The future of digital marketing belongs to the optimizers – Chris Goward, WiderFunnel
Today is the best time in history to be an evidence-led marketer.
Data is available everywhere, tools are improving daily, and the business climate is data-friendly. You have the opportunity to become a high-value conversion optimization champion.
Conversion optimization is the science and art of getting a higher percentage of your web visitors to take action and become a lead or customer. This is accomplished by developing and testing valid hypotheses, running controlled A/B or multivariate tests, and evaluating results to lock in the improvement.
But without the right process and tools to guide your optimization efforts, you’ll miss your biggest opportunities.
Chris Goward, optimization thought-leader, shares how leading businesses are using specific optimization processes to gain dramatic revenue lift and insights.
If you’re not testing your digital marketing efforts, you’re falling behind.
The benefits of conversion optimization are no longer up for debate. In a new report released by Ascend2, 71% of respondents described the role of conversion optimization in the overall success of marketing programs as “Very important”. But just 13% described their CRO strategies as “Very successful”.
The marketing industry knows that it should be testing. But most marketers are struggling with the execution, with how to be successful at conversion optimization.
The solution lies in a testing program built to help you discover and test the best ideas.
“If you’re like a lot of companies, you may be thinking, ‘What’s an optimization program?” Many companies still think of optimization as a project or tactic and put little serious effort into building a real program. But that’s changing fast.”
Conversion Rate Optimization tips and tricks are a trap
There are plenty of tips and tricks floating around the ether that promise huge conversion rate lift. But what works well today may not work well tomorrow, and what works for Amazon may not work for you. A structured conversion optimization program will provide you with a stable way of approaching and resolving problems on your website in the long-term.
“Conversion optimization isn’t a one-time project. There isn’t a moment when you’ll find that your site is optimized. It’s an ongoing process and needs a structured framework behind it.”
