Conversion Rate Optimization Experts, A List to Bookmark Now
As a fellow conversion rate optimization expert, I love keeping track of the top people in the business. I do so much competitive analysis, in fact, its one of my favorite pastimes. For me it’s not so much about competition, but instead the love for the game. That game being finding innovative tweaks, experiments and overhauls to increase conversion rates. We are really just getting started in the web. From understanding color schemes to slow selling users to creating better device specific UX, it is an exciting time to be in CRO. These are the people to watch, read, and follow to understand everything there is to know about CRO. This list is in no particular order. (Side note, If you are unfamiliar with CRO.
