THANK YOU for this article, Luke. So much this: “With mobile on-boarding it’s not just what we ask people to do it’s also when we ask them to do it.”

Marketing and legal teams I’ve worked with inhouse often don’t know/care that much about ux and are quite happy to crap all over the experience to get their badly worded pop ups in your face.

I’m not making excuses for it, but I’ve worked in companies where rogue teams have their own tools to implement pop ups and you don’t even know about them. One app I worked on had 3 pop ups all controlled by other parts of the business to the app build team 🤦🏻‍♀️

But someone in the company has agreed to them having that power to do it... so no product can work well for users without a bigger view of the service / organisation. Often a need to win an argument for !

Completely agree. It’s missing in most organisations and people are given the tools without any understanding of the impact. Just because you can do something it doesn’t mean you should.

Good question, but before we understand how to fix it, we must understand the problem. What is the ONE thing we need to fix first?

One problem I have seen, is that marketers need to _look_ like their marketing. Efficient online marketing is not necessarily visible to your CEO, but by putting up stuff on the website, you look like you're doing real marketing.

E.g. here's a walk-through of how a one-man media site works with converting readers into subscribers, in a non-intrusive and GDRP-compliant way. It's subtle and hard to understand from the outside:

New tab? You haven’t changed your mind about the app since the last one? You sure?

Also apps can spy on you more than browser pages - and they're bad enough.

The irony that one of the most invasive patterns is the Cookie Consent banner. How can we address this? I feel it'll be akin to our generations Geocities gif backgrounds.

Or even better, a more general consent API so that it can cover the GDPRs and cookie laws of the future.

Not quite the same thing, DNT is a bit blunt and its absence wouldn’t pass as informed consent.
