Things I found on the web this week (31st May)
This week: I’ve been a bit obsessed with user onboarding and microcopy, also learning about UX from museums and how JustGiving went from idea to £100m in five years.
Here are the things I found interesting on the web this week.
// ONBOARDING THINGS
“It doesn’t matter if you’ve created a valuable product experience and a beautiful visual flow to help users get started. If you fill that flow with poor copywriting, your new users will…never come back.”
“It’s not what happens on the screen that counts; it’s what happens in the person.” A great blog about all things onboarding.
Here’s one example of how to do onboarding really well.
“About 79% of users abandon an app after the first use. One of the biggest reasons of all: a poor onboarding experience.”
“All too often, tech companies lack the writing staff to get copy written for every single interface… Here’s a few tips to help you make the most of your user interface copy.”
// UX DESIGN THINGS
What can Museum Exhibit Design Teach us about UX Design?
“Beverly Serrell … sheds some light on the challenges of designing a user experience in three dimensions.”
// STARTUP THINGS
“JustGiving’s goal is to grow the world of giving, enabling more money to be raised for good causes through the use of technology.”
Compiled with ❤️ in Qatar
Every week I read stuff on the web that I think would help Qatar-based tech startups design and build brilliant products. I save up all the interesting things and publish them here, and send them out via tinyletter.com/jennyellenbrown
