Victor Yocco, Research Director at EY-Intuitive, joins the Content Pros Podcast to discuss how user-experience can make or break your brand’s success.
Setting a Pretty Tone
Website building platforms that make creating your brand’s online presence a straightforward process have become fairly commonplace. Their accessibility makes it tempting to cut corners on the website design budget but when 38% of visitors stop engaging if the content or layout is unattractive, it’s clear that this is an area worthy of investment.
But how to invest wisely? For Victor, it’s about approaching your website’s foundation from the user’s point of view. His experience of walking a mile in a customer’s shoes combined with advanced education in customer research has helped him identify three key values and their unique way to drive conversions. He combines this knowledge with some social math to help businesses rethink their online presence.
From research to wording, Victor can transform a company’s website from an underperforming landing page to a content rich, customer engaging sales tool.

A self-confessed nerd since birth, Victor has always been into writing. As a kid he wanted to be a journalist or an author; basically anything where he got to write all the time.
