NoVA UX April Meetup – Panel Discussion: eCommerce UX

Our topic

Ever wondered how UX theory and practice get applied in an e-commerce setting? I'll be moderating a panel of team members from local retailers ThinkGeek and CustomInk to answer questions and tell us how they craft awesome customer experiences for their respective businesses. Topics will include tough retail design problems, cross-channel UX and marketing, research and testing, and much more. As always, there will be lots of Q&A, so bring your questions.


But wait, that's not all! TM

ThinkGeek and CustomInk will be bringing along some fun things for us to give away to several lucky attendees...

    Top notch speakers and discussion, as always, thanks; most people do not successfully monetize websites, so these guys did everyone a great favor discussing how to do it.
