Today’s Ecommerce Vendor Q&A is by Mike Belasco, Co-Founder of ConversionIQ.com, a conversion rate optimization company built for retailers with more than 100,000 visitors per month.
Sounds like a really interesting service for retailers who can afford it. If you’re not at the 100,000 visitors per month range, you can check out solutions like crazyegg.com – it’s self service but you can at least begin testing.
Just make sure each page you have has enough visitors to test. We’ve been trying to test a few things on the blog here and we found certain actions we want to a/b test might take a couple years to have a statistically significant test. :)
Take it away Mike!
