  • 1. Form Optimization3 case studies to convince your boss (and Sales) toreduce form fields
  • 2. Editor’s Note Dear Marketer, We know you’ve been struggling to convince your boss and Sales leaders to reduce the number of form fields on your landing pages. Some leaders need a little more proof than others. To help you win them over in the fight to reduce frustrating form fields (and improve your conversion rates), we’ve created this deck with three case studies showing how reducing form fields gets results. Please feel free to download it and customize it for your own boss. You’ll look and feel a whole lot smarter when you pitch them with an impressive deck and numbers to back you up. Sincerely, The MarketingExperiments Editorial Team #webclinic

The Caveat Sometimes, counter intuitively, you want more friction in your process… • Lead Generation Optimization: Finding the right amount of friction The Additional Resources • Lead Generation: Testing form field length reduces cost-per-lead by $10.66 • This Just Tested: An aesthetic design that produced 189% more leads • Hidden Friction: The 6 silent killers of conversion#webclinic
