  29. 43. Create meaningful segments
  30. 45. A user centric framework… Why do they visit the site? ? ? ? ? Who visits the site? What do they do on the site?
  31. 46. Happy Trackers (6%) Happy Trackers mainly use the site for Track and Trace and little else In terms of profile they tend to have a stronger business slant and be slightly older than on average They are not heavy users of the site and their visits are relatively light and narrow – all they do is use Track and Trace However they are happy with what they do, they rate the site functionality the best out of all the segments
  32. 47. Cottage Industrialists (2%) Cottage Industrialists are frequent users of the site and they mainly come looking for information on postal prices, delivery services, parcel information and the like. Half of this segment are involved in some type of online auction related activity and over the course of their lifetime they tend to look at the broadest amount of content on the site. Quite often they will be using the search function to do this They are reasonably happy with the customer experience on the site and are more likely than on average to recommend the site to others
  33. 48. The user centric framework…in action Why do they visit the site and what do they think of it? Who visits the site? What do they do on the site?
  34. 49. Most people who visit your website… <ul><li>Only visit once… </li></ul><ul><li>Only stay one minute… </li></ul><ul><li>Generally only look at one page… </li></ul><ul><li>Most likely only stay for one minute… </li></ul><ul><li>And probably only transact with you once </li></ul>
