It's All About Empathy

I work with brands to create and measure holistically empathetic digital experiences that are user-centered, from the inside out.

Prioritizing Empathy & Building Meaningful Relationships

Empathy for users and individual experiences transcends mediums and technologies. And, relationships are the cornerstone of effective, empathetic growth and loyalty marketing methodologies. I work with brands to create and measure powerful and effective digital experiences and campaigns, tell stories, understand audiences and their goals, cultivate and solidify relationships, and develop experiences with mutually beneficial outcomes that address business goals as well as individual needs and experiences.

Human-Computer Interaction, Psychology, & Persuasion

Empathy is not just an emotional perspective, it’s a science. Human-computer interaction, psychology, heuristics, and persuasive technology research provide a measurable, predictable foundation for my user experience methodologies and projects. I work with brands to develop user personas to segment and express audience needs and desires then leverage existing research on how people experience digital products, design, and technologies to develop strategies that meet business goals and build audience loyalty.

Building Holistically Empathetic and Findable Frameworks

Holistic empathy is not just expressed in the mediums like content, email, social, inbound, and so on, it is built into the frameworks that support these mediums and the information architecture that helps users understand, navigate, and explore brands and digital content. Building empathetic and scalable frameworks with search engine optimized (SEO) backend structures and data allows users to experience a seamless and natural path to their goal or desired outcome.

Quantifying Experiences

Understanding how people use your products requires rigorous and regular data curation and analysis. But, collecting data isn’t enough - you need to know what you’re looking for. I work with brands to identify the right KPIs to express their business goals and users’ experiences, implement testing and analytic tools, lead focus groups and persona development, and measure and analyze the results of analytics, user experience tests, and metrics across mediums and practice lean iteration based on findings.
