“User Experience deals for you!” Yes, that is right. I think we have all been working hard enough over the past year as user experience professionals that it was time to get something in return. With loads of user experience tools, books, and courses on the market these days, where are we supposed to find the money to pay for it all?
User Experience deals for you!
Over the past few weeks I have been in contact with some premium user experience companies to get some reactions to my idea of setting up a Groupon *cough* style feature on my site in which I will only sell user experience related products. The reactions so far have been very positive and I still have many companies to contact.
The deals that I will be focussing on will include heavy discounted coupons for online and offline user experience tools, for books and other educational resources, and I am also looking into obtaining discounts for online user experience courses.
User Experience tools are great but…
If you are like me, someone who has been in trenches within a company trying to convince management to justify an investment in an online research tool like Mouseflow, reference books like The UX Book, then you will know how tedious, time consuming, and unmotivating it can be. In many cases I have gone as far as to purchase user experience tools and books myself just to prove a point. I would put the tool to use, build my business case and ba-boom! Get reimbursed the money that I had spent, and a big smile on my face.
With knowledge and motivation the plethora of user experience tools and books out there can really make a difference in our day to day professional lives. So this is where I want to help (and with full transparency make some money to support this blog’s development). Welcome User Experience Deals 🙂
