  • - here ’ s a persons perception and response
  • - tie in this presentation to others today - designing for emotion in the next session - we all have opinions - we all know what we like - we all think we know what works - key is to take emotion out of our decisions - many people involved - how does this fit in with the team
  • - boss: different kinds, different moods. sometimes mind is completely somewhere else - academics / business : know their subject. assume everyone in the world is dying to know about what they do. also believe 10,000 word scientific papers are fine for general public - engineers / developers : we could never build your project in that amount of time. How come Lynx isn ’ t the most popular browser? - communications: tell our story. everything must be a story. big images rule. - consultants: sure, they ’ re trained and know what they ’ re doing, but they ’ re never around long. - be like spock: emotionless and carry a big tricorder

  • - viewed items - my recent searches - helps me know what my kids are up to on my ebay account “ trash packs ”
  • - get your pen lights out
  • - simplify the page - heat mapping and search data told us what the users were looking for and actually using - moving to responsive forces you to think about the mobile experience. - on a small screen, what should the user see first? - prioritize
  • - how much does our search traffic grow every day - related to our goals - using percent of capacity as the measure, not actual attendance - actual numbers are easily derived from percentage based on capacity of event - use an actual data point as the starting Y - events with the low actuals can ’ t really grow according to this model - percentages of growth are small - need more time OR... we ’ ll talk about this later.
  • - how did we do? - use actual numbers here (doesn ’ t matter)
  • - if you ’ re looking at a projection like this, what do you do? - move to smaller venue? - cancel - promote the hell out of it?
  • - what about this? - first, you need more data points at the start - daily - 17 days out: let ’ s do more. more ad words, A/B test, leverage other avenues/partners

  • Emotion and the team
  • Hello Tim,On your web pages A and B, under the"Heading goes here" heading, I am wondering if itwould be possible for you to change the "ButtonLabel" button to link to Page X, rather thandirectly to our Page Y? I have spoken with my teamand with our ____ unit, and there is keyinformation presented onPage X that we expect audience to have been exposedto prior to diving right into the Page Y, so itwould be ideal for them to be directed to that pagefirst.
  • “so it would be idealfor them to bedirected to that pagefirst”
