PATCHOGUE, N.Y., Oct. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Lounge Lizard is globally recognized as a top New York website design company within the website and mobile app development industry. Lounge Lizard's brandtenders are creative, tech-savvy, and passionate in developing innovative strategies that drive conversion for both startup and established clients of all industries, making them the "best of breed since 1998."
Forms are often necessary to obtain user information for future contacts, e-commerce, and consumer feedback. They can, however, fail to achieve their goals and cause user frustration if not executed in a way that solicits key information intuitively, with a focus on the user's experience. New York website design company, Lounge Lizard, offers four tips for form building.
1. Keep it simple. Identify the key information needed and create forms that address only the most vital information. Often, there is a push to obtain more information than the business needs to accomplish their goals. This leads to frustrated users that leave the site, often, never to return. Value the consumer's time as well as your own by prioritizing information needed to reach the business' goals and stick to that.
2. Utilize drop-downs and checkboxes as often as possible. Consumers don't enjoy filling out forms, and, with many people accessing forms via mobile devices, filling out forms needs to be made simple for usability. Excessive typing can be a big factor in visitors abandoning the site without completing the form. Utilize easier to use drop-downs and checkboxes wherever able to create a better user experience. When utilizing drop-downs, keep the most common answers grouped at the top to make the process quick and easy for users.
3. Group fields intuitively. Users are accustomed to providing information in a certain order, and when fields are created outside of what is deemed as standard, users can become confused. Anything that slows a user down could potentially lead to that user abandoning the form or site. Adhere to a universally used flow, such as name, company name, address, email, and credit card information.
4. Report errors immediately. One of the most frustrating aspects of filling out online forms is getting to the very end, just to find out that you need to go back to correct something at the top of the page. Even worse, is when other data that has been input clears out, making users re-fill certain fields when there was an error somewhere in the form. Add a prompt, such as a red arrow, to alert users to erroneous or missed information immediately, to provide a satisfactory user experience and to retain the consumer.
