Other Experience
  • Usability for Conversion: Stop Using Fads, Start Using Data (Publication)
    There are many design tips out there that claim to be universal solutions for achieving high conversion rates. However, in this article, Toptal Freelance Designer Joel Lopez suggests avoiding these trends or fads and encourages us to instead thoughtfully collect data to inform the design of our products. Although some quick-fix design moves may achieve high conversion rates in a product's early years, they don't lend themselves to establishing long-term user trust. Joel argues that this trust is essential to keep users coming back to promote your products.
