Often, we focus our online efforts on bringing NEW customers to our website but little to no focus on what they do when they actually get to our sites.  Using A/B and Multivariate testing to improve conversion rates is often times the fastest route to increasing revenue online.    With testing and optimization, you can generate huge lifts in revenue with no additional media dollars.  We will discuss how to get started, what tools to use, how to prioritize which areas of your site to focus on, and give tips on what kind of updates make the biggest impact. Finally, we will review some common pit falls, how to define the proper segment of customer to focus on for each test, and a high level introduction into statistical significance. 

Key Topics and Takeaways

  •  How to increase the conversion rate of your website with no optimization to your media or media mix.
  •  How to give your online marketing ROI a mega boost in a short amount of time.

Location: DaVinci Institute, 511 E. South Boulder Road, Louisville, CO 80027

Web Site:

HTML is the fundamental information technology of the web. It describes the content not only of traditional web sites, but that of full-blown web applications of every description. Without an understanding of HTML and where it fits in the stack, you cannot be an effective web developer. This hands-on Boot Camp will give you a conceptual understanding of HTML, a brief overview of its companion CSS technology, and how the two work together. Then we will walk through the production of a complete web page from top to bottom. When it is all over, you should have both a theoretical foundation and the practical benefits of direct experience.

NOTE: Attendees should bring their laptop to this boot camp.
