Welcome to Lazada’s #FridayLearnings, a series of free learning sessions offered by Ecommerce experts to the community whereby everyone can learn and grow from each other. This is the platform and home for SEA e-commerce expertise, supporting online merchants, collaborating with peers who are going through the same challenges as we make things easier, and providing an environment where merchants can network, learn and thrive together. Our goal here is to build a community of eCommerce sellers who can learn and grow from each other.
In this episode, we have Sanchita Ray who leads the Lazada User & UX Research team to share on the different types of research and data, which we use to uncover consumer psyche and needs, how it impacts their behavior; and how all these data are brought together to make informed decisions on designing a world-class product.
