  • What is Usability and User Experience? a short case study...
  •  
  • Matthew Lawson, Head of conversion at Appliances Online “ I introduced user-centered design, but I had to get the business bought into it. So I did this by buying 125 videos from WhatUsersDo, where you set a task for a customer to go away onto your site and try and make a purchase”
  • “ This gave us 250 hours of footage which was too much content to watch through. So I used crowd sourcing... we gave five videos to each senior manager including the CEO and this gave us insight into what we needed to change from our proposition, the size of the images to where we put the buy button and it actually gave our customers a voice which went directly to the managers ”
  • What is Usability and User Experience? Results?
  • 9.5% increase in sales 37% more visitors viewed product videos 11% increase in customer reviews 33% reduction in calls about delivery
