How can UX design impact my revenue?

UX design directly impacts your bottom line. A huge impact UX has is decreasing customer acquisition costs by providing a better online experience for your product or service. A user experience designer can create more user friendly flows and take a look at your overall user experience from a high level to ultimately align with your business goals.

Why hiring a freelance UX designer is smarter

We recommend for startups that they hire a UX designer after they've collected initial data from customer and are looking to improve conversion or overall customer experience. You can also hire a UX designer before you start building but we'd usually recommend a product designer at this stage as they can build the initial brand and experience.

Hiring a UX designer at the initial stages of product design is a great choice for companies who are working on experiences that don't current exist in the market. For example for voice driven startups - we recommend a UX designer as first hire. When there is no one in the market doing anything similar, you'll need a UX designer to set the path.

When working with a UX specialistic we recommend starting hiring a part-time freelancer, rather than a full-time employee. Many companies utilize UX talent for optimization projects, so we suggest going one project at a time.
