B2C Vs. B2C, It’s all about persuading people

At the end of the day, whether you are selling to Joe Customer who is interested in a motorcycle or Joe Business Guy who is interested in a Zerox some factors will never change. To even worry about them is folly. Consider this…

Joe Customer and Joe Business are HUMAN BEINGS both have dreams, goals, motivations, and buying preferences.  How much different would their approach…

Invisible Navigation

January 6th, 2005

From GUUUI we read the following

Most web development projects put a lot of effort into the design of navigation tools. But fact is that people tend to ignore these tools. They are fixated on getting what they came for and simply click on links or hit the back button to get there. Read the entire article.

Why weren’t we surprised? Could be that in 2001 our very own lovable persuasion guru Bryan Eisenberg wrote the following…

Clearly, the center area…

A Few Things You Might Have Missed

November 24th, 2004

Just a hi-light of a few articles you may have missed over the last week or so.

First, Bryan Eisenberg’s most recent ClickZ article debunks one of the internets biggest myths… Price Is Not King.  Sometimes trying to win the price game will get you nothing but a bunch of parasitical customers who latch on and feed on your profits.  Bryan shows the alternative to offering the lowest price on your site by increasing your site’s personal experience factor.

Debunking Miller’s Magic 7 in Web Design

November 1st, 2004

Miller's Magic 7Bottom Line: Miller’s Magic 7 has NOTHING to do with building a persuasive website. Don’t let your website design decisions be bound by outdated science.

Miller’s Magic 7 has been bandied about in web design circles for years, and many site designs have been conceived under the premise of George Miller’s 1956 article about the ability of humans to retain in a total of 7 plus or minus 2 items in working memory.

In his most recent ClickZ article Bryan Eisenberg lays…
