The Power of Compounding Conversion Rate Increases

April 20th, 2010

After reading my colleague Melissa Burdon’s last two posts about impressive testing wins with a client, I thought it would be fun to discuss the amazing financial gains that come to businesses that keep testing instead of assuming they’ve gotten their “win” and should move on to other things.  I hope to illustrate that in conversion rate optimization, persistence pays off in real financial value.

I also want to help illustrate the power of “compounding conversion optimization,” meaning that, like compounding interest on a…

March 29th, 2010

We work with lots of companies that are interested in optimizing their conversion rate, and reaping the financial rewards that come with higher conversion and increased marketing efficiency.  But, some clients don’t increase their conversion rate after subscribing to our conversion rate optimization (CRO) service.

Why am I talking about our ‘non-success stories’? (My boss may wring my neck for this).  Because the roadblocks that keep them from succeeding may keep you from succeeding, so call it a friendly warning :) Optimizing…

Anatomy of an Optimization Recommendation

March 19th, 2010

These are some of our thoughts on what makes for a good online marketing optimization…

Credibility: Yours to Loose

March 5th, 2010

sotpShow of hands: How many people noticed the typo in the title?  My guess is that those who did were ready to jump all over my mistake.  It was done intentionally to help prove my point: Visitors notice typos. (For those who are still confused: loose = free or released from fastening or attachment; lose = to come to be without.)
