward the order to our supplier and they ship it directly to the customer on our behalf. Because Amazon pays out every two weeks, we leverage credit lines to float the products until Amazon releases the funds. Leveraging credit allows us to earn massive amounts of cashback points that can be used for travel and purchases.

Is COVID-19 affecting your business?

We work entirely online from our homes and offices. We have actually experienced an increase in volume for a lot of the products we sell, our stores are doing better than ever. People are at home and often scared to leave the house. They rely on 3rd party sellers like us on Amazon to deliver the daily household items they need.

What are you guys planning for the future?

We are looking to expand our team here in the United States and move to a bigger office in Los Angeles. We also have big plans for the future of Project Wifi as a whole. E-Commerce is

always changing and evolving, as a company, we have to as well. Otherwise, we are going to be left in the dust.

Where can we get more info about Project Wifi?

You can get more information about our services on our website, ​projectwifi.io​. You can also keep up to date with us by following us on Instagram, ​@projectwifi, ​@moe.capital, @andyvonde, @ecomcello and @pauiparker.

6 tips to not go crazy in your home office

Published

on

By

 

Because of the current coronavirus situation a lot of people, including me, left their offices on a Friday and BOOM!! Started working from home on a Monday!! However for people with ADHD like me can often feel overwhelmed on the fact of being completely isolated.

 

Here are 6 tips to avoid going crazy in your home office:

 

#1  Suit Up

Sounds simple but it helps a lot with your motivation. This is all a mental game letting your mind know you still have a routine to follow. I know wearing your jammies is tempting. DONT DO IT! Dress as you would for work.

 

#2 Stick to Your Working Hours

This is a very important rule to NOT overdoing work. People tend to work more when working from home. Avoid that BURNOUT. Lock in your 8 hours of sleep.

 

#3 Work in a Dedicated Space

It is tempting to work in your bed. DONT DO IT! Try to work in a separate room with no TV and yes, NO NETFLIX!! If you leave your room you are out of your “office”. This helps seperate your work from your free time.

 

#4  Limit Distractions

 

Like I said before, This ain’t no Netflix and chill!! Put that phone on vibrate turn off that gaming console and TV OFF!!

 

#5 Be Transparent

Your colleagues don’t know what your up to . Make sure to keep them up to date about what your working on.

 

#6 Stay Active

Try to exercise during the day! The daily walks to the coffee machine and the conference room are GONE! Try to compensate this with exercise.

 

Stay Safe!

These are tough times for many of us. I know going to happy hour and hanging out at starbucks are both very tempting and very missed but lets do our thing to kick this virus in the ass!! Stay home and stay safe.
