Acquire, Convert, Retain – A Guide to CRO For Everyone 

The marketing industry has spent the last 15 years working out how to get well-targeted traffic to websites. Over the last few years it has woken up to the necessity of maximising the value of that traffic with Conversion Rate Optimisation (CRO), which will make a tangible difference that shows on the bottom line. Expect actionable tips that will help you instantly improve your website, interpret the results and better understand fast-changing user behaviour. 


The key takeaways from the talk are the fundamentals of CRO – what it can help with and how to make a start on your first CRO project. Ryan will also cover hypotheses testing, CRO methods and tools, and look at CRO in a multi-device, dual screen world.

About the Speaker
