So, you’ve decided to bring your product to the market. But unfortunately, sales have been relatively low for your product, and you’re not sure why that is. If you’ve developed the world’s newest technical innovation, but you’re running low on sales, then the chances are high that you didn’t design your product well, or that your device doesn’t work. If your problems are more of the former, then you’re facing the challenge of dealing with faulty product design. Here are a few tips for you to consider in overhauling your plan of action for your product’s design.
Sleekness over bulkiness
A major turn-off for potential buyers is the bulkiness of products. Going big is a thing of the past as more and more devices are being designed to look sleeker and more compact while packing a considerable punch. Speakers are getting smaller, yet their effective range is getting larger. Your product’s adaptability to be practical while consuming the least space possible is a trend of present modernity. It’s a plus if your product can function in multiple terrain or weather conditions, and even more so if your product can work through charging for mobile use.
Implementing an effective user interface
Most consumers nowadays have a very short attention span. Products that are too complicated to use fall off in the competitive market, but on the other hand, products that are too simple are often passed off as inefficient or lacking in versatility. To traverse this fine line between too complicated and too dull, product designers have their work cut out for them to make a product that can be both flashy yet effective
CCL Design can help you bring the best out of your product by allowing you to have a personalised but efficient user interface system to use your product. The fan-favourite is membrane keyboards as they are cheap and durable in contrast to mechanical keyboards. Using a similar interface that’s familiar yet unique can help your customers get past the learning curve of learning how to use your product.
Making your brand recognisable
Having a great product is only half the battle. Online marketing plays a significant role in the sustainability and popularity of a product. More and more companies are taking advantage of the advertising opportunities that are provided by various social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. Gathering an audience online through ads in videos, posts, and tweets is becoming a more useful tool in promotion in contrast to the traditional forms of advertising through television advertisements and magazine ads.
Besides having a promotional presence on social media, your company’s responsiveness to customers plays a vital role in being recognised by other potential buyers. Reliable and effective customer service is just as valuable when it comes to developing your company’s brand together with your product’s reliability. By being open to dialogue and recommendations from your customers, you’ll be able to improve not just your PR but also your product’s effectiveness.
