Training > Marketing Summits > Optimization Summit 2013


Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4

The agenda follows a structure that will help you quickly connect each session you attend to a specific phase of optimizing your website.

Optimization, Experimentation, Transformation

Optimization: Determining the value of the company, each product, and each offer. Improving the communication of that value to that value to the customer.

Experimentation: Testing to learn more about what values resonate, and what messaging and processes to secure transactions are most effective.

Transformation: Focused not on only applying what has been learned, but also helping marketers go back and make a cultural shift within their organizations.

The icons found on each session of the agenda indicate which phase of testing will be emphasized.
