If you’re pay-per-click search marketing money is going down the drain, and your website isn’t getting the conversions that you want, you can either hope for results to improve on their own, or take control yourself by joining the TEST / TRACK / TWEAK Special Interest Group.
Working on your computer while participating in a teleconference with other like-minded professionals, the TEST / TRACK / TWEAK SIG will help you explore the intricacies and subtleties of marketing your website for results, attracting the right visitors, and converting more of them to opt into your permission marketing program and/or selling them more of your stuff.
Details make the difference, and we’ll discuss how subtle changes in words or layout can double or even triple your results. Best of all, instead of learning something at a meeting, and then trying to remember it when you get back to your computer, you’ll be working on your own computer while attending meetings! Your website won’t get any better on its own. But, you can make it better…one test at a time. The TEST / TRACK / TWEAK SIG will provide a framework for constant improvement, knowledge, and inspiration.
