Microcopy That Sells Cars | Interview with Don Seidenberg of CarNext.com

If way back in 1999, you told my father that he could replace his old Subaru at the click of a button without even test driving it, he would have never believed it! Now, twenty years later, even though he probably wouldn’t buy a car online, he wouldn’t be surprised at all to learn that several companies are successfully selling them online. CarNext.com is one of those companies. And there’s no doubt about it that their slick user experience contributes greatly to their high conversion rate with selling used cars. Recently, I had the chance to speak with Don Seidenberg, the first UX writer at CarNext.com. We talked about the process of writing copy that sells cars online. Don’t miss it

Hacking my way through the world of UX Writing | Greta van der Merwe of Careem

Greta van der Merwe’s UX writing career has skyrocketed, going from an ad agency to senior UX writer a unicorn company recently acquired by Uber. I first met Greta when she was among the original members of our Facebook group, participating in discussions and sharing her talents with others. In fact, after she participated in the first class of our UX writing course (we’re about to open the fourth), we were so impressed that we took Greta on as a student mentor in future classes. She has a great post about how no one in her organization seems to understand how UX writing should work. It’s been a true honor watching her career progress and I was delighted to speak with her recently about the following topics: How she went from copywriter to Senior UX writer in such a short period of time How to collaborate with designers as a senior UX writer The processes and tools she uses How she stays up to date with the UX Writing industry Overcoming the challenges of collaboration, tools, and localization Words of wisdom from one of the best UX writers I know.

Is Voice Interface the Future of UX Writing?

You take the carton from the refrigerator door and give it a shake. “Empty,” you think to yourself. No problem. “Hey Google,” you exclaim, activating your Google Home device. “Ask Colruyt to add milk to the list.” But instead of confirming the addition, your home device informs you that “Milk has already been added to your grocery list. Would you like to add an additional carton?” You know the culprit—your heavy milk-drinking girlfriend Sharon. You’re so impressed by this digital gesture that you almost forget about Sharon putting the empty carton back in the fridge for the 100th time. Today, most of us understand that this isn’t some distant sci-fi fantasy. In fact, for customers of one of Belgium’s largest supermarket chains, Colruyt, it’s already a reality. Recently, I spoke with Yves Van Kerkhove of the Colruyt Group. Yves was a student in our first UX writing course and has been working on a game-changing project—a voice interface app for Colruyt’s supermarket shoppers. Yves relied upon his 15 years of copywriting experience plus massive amounts of testing to bring it to fruition. The result is a full-fledged voice interface assistant for online shopping. This episode is for you if you are curious about: The future of writers in tech Working in a product team without a UI designer Writing a voice interface app Testing for voice interfaces Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

The evolution of UX Writing with Jared Spool
