Designing an MVP — From Wireframe to Mockup (Sans Sugar Part 2)

iphone x mockup ux ui design hong kong

History is made of accidents and the history of technology is no exception. Many beloved services and digital products began as side projects that became moonshots and spin-offs. Fog Creek spun off Trello while Basecamp replaced its parent company, 37 Signals, (which also spun off Know Your Company). More recently, Unsplash was acquired by Dribble and split from Crew. The beauty of these side projects is they began as practical solutions for a problem that the development team could relate to without being weighed down by business models.

When I first joined as a growth-hacking intern at Oursky, I was tasked with achieving a 40% conversion rate for A/B testing. Only, that was the first time I’d ever heard the term. Our company had just completed the app Shotbot, which helps developers submit screenshots to iTunes Connect in a few clicks. Of course, the next step was to promote it, and I had to learn the science of A/B testing on the job. It took three A/B tests before I hit a 37% conversion rate on Optimizely. In this post, I’m sharing my mistakes and learnings from each of my three trials.
