    Good tips :) Do you also have any research to back this up?

    Agree, $1 would be considerable. But considering that he/she does not know what content I like, I doubt if this solution is going to work for the 'getting lost in the world wide web' issue.

    Interesting struggle: I ran into this as well and wrote something about it, but from a completely different perspective. Perhaps it might help with your conversions with your CEO.

    This finding I found particular interesting.

    "One example is the architectural trend we saw during the 1960s. Where we made a lot of living space with a purely functional approach in mind. Where we deemed it more important that something functioned than how it looked. This partly makes sense because of World War II, but the trend never stopped. An image above of the result. Another result is that we had to tear these buildings down after some years because nobody wanted to live in them. Funny, because they had only one function; for people to live in them anymore. And the only thing these buildings where suppose to do: they didn’t. This is a great example of functionalism, where Roger Scruton famously said: “The functionalism did not function”. And why do we want to live in the carefully designed buildings? They simple make us feel better."

    The research is from 2004. So a bit outdated I think. I wonder if it applies to modern everyday webshops, who almost all use a different navigation.
