How good user experience can help businesses?
In our day's user experience is one of the most crucial topics in the industry. Investing in a valuable user experience design can provide complete attention to the research, analysis, and testing of your product. These main factors can help you to improve the conversation rates and increase revenue. Also, it gives you the ability to significantly reduce your costs down the line and on the other hand to reduce any retain customers.
Keep in your mind that a user experience design is not about simply increasing sales or conversation, but it’s about providing a satisfying and enhancing experience to your users.
How can I be sure that your work will help my business grow?
In the work process, some things like creative design and effective communication are not exact science.

Furthermore, I make time to stay up to date about new technologies, trends in all my services. Also, this is a challenge to enhance my skills.

Of course! Please take a look at my testimonials and if you want to see anything, in particular, I have an extensive pdf portfolio. I would be happy to present to you some portfolio items that are more tailored to your requests and more specifically how I solved the problem based on user needs.
How much does your service cost?
This is based on the customization of the services that you want. Do you want to run a usability test? Or you want a deep study of user research? Do you have the wireframes and you want to make them feel more attractive? As you can understand this is similar to the type of burger you go i. Fast food has a different cost.
What are the resources that you needs to provide from me?
This depends on the services that you want to implement from my side. Generally, I will discuss or present with you the Business and organizational goals/plans, the functional requirements, and technical specifications.
Other resources include:previous user experience test results focused on the user experience, any further user analytics data and business reports.
How long does the process take?
The timeline of the project depends on some key points, as an example the main scope of the project, your priorities, and the goals of the project. This process could be done in a single stretch or as phases. A typical project could go anywhere between 3-6 months, but this depends on the side of the project (small-medium sized).
Do you test with real users?
It is always important to test the design with real users. This process also is called usability testing. In order to do this, I use an interactive prototype that exactly emulates the website/product before it’s coded.
This way offers insight into how satisfied users are with the product, and on the other hand saving time and money.
What are the design deliverables?
Initially, this depends on the main service that you want to implement. The deliverable key points contain user research reports, user persona, customer journey map, sitemap, information architecture, low-fidelity, and high fidelity prototypes.
Can you code?
I already have a background as a Web Designer, as you can understand I know the basics. These skills are in the scale to implement some mirror changes and on the other hand to elaborate on some major changes with the developers. I am afraid that coding is not one of my main skills.
As for anything else, let's discuss your basic requirements and I will be happy to find a suitable professional developer to help you out in that too.
How do I know if it's the right solution?
Every stage of the User Experience process is crucial and one of them is the prototyping and testing. This stage gives me insights into how the user interacts with the product. The key point is that there's no need to invest a lot of resources in the process of development. This way, allow me to anticipate and avoid a couple of serious issues with functionality and the design in the final version of the product.
Both sessions prototyping and user testing, along with the correct measurement before and after the process of redesigning, will give me important error-free numbers about the significance of the improvement and the impact that the redesign had on your business.
If you don't know how to do something I want, should I still contact you?

I have a network with a lot of active contracts and on the hand I am active in a lot of communities. I will be happy to refer you to one of any talent that you help to turn your project into reality.
