Did you know that website visitors decide whether they like it in about 50 milliseconds? You don’t have much time to make a good impression.

Visual first impressions -can make the difference between losing prospects forever, or turning them into lifetime customers.

But how do you quantify aesthetic preferences?

This year at Unbounce, we wanted to find out. We did a brand audit. We’re a data-driven company, so we decided to run exercises with external users to prove the value of a visual refresh for our audience.

Our results? Completely eye-opening. Based on the feedback we received, we got the…


Running a marathon is a long-term challenge that needs a sense of purpose, a significant commitment and a lot of hard work.

In the International Team at Unbounce we thought it would be interesting to turn this physical challenge into a knowledge-based one and create a campaign to increase the number of Brazilian agencies in our database.

What would it take to make our audience feel committed to becoming “marketing athletes?” And how could we encourage them to engage and participate throughout our entire digital campaign?

Designers embedded in Marketing teams can sometimes find themselves in awkward positions where they…


As marketers, you’re continually looking for new ways to get the attention of your target audience with specialized content they’ll find useful.
