    a limited time to respond increases likelihood of participation
  32. How do I put it all in practice? 32

  33. • Print screenshots of the different steps of a journey

    • Define persuasion goals on each page • Brainstorm persuasion technique ideas • Evaluate your ideas with your team • Frame ideas as hypotheses • Evaluate your hypotheses through user validation When you’re back in the office …
  34. Example hypotheses 34 Action Interest Desire Click through will be

    higher if the CTA is placed on a white background, Contrast The hero image will grab more attention if if contains people enjoying the event, Visual Imagery Social Proof Engagement will be higher if we show testimonials form last year’s event Delighters Engagement will be higher if we show quality racing video highlights Scarcity Risk Aversion Click through rate will be higher if we show when there are only 10 tickets left Click through will be higher if we advertise that tickets can be refunded at a later date Limited Duration Limited Choice Click through rate will be higher if we only show 3 ticket options Click through will be higher if we show a timer until advanced tickets are no longer on sale
  35. Influencing human behaviour is never that simple… • Respect your

    customers & stay ethical! • Ensure you have a baseline understanding of different customers motivations • Accept that you’ll need to iterate - there are no silver bullets 35 Follow our blog & newsletter with regular UX thoughts,
