Feb. 1, 2013 - PRLog -- San Francisco - Competition and marketplace bottlenecks make discoverability and distribution so tough for mobile applications that the vast majority of them never earn back their cost of development, much less make money for their creators. Seventy-five percent (75%) of mobile applications are opened just once and never used again - and that's only if the application was chosen over the millions of competitive offerings on the iOS and Android app markets. In order to build a successful mobile business, companies have to understand the decision-making process of smartphone users at each discrete step of the mobile conversion funnel. Only by developing a methodical, data-driven approach to tweaking each piece of the mobile user experience, will mobile application developers learn to identify, prioritize, and improve on features that drive your key business metrics.

Mariya Yao, Product Strategist, Designer And Founder of Xanadu, a design consultancy specializing in the ideation and launch of new mobile experiences, will discuss how to get into the minds of smartphone users and understand their decision-making process on Monday, February 4, 2013 at the simultaneous times of 10:00 AM Pacific Time, 11:00 AM MST Denver, 12 Noon CST Chicago, and 1:00 PM EST Boston.

Participants are welcome to listen live at, call in to talk on the show (323) 927-2957 and to participate on Twitter by following @ProdMgmtTalk and tweeting using the hashtag #ProdMgmtTalk.

Mariya says, “Getting traction on mobile is a tough challenge for most startups. I'm excited to share my learnings in order to make this task a bit easier for the rest of the community on the Global Product Management Talk broadcast.”

Mariya is also speaking at the Startup Product Summit in San Francisco on February 7, 2013. More information at
