Are you a risk-taker, or do you usually stay away from, say, the edges of cliffs? Do you consider yourself a bold person, someone who radiates confidence? And finally, do you have to live dangerously in order to be bold?
One author set out to answer these questions when she created a PickFu poll to choose a cover for her book Live a Bold Life: Your 30 Day Mission to a Fearless Future.
Option A’s mustard-yellow cover doesn’t feature any danger-evoking images, but the word bold stands out from the rest of the title. In stark contrast, Option B features an illustration of a person standing at the edge of a cliff.
Choosing a name for your new mobile game is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. Like all business names, a good app name should be easy to say, memorable, and reflective of the game you are creating. You want to hint towards what your game is without being too obvious. Most importantly, the name of the game must be appealing enough to convince users to download it. So how to pick the perfect app name? Take a look at what this developer did.
The mobile game company in this PickFu poll wanted to know, based solely on the app name, which option respondents would more likely to download. The developer polled 50 users, all of whom self-identified as mobile gamers.
Option A was Idle Realm, while Option B was Idle Domain. Can you guess which mobile game name was more popular with the gamers in this poll?
Most business owners are interested in books about marketing. But what if you wrote a book about account-based marketing (ABM) — a strategy in which the standard funnel gets flipped on its head — and wanted it to catch a reader’s attention? You’d need to demonstrate the upside-down nature of ABM through creative book cover design ideas.
One pair of authors tested two different cover designs for their book, ABM is B2B. Why Traditional Marketing is Broken and How to Fix It in a recent PickFu poll.
Option A’s bright yellow cover features a broken heart behind the subtitle. Option B features a soft blue cover with an egg cracked in the middle of it.
The importance of your brand logo can’t be overstated. Every time someone comes across your brand, they’ll see your logo. As part of a successful brand image, your logo should leave a lasting impression with customers. A subtle change can take immediately improve logo design, taking it from ‘meh’ to instantly recognizable.
The creators of Lead My Dog have run a PickFu poll to split test two versions of their logo. At first glance, the logos seem nearly identical. However, there are a couple small differences between each logo – and those small differences had a big impact on the respondents!
If you write an e-book, you might assume you can get away with spending less time on your book cover than someone who’s publishing a physical book.
But e-book covers matter just as much as physical book covers. When potential customers browse an online selection, the cover is the first thing they see. For some books, covers are especially important because they reflect what the book is selling.
Take this recent PickFu poll, run by the author of a DIY interior design e-book aimed at women. The pollster created a ranked poll on PickFu to find out which of their covers attracted the audience best.
Option A features a book cover with a tidy text box against a clean, modern-looking room. You can’t see a whole lot of the home because the focus is on the tables, but the title and subtitle look professional.
Option B removes the box and shifts the title upward, helping potential readers to see more of the room.
Option C introduces new font colors and shifts a banner of text over the fireplace.
There are a lot of challenges that an entrepreneur needs to tackle when launching a new company: deciding what you’re going to sell, planning a marketing strategy, researching the right e-commerce platform. But before you can do almost anything else with your company, you’ll need to choose the right brand name. In a cluttered industry like the alcohol accessory sector, beer name ideas can be the key to differentiating yourself from your competition.
In this PickFu poll, a business owner was keen to discover the most appealing name for their beer ice pack brand.
The poll offered three options: Koolaroo, Refreeze, and Sweet Chill. Can you guess which one won?
When someone mentions cyber hackers, you usually think, ugh! Those people who can breach my computer’s privacy and steal my information and money? I stay away from them.
But what if you needed people to see the other side of cyber hackers, and you decided to write a book about it? What type of title would convince readers to look past their negative assumptions and get them to pick up your book?
Naming your business is an exciting part of building your new brand. Start by brainstorming and come up with as many ideas as you can. Once you’ve exhausted your ideas, you can start to narrow down it down to your favorites. When it starts getting challenging to decide on your own, test a couple of business names with a PickFu poll to see which is more popular with an audience of people.
That’s exactly what the business owner in this PickFu poll did. The pollster is building an integrated medicine clinic in the town of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and wants to know which business name would be more appealing.
Option A was Restoration Healthcare and Option B was Coeur d’Health. Option B, of course, was a play on words based on the town Coeur d’Alene.
Depending on whom you ask, February 14 is either a day to celebrate the best of human relationships or a cynical marketing ploy. Regardless of which side you take, love is uplifting, romantic, hilarious, and terrifying, often at the same time.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, PickFu gathered a panel of 200 married people to share their proposal stories and rate them on a scale of 1 (least romantic) to 5 (most romantic). Their stories will make you cheer, laugh, and choke up — much like love itself.
