Friction is any part of the conversion process that can frustrate or confuse a user. While some friction is an unavoidable part of the conversion process, the amount of friction visitors encounter varies greatly across web properties.
Fortunately, with the right skills and toolset, we can make the conversion process more user-friendly, thus reducing friction and generating more revenue for our clients.
Mike Perla, Director of Conversion Optimization, will shed light on:
What role usability plays in conversion rate optimization
How audience can dictate functionality
Heuristic evaluation of UI
Reducing friction with decision support tools
Overcoming objections with hard evidence
