Post to GDPR, Consider Less Invasive AI-based Analytics Methods.
In May this year, new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect. This new, stricter legislation has significant consequences for any online business that collects data about its customers.
To be successful in today’s crowded landscape, marketing agencies need more than just ideas: they need to bring data and insights to the table as well. Cocomore earns their clients' trust by incorporating a host of solutions to meet their customer’s goals, including EyeQuant.
Digital marketing experts know that having data is critical for understanding and improving digital performance for their clients. But all that data can sometimes be overwhelming - especially for clients and stakeholders who aren't accustomed to it. In order for insights to be shared and undrstood, raw data sometimes needs to be turned into something more meaningful and intuitive. In this case study we’ll show how Ambition Data uses EyeQuant to do just that.
It's become a mantra of today's designers to opt for clean designs. No matter if you're a B2B, eCommerce or SaaS company, limiting the amount of content on a page will almost always positively impact user engagement and conversions. This isn't only based on professionals' opinions and experiences either, but is also backed up by hard data. For example, we ran a study on 300 top websites from different industries and found that there's a clear relationship between how clean a design is and how well it keeps users on a site. Specifically, we found that cluttered designs, the opposite of clean design, lead to higher bounce rates across all industries. Yet, despite all the best practices and data, clutter can still be found all over the web.
Website heatmaps have been a popular analysis tool for years, and there are dozens of different vendors out there offering some form of heatmaps - whether they're measuring clicks, mouse movements, or other kinds of engagement.
A/B testing is a powerful method for testing design variants, but it's also expensive. Each test costs time, traffic, and development resources. Adding to the frustration, only one out of seven A/B tests generates any meaningful uplift in the first place. This means there's always a considerable risk that the test variants will underperform, cost immediate revenue and eat up time and money. Almost all conversion teams feel the strain of limited resources in one way or another.
The user experience starts way before anything is read or clicked. It only takes 50ms for users to form a first impression of your website. These are gut reactions that are emotional at heart and result from the way your site is designed. It can lead users to be excited, calmed, or even bored right as they land on the page. This is why it's important to make sure that your design evokes emotions that match your product or service.
There's a clear relationship between "clean" web design and user engagement.
As reported by Fast Company and Inc. Magazine, a new EyeQuant study has shown that there's a surprisingly strong relationship between the "visual clarity" of a website (as rated by an algorithm) and its bounce rate. In fact, the results suggest that up to one-third of a user's decision to stay or bounce comes down to a snap judgment of whether or not the page is too cluttered. In this post, we'll take a closer look at the data and the methodology behind the study.
