  • We never stopped.
  • We never stopped. The snappy signs didn’t convince my parents.
  • The right content isn’t necessarily more content.

  • These people are waiting in a line.
  • @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 10 © 2014
  • These people are delighting in a line: they’re engaged, anticipating, discovering, creating memories. They’re in the moment. @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 11
  • Content affects experience… and a user’s perception of an experience. @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 12
  • @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 13 © 2014 You wait longer, but you’re engaged before you get there. You’re invested in the experience. Keri Maijala (@clamhead)
  • Content supports experiences for different media, devices, and users.
  • Publisher? Maybe. Persuader? Yes. @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 15
  • @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 16 © 2014 When people have a frustrating experience, they rate the checkout as slow. When we ask people what’s ‘slow,’ it’s the frustrating experiences. What’s fast? They say delightful experiences. Jared Spool (@jmspool)
  • Frustration, not speed, drives the perception of slowness. That was horrible and it took forever, no matter how fast it was.
  • @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 18 © 2014© jonandallie.blogspot.com
  • @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 19 © 2014 Little content supports the experience and one size fits all.
  • Is it enough just to speed it up?

  • @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 22 © 2014 Efficient isn’t always effective.
  • @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 23 © 2014 Efficient isn’t always effective.
  • Users say frustrating activities take forever. But are time-consuming activities also inherently frustrating? @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 24
  • © Charlotte & Kristian Septimius Krogh
  • @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 26 © 2014 Is the nature of the transaction so small and insignificant that it shouldn’t require a second thought? Don’t get in the way. Or will the consumer get to the final transaction after plenty of preliminary research? Again, don’t make them rethink it. Jared Spool (@jmspool)
  • Users can appreciate slow experiences: they’re engaged, anticipating, creating memories. They discover, learn, and pay attention to act deliberately. @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 27

  • @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 37 © 2014 “Springtime shaded belays at the creek, predawn starts in the Canadian Rockies and hut tours in the High Sierra: Anywhere brisk, the Down Sweater delivers featherweight, superbly compressible warmth.

  • @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 61 © 2014 Store growth fuels content availability
  • @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 62 © 2014 Our content strategy is pretty simple: we stay as close to our core market as possible. Patagonia’s always had a literary, storytelling component to the brand. It’s in line with what we say: buy less stuff and make sure what you buy lasts. Bill Boland, Patagonia
  • @mbloomstein | #SearchLove 63 © 2014 On a short-term basis, it doesn’t help us move product. It doesn’t meet your weekly sales goal. It’s not about short- term ROI. It’s something we enjoy and the people we build clothes for enjoy. Bill Boland, Patagonia
