Data Driven Decisions: Google’s ’50 shades of Blue’​ experiment

Would you believe it if I told you that switching to a different shade of blue netted Google as additional $200 Mn in Ad revenue?

The shades of blue across other social platforms.

Could a slight variation in colour really have a sizeable impact?

What would have seemed like a pointless experiment(who would care about what shade of blue it is!) is actually a great example, for how data driven customer experience design can work wonders!
