In this episode of “The Dirt” I sit down with our resident illustrator, Mark Grambau for a civilized discussion about how revenue is driving businesses Web and how we can balance that with our desire to create a top-line user experience. We talk about all the current revenue models available online and how they relate to user experience design. Topics include: ads, freemium, sposoships, partnership, micropayments, and others.
Revenue and UX has always danced a thin line; Mark & I discuss where exactly that line is, and how we can blur it so the benefit falls squarely on the user.
