1. The paradox of choice: better options more or less?
In a society where there is abundance, impatience and endless options, and where everything is just a click away, it is interesting as marketing professionals to stop and think: what if this context was more harmful that positive?
In this article, Paco Lorente brings us the explanation of the paradox of choice, by Berry Schwartz. According to this theory, “it is both positive to have a wide range of options available to the person to choose from as negative if that variety is too wide”.
As people, not just as customers or users, we usually make decisions guided by several factors, one of which is making the best expected decision with the least amount of energy.
This definition brings us to an important thought that we must consider is that having a larger sample of possibilities does not have to be the same as being the best option for the customer.

4.What is site health and why should you use it?
In this April TOP5, we decided to include another SEO article: have you heard of the Site health? It’s really a metric of the SEMrush tool, but we think it’s important that you know this so that you can verify that everything is in order on your website.
What it takes into account are the problems (errors, warnings and notices) present on the web and how dangerous they are for the proper functioning of the site. If you don’t have SEMrush, you can check these settings in Google Search Console.
If you want to dig deeper into this topic, I recommend that you make sure you read this article from SEMrush.
