"When used separately there is a danger that you will either have a large study with too many detailed and non-significant conclusions (when you focus on qualitative) or you will end up having very general conclusions without sufficient context (when you lean towards quantitative)." ‪#‎UX‬ ‪#‎UserExperience‬
Informed UX decisions require both quantitative and qualitative data. This is because quantitative gives you the what while qualitative gives you the why

There’s a very real human side to every business – whether it’s online or offline – that decides whether the business will bloom or go bust." ‪#‎CRO‬ ‪#‎ConversionRateOptimization‬ ‪#‎Conversion‬
Five techniques that add a human and personal element to any website. This delights current customers while improving user experience and conversion rate

"Jargon need not be a boundary to usability. Used in the correct way, it can actually enhance it. If you are writing about a highly-specialised topic or something that only people who understand the jargon would use, it can help cohesion and speed of understanding, allowing you to provide a highly informative piece of content. If, however, you’re writing for a generic audience with a general level of understanding, perhaps lay off the shop talk." ‪#‎Usability‬ ‪#‎UX‬ ‪#‎UserExperience‬ ‪#‎Jargon‬
Jargon can actually enhance usability. It all depends on whether the targeted readership is familiar with the technical terminology being used.

"We became aware that our product signup page had a problem when we discovered that some people were signing up but never actually seeing the product interface itself. This meant that somewhere between giving us their email address and being led into the interface for the first time, they were giving up or getting stuck and never coming back....." ‪#‎CRO‬ ‪#‎Conversion‬ ‪#‎UX‬
