Selling UX – A Value Driven Perspective

Key Learnings

  • Why it is important to know thy audience to sell to
  • What is the importance of "Value" Selling in User Experience
  • How to redefine your selling goals for impact, where the goal is NOT to sell

Description

From demonstrating ROI and showcasing Case Studies, to talking about the process and demo-ing prototypes, nothing much has changed; it is still as difficult to sell User Experience as it was 20 years ago. Or is it?

Whether you are an agency selling to an external client, or an in-house designer selling to internal stakeholders, “selling” is probably the most important and intrinsic activity you end up having to do, in each and every aspect of the trade of UX, sometimes without even noticing you are doing it.

There is that rush of validation you get, when it sells!  And the disappointment of being misunderstood, when it doesn’t.
Yet, all of us develop our “selling” trade-secrets over time. Some sell with confidence and data, while others sell with charm and friendly
persuasion.

In this talk, I uncover my learnings and absolutely exclusive secrets of selling User Experience. Miss this talk and you shall never know, but always wonder!!
