  • What I love about 'persuasive architecture' is that it's your top sales person and you can completely focus your efforts on her to maximize sales. NO trainees that need to start from zero each time, NO salesteam that needs repetitive trainings, NO HR turnover and tacit knowledge departing to competitors.

    In return, the hard part is giving her different faces appealing to multiple needs, evolving desires and diverging surfing behaviors & entry points. Looking at it from that perspective, E-commerce maturity does require constant learning, paint-overs and new influences. Being it the 31st of December, it is my hope to see more evolution on the latter aspect next year; How can we transform this optimized sales machine into a multifaced flexible personality?
