We did an extensive and thorough study vis-à-vis the correlation between the use of Conference Badge and the geographic location of the customer.

The results are quite astonishing: The 10 happiest countries in the world, (almost 😜) all have Conference Badge users living in them.

You might be wondering what Conference Badge is or what methodology we used to discover this fact. Well, sit tight, you’re about to find out.

Methodology or Method?

In recent years, there has been a tendency to use methodology as a “pretentious substitute for the word method”.[7] Using methodology as a synonym for method or set of methods leads to confusion and misinterpretation and undermines the proper analysis that should go into designing research. — Wikipedia.org

In case you didn’t notice this is not a pretentious article, we’ll therefore stick to using methodology. (Wait… what?)

We used a technique known as making-facts-seem-true-whatever-way-possible or MFSTWWP as it is referred to in the scientific community.

We commenced with the next premise: Our online tool highly reduces frustration on a task known to be dull and boring.

The next logical step was to find proof. And although we have many testimonials of real clients who claim to enjoy our tool, exempli gratia:

These guys are AMAZING! I’ve never worked with a site where the folks behind the scenes were so responsive and so vested in helping you get what you need in such a timely fashion.

-Chris Lap (Yale University)

“For a small not for profit organisation — the design element and simplicity of printed PDFs give us the feeling of something of real quality and value and has helped us attract sponsorship and a USP within our sector.”

-Laura B. (UK)

@SWColumbus:
Huge shout out to @ConfBadge for their amazing software that made our nametags this wknd. We LOVE the design. #swcbus

And even though positive feedback like this, could seem like an overwhelming validation, proof needs to be more than that, it needs to be definitive.

So we ditched our unequivocal criticism and started looking for more transcendent data. In other words, something that would make the title of this post more click-bait like.

Every year the same “Happiest countries in the world” article resurges from the archives of the interweb and every year people seem to consume this story.

Thus we made a concoction of sorts of the happy countries article and our customer base, sorted by location. And voilà: The happiest countries in the world use Conference Badge.

It wasn’t as easy as you might think. The list changes every year, a few countries move up or down a few spots, nothing major, but still, we had to find a year where the top 10 countries had people who had previously used our site.
