Marketing is the new UX frontier


Published on

User experience is traditionally thought of in the context of a service or product experience. Today, the marketing department is knocking on UX’s door to come out and play.
In this session I talk about the forces that are creating tighter connections between UX, Product, and Marketing teams. Drawing from my own experience as well as those of other startups, I show how UX and Marketing teams can work together, explain the connective tissues between these functions, and demonstrate how user experience design methods can be applied in a marketing setting.
