Why isn’t your Website performing? If users can't find the sense and order they need, they soon grow exasperated and leave. Reasons >
The user says: How do you expect to extract my money if you couldn't even attract my attention. The audience can't give you money while they're rubbing their eyes or scratching their heads. You’re a user : you agree that it makes perfect sense Here is why >
DON’T DECORATE, COMMUNICATE 1- The more elaborate the design, the greater the risk of confusion: Over-excitable, over-design layouts fail miserably 2- Know your audience (RESPECTIVE GENERATION) 3- Focus on design that draws attention to the message , not to itself: design that serves your Website visitors rather than dazzle them. 4- Don’t design for self interest : Vanity is toxic to Website objectives.

Metric : measures the effectiveness of your research, development, design and strategic efforts.
Design is no longer a shady chance . Pre-testing your design is no longer a fiction Today, the smarter strategy is design it, Pre test it , measure it, launch it
THE ERA OF ENGAGEMENT Customer/user engagement places sustainability on a higher altitude, more strategic context and is premised on the understanding that a fully engaged consumer is a QUALIFIED customer and a potential LOYALIST .

You designed a Website and you’re now ready to launch it live. The million dollar question is : Prior to launching your Website, HOW do you know if it will engage your audience and achieves it objective?
Let us participate in two scenarios and as a user, take a your brain to the gym and see the design from a user’s point of view .
scenario 1 Take a look at the next Website design. Observe if for 5 seconds then ONLY when you ready, go to the next slide and compare your engagement process: Attention, eye fixation, and emotional level with the actual LAB results
Note: this site is not launched yet Yet, we can we safely say that your experience matches the LAB test results almost accurately? Go here to see the project design progress.
The question is how? and why? Please go back and verify your engagement results once more . We also encourage you to send this presentation to as many friends as you possible can, so you can confirm the the engagement level similarity.
Design is no longer just a shady chance. Today, the smarter strategy is design it, Pre test it , measure it, launch it
ANALYSIS RESULTS Take a moment and examine cast #1 facial intensity: The green zone intensity v.s. the intensity of cast #2 Can we safely say that you TRUSTED CAST #1 more? You questioned the integrity of cast #2 Especially when you gazed intensely at his right eye.
Cast analysis is commonly used determine the level of consumer trust when exposed to the CAST facial expression. Consumers are heuristically driven and connect with the messenger on a much deeper level before proceeding to action. It is crucial when choosing imagery. INSURE that the image of cast will win consumer’s trust. SEND IT TO US FOR ANALYSIS
W ords and copywriting are deadbeat if they don’t engage .
Writing is an engaging art, it must take the reader into a journey where they can live and engage in an experience , and imagine its potentials ahead.

SCRIPT results Assuming that to top part is not relevant and focus only on the text below. When we read, we don’t actually read but we scan for specifics. This Ad failed miserably and we know why. There several deficiencies That resulted in NO engagement at all Do you know what they are?
Believe. THE PROCESS IS Artificial Intelligence (AI) A salient [ neuroscientific term:relevance ] simulation of the human attention /emotional engagement. Artificial intelligence (AI): A robotic/scientific process and its physiological / Neurological relation to human behavior
the why. Emotional engagement In the 21 st century , the role of emotion has never been so particularly significant . Neuroscience advocates that emotions play a influential role not only in human engagement level but also the memorizing process, and is a significant biological dynamic that gives its objective value and meaning .
the why. “ The new discipline of Neuromarketing , whose conclusions are sufficiently reliable to take their place alongside more traditional market research methodologies, offering both confirmation for their findings and invaluable additional insights into the mental processes underlying consumer decision making and behavior” neuroco
the HOW. Knowing the manual off heart does not give a license to drive, does it?
The how. THE EMIPIRCAL PROCESS: KNOWING HOW TO DRIVE THE THEORY This is what NEUROSCIENCE can’t give us. Neuroscience gives us the the road sign manual but if we don’t know how to negociate what the road throws at us, we end up over the cliff.

DEFINITION OF HUMAN MACHINE INTERACTION (HMI) A discipline devoted to the user interface design, implementation and evaluation of interactive computing for human users and the study of major phenomena surrounding them. 1- Humans only understand and better process human language 2- Humans interact and communicate better when they understand ( Ergonomics or website harmony ) 3-Do you adapt to fit the user? or expect the user to adapt to you?
So Why HMI’s ? Simple: interface design disparities are very elaborate and needs understanding prior to design implementation process: It’s about limiting perception and action e.g. HUMAN FRUSTRATION 1- Users: who’s who= what generation? ( demographics no longer relevant) 2- Application areas 3- Usage contexts 4- Computer constraints, (platform, browsers etc.) 5- Users hates and likes (imperative) 6- More on HMI here
Examples of bad user interface designs: 1- Unclear or ambiguous wording 2- Unnecessary features 3- Poorly structured ergonomics 4- Multi uncontrolled popup windows 5- Unknown or forgotten context 6- Cloned design >
