Insights regarding of micro-businesses marketing needs.

1.

Learning marketing adequately requires a lot of time and effort

2.

Most small businesses cannot afford a long-term marketer

3.

The smartphone is the main tool for a small business owner

"I used to advertise the business online, but the time it required of me was too great and did not pay off."

4a.

Everybody has a Facebook business page

4b.

Creating a Facebook business page within the system is an unnecessary feature for the MVP stage, contrary to entrepreneurial requirements.

Personas - Meet Dana & Asa

User journey

We found two main pain points (        ) that arise from the process:

  • Profile set up-  Long and tedious step and can make the user nervous, impatient, and hesitant.

  • Payment- Don't we all think twice before reaching our wallet?

Next, we concentrated on the Profile set-up stage, trying to neutralize any negative emotions that arise in the user.

Usability testing

Wizard or chatbot, which will be better for The Ad Wiz users?

We compared the two methods using three indicators: benefit, satisfaction, and efficiency as our experiment participants answered 10 questions regarding the nature of their business and ideal customer.

Introduction

Chatbot

An intriguing method that shows potential for answering closed questions in a chat format.

Wizard

Classic and simple- Each closed question got its own screen. The 'next' button becomes the user's best friend. 

Satisfaction

(35%)

Some loved it, some hated it and it's human-like (but not quite) behavior.      A chatbot is clearly not everyone's cup of tea. 

Well, wizards are not that thrilling, that's true, but all the users showed great satisfaction from its simplicity and visual elegance. 

Benefit

(20%)

The questions on both platforms were identical and the users were able to complete the questionnaire adequately. 

Efficiency

(45%)

Here the chatbot clearly failed to impress. Every time a user gets a question wrong and has to go back, the bot presents the previous question again on the bottom of the screen. This results in a bad sense of orientation as the two questions repeat twice.

In this division, the wizard won big. Not only did the users complete the step faster, but it was also clear that they were performing it with less mental effort.

 

The Takeaway

  • Wizard method is better for our users 

  • Questions about the ideal customer gave small business owners the confidence to continue forward. thus, we reordered the questions in the "Profile set-up".

Business Page synce

To facilitate the information entry stage, the system will import data, photos, and videos from the business's Facebook page. All that's left for the user is to confirm the details.

Wizard Questionnaire

In order to create a clear and uniform design throughout the entire process, each question gets its own page.

Ideal Customer

During usability testing we found this set of questions to be encouraging and motivating to the user. For this reason, we decided to place it in the middle of the process.

Profile set up

Well Done!

Each set of questions ends with a motivational screen, providing positive feedback and information about the next step.

Campaign Goals

The user may choose between setting the campaign goal themselves (advanced) or letting The Ad Wiz "do its magic" (recommended)

Campaign Preview

Ads are created automatically based on information entered by the user and visual materials found on the user's Facebook page.

This step is used to indicate some of the benefits of the system, addressing some of their potential pain points.

Managing platform

Campaigns Screen

Displays data and insights on active campaigns in a clear and concise manner. Tapping a campaign tab allows the user to see more information and make changes.

Once a new campaign has undergone automatic optimization, a message will appear stating it.

Small Steps

Located on The home screen, the "Tips & Tasks" section provides real-time feedback on posts and images, therefore forming a consistent relationship with the user.

 

The "Tips & Tasks" can also be seen in a "Schedule" view.
