Hi Gang!

Check it out: Yesterday I had a friendly debate with a candidate regarding UX. The candidate was adamant that “state of the art” UX tools were absolutely necessary in today’s dog-eat-dog ecommerce world. It sounded reasonable, but I wasn’t so sure. So I asked her …

“Why do attractive people marry unattractive people?”

“Alcohol.” she said.

“Nope,” I replied. “It’s because there is some PROFOUND emotional and intellectual connection between those people that renders the physical attributes of the ugly person less important to the good looking person than society would think.”

Here’s why I bring this up: I interview a TON of candidates and clients who are obsessed with having a beautiful website. Certainly, I don’t poo-poo that desire.

BUT: It’s worth noting that I own >$15,000 worth of needless drum crap, bought mostly on impulse from MaxwellDrums.com (a usability trainwreck any way you slice it). Here’s a photo of my home office.

How exactly did that happen? My wife often wonders.

Well, it’s because of the emotional connection that I have to the team at Maxwell. Their PRODUCT is unique … I LIKE them … and I TRUST them. They UNDERSTAND me … and I feel BETTER about MYSELF (as a drummer) because of my relationship with them.

I’m not knocking great digital UX! I’m just highlighting the tradeoff between “high touch” and “high volume” and how digital UX can suffer as long as the total combined offline + digital CX is excellent.

Now then, here are today’s Ecommerce Jobs of the Week (with my commentary):
