How should people look at CRO?

CRO is a very controversial topic in the world of e-commerce, but it’s a very important part of it and it’s often overlooked. People think that it’s just about tactics, hacks, and small tweaks of the landing page to make a huge difference, but that’s not it. It’s actually much more than that – it’s the combination of understanding data and applying psychology. So you have to understand your audience and your target market and then understand the psychology behind it – what are the pain points, motives, and desires. 


What are the 4 factors that convert a prospect into a customer?

Whenever Carl and his team are helping a new client grow, they review the customer journey and look at these 4 ways you can encourage people to buy:
