Why conversion rate optimization?
CRO is still the secret sauce for most online giants, whether it is Amazon, Shopify, Airbnb, GoDaddy, Expedia, etc. etc. Before you invest in traffic, your site should be persuasive — it should convert. Getting help from optimization experts is an essential step to making your company’s KPIs grow.
If someone’s going to spearhead such a crucial department, it might as well be you.
Why a course for managers?
Conversion rate optimization is a vast field, so most CRO experts tend to cover only part of it. Very few cover it all. Whether you hire a freelance optimization expert or create an in-house department, you will need to know what is possible and what is likely to work. Without this course, your team is likely to sell you excuses (their limitations disguised as CRO limitations) instead of producing amazing results.
What you’ll learn
In under 3 hours, you will understand this area of growth hacking sufficiently to know how to select conversion experts, identify marketing experiments and create a testing timeline that produces the most impressive results from the get-go.
