An Interview with Sean Work, VP of Inbound, Crazy Egg
The Home page for the Crazy Egg web site has only two sentences on it:
What's making your visitors leave?
Find out by seeing how users click and scroll through your website
But that really sums up what the software does. It visually shows you where visitors are clicking, scrolling, and leaving your web site. This allows you to change and optimize the design of your web site in order to better convert your visitors for whatever goals you are aiming for.
I chatted with Sean Work of Crazy Egg about the importance of visitor and conversion optimization, the current state of awareness of existing tools, and the effect of mobile devices on user interactions
An Interview with Colin Earl, CEO and Founder, Agiloft
Agiloft was born out of the frustration of its founder with the time it took to get changes made to enterprise software. What started as a framework that allowed for changes to be made quickly – but still required coding - evolved into a platform that allowed for “no-code” application development before that was even a recognized term and concept.
Colin Earl discusses the benefits of such an approach as well as to why he never wanted to accept venture capital (VC) investments for his company. He also shares some interesting methods that he uses to incentivize employees and align their values with the company’s values.
An Interview with Marc Zablatsky, Vice President & General Manager, Sitecues
Many people may think that the only reason to add accessibility support and features to a web site is because there are regulations that require it and that not doing so could result in serious penalties. While that may be one good reason to add accessibility features to your web site, such support also makes good business sense, allowing businesses to help seniors and baby boomers with age-related loss of vision, cognition, and dexterity. Marc Zablatsky explains why that is so and how web accessibility is going to evolve in the future.
