Best of the Week: Issue 15

Everything old is new again

The concept of “user experience” is practically boilerplate in the marketing world, but its most recent incarnation in the digital age means a whole new UX mold is needed. Savvy entrepreneurs now need to know what internet surfers look for – and what catches their eye – when they’re exploring the web for products and services. This handy list of dos and don’ts helps you maximize the UX quotient in your website.

If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em

Thankfully, however, there is a clear path to mobile pay adoption.

You can have your Cake and eat it too

The ever popular call, “Check please!” may soon go extinct if Cake, an ambitious mobile payment app, takes off. And chances of that happening are looking good because it’s nearly over funded on Crowdcube.  As one of the latest in the wave of new payment apps, Cake is an application that lets mobile users settle a restaurant bill with a few swipes of their thumb. They can even divvy up a bar tab straight through the app.

Until next week, keep practicing that John Wayne drawl, because that never gets old…
