  9. Who are “Novice Internet Users”? Why Should You Care

  10. New vs Novice 
 Internet Users Intro

  11. New vs Novice Internet Users With the term “New” Internet

    User, we often associate a hypothetical timeline to these users when they will graduate to experienced people Don’t see the internet as a useful way to advance their key needs and aspirations They don’t get the power of the internet 01. Don’t have the right digital literacy or confidence to realise its benefits They don’t have the right skills or confidence to utilise the power of the internet 02. Users
  12. “Talking is easy, typing is hard.” - Mamta from Jaipur,

    India Mamta just got her first smartphone, and she loves watching videos on YouTube to discover recipes, learn stitching techniques, and listen to her favourite Bollywood ( Indian Movies) songs. Phone Her phone, a Samsung J2 with a cracked screen, was passed down to her by a family member. 01. Voice Interaction Typing is difficult, so she finds it easier to use voice when looking for videos. It doesn't always go as intended though. When using her phone outside in a loud environment and it simply doesn’t understand her. She blames herself when it doesn’t work. 02. https://digitalconfidence.design/opportunities

  62. Case Studies Specific Examples: Designing Apps For India

  63. https://www.triveous.com/product-transformation

  64. Case Study: Onboarding

  65. Why is Onboarding Important? First few seconds critical to long

    term engagement and retention Wasted Acquisition First step to Activation Easy to get wrong REASON Case Study
  66. Agri-Tech App Case Study

  67. https://www.triveous.com/product-transformation

  68. https://www.triveous.com/product-transformation

  69. Problems With This Approach Onboarding Problems Value proposition: An app’s

    purpose isn’t always readily apparent. 
 
 Activation: Primary goal of onboarding 
 Before they achieve action, users are 
 - Trying out the product 
 - Understanding the value proposition, features 
 - Determining if it is a good fit for them 
 
 Activation is the point at which users "get your product and its value proposition" Complexity: Users will abandon the signup flow if it becomes overwhelming. Assistance: Asking for help isn’t always easy. Language: Is this app or its content relevant to me Case Study

  71. Case Study: Home Screen

  72. Agri-Tech App Case Study

  73. https://www.triveous.com/product-transformation

  74. Home Screen Problems Problems in the Home Screen Navigation: 


    - Navigating through hierarchical structures is challenging. 
 - Knowing when and where to tap, swipe, and long press is unclear. Discovery 
 - The contents and scale of the app aren’t immediately apparent. 
 - Users don’t feel confident enough to experiment on their own within an app. Onboarding + Activation Assistance: Asking for help isn’t always easy. Visuals/Interface 
 - An unfamiliar visual aesthetic/interface affects a user’s understanding and willingness to interact. 
 - Imagery and iconography that are either too abstract or too detailed don’t resonate. Case Study

    personas and their needs Show whats possible Navigation 
 - For Everyone
