Which One Won? Unique business name ideas

The right business name sets the tone for your success. If you choose a catchy name, you’ll immediately attract the attention of potential customers and become a memorable brand. Go with a lackluster name and it will have the opposite effect. Your business will go unnoticed and struggle to gain momentum. But how will you know if your unique business name ideas resonate with customers? 

In this PickFu poll, an entrepreneur asked for feedback on two different names for an online store. Once it opens, the store will sell items made from alpaca wool including socks, sweaters, and blankets. 

Option A: Alpaca Approved
Option B: Alpaca Outpost

Which One Won?: How e-commerce photo editing affects results

In this week’s “Which One Won?”, we’ll look at an example of how a snazzy design choice in e-commerce photo editing can capture shoppers’ attention.

In this poll, an e-commerce seller conducted a split test on 50 people, presenting them with dueling product images of a musical egg toy set. The two options played around with the layout and the look of the components.

In Option A, the eggs are displayed in a circle, making them resemble flower petals.

In Option B, the eggs rest naturally in the white space.

Both feature a hand holding an egg, but each is in a different position. The two also have different-looking symbols conveying that there are six eggs in a set.

Which One Won? Designing a book cover about postpartum depression

Designing a book cover about a subject like postpartum depression can be tricky. You want to convey the seriousness of the disorder while also inviting readers to open the book.

One author used PickFu to create a round-robin tournament with three head-to-head matches to choose the perfect cover for her book about coping with postpartum depression. She tested exclusively from a female audience.

Option A’s cover is in black and white with an image of a woman in the middle. But instead of the woman’s upper body and head, you see a cloud of gray.

Option B’s cover, a soft purple, takes a slightly lighter approach: it features an upside-down pacifier in the center.

Option C resembles the cover of a young adult novel with large font reminiscent of handwriting.
