Sometimes emotions take precedence over logic. By appealing to this facet of human behavior, you can create products that draw people in and direct them down your preferred path. Chris Nodder continues his Persuasive UX series in this course, where he shows how to use scarcity, time constraints, anchors, and other strategies to harness this emotion and build truly persuasive designs.
Hello. I'm Chris Nodder. Welcome to Persuasive UX, Harnessing Illogical Reactions. In this course, we'll focus on a set of persuasive design patterns that work by appealing to people's emotions. Many persuasive techniques hook into bugs and how our brains are wired, spaces where emotion takes precedence over logic. Just like hackers exploit glitches and so forth to make systems do things they weren't designed for, these behavior patterns can be used persuade people to do things they didn't originally intend to.
In this course, we'll highlight some of these patents and then explain how you can use them to create persuasive products that draw people in and direct them down your preferred path. You'll only understand the value of these persuasive techniques when you see them for yourself, so let's get started.
