HOW CONTENT STRATEGY INFLUENCES THE USER EXPERIENCE HOW CONTENT STRATEGY INFLUENCES THE UX VERENA LETZNER & MICHAEL WORMANN
The talk will be held in English

It is almost impossible to build a good user experience on bad content. Both UX designers and content marketers are trying to figure out how to tailor digital media to the needs of their users while achieving a company’s business goal at the same time. Choosing the right content for an audience and the definition of tonality and information quantity are the foundation on which the interaction design can successfully build upon. We will show you how to develop a convincing content user experience using behavioral and survey data, media studies and user testing.
