Praise for The Marketer's Concise Guide to CRO:

“ I read, I took notes for a half dozen tests my clients deserve. Thanks, Scott, for the motivation and tools to be better at my job. — Joe Hage, CEO, Medical Marcom

“My biggest takeaway is the need to test every pitch, every call to action and every layout. Not even the most talented, experienced creatives know what will work and what won’t. This book will make you rich.” — Bob Leonard, Managing Consultant, acSellerant

“I’d recommend the CRO guide to anyone who wants to learn how to boost ‘connections’ with visitors. This guide will help you create more engaged readers and turn them into sales. In the end you will become a smarter marketer.” — Bill Flitter, CEO,

“I now feel way more confident that we can improve our CRO efforts. The book is a solid read and a quick one as well. Highly recommended! — Jon Wuebben, CEO Content Launch

Joe Pulizzi, CEO of the Content Marketing Institute, and with whom the author worked closely for a number of years, writes in his Foreword that in "2016 Content Marketing Benchmark study, content marketing effectiveness actually went down year over year.

And this is exactly why the book you are reading right now is so important..."
