Conversion Rate Optimization

Conversion rate optimization (CRO) is a discipline that focuses on the testing of landing pages, aiming to find the optimal design and messaging mixture that produces higher conversion rates.

The CRO process uses research (user feedback and data analysis) to produce an "experiment hypothesis" - which is used in A/B testing to increase your conversion rate. A new wave of marketing products like Unbounce (and a growing number of optimization specialists) is helping more marketers include CRO in their workflow.
