Which One Won? Connecting Your Book Cover With Emotions

When designing a book cover, it’s important to consider the emotions that you want your audience to feel. This often determines whether the person buys the book.

In other words, people buy with their emotions.

We saw this connection between emotion and book design in a recent PickFu poll.

Two authors recently tested two different covers for a book targeted at cancer patients. The authors targeted a female audience and asked which cover they preferred. … Continue reading

Which One Won? Getting Dynamic With eCommerce Photos

SPLASH!

I’m sure you’ve been there — that gut-wrenching moment when your phone fell from your hands and into water.

You try the rescue tactics: blowing on it. Sticking it in a bowl of dry rice. Then you wait and hope that your phone somehow survives.

Which One Won? Getting Risky With Logo Design

The logo is one of the staples of your business. It establishes your brand. It distinguishes your company from others. Therefore, it’s important to make sure that you have tested your logo design on a target audience. It might surprise you to find that one of your creative design choices doesn’t fly with your audience at all.

A company recently experienced this when testing its logo using a PickFu poll. It asked the test panel, “Which logo is more appealing?”

Both logos are all black. Option A shows the words “SAVAGE GENERAL” with a sprocket wheel behind it.

Which One Won? Standing Out on Amazon

A common question polled on PickFu is which featured photo would work better on Amazon. It’s an important question for vendors, especially considering there are over310 million Amazon customers. And given that Amazon sells over12 million products, a company needs to stand out.

The responses from one recentPickFu poll provide fantastic insight into what makes a potential customer click on an item to buy.

Scratch Magic Notes, a creative stencil product, asked 50 respondents, “Which Amazon main photo works better?”

Option A featured a box of the product with the stencils laid out and a sample drawing from the stencils.

Which One Won? Make Your Ads Stand Out

When marketing a product, it’s important that potential customers have a clear understanding of what the product does. The benefits need to stand out clearly in the ad. But what is the right amount of information to provide? 

A recent PickFu poll for a workout supplement can help us answer that question. The company Nutritive Vitality asked the test panel to indicate which ad they would click on first.

Option A features a man with defined muscles leaning over to pick up a barbell. The headline “Train More Gain More” is in large, bold text, followed by a detailed description of what the customer could get from the product.

Which One Won? Hungry Tummies and Sexy Honeys

T-shirt company Honey Coast donates a meal to someone in need for each t-shirt or accessory sold. Honey Coast conducted a test on PickFu of two potential Instagram bios. The test was conducted on a respondent pool of 100 women between the ages of 18-34.

Honey Coast followed the testing best practice of keeping the pages similar in order to only test one thing at a time. The two options displayed the same set of photos and the same tagline, “For honeys who love adventure, positive vibes, and slaying hunger.” However, Option A added a hashtag “#GivingNeverLookedSoSexy” to the tagline, while Option B added a slogan, “Feel sexy. Fill a tummy.”
