Family. Decorations. Gifts. And plenty of food — especially meat.
These themes emerged in our PickFu holiday poll that asked 50 people the question, “What are your holiday traditions?” While a few respondents mentioned their change in holiday plans in light of the pandemic, most focused on how they celebrate in “normal” times.
Read on for some of their responses and add your own below. Happy holidays from all of us at PickFu!
It’s hard to dispute the popularity of pizza. For online sellers of pizza-related products, a tougher call is knowing which pizza making tools will appeal most to home cooks. One seller decided to find out in this PickFu poll.
The seller surveyed an audience of Amazon Prime members and home cooks, asking them to rank five pizza making tools in order of which they would be most likely to buy and why.
Sometimes, the slightest change makes the biggest difference in your product photos. That’s what one seller discovered in this PickFu poll. The seller wanted to know whether positioning a product in different ways — in this case, a set of pet lint rollers with refills — would have an effect on customer appeal.
Both images show a row of lint rollers with one refill sitting on top. The one difference? The refill is just to the right in Option A, while in Option B, it’s smack in the center.
One of the trickiest decisions e-commerce sellers must make is choosing the right product image. Lighting, angles, and how a product is styled in the photo can all have an impact on how customers feel about your product and whether they end up buying it or not.
In this PickFu poll, a seller asked 50 consumers of basic body care products which image of a bottle of hair texturizing spray they preferred. The images themselves were similar. The big difference: the bottle in Option A sported a more colorful label.
A self-help book cover should hint at the message tucked within its pages.
A book about relationships might show a couple on the cover, for example. But what about a motivational book about cleaning up life’s messes? How messy should the cover look?
One author took to PickFu to answer this question by testing two covers for a book titled, From Mess to Master: 9 Steps to Overcome Failure, Crush Fear and Defy Your Limits With Inspiring Stories of Successful People.
Some of the most memorable book titles are one word long. Holes. Americanah. Atonement. Beloved. It. But how do you know if your idea for a one-word book title is enough? Test titles of varying lengths on an audience of PickFu respondents, as this author recently did.
The author presented these three titles along with the question, “Which book title is better?”:
If you’ve written a book on a highly specific subject, how do you choose the best cover? Narrowly define your target audience in a PickFu poll.
That’s what one author did for his book about collecting and selling art titled, Own a Fraction, Earn a Fortune: The Complete Guide to Co-Investing in Art and Collectibles.
He selected a target audience of 100 respondents who likely have the means to buy and sell collectible art. These were people between the ages of 25-64 who have a bachelor’s or graduate degree and earn between $61,000-$101,000+.
