“At times, project teams favor one approach over another, but when you consider data from web analytics along with the behavior analysis of user experience, you can form persuasive arguments for meaningful change,” said Beecher
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 13, 2011
Evantage Consulting’s Lead User Experience Consultant Fred Beecher will co-present “Web Analytics and User Experience Fusion” at eMetrics, a Marketing Optimization Summit in San Francisco March 13-18. The breakout session on March 14 is part of the Web Analytics Fundamentals track. Participants will explore how uniting the disciplines of web analytics and user experience (UX) can lead to increased conversion rates and quicker user research phases.
“At times, project teams favor one approach over another, but when you consider data from web analytics along with the behavior analysis of user experience, you can form persuasive arguments for meaningful change,” said Beecher.
Beecher, with co-presenter and web analyst Angie Brown, will demonstrate how combining quantitative web analytics and qualitative UX insights can deliver breakthrough results. “You don’t want analytics and UX research to exist in parallel,” says Beecher. “Analytics may give you the ‘what,’ but User Experience helps you determine the ‘why.’ When these two superpower approaches unite, you can achieve better results faster, with fewer iterations.”
