What Is UX Audit?
A User Experience Audit (UX Audit) is a quality assurance (QA) process that identifies problematic aspects of a digital product, demonstrating which features are frustrating for the users.
In a UX design audit, the website performance is carefully examined and assessed from the user's viewpoint. The audit tries to spot any previously overlooked problems. Based on usability testing, and user testing, a UX audit report reveals crucial areas for your site’s improvement.
Why Do You Need to Conduct a UX Audit?
UX Audit is a handy tool for those who are looking to pinpoint usability issues in their digital products. It will assist you in identifying problematic areas that cause users to quit your site.
The following are some of the benefits of a UX audit for your website:

When Should You Do a Website UX Audit?
A website UX audit can be performed before a significant revamp of your website, or if user engagement and conversion rates are poor. In order to determine whether the product still satisfies its users' needs and fundamental usability principles, UX audits can also be carried out proactively, such as twice a year.
In order to make sure a product satisfies both business and user experience objectives, businesses may also plan recurring UX audits. At various stages of a website's life cycle, a UX audit might be beneficial.

3-Step UX Audit process
Research: Briefing, Benchmarking, User research
Before conducting a UX audit, we define the goals and know what to expect from customers, budget, and timelines.
We Identify the customers and their personas to see if current users match the targeted users. Besides user personas, we extract valuable information about customers from stakeholder interviews and conduct competitor analysis.
A heuristic evaluation during a UX audit, in more concrete words, is having a team of designers assess your product while keeping an eye out for any heuristic problems. Nielsen's usability heuristics are the most popular set that experts employ.
Performing a competitive analysis in UX design helps companies identify competitors’ strengths and weaknesses relative to their own business, product, and design. The insight designers gain through competitive analysis research helps them develop better products and more effective UX designs
We utilize a number of approaches to perform the UX audit assessment by sending out a group of designers to complete -
- Sitemap and wireframes: Wireframes give more accurate depictions of the layout of the project as well as give a glimpse of how the final project will look like.
- Final screens: We export the final designs to the client that includes all the screens for the features including different states and edge cases, as well as a mobile version.
Execution: Style guide and GUI design
Style guide in UX: We record an expanding and constantly changing collection of design guidelines that come up during the design process. Design principles are a set of rules that affect how designers approach to resolve issues. We propose a style guide that is best suitable for the product/service.
GUI (Graphic User Interface) design: Involves how users interact with the visuals of a design created.

A good UX design with a UX Audit is a powerful duo to improve user retention on your website ultimately increasing engagement and sales.
During the audit stage, the blocking points identified will be consolidated by UX analysis which is carried out from actual user experience through user tests.
Any product, project, or service must have user acceptance. A good rule of thumb is to test early and frequently. Businesses simply fail if their customers are dissatisfied. Make yours happy by providing a good user experience.
