Emerging Discipline of Website Conversion Optimization Is Improving ROI for Online Marketers

Agenda Announced for Two-Day “Conversion Conference” in New York City

It’s a simple fact: while billions of dollars will be spent in online advertising this year, a small fraction of companies are optimizing and testing their websites to ensure they’re getting the most value from their web traffic. A relatively small group of marketers, usability experts and psychologists are now understanding the important role of conversion rate optimization in improving the results of an online campaign.

Conversion rate optimization is the process of increasing website leads -- without spending more money on generating traffic -- by “optimizing” web page elements such as colors, fonts, messaging, imagery and overall layout, and then testing the different variations to determine which combination is most successful in prompting visitors to take action. In October, more than 20 experts in the field will convene for the two-day Conversion Conference in New York City to educate marketers on this emerging discipline.
