Visualize a condition where you have built a classic product with the best potential features, your marketing campaign has hit just appropriately and there is a big buzz of your brand around. You satisfyingly demand the sales reports and notice there is slag in businesses. Potential buyers notice your product but never actually want to purchase it. Painful Right?
Often alike occurrences happen with websites or a smartphone application after launch. Each of the details like a beautiful design, immense features, and great marketing campaign hit the bull’s eye. But there is very limited retention of the visitor with the merest conversion.
The prime reason for this type of user behaviour is the flaws in UX. Product development is a mixture of art and science. Covering every corner of the product does not make a website fit to give business. You need to join built corners firmly with the most attractive and simplistic layer of UX (user experience).
A user has 300% more chances to bounce back if She/he did not enjoy the experience while using the product. The user experience is not just limited to the elegant design of the website. It covers all that a user experiences in the front and backend of the platform. From loading time to navigation and even the checkout system everything is a bit of UX.

Hopefully, every designer has a set of knowledge on human physiology, user flow and behavior, strategy, and best practices. A UX designer has a clear idea of when things work.
