It’s been ten years since I started the CXL Agency.
We started off with a value proposition “we build websites that sell”. Most of our time went into building WordPress websites. The initial vision was to templetize and scale building conversion optimized websites. There were many problems with that, and we quickly learned, and adapted.
Where to start? This year was…something. Despite everything going on, we still published, and you still read—and got better at data-driven marketing.
Here are the most read articles of the year.
A very common scenario: A business runs tens and tens of A/B tests over the course of a year, and many of them “win.” Some tests get you 25% uplift in revenue, or even higher.
Yet when you roll out the change, the revenue doesn’t increase 25%. And 12 months after running all those tests, the conversion rate is still pretty much the same. How come?

Whatever your business is, an ever growing chunk of your target customers are using their mobile devices instead of computers to go online.

A differentiation strategy is a way to stand out from the noise and give people a reason to choose your business over others. You’d think companies would be all about that.
Curiously, not so much. In fact, it’s the opposite—the world has a massive sameness problem. Sameness is the default for most companies today.
While running A/B tests on all your traffic at once is often tempting, it’s best to target mobile and desktop audiences separately.
If you think people might buy your products or services without checking out the competition first, think again.
As a marketer and optimizer it’s only natural to want to speed up your testing efforts. So now the question is—can you run more than one A/B test at the same time on your site?
Let’s look into the “why you shouldn’t” and “why you should” run multiple tests at once.
Most businesses struggle with their product pricing strategies. Are you charging too much or too little? What’s the right price to charge so you can grow your bottom line?
