Data-Driven Design and Digital Marketing Strategy

UAD4 Usability, Accessibility and Design

Location: 101B, Wisconsin Center

MONDAY, 11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Thanks to software like Google Analytics, New Relic, Crazy Egg, and others, data about your digital marketing efforts is available in excess. How can you display the information in a way that gives you leverage to act on the relevant data points? How do we use this data to make better design and strategic marketing decisions down the road? In this session we'll discuss successful case studies from the University of Notre Dame on how to take SEO, usability, and goal conversion data and make design decisions, set up A/B experiments, and improve search results to maximize the effectiveness of websites and applications.
