If AZIMA’s next monthly speaker has any one message for you, it is “You should test that.” And by “that” he means images, headlines, navigation, colors, buttons, and every other element on your website to determine whether it is turning visitors into customers.

Chris Goward, founder of WiderFunnel, is next up, on Thursday, Jan. 16, at the Hilton Scottsdale Resort & Villas. The author of a new book, Goward will share tips about conversion optimization, something he calls part science and part art.

“Conversion Optimization dramatically lifts sales for all types of companies,” Goward said. “But, studies show that those with the right strategy and structured process get twice as much benefit as others. That’s what I’ll share at AZIMA.”
