  • Behavioral Science & Analysis: How To Turn Psychology Into Sales July 20, 2017 5:01 pm
    If you’ve ever heard me speak at a conference, you know I like to wear a white lab coat. It’s not a gimmick, and I certainly don’t wear it because of its slimming properties. No, I wear it because of science. There is an area of research called Enclothed Cognition. It is the study of the systematic influence that clothes have on the wearer and those around him. Scientists have studied the lab coat. When someone puts on a lab coat, they score higher on cognitive tests. So, when I put on a lab coat, I will actually make fewer errors than if I was wearing my street clothes. When I’m wearing a lab coat, I think I’m smarter than I really am. Scientists have also studied the affect of uniforms and authority. When I wear the lab coat, what I say will carry more weight with you. Not only do I think I’m smarter than I am, you will think I’m smarter than I really am. In other words, I am gaining an unfair advantage based on behavioral science. Today, I’m going to who you how your business can gain an unfair advantage in the marketplace using behavioral science.

  • I Answered 99 Stack Overflow Questions and Now 2 Million Developers Know About My Product July 21, 2017 12:27 pm
    "Part of the job of a developer isn’t just building new software, it’s finding new and better ways to build that software. As a result, developers spend a good chunk of time simply looking stuff up. Stack Overflow’s Q&A format is particularly useful because you can surface highly specific answers to the urgent questions that are holding up your project. I built an API in response to a question that someone asked on Stack Overflow, and months later, I noticed that I was getting millions of requests a day. I’ve now quit my job and built my business around that API, and, along the way, found one of the most effective ways to market to developers: answer their burning questions."
