How Will the Voice Search ‘Revolution’ Impact Web Design?

Voice search is getting a lot of attention right now and it’s no big surprise. The big tech firms are pushing their voice platforms hard and marketers are hyping them up to disrupt the entire industry. Needless to say, voice search is one of the hottest topics in digital technologies right now and this isn’t going to change anytime soon. Despite all this, the rise of voice search isn’t going to have the impact on web design and marketing most are predicting right now. The thing is, voice technology comes with some fundamental limitations that mean its role in the consumer journey (where designer, marketers and the rest of us make our money) will be relatively small. Voice search sucks at selling Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos featured in a recent article here debunking the clickbait notion that homepage design is dead (another BS trend). He’s a smart guy, there’s no question about that.…

Is It Time to Finally Kill Off the Homepage?

As with most things in web design, the homepage has been branded dead or dying many times over the years. They’ve been replaced by magazine-style front page designs, bypassed by landing pages and cut out entirely by social media. Except none of these things killed the homepage. Instead, they joined it as part of a more intricate set of interactions with visitors – each one playing an important role in a more complex web. Now, the latest person calling for the head of homepages is Optimizely’s Cara Harsham, who wrote for the Moz blog last week, claiming her company has “successfully killed THE homepage”. Well folks, looks like it’s time to get those funeral suits pressed again. Personalization killed the homepage The crux of Cara Harsham’s article is that brands need to show users customised content based on their needs and previous interactions, thereby making the generic homepage irrelevant. Her article makes a lot of…

How to start

Quite a few years ago I found myself in a situation where I wanted to start my own business. I was sick of working at the places I was working at, and I wanted to get out on my own. Problem was… I had no idea what that was. I didn’t have any obvious breakout ideas. The experimental ideas I did have seemed impossible to market, as in, I had no idea how to sell anything. The thought occurred to me to try to raise money to build something, but I didn’t even know where to begin.It was an awful unmotivating place to be.My daughter, Addison, turned 3 this week. How on earth have these 3 years gone by?If you know toddlers at all, you can imagine the types of games we’re playing. Lots and lots of pretend. She’s often “the teacher” and I have to be the student. A baby student. Complete…

5 eCommerce Conversion Mistakes Sabotaging Sales

‘Customer struggle’ is real. And unfortunately, it’s only getting worse. EConsultancy ran one study yeeeeeaaaaaaars ago that discovered UK companies were losing “24% of their annual revenue due to poor customer experiences.” That’s so bad that it brings up the 92:1 ratio. The one that says companies focus almost exclusively on NEW, without giving a dollar or pound or loonie to their existing ones. Think that’s gotten better over the past few years? Guess again. The good news is that you can start by fixing these common 5 conversion mistakes that force people to Bounce.    Here’s where you should start. Mistake #1. Overspending on Customer Acquisition You’ve read all the stats. All the previous posts.

Save Your Facebook Ad Budget with these 7 Behavioral Targeting Tricks

Average ads aren’t ideal. No one’s happy with sloppy creative. But on Facebook, they’re not a deal killer. Instead, your targeting is. It’s the beginning and the end. The single biggest determining factor that influences results. Which then includes what you’re going to pay, too. Here are 7 behavioral targeting tricks to use with your Facebook ad campaigns. But first, a quick primer on the types of behavior we’re going to target. A Behavioral Targeting Primer: Explicit vs. Implicit Intent Behavioral targeting is exactly what it sounds like. Campaigns, emails, or ads are triggered based on a customer’s action. That could be on your site, or away from it. On Facebook, or off of it. The trick is the funnel. It’s knowing where someone is and what they’re trying to do so that you can organize, trigger, and target appropriately. Like marketing automation. Someone downloads an eBook. Then you slowly start…

5 Personalization Hacks that Fly Under the Radar

There’s no doubt. No questioning or debate necessary. Every marketer is trying to personalize. It’s seen as THE trend by most. And yet, results vary. Some still struggle. Slapping on trite $FNAME or $COMPANY wherever possible. Then there’s others setting the bar. Setting the tone. The difference is nuanced. You can’t always see it in front of you when you click on an ad or visit a landing page. But you can feel it. It’s there. And it’s undeniable. Some of the most sophisticated marketing today segment customer bases; delivering real-time personalization to each individual – without them even realizing it.

HOW TO: Track Facebook Ads in Google Analytics (March 2017 Update)

A lot of businesses are familiar with Google Analytics as a traffic-tracking tool for their websites, and while that is one of their greatest functions, Google Analytics has a ton of great uses, such as monitoring traffic flow and learning what people are searching for on your site. Another one of these functions is measuring conversions of your social media ad campaigns—including Facebook Ads. While Facebook’s Ads manager (and, of course, AdEspresso) have a ton of great information about ad campaigns, Google Analytics can still give you more information about how people are converting, when, and why—and Google analytics often gives you the bigger picture. While we’ll take a close-up look at Facebook Ads specifically in this post, the knowledge and principle apply to all online ads, including ads run through Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and more. Why You Should Track Facebook Ads in Google Analytics Google Analytics is one of the best…

The Next Smashing Magazine

Congrats to the big team over there assembled to take on this major redesign process. Unlike our redesigns around here that are usually more like realignments with minor dev work and UX sprinkles each iteration, this was a ground-up rebuild for them. They migrated a bunch of different platforms all into one, a static-site based system with all front end APIs. It’s gotta feel good to pull all that stuff into one system. I remember when I used to have four different systems around here (WordPress, Forums (various), eCommerce (various), and some raw PHP stuff) and the good feeling it was to get it all yanked in under one WordPress roof.

How the YMCA uses Drupal to accelerate its mission

The YMCA is a leading nonprofit dedicated to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Today, the YMCA serves more than 58 million people in 130 countries around the world. The YMCA is a loose federation, meaning that each association operates independently to best meet the needs of the local community. In the United States alone, there are 874 associations, each with their own CEO and board of directors. As associations vary in both size and scale, each YMCA is responsible for maintaining their own digital systems and tools at their own expense. In 2016, the YMCA of Greater Twin Cities set out to develop a Drupal distribution, called Open Y. The goal of Open Y was to build a platform to enable all YMCAs to operate as a unified brand through a common technology. Features of the Open Y platform Open Y strives to provide the…
