Try reciprocity If you demand an email as barter for a download, people will be more likely to give you their "email address for junk email" or simply to abandon the download. A better approach is to give away the download and THEN ask for the email, with a good reason. You'll get better quality email addresses by doing something nice, first, and then ...

In order to make users share their e-mail addresses you should show all benefits which users may get after doing so. they can provide you feedback about free feature which they just downloaded and you can improve it based on their needs; they can tell you in which other features/tools they also may be interested ( you can use this in order to build more ...

If you're offering a free resource, then most savvy user's generally think to themselves "what's the catch?". So it's not a great surprise that with these free resources come with a caveat of signing up to a mailing list or divulging some information, usually your email address. What you need to do is create a balance between asking for not too much in ...

Is this what you're looking for? In this one I grayed out the end time box because Run until completion is selected by default. To make it easier for the user, I also put a default value into the text boxes. For example, for the start time you can put the time an hour from now, or the time that the users computer is least likely to be used (or anything ...

If you look at a large ecommerce site like Amazon, "categories" aren't really treated as definitive categories where a product belongs to a single category. They act more like a predefined set of tags. A product can belong under multiple categories. Example from Amazon Some shoppers may care about the material of the shower, others may care that it's ...

I don't know of any standards for this - I don't think I've ever seen a remote control like the one illustrated. It's somewhat reminiscent of a TV remote, using arrow cursors to move around, but has much fewer buttons than today's TV remote. I would use text along with row-of-buttons symbol. "Command bar" seems better to me than "Sub menu", maybe you'd have ...

I've heard people complaining about that very often. Maybe you can try to expose to your advertising campaign only people who are not customers yet. If you are promoting a deal for new customers on your website, you can use cookies and other technologies to not show the deal to returning visitors, or to registered users. Of course there will be people ...

I don't have actual research, but from anecdotal cases, I think the answer is YES. It turns your service into a commodity, customers switch constantly to get the cheapest deal. Example - Telecomm (Cable & Internet Providers) Here in Canada, we do not have a large selection of cable/internet providers. The "Big 3": Bell, Telus, Shaw owning majority of ...

I don't think this question has a clear answer and we can only speculate where things are going. However, a very interesting question nonetheless and here are my two cents. With smart watches I think (touch) screens can't get much smaller and stay useful. Apple already acknowledged this by placing 'the crown' on the watch, givin' the user tactile feedback ...

I think UX influences IOT and not the other way round. Placing technology before experience will result in bad design. I would like to quote Steve Jobs here: " You’ve got to start with the customer experience and work backwards to the technology. You can’t start with the technology and try to figure out where you’re going to try to sell it. And I’ve ...

I would urge you to always give users the option to opt out. If a user doesn't want to read something they're not going to, forcing them to click on it will only become an annoyance. Think of it like a terms of service agreement. You're forced to read them even though most people don't care whats in it. Even though the developer put in code to make you ...

You can draw parallels with Facebook privacy settings (not sure if its the best example but users managed to figure out how to use it ) where you can put your friends into groups and define which content is accessible by which groups http://www.sexysocialmedia.com/facebook-privacy-matters/

I don't believe the ratio of views to "likes/kudos" will negatively affect the user. The way I see it the internet is successful because it gives average people the ability to reach tons of people they normally wouldn't be able to. Being able to see how many people you reached makes it worth posting content for them to see. If you posted an article and all ...
