We often focus our online efforts on bringing new customers to our website but little to no focus on what they do when they actually get to our site. Using A/B and multivariate testing to improve conversion rates are often times the fastest route to increasing revenue online. With testing and optimization, you can generate huge lifts in revenue with no additional media dollars. Join Bryan Olschock to learn how to get started, what tools to use, how to prioritize which areas of your site to focus on, tips on what kind of updates make the biggest impact, common pit falls, how to define the proper segment of customer to focus on for each test, and a high level introduction into statistical significance.

However, with big data comes the responsibility to convert data to intelligence for social media campaigns and for marketers of every level to understand compliance.

Tag management is a growing field that's allowing digital marketers to do more and stay agile in their work.

Join Ali Benham to learn how digital marketers from major brands are using this new class of application to increase marketing agility, reduce costs, and improve web site performance. In addition, you will learn how tag management is helping companies with the rise in popularity of various platforms, including mobile sites, apps, videos and more.
