Jakob Nielsen Interview
It always impresses me when I come across a site that is so well written I am enticed to keep digging further to find more information. The longer I stay on a site, the more likely I am to make a purchase.
I have often wondered what specific techniques make this magic happen. Although design plays a part, I knew there must be more to it. There are some very plain sites I spend hours exploring. A perfect example is Jakob Nielsen’s website on usability.
A few years back, I finally realized a technique: he always adds links to related information at the end of each article. It is almost as if he is teasing me to find out more. I find it dragging me deeper and deeper into his site. Although it may be considered an excellent technique for usability, it is also an absolutely ingenious marketing approach.
I WILL DEFINITELY SEE YOU AT THE TOP!
