  • Slide 36
    Let me give you an example:
    When you look at these 2 pages I’ll show you, the only thing that’s different between Page A and Page B is that the green button on the first page says “Customize it”
  • Slide 37
    and the green button on page B that says “Personalize Now” –
  • Slide 38
    on the surface, both of these sites seem almost exactly the same…in fact “Personalize Now, and Customize it” sound like the same thing. Do you think there is any difference in performance between these two pages? And if so, which do you think would perform better?
    While most people wouldn’t expect to see a difference in results, and 99% of web developers would never think to even test for a difference,
  • Slide 39
    Page B, “personalize now” generated 24% more sales, and even more importantly, a 47% increase in revenue per visitor.
    If you have any accounting or marketing background you’ll know that an increases like that can result in more than a 100% increase in profitability. One simple well placed change like that can means hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars of additional profit for clients….and that’s the difference between web development, and digital marketing.
  • Slide 40
    I’ll give you another example, of some different versions of the smiley cookie website, selling the same product. …I’ll give you a few seconds to look at each.
  • Slide 41
    And keep in mind…that’s all we have…just a few seconds is all the time most people spend on a page.
  • Slide 42
    Do you think there is much of a difference in performance? And if so, what’s the key element that made the difference?
    …now if you chose page A you were right…it dramatically outperformed the elements you see on page B….
  • Slide 43
    in fact what you see on page A increased sales by 40% and increased revenue per sale by another 41%! Again, a huge potential impact on smileycookie’s profits!
    But the reason page A outperformed the others may not be what you think….
  • Slide 44
    the element that made the real difference was right here. The wording… ‘Order Today -> Ships Next Business Day’
    This offer made all the difference across all of the other elements tested. Five different offers were tested on the SmileyCookies homepage and all of the site traffic was split up equally among the different variations.
  • Slide 45
    Again, most people wouldn’t even notice the difference, but the owners of smileycookie sure did when it was time to count the profits.
    Again, 99% of web developers wouldn’t have even measured this difference.
    And for those that consider themselves marketers as opposed to just web developers,
