What's a Digital Speed Bump? πŸ›£ πŸ›‘


Used metaphorically to describe any obstacle or hindrance that slows or hinders the smooth flow of user interactions and #userexperience on websites or digital platforms.

Speed bumps can take various forms, and addressing them is crucial for creating a seamless and efficient online user experience. For example:


Slow Loading Times: If a website, application or platform takes too long to load, users may become impatient and abandon the journey.


Complex Navigation: Complicated or confusing navigation can impede users from finding the information - or action they wish to perform - quickly and easily. The result? User impatience & abandonment.


Unintuitive Design: Websites or platforms that lack user-friendly design elements, or have confusing layouts, create user friction. The result? Again, user impatience & abandonment.


Lack of Mobile Optimization: In today's mobile-centric world, websites or platforms not optimized for various devices can create a frustrating experience for users accessing them on smartphones or tablets. The result? Again, user impatience & abandonment.


Ineffective Calls to Action: If a call to action (CTAs) is unclear or not strategically placed, users may struggle to take desired actions impacting desired KPIs & revenue goals.


Security Concerns: Issues related to online security, such as intrusive pop-ups or unclear privacy policies, can make users hesitant to engage. The result? Again, user abandonment.
