The 5 Worst UX Mistakes Websites Make | Web Project Management | Scoop.it
The user experience of websites has improved by leaps and bounds, but there are still sites out there that may leave you asking, “What were they thinking?!”
TonyaPriceConsulting's insight:

There are basically 3 generations using Websites and this article makes a great point of the different expectations and behavior patterns each bring with them when they interact with a site. If your team doesn't have a UX designer (and even if they do) be aware of these differences and make sure your site is providing what your readers need to be comfortable. Are you targetted at marketing to one generation over the other two? Great, your job is easier, but if you are addressing an older or younger generation or all three, then you want to know what each generation wants from a site.

No matter how either big or small your team is, if you send the wrong message, things are bound to go wrong. Why not use some piece of software in order to help you out with this paramount activity. If you have members of your team remotely working, then these tools are almost mandatory. All you have to do is to choose the one which fits better your needs.
