Unconscious and eye tracking - CX Research

Published on

I really want to help people discover that:

- Data from poor market research methods add no value to business decisions and are ignored by senior execs

- Understanding human unconscious is critical in marketing and no, you don’t know much about what really drives your customers. Certainly nothing about how or why they do what they do.

- Marketing budgets are simply wasted if no-one looks at your stuff and this is avoidable.

- A s**t ad is a shit ad, no matter where you stick it.

  • When I was back in Australia last I watched Despicable Me on the TV. In the ad breaks I counted the number of ads that were played. Each ad break went 10 ads, 9 ads, 8 ads, 9 ads in a row. What?! The TV stations are making the ad break so long that people are most certainly turning to their tablet, phone, kitchen, partner, toilet and not looking at the screen.
  • So why are brands continuing to spend money on TVCs? How many of you sit in front of the TV with one other device? Hands up?And 2?And 3? … C’mon and see me later
  • Around the turn of last century, William Hesketh Lever said, " Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted, and the trouble is I don’t know which half!   Back then, marketing options were limited to radio, newspapers & magazines.  But nothing much has changed these days
  • How many of you arrive home at night, eager to open your junk mail?
  • What about on your computer. Are you still excited when, beep, another email arrives. I think not!
  • Out of Home advertising just doesn’t have the impact you need it to anymore either.The other day I was walking down George St near our office and, in the space of a block, I spotted not less than 30 people on their phone! Do you think they were attending to billboards?
  • In KL last week, I noticed that there has been an explosion of LED billboards. People do look at them, of course, the images change and that attracts your attention. But I doubt they remember much of the messaging, Most males in the room are terrible at multitasking and need to keep our eyes on the road ;) You can see it here In the day
  • Measuring and targeting your New MEDIA marketing investment with big data is not enough, don‘t rest easy thinking aBig ad agency will design a perfect 360 campaign, put it in the right places to solve your business problems.  
  • A shit ad will always be a shit ad, no matter where you put it.
  • We are all familiar with internal politics and the things that fuel it.We see a lot of company’s, like yours, where decisions are reliant on research that uses outdated methods like Focus Groups, Surveys and analytics. These methods tend to be of biased tell you nothing about why people do things and give no insight into the human unconscious which drives much of our behaviour. Observation, like OPHER mentioned, is a little better but sometimes it is not good enough.How do we challenge egotistical executives with research data they believe? By providing indisputable evidence about what, why and how people go about their business. Eye Tracking does this.
  • PSYCHOLOGISTS in the room, there are at least 3, including me. Who is this?Sigmund Freud, the Father of Psychoanalysis and the man who bought the term unconscious into our lexicon.
  • At any given moment, our brain is receiving a great deal of visual information from our surrounding environment – changes in visual space, colours, shapes, and movement of objects. We take in so much visual information that our brain SELECTIVELY FILTERS out unimportant visual data and stores it in our subconscious memory. Not to be dismissed, the subconscious mind has a great impact on our decision-making, thoughts, and behavior. Whether its using a website or app, glancing at an advertisement, or navigating a bank branch, visual information filtered into our subconscious memory influences how we react in these environments. If our subconscious thought, that we are unaware of, occupies 95% of our mind. How do we understand it?
  • The easiest way to do this is meditation and contemplative practice. This creates altered state of consciousness and allows access to the unconscious mind.
  • Or some people choose to use hypnotism, that puts you in the same state of heightened awareness.
  • Even the creative arts are said to have this affect.
  • And so does eye tracking. People’s eye gaze is largely controlled by the unconscious mind and in most cases our eyes respond before we think. When we use eye tracking to show people where they looked, this opens a door to their mind where we are able to probe, with them, why they were doing what they were doing.Observation is simply NOT GOOD enough because you will miss the human unconsciousWho has done eye tracking before? On things other than websites?

  • So how does this work? I will show you some eye tracking on different platforms that must be considered in a holistic CX journey.First example is of some eye tracking that was done with an eye tracker like this. SHOW physical EYE TRACKER.Has anyone seen this image?Describe image.
  • So how does this work? I will show you some eye tracking on different platforms that must be considered in a holistic CX journey.First example is of some eye tracking that was done with an eye tracker like this. SHOW physical EYE TRACKER.Has anyone seen this image?Describe image.
  • Describe image. Why do designers get so excited about this? It’s common sense isn’t in. After all, we are all human.

  • As everyone has said “CX IS NOT JUST DIGITAL”And now let’s look at eye tracking in a bank branch in Singapore. Our client wanted to find out what merchandising worked for customers and drove cross sell and upsell?We intercepted 90 people and asked them to wear THESE, while they waited in a queue…You see here, that, on average, when people are not playing candy crush or checking email on their phone, most of people’s attention is on the TV as they wait in the queue.

  • And statistically on average across all the people we tested it attracted way more attention. Luckily the bank didn’t remove the TVs like they were planning.

  • "Who here loves navigating though the Internet and clicking on banner ads” No-one?So why are wemarketing in a way that we know we would never act like?
  • To prove it, this is what happens. No-one looks at your ads. We can change this!

  • Advertising in social gaming ads?A recent eye tracking study showed that people don’t look at ads while they are playing a game. But if they are asked permission to watch the ad in return for a credit or life. Then that’s ok. DESCRIBEA great opportunity for MacDonalds to get some eye balls. They thought Pity my poor participant couldn’t work out how to start the ad and when it played and simply got irritated!
  • Now lets’ flip to the inside of an organisation, how do customers experience that and more importantly what is is like for the people on the phone?Majority of the 600 operators had no/very little computing experience outside of work (many operators did not know how to use a mouse). Also, the nature of the calls were time sensitive; customers were in a hurry to get off the phone and most calls lasted less than a minute.We conducted ethnographic research (contextual inquiry method) at the call centre, observing how operators dealt with customers and placed bets. Since calls were short and actions were performed very quickly, we used eye tracking to reveal the split-second interactions and decisions operators made during a call.
  • This is what the operators, and therefore the customers have to put up with. Fortunately, Objective Digital has been engaged to redesign the interface!

  • Or whilst driving? Dangerous that one!
  • And while this testing is going on, we have done away with large tomes for reports, instead choosing to get the client, designers and developers in the room and have them brainstorm and prioritize solutions while they are observing the test. Otherwise we know that they would just be emailing their colleagues anyway!THIS AGILE USABILITY PROCESS DOESN’T “TAKE TOO LONG” OR COST VERY MUCHThe reason that this agile brainstorming is successful is that when people observe the eye gaze of a participant in real time on the TV screen, they start to understand the issues and work out solutions right there and then.

    55. 55. But with eye tracking we are able to test HOW people are using their phones for mobile banking. Even if it is just the prototypes. We can test it, over and over again until it is right – and then, it can be released to the market, with a much smaller risk of people rejecting it because of usability issues.
