What CROs need to know about Heatmaps with Deborah O’Malley

Heatmaps to the rescue! Creating an impactful website hero section above the fold is vital for user engagement. Clear value propositions and compelling calls to action are essential, as users often don’t scroll past this section. Heat mapping, combined with other techniques like exit polls and A/B testing, provides a comprehensive understanding of user behavior. While urgency and scarcity tactics can be effective, users have become more skeptical of overused strategies like countdown timers. Understand your audience through analytics data and tailor your optimization strategies accordingly, whether it’s for B2C, B2B, or other sectors. Mobile interactions may have imprecise heat map data, so use it alongside other sources for a well-rounded view.

How to Maximize Hypotheses Testing ft. Eduardo Marconi Pinheiro Lima

In the world of Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO), Eduardo, a seasoned practitioner, shares his journey and the evolving landscape of CRO in Brazil. He underscores the importance of maintaining a problem-solution mindset and learning from mistakes to drive meaningful impact. One core principle he highlights is the need to focus on hypotheses that yield significant results, comparing them to squeezing fruit for juice. This strategy involves exploring promising hypotheses further and discarding those with neutral or unimpressive outcomes, a practice essential for effective experimentation, whether in-house or at an agency. The key takeaway is to persevere with ideas, akin to squeezing every drop of insight from hypotheses, and leveraging comprehensive data for a deeper understanding, a competitive edge held by in-house roles in the experimentation field.

What you need to know about Landing pages with Claire More

Integrating landing pages is crucial for tailored user experiences. Without it, visitors are directed to generic pages lacking personalized messaging. Landing pages are designed to enhance conversion rates and ROI. E-commerce companies benefit by using various types of landing pages, like the classic hero for focused products, listicle hero for storytelling, collection hero for multiple items, and content advertorials for top-funnel content. Mistakes include using one-size-fits-all pages and lacking customer-oriented content. Improve by collaborating with ads teams, using customer voices, and continuous experimentation. Claire More from Splitbase shared insights on optimizing landing pages for effective campaigns.

Don’t test everything with Oliver Palmer

Don’t test everything. Experimentation isn’t about proving how clever you are. Mistakes in testing ideas from your own head are common; personal bias clouds results. High-performing experimentation needs executive buy-in and integrated roles. Successful teams engage diverse players with vested interest, ensuring hypotheses formation and metric selection are comprehensive. Valuable experimentation saves time by testing what not to do. Rather than just chasing conversion lifts, recognize when improvements won’t make a difference. Cultural shifts, humility, and prioritizing efficient use of time are key components of effective experimentation programs. Test what makes sense.

He emphasizes the importance of educating stakeholders about data-driven decision-making, and he highlights the need for strong experimentation infrastructure and high-quality hypothesis testing. He believes that while democratization is valuable, it’s important to balance it with maintaining the quality of ideas and statistical rigor.

AI-based personalization and rule-based personalization can coexist. Brands should prioritize personalizing their websites and consider first-party data support.

Building a CRO Culture & Ideation Strategies with Lucia van den Brink

By implementing ideation strategies and fostering a culture of experimentation, companies can drive innovation and stay ahead of the curve. Building an experimentation culture is crucial for companies that want to innovate and stay ahead of the competition. It starts with creating an environment where experimentation is encouraged and failure is seen as an opportunity to learn and improve. Teams should be given the freedom to try new ideas and test them quickly using small-scale experiments. It’s important to collect and analyze data from these experiments to make informed decisions about what works and what doesn’t. Lucas Vos interviews Lucia van den Brink in this great AMA session.

Get Executive buy-in for your CRO program with Jonny Longden

Let’s face it, experimentation is completely misunderstood. The power and the benefit and potential of it is to innovate and develop a business.

Improve conversions with the Message-market Fit framework With Daphne Tideman

Message-Market fit is the idea that a message, whether it be a product, service or idea, needs to resonate with a specific target market in order to be successful. It involves finding the right message that effectively communicates the value proposition of a product or service to a particular audience, in a way that resonates with them.

Avoid AB Testing Statistics Mistakes with Max LI

A/B testing plays a critical role in decision-making – but so does AB Testing Statistics Mistakes. In data-driven companies, A/B tests not only prove positive impacts of product features (treatments) but also provide evidence to safely roll out neutral features that are not expected to move business metrics. When rolling out a neutral feature, we need to test if the treatment is non-inferior to control, and conventional A/B testing is not suitable in this case.

Pragmatists will grow the CRO industry – not purists – with Matt Scaysbrook

This attitude has a negative impact on new entrants to the industry and sets completely the wrong tone for the next generation. The greater the participation in the industry, the stronger it will become – the wider that participation, the more ideas (and the more diverse those ideas) will come through. And that is only a good thing for us all longer-term.

Test before you build anything or you’ll waste time course-correcting with Rommil Santiago

There’s a lot of talk about how to find things to test, how to analyze tests, and the importance of iterating on tests.

Not every insight is derived from an A/B Test with Daniela Marquez

Curiosity needs to be a driver in every experimenter’s toolkit. What is going on in the head of my customer? What is really their job-to-be-done? When buying flowers, we typically think of the standard occasions: Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, new baby & sympathy. But if we were to structure our ecommerce website on those occasions alone, we may be addressing the majority, but we’d be missing out on the real motivation behind the purchase as well as other reasons people buy flowers.

How Wordle proves that Experimentation works

Interestingly, there are a lot of parallels between Wordle and the Craft of Experimentation. Find out how.

Can you run tests on sites with little traffic?

From a pure experimentation perspective – one absolutely can forego using statistics and just see what happens. We can believe the dictionary, the dictionary definition of an experiment is: “a scientific procedure undertaken to make a discovery, test a hypothesis, or demonstrate a known fact.” A scientific procedure (aka the scientific method) states nothing about having to use a statistical approach for analysis. However…

Best practices might be killing your experimentation culture – 3 reasons why with Ana Catarina Cizilio

Everybody is doing it, so you have to do it too, right? As my mom used to say: you’re not everyone! Best practices are not experimentation and you should know that.

It may generate new ideas and grab your attention when you’re starting to experiment, but that’s the only good thing. To have a great experiment culture, you need to learn from your tests. Let’s talk more about this?
