Chapter 1 Blog Post

This chapter was very interesting to me because I never thought that a web page had too much thought behind it like Etsy did. Now I know that every website aims to please all of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs so it will resonate with all of the visitors of the site.

I completely agree that visitors of the site will understand the sites shortcomings. It’s hard to believe that the sites visitors will be as forgiving as we are but we have to remember that the other visitors are humans just like us. I think that it definitely makes your site more memorable which creates brand loyalty.

The only thing I disagree with is that these shortcomings will create a safety net. I think that people will be loyal to the brand but with that being said, too many shortcomings can turn your audience off. I think that you can be human, but eventually have to realize at one point that you have to step up and create more of a page that resonates with forgiving audiences and ones who are criticizing.
