Beware of the Power of Brand: How a powerful brand can obscure the (urgent) need for optimization

We’ve all been there before. You go online to order something from a well-known brand but can’t figure out how to navigate the site. You push through, even though you want to click away, because you know they have a great product and you can’t get it anywhere else. Your motivation to buy is already high.

People who already know the value of a particular brand often remain loyal customers to that brand, even though they may have to suffer through a poor user experience.

But there are those who are not so motivated. They may not be as familiar with the brand and consequently, not so forgiving. Too much friction or anxiety-causing elements can drive away many potential customers.  And big brands need to be aware of this.

Beware of those situations where the power of the brand obscures the quality (or lack thereof) in your messaging.
