This Academy is also ideal for marketing consultants and marketing agency teams who are looking to increase their conversion and performance knowledge and methodologies to increase the ROI of marketing campaigns.
This program is really targeted to marketers, acquisition and conversion professionals who have a BASIC understanding of how online marketing works and the understanding of a conversion path. You DO NOT need to be an expert and you don't even need to know how to launch an AB test, but you need to be familiar with the conversion process on a website. But it is helpful if you are at least somewhat familiar with online marketing in general.
The courses cover consumer psychology, cognitive principles, UX optimization rules, CRO strategy, me, hods and frameworks. Most importantly, you will learn a thought process and a series of methodologies that helps you design CRO solutions and experiments that suit your problems, your visitors, your products and website. We believe in teaching you how to think through problems so that you are never stuck and playing a CRO guessing game.
Each course gives you rules, methods, and techniques, most of which you can start using as soon as you have completed the course.
We will give you the tools to be successful in any situation or industries.
Using the methodologies, rules, and frameworks you will able to find, find and testing solutions that are appropriate to your visitors and company. If you are ready to work, then I have no doubt you can start to see real results within weeks. It’s not a magic pill, it is a bit of work, but it will change the way you look at your website and how you design and deliver your conversion rate optimisation plans and experiments.
CRO is a complex world that we try to simplify for you. But it requires a bit of commitment. If you do at least 60% of the courses and you launched at least 2/3 experiments and it still doesn't work for you, just send us an email with the example of the tests, we will check the number of courses you completed.
