This week, we’ll examine the importance of product design, illustrated by this PickFu poll. An e-commerce seller split-tested patterns for reusable beeswax food wraps.

Which One Won? How to write a medical book title

It’s important to know how to write a medical book title that calls attention to itself. Titles are the first thing potential readers notice when they browse books. With nonfiction books especially, titles play a crucial role in marketing: unlike with fictional novels, readers want to know exactly what they’re getting.

One medical author created a PickFu poll to test potential titles for a nonfiction book about handling Alzheimer’s. The book aims to appeal to caregivers.

Option A is Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias: Coping and Caring. A BETTER Approach For The Caregiver. Option B is Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias. A Better Approach to Coping and Caring.

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.

Which One Won? A modern logo for a nightclub

Certain businesses and industries naturally have a particular vibe, such as a floral shop being pretty or the construction industry being rugged. When creating logos and branding for your business, it’s important to match the feel customers expect. In this PickFu poll, the entrepreneurs behind a nightclub tested out two designs for a modern logo. Both options have the same color palette and feature the business name Levels Nightclub

However, each modern logo design features different fonts and spacing. Option A uses a rounded, bubbly font for the word Levels, while Option B uses a sharper, edgier font. These seemingly small differences give each logo a different look.

Which One Won? Testing memoir titles

The best memoirs aren’t vague self-help style books—they’re pieces of literature that take the reader into the memoirist’s unique experience. Memoir titles should reflect that unique experience.

One author created a PickFu poll that asked respondents which title would compel them to purchase the book. The two options had the same memoir title (Dream Take Flight) but a different subtitle.

Option A reads, “Dream Take Flight: One Woman’s Odyssey in a Homebuilt Airplane.”
Option B reads, “Dream Take Flight: One Woman’s Unconventional Journey to Self-Empowerment.”

Which One Won? Product packaging that sells

When you put in the effort and money to create nice product packaging, why not show it off in your main e-commerce image?

This week, we’ll look at how an item in a classy, high-quality box can attract buyers much better than the item on its own. In a recent PickFu poll, an Amazon seller conducted a split test on 50 members of the general population, asking them to choose between two product photos for a leather keychain.

Option A shows the keychain on a wood backdrop. Option B shows the keychain inside a gift box, resting on the same backdrop.
