Marli Mesibov: Meeting at the Intersection of Content Strategy and UX Design



Let’s talk about content strategy. Let’s talk about UX design. Let’s talk about real-world experiences. As a content strategist and UX strategist, I work with designers and writers, user researchers and project managers, content managers and content creators. We can all do our work independently of one another, but sometimes we get the opportunity – and the challenge – of working together. In this talk we’ll look at six scenarios where UX and content strategy combine to make our work better and our lives easier.

Jared Spool: User Interface Design Metrics

JaredSpoolThursday, January 15, 2014, 6:30 PM to 9 PMConstant Contact: 1601 Trapelo Road, Waltham, MA
BostonCHI is hosting this event in concert with IEEE Boston Computer Society and GBC/ACM.


The world of metrics and analytics has always been at odds with how designers work. Design is a process where we finely tune our gut intuition to create a great user experience. Yet, sometimes, the measures we take indicate a different outcome. Which do we believe? Our gut or what the computers are collecting?
In this presentation, Jared will explore the world of measures, metrics, and KPIs. He’ll share the techniques behind Amazon and Netflix’s success. He’ll show how some practices, like the growth hacking approach to increasing Monthly Average Users (MAUs) have hurt the online experience of Instagram and LinkedIn. Plus, you’ll see some alternatives to satisfaction and net promoter score that give insight into the design process and can help designers better tune their gut intuition.

Jared will explore:

  • What do easily-collected analytics like bounce rate and time-on-page actually tells us about our users experiences?
  • How do we construct true Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that can predict the future patterns of users?
  • Why advanced techniques, like a money-left-on-the-table analysis and the CE11, show us how much more powerful metrics can be in design?
