E.g all consumer web sites, ecommerce, etc. Usability alone does not work. Users need to be guided to meet the objective of site. 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1a 2a

Usability alone does not work. Users need to be guided to meet the objective of site.

Business Objectives For a site to meet its strategic objectives, it has to orient and direct its target audience through the process of conversion, whether that conversion is buying a product, subscribing to a newsletter, getting register, or applying for jobs, contacting other users, expanding network, sending an enquiry for property .

Persuasive architecture Things go wrong when information architects look at content solely as a structure that has to be organized into vertical hierarchies Think in terms of iterative decision-making processes Web pages must grab the user's attention and instill an interest to move forward while making certain that the entire experience is satisfying The way people make buying decisions can be highly complex and irrational. Factors such as trust, comfort, confidence, and ease of the process are often more important to the customer than price and hard facts.

Seductive Design "The seducible moment can happen only when users have completed at least part of their original quest. It's difficult to lure users away until they've reached this (self-defined) point; before that, they will simply ignore distractions.“ When users go looking for information, they have a goal. A successful seduction depends on both the context and the strength of the goal: users won’t be deterred until they’ve accomplished some or all of their goal.

So What ? Is Customer Centered Design Bad ? Does it imply that if we Design for business objectives and merchandising then we are no longer the users’ advocates and start acting like aggressive and manipulating sales people?

Is Customer Centered Design Bad ?

strategy Persuasion architecture is a particular way of communicating your prospective users to take the action you want them to take & they take it because they understands that action is in their best interest. Ultimately, buyers who realize afterward that they’ve been manipulated won’t buy again
