  • “A piece of paper with your design mockup. A customer in a shop or bookstore. Their finger is their mouse, the paper their screen. Where would they click? Do they know what these labels mean? Do they see the major routes out of the page? Any barriers.Congratulations, you just got feedback on your design, before writing a single freaking line of code or asking your developers to keep changing stuff.”
  • This stuff is important. What do photographs do?Well they help me persuade people, influence their thinking, give them directions or cues and explain things – this is the scanning generation!And they’re very powerful when selling experiences, stories or using the power of social proofThey help people very quickly (more quickly than reading) discriminate, evaluate – work out what stuff is, how it’s organized, what the things are, what’s being shown to you.And most importantly, they drive emotional response in people. Whether you like being soggy, wet and without toilet paper for a 30 mile radius or not, a picture like this gets a RESPONSE! Work it!Lastly, a shout out to James Chudley, who’s book this example comes from.
  • So this is quite a powerful area – what about people images?I’ve tested quite a few of these – in over 20 countries and over 15 languages. What did I find?Well - the person, pose, eye gaze, facial expressions and body language – cause visceral emotional reactions and big changes in behaviour. The difference between a crappy image and one optimised to get the right response is huge.And one interesting thing Eye gaze is pretty crucial – to engage you, the viewer, or to ‘point’ or draw eye gaze and attention to a product. I’ve tested all angles of viewing and in these people images, the best view is straight at the viewer or slightly away. Any further and the conversion rate drops. It makes a difference I can count.
  • Add unique phone numbers to all your mobile sites and apps. That’s for starters.Then configure your analytics to collect data when people Click or Tap to make a phone call.Make sure you add other events like ringbacks, email, chat – any web forms or lead gen activity too.
  • Tomorrow - Go forth and kick their flabby low converting asses

  • 12 things to do before your company dies 23rd Oct 2013 @OptimiseOrDie
  • Timeline + Tweet me! - 1998 1999 - 2004 2004-2008 2008-2012 @OptimiseOrDie
  • SEO PPC UX Analytics Design Development QA Performance A/B and Multivariate testing Customer Satisfaction 40+ websites, 34 countries, 19 languages, €1bn+ revenue 8 people @OptimiseOrDie
  • If you‟re not a part of the solution, there‟s good money to be made in prolonging the problem
  • Out of my comfort zone… @OptimiseOrDie
  • Behind enemy lines… @OptimiseOrDie
  • Nice day at the office, dear? @OptimiseOrDie
  • Competition… @OptimiseOrDie
  • Traffic is harder! SEO/PPC @OptimiseOrDie
  • Panguin tool…
  • #1 : Fix your broken Analytics! @OptimiseOrDie
  • #1 : Fix your broken Analytics! @OptimiseOrDie
  • #1 : Common problems (GA) • Dual purpose goal page – One page used by two outcomes – and not split • Cross domain tracking – Where you jump between sites, this borks the data • Filters not correctly set up – Your office, agencies, developers are skewing data • Code missing or double code – Causes visit splitting, double pageviews, skews bounce rate • Campaign, Social, Email tracking etc. – External links you generate are not setup to record properly • Errors not tracked (404, 5xx, Other) – You are unaware of error volumes, locations and impact • Dual flow funnels – Flows join in the middle of a funnel or loop internally • Event tracking skews bounce rate – If an event is set to be „interactive‟ – it can skew bounce rate (example) @OptimiseOrDie
  • #1 : Solutions • Get a Health Check for your Analytics – Try @prwd, @danbarker, @peter_oneill or ask me! • Invest continually in instrumentation – Aim for at least 5% of dev time to fix + improve • Stop shrugging : plug your insight gaps – Change „I don‟t know‟ to „I‟ll find out‟ • Look at event tracking (Google Analytics) – If set up correctly, you get wonderful insights • Would you use paper instead of a till? – You wouldn‟t do it in retail so stop doing it online! • How do you win F1 races? – With the wrong performance data, you won‟t @OptimiseOrDie
  • #2 : Get the right inputs Insight - Inputs Opinion Cherished notions Marketing whims Cosmic rays Not ‘on brand’ enough Ego IT inflexibility Panic Internal company needs #FAIL Competitor change An article the CEO read Some dumbass consultant Competitor copying Dice rolling Guessing Knee jerk reactons Shiny feature blindness @OptimiseOrDie
  • #2 : Get the right inputs Insight - Inputs Usability testing Forms analytics Search analytics Voice of Customer Market research Eye tracking Customer contact A/B and MVT testing Big & unstructured data Insight Social analytics Session Replay Web analytics Segmentation Sales and Call Centre Surveys Customer services Competitor evals @OptimiseOrDie
  • #2 : Solutions • Usability testing and User Centred design – If you‟re not doing this properly, you‟re hosed • Champion UX+ - with added numbers – (Re)designing without inputs + numbers is guessing • You need one team on this, not silos – Stop handing round the baby (I‟ll come back to this) • Ego, Opinion, Cherished notions – fill gaps – Fill these vacuums with insights and data • Champion the users – Someone needs to take their side! • You need multiple tool inputs – Let me show you my shortlist… @OptimiseOrDie
  • #3 : Get the right tools Insight - Inputs @OptimiseOrDie
  • 3.1 - Session Replay • • • • • Vital for optimisers & fills in a ‘missing link’ for insight Rich source of data on visitor experiences Segment by browser, visitor type, behaviour, errors Forms Analytics (when instrumented) are awesome Can be used to optimise in real time! Session replay tools • Clicktale (Client) • SessionCam (Client) • Mouseflow (Client) • Ghostrec (Client) • Usabilla (Client) • Tealeaf (Hybrid) • UserReplay (Server) www.clicktale.com www.sessioncam.com www.mouseflow.com www.ghostrec.com www.usabilla.com www.tealeaf.com www.userreplay.com @OptimiseOrDie

  • 3.2 - Feedback / VOC tools • • • • Anything that allows immediate realtime onpage feedback Comments on elements, pages and overall site & service Can be used for behavioural triggered feedback Tip! : Take the Call Centre for beers • Kampyle www.kampyle.com • Qualaroo www.qualaroo.com • 4Q 4q.iperceptions.com • Usabilla www.usabilla.com
  • 3.3 - Survey Tools • Surveymonkey • Zoomerang • SurveyGizmo www.surveymonkey.com www.zoomerang.com www.surveygizmo.com (1/5) (3/5) (5/5) • For surveys, web forms, checkouts, lead gen – anything with form filling – you have to read these two: Caroline Jarrett (@cjforms) Luke Wroblewski (@lukew) • With their work and copywriting from @stickycontent, I managed to get a survey with a 35% clickthrough from email and a whopping 94% form completion rate. • Their awesome insights are the killer app I have when optimising forms and funnel processes for clients. @OptimiseOrDie
  • 3.4 - UX Crowd tools Som, feedback Remote UX tools (P=Panel, S=Site recruited, B=Both) Usertesting (B) www.usertesting.com Userlytics (B) www.userlytics.com Userzoom (S) www.userzoom.com Intuition HQ (S) www.intuitionhq.com Mechanical turk (S) www.mechanicalturk.com Loop11 (S) www.loop11.com Open Hallway (S) www.openhallway.com What Users Do (P) www.whatusersdo.com Feedback army (P) www.feedbackarmy.com User feel (P) www.userfeel.com Ethnio (For Recruiting) www.ethnio.com Feedback on Prototypes / Mockups Pidoco Verify from Zurb Five second test Conceptshare Usabilla www.pidoco.com www.verifyapp.com www.fivesecondtest.com www.conceptshare.com www.usabilla.com 25

  • 3.6 – Collaboration tools Oh sh*t @OptimiseOrDie
  • 3.6 – Basecamp (Project management) @OptimiseOrDie
  • 3.6 – Join.me (free screen sharer)
  • 3.6 – Trello (task & project) @OptimiseOrDie

  • 3.6 – Cloud Collaboration (feedback) • Webnotes & Protonotes @OptimiseOrDie
  • 3.6 – Cloud Collaboration (feedback) • Conceptshare @OptimiseOrDie
  • 3.7 – Split testing tools – Cheap! • Google Content Experiments bit.ly/Ljg7Ds • Multi Armed Bandit Explanation bit.ly/Xa80O8 • Optimizely www.optimizely.com • Visual Website Optimizer www.visualwebsiteoptimizer.com @OptimiseOrDie
  • 3.7 – Split test funnies • Many tests fail due to QA or browser bugs – Always do cross browser QA testing – see resources • Don’t rely on developers saying ‘yes’ – Use your analytics to define the list to test • Cross instrument your analytics – You need this to check the test software works • Store the variant(s) seen in analytics – Compare people who saw A/B/A vs. A/B/B • Segment your data to find variances – Failed tests usually show differences for segments • Watch the test and analytics CLOSELY – After you go live, religiously check both – Read this article : stanford.io/15UYov0 @OptimiseOrDie
  • #3 : Summary – the minimum! • Session replay tools – Clicktale, Tealeaf, Sessioncam and more… • Cheap / Crowdsourced usability testing – See the list in this deck • Voice of Customer / Feedback tools – 4Q, Kampyle, Qualaroo, Usabilla and more… • A/B and Multivariate testing – Optimizely, Google Content Experiments, VWO • Email, Browser and Mobile Device Testing – You don‟t know if it works unless you check @OptimiseOrDie
  • #4 : Go Agile @OptimiseOrDie
  • Methodologies - Lean UX “The application of UX design methods into product development, tailored to fit Build-Measure-Learn cycles.” Positive – – – – – – Lightweight and very fast methods Realtime or rapid improvements Documentation light, value high Low on wastage and frippery Fast time to market, then optimise Allows you to pivot into new areas Negative – Often needs user test feedback to steer the development, as data not enough – Bosses distrust stuff where the outcome isn’t known @OptimiseOrDie
  • Agile UX / UCD / Collaborative Design “An integration of User Experience Design and Agile* Software Development Methodologies” *Sometimes Research Positive – User centric – Goals met substantially – Rapid time to market (especially when using Agile iterations) Negative – Without quant data, user goals can drive the show – missing the business sweet spot – Some people find it hard to integrate with siloed teams – Doesn’t’ work with waterfall IMHO Wireframe Concept Analyse Prototype Test @OptimiseOrDie
  • CRO @OptimiseOrDie
  • Lean Conversion Optimisation “A blend of User Experience Design, Agile PM, Rapid Lean UX Build-Measure-Learn cycles, triangulated data sources, triage and prioritisation.” Positive – A blend of several techniques – Multiple sources of Qual and Quant data aids triangulation – CRO analytics focus drives unearned value inside all products Negative – Needs a one team approach with a strong PM who is a Polymath (Commercial, Analytics, UX, Technical) – Only works if your teams can take the pace – you might be surprised though! @OptimiseOrDie
  • 5 - Lean CRO Inspection Instrument Immersion Learn Identify Triage & Measure Triangulate Outcome Streams @OptimiseOrDie
  • #4 : Solutions – Agile • Design your own methodology Experiment and optimise with your team • Don’t be a slave The methodology is the slave, not your master • Ask me later… Questions – see me on Twitter, G+ or ask by mail • Collaborative working – Harvard study into teams – it‟s an „all the time’ thing @OptimiseOrDie
  • #5 : Build a volume testing culture @OptimiseOrDie
  • #5 : Common issues • How many tests do you complete a month? – Without volume, you won‟t get as much attention or traction • Vanity testing takes hold – Getting one test done a quarter? Still showing it a year later? • Not enough resource – You MUST hire, invest and ringfence time and staff for CRO • Testing has gone to sleep – Some vendors have a „rescue‟ team for these accounts • You keep testing without buyin at C-Level – If nobody sees the flower, was it there? • You haven’t got a process – just a plugin – Insight, Brainstorm, Wireframe, Design, Build, QA test, Monitor, Analyse. Tools, Process, People, Time -> INVEST • IT or release barriers slow down work – Circumvent with tagging tools – Develop ways around the innovation barrier @OptimiseOrDie
  • #5 : Testing Culture tips • Gamble in the office – Encourage betting in the office – Get people to make a prediction, get them hooked • Put BIG pictures on the wall – Make people stop and ask questions – Encourage betting in the office • Market the results like a pro – Market this stuff internally like a PR agency – Send emails around, put on the intranet, optimise internally • Offer a company wide prize – – – – – Offer a prize for best hypothesis that makes it to a test Do a monthly or quarterly award – make it visible A great incentive to come up with provable, winning ideas Do NOT limit to the testing team Run a TESTATHON to generate bulk ideas @OptimiseOrDie
  • #6 : Execute faster @OptimiseOrDie
  • #6 : Execution problems • Silo Mentality means pass the product – No „one team‟ approach means no „one product‟ • The process is badly designed – It‟s set up to introduce delays or loops of tweaking • People mistake hypotheses for finals – Endless argument, tweaking means NO TESTING – let the test decide, please! • No clarity : authority or decision making – You need a strong leader to get things decided • Signoff takes far too long – Signoff by committee is a velocity killer – the CUSTOMER and the NUMBERS are the signoff • You set your target too low – Aim for a high target and keep increasing it @OptimiseOrDie
  • #6 : Execution solutions • Agile, One Team approach – Everyone works on the lifecycle, together • Hire Polymaths – T-shaped or just multi-skilled, I hire them a lot • Use Collaborative Tools, not meetings – Speeds up time to decide, iterate, resolve, remove defects • Smash down silos – a special mission – – – – Involve the worst offenders in the hypothesis team “Hold your friends close, and your enemies closer” Work WITH the developers to find solutions Ask Developers and IT for solutions, not apologies @OptimiseOrDie
  • #6 : Product cycles are too long Conversion 0 6 12 18 Months @OptimiseOrDie
  • #6 : Solutions • Give Priority Boarding for opportunities – The best seats reserved for metric shifters • Release more often to close the gap – More testing resource helps, analytics „hawk eye‟ • Kaizen – continuous improvement – Others call it JFDI (just f***ing do it) • Make changes AS WELL as tests, basically! – These small things add up • RUSH Hair booking – Over 100 changes – No functional changes at all – 37% improvement • Inbetween product lifecycles? – The added lift for 10 days work, worth 360k @OptimiseOrDie
  • #6 : Make your own cycles @OptimiseOrDie
  • #7 – Get Experienced • Persuasion / Influence / Direction / Explanation • Helps people process information and stories • Vital to sell an „experience‟ • Helps people recognise and discriminate between things • Supports Scanning Visitors • Drives emotional response short.cx/YrBczl 24 Jan 2012
  • Photo UX • Very powerful and under-estimated area • I‟ve done over 20M visitor tests with people images for a service industry – some tips: • The person, pose, eye gaze, facial expressions and body language – cause visceral emotional reactions and big changes in behaviour • Eye gaze crucial – to engage you or to „point‟ 24 Jan 2012
  • Photo UX • Negative body language is a turnoff • Uniforms and branding a positive (ball cap) • Hands are hard to handle – use a prop to help • For Ecommerce – tip! test bigger images! • Autoglass and Belron always use real people • In most countries (out of 33) with strong female and male images in test, female wins • Smile and authenticity in these examples is absolutely vital • So, I have a question for you @OptimiseOrDie
  • @OptimiseOrDie
  • Terrible Stock Photos : headsethotties.com & awkwardstockphotos.com Laughing at Salads : womenlaughingwithsalad.tumblr.com BBC Fake Smile Test : bbc.in/5rtnv @OptimiseOrDie
  • SPAIN +22% over control 99% confidence @OptimiseOrDie
  • @OptimiseOrDie
  • #8 : Get Multichannel • Not using call tracking – Look at Infinity Tracking (UK) – Get Google keyword level call volumes! • You don’t measure channel switchers – People who bail a funnel and call – People who use chat, go to store, use ringback, email etc. • You ‘forget’ mobile & tablet journeys – Walk the path from search -> ppc/seo -> site – Optimise for all your device mix & journeys • You’re responsive – Testing may now bleed across device platforms – Changing in one place may impact many others – QA, Device and Browser testing even more vital @OptimiseOrDie
  • #8 : Multichannel – cross device • • • • • • • • • One reason conversion is lower is channel jumps You need to try and glue this together Don’t rely on amazing analytics promises If you don’t have a strategy here, you need one You need to think about identifying the customer At every touch point and micro or macro interaction Loyalty, marketing, wifi, incentives, geo, instore = glue What’s your strategy on post identification? Do you rewrite the data or just ignore it? @OptimiseOrDie
  • #9 : Get Segmented on Testing • Averages lie – What about new vs. returning visitors? – What about different keyword groups? – Landing pages? Routes? Attributes • Failed tests are just ‘averaged out’ – You must look at segment level data – You must integrate the analytics + a/b test software • The downside? – You‟ll need more test data – to segment • The upside? – Helps figure out why test didn‟t perform – Finds value in failed or „no difference‟ tests – Drives further testing focus @OptimiseOrDie
  • #10 : Get stats training • Many testers & marketing people struggle – – – – – How long will it take to run the test? Is the test ready? How long should I keep it running for? It says it‟s ready after 3 days – is it? Can we close it now – the numbers look great! • A/B testing maths for dummies: – http://bit.ly/15UXLS4 • For more advanced testers: – Read this : http://bit.ly/1a4iJ1H • A stats course would be handy: – A decent guide for testing or marketing pros – Watch this space… @OptimiseOrDie
  • #11 : Hire and retain great analysts… • • • • • • • • • • Long topic – mail me for killer questions Pay above market rates – 10k less is not ROI Don‟t make them into report monkeys Find a knowledge sharer and trainer! Let them solve business problems Invest in the analytics, people, continually Pay extra for specialist help Give staff direct outcome connections Freedom to grow and learn is vital Help them fix broken stuff! @OptimiseOrDie
  • SUMMARY : The best Companies…. • • • • • • • • • • • • See the Maturity Model in the resource pack Invest continually in analytics instrumentation, tools, people Use an Agile, iterative, cross-silo, one team project culture Prefer collaborative tools to having lots of meetings Prioritise development based on numbers and insight Practice real continuous product improvement, not SLED Source photos and content that support persuasion and utility Have cross channel, cross device design, testing and QA Segment their data for valuable insights, every test or change Continually reduce cycle (iteration) time in their process Blend ‘long’ design, continuous improvement AND split tests Make optimisation the engine of change, not the slave of ego @OptimiseOrDie
  • So you want examples? • • • • • • • Belron Dell Shop Direct Expedia Schuh TSR Group Soundcloud • Gov.uk – – – – – – – – Ed Colley Nazli Yuzak Paul Postance (now with EE) Oliver Paton Stuart McMillan Pete Taylor Eleftherios Diakomichalis & Ole Bahlmann Adam Bailin (now with the BBC) Read the gov.uk principles : www.gov.uk/designprinciples And my personal favourites of 2013 – Airbnb and Expensify #PRWDReveal
  • #12 : Do things that don‟t scale • World Economic Forum‟s Technology Pioneers 2014 • Zero to $3Bn in 5 years – servicing a Wembley every night @OptimiseOrDie • FREE Professional Photography
  • 70 @OptimiseOrDie
  • 71 @OptimiseOrDie
  • Do things that don‟t scale: “It‟s better to have 100 people love you experience than Create the perfect 1,000,000 need to do however you like you” it and Brian Chesky, CEO, experience. then scale thatAirbnb It‟s creating an experience. And then its multiplying them. Too many people start with „how many you sell‟ and then they try to make it better. Brian Chesky, CEO, Airbnb @OptimiseOrDie
  • If it isn‟t working, you‟re not doing it right @OptimiseOrDie
  • Optimise Or Die • Unless you have a dominant natural or physical advantage, the playing field is open to anyone. • Unfettered customer ratings and comments are here to stay : Think “Net Promoter Score on Steroids” • Market leaders like Nokia, Blackberry, Best Buy, Borders, The Washington Post and Blockbuster all got hit – why not you? • One investor asks new startups : “What if Amazon did your thing?” • Airbnb, Uber, Lyft, Lovefilm, Spotify and Google (Analytics) are excellent examples of innovation competition. • You must design and scale an amazing customer experience to win • If your competitor is doing this stuff, you‟ll have to spend MUCH more to beat them. @OptimiseOrDie

  • 5 - Triage and Triangulation “This is where the smarts of CRO are – in identifying the easiest stuff to test or fix that will drive the largest uplift.” • • • • • • • • • • Starts with the analytics data Then UX and user journey walkthrough from SERPS -> key paths Then back to analytics data for a whole range of reports: Segmented reporting, Traffic sources, Device viewport and browser, Platform (tablet, mobile, desktop) and many more We use other tools or insight sources to help form hypotheses We triangulate with other data where possible We estimate the potential uplift of fixing/improving something as well as the difficulty (time/resource/complexity/risk) A simple quadrant shows the value clusters We then WORK the highest and easiest scores by… Turning every opportunity spotted into an OUTCOME 80
  • 5 - The Bucket Methodology “Helps you to stream actions from the insights and prioritisation work. Forces an action for every issue, a counter for every opportunity being lost.”  Test  Instrument If there is an obvious opportunity to shift behaviour, expose insight or increase conversion – this bucket is where you place stuff for testing. If you have traffic and leakage, this is the bucket for that issue. If an issue is placed in this bucket, it means we need to beef up the analytics reporting. This can involve fixing, adding or improving tag or event handling on the analytics configuration. We instrument both structurally and for insight in the pain points we’ve found.  Hypothesise This is where we’ve found a page, widget or process that’s just not working well but we don’t see a clear single solution. Since we need to really shift the behaviour at this crux point, we’ll brainstorm hypotheses. Driven by evidence and data, we’ll create test plans to find the answers to the questions and change the conversion or KPI figure in the desired direction.  Just Do It JFDI (Just Do It) – is a bucket for issues where a fix is easy to identify or the change is a no-brainer. Items marked with this flag can either be deployed in a batch or as part of a controlled test. Stuff in here requires low effort or are micro-opportunities to increase conversion and should be fixed.  Investigate You need to do some testing with particular devices or need more information to triangulate a problem you spotted. If an item is in this bucket, you need to ask questions or do further digging. 81
