Put On Your Lab Coats Marketers, Experimenting on Your Site Was Never Easier
September 12th, 2012By:
You’ve optimized emails, you’ve optimized your social streams, but the more I talk to resort marketers, the more I hear that few people (if anyone) have been actively optimizing the content on their site. Got a big pass promotion or deadline coming up? Do a split test, find a winner, and use the better version for the lead up to the next deadline. Split test your booking form and learn, once-and-for-all, how much info you should ask for up front without getting in the way. Same goes for opt-in forms.
If you can improve the performance of just one step of the funnel at a time, more money comes out at the end.
