  19. 19. Photo UX24 Jan 2012• Persuasion / Influence /Direction / Explanation• Helps people processinformation and stories• Vital to sell an „experience‟• Helps people recognise anddiscriminate between things• Supports Scanning Visitors• Drives emotional responseshort.cx/YrBczl
  20. 20. • Very powerful and under-estimated area• I‟ve done over 20M visitor tests with peopleimages for a service industry – some tips:• The person, pose, eye gaze, facialexpressions and body language – causevisceral emotional reactions and big changesin behaviour• Eye gaze crucial – to engage you or to „point‟Photo UX24 Jan 2012
  21. 21. • 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 femaleand male images in test, female wins• Smile and authenticity in these examples isabsolutely vital• So, I have a question for youPhoto UX24 Jan 2012

  30. 30. How is it working out for me?• Methodologies are not Real Life ™• It’s about the mindset of the team and managers,not the tools or methodologies they play with• Not all my clients have all the working parts• You should not be a methodology slave – feel freeto roll your own• Use some, any techniques instead of ‘guessing’• Blending Lean and Agile UX with conversionoptimisation techniques is my critical insight fromthe last 5 years:Belron World Conversion Rate Increase:2009 +5%, 2010 +10%, 2011 +15%, 2012 +25%Rush : Conversion lift within 3 months77% increase in conversion, 33% for phone• Don’t over complicate it.
