Testing and Targeting: Website Optimization Best Practices

Jennifer Wilson, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Webtrends
Marketers are under great pressure to move beyond creative thinking and become more results-driven. Join Sr. Product Marketing Manager Jennifer Wilson to learn about how you can increase your revenue and website conversions by developing relevant content and offers that are essential to generating leads, increasing conversions, and driving sales. Learn how you can understand online behavior so you can effectively target your site visitors.

The emergence of website optimization has enormous upside for both companies and site visitors. Site optimization is not a one-time event or placing search engine terms in copy. It is an ongoing process that helps drive conversions and revenue. It is not based on guesswork or opinion, but on data of actual visitor activity, preference and behavior. This data, derived from a process of testing and targeting, fuels the optimization process, leading to better results and value, including personalization of customer engagement. In this session, you will learn the critical components to website optimization that will help grow your business.

  • Where are we now, and where are our customers tomorrow?

    According to the CMO Council’s 2014 State of Marketing report, marketers’ investments into online video is taking the next evolutionary leap from experimentation into full-fledged testing. In order words, investments are increasing at a pace like never before. Why? Customers are viewing online video like never before.

    According to a recent report from Neilsen, online video consumption has risen from 13 minutes per day to 27 minutes. While this still pales in comparison to TV consumption, marketers have clearly seen that there is something to online video, and to be late to the game could be a disaster.

    This trend brings with it a slew of obvious questions: What ROI should we expect? What is getting reallocated? Does this mean TV ads should be pulled in favor of online? What content are people really viewing and how will my brand be relevant in that context?

    Join us as the CMO Council delves into a deep dive into online video, asking marketers and industry experts where the key trends, opportunities and pitfalls are when it comes to online video. What are industry leaders investing in…what content are they creating…and how is ROI really being measured?

  • Great content engages your audience, helps with lead generation, lets you learn where leads are in the buying process, and helps sell. Creating content that includes all of these components happens because it’s designed to pass leads along a guided pathway from basic curiosity toward a desire to buy. It includes clear directions toward action, with compelling content that encourage conversion. It can be used and reused across websites, blogs, emails and more. When it all comes together, how a visitor consumes your content tells you where each lead is on the path towards becoming a customer.

    Join Jason Miller, CTO of Motorcycle Superstore, and a Webtrends optimization expert as they discuss real-life experiences with ramping up testing and how to create success. He also reveals how Webtrends helped Motorcycle Superstore uncover $2.5 million in incremental revenue through a strategic testing program.
