These slides are from a Web clinic on category pages in which Flint McGlaughlin, Managing Director, MECLABS, revealed the results of category page design changes that increased clicks and conversions across multiple industries.


How it can help

Category pages are a staple for websites offering multiple products, and yet, they often seem to take a backseat when it comes to testing and optimization.

But if you consider there are essentially two types of visitors whose motivations need to be addressed by those category pages:

  • Objective-motivated (hunters)
  • Experience -motivated (browsers)

Then, that backseat opportunity can quickly become a front-row ticket to a quick win after striking an optimal balance that satisfies the psychological needs of these visitors.

Because ultimately, according to Flint, you are not optimizing just product and category pages; you’re optimizing the customer thought sequence.
