Yesterday, I went to a website to make a donation for a friend who is running in the NYC Marathon. As I was finishing entering all my information and was on my last step I saw the following call to action: What’s wrong with this picture? How would you fix it? P.S. Extra credit if you can get this non-profit site (I won’t tell you who it is) to fix it since it must be costing them in money raised…

The Must Have Big Data Tools

In the column, “Claiming your Unfair Advantage, I describe four types of “Big Data” tools. Before I elaborate on these tools, I want to share a lesson from my friend Mark Huffman of P&G. When Mark joined the world’s largest advertiser in 1984, it was all about data analysis. “In God we trust,” one P&G marketer told him, “all others bring data!” Today, Mark is executive production manager at Procter & Gamble and is responsible for all integrated marketing.

Designing Effective Pricing Tables

There are way too many companies that have set up pricing tables with “packages” for their products without a solid understanding of the psychology behind package design. One of the first e-commerce companies to do this well was Dell. Nevertheless, while often imitated, many companies that offer software or services and offer it in different packages are simply playing monkey see, monkey do. Dan Ariely explains in his excellent book “Predictably Irrational” that, “Humans rarely choose things in absolute terms.…

Conversions: Whose Job Is It Anyway?

I just presented the keynote at the European Conversion Summit in Frankfurt, Germany. It was the best attended conversion-oriented conference I’ve attended to date. In a discussion with the conference organizer, André Morys, about the number and backgrounds of the people attending, André apologized that Germany was at least two years behind the United States.
