Non-blog related highlights of the year

#1 by far: the launch of CXL Institute

This has been huge for us, and it will be huge for the industry as a whole too. Big plans, big growth. High impact.

#2: Our annual events CXL Live and Elite Camp.

#3: Releasing our conversion-focused UX guidelines for ecommerce

If you have high transaction volume, you get tons of A/B testing ideas from our research-based guidelines.

If you run a low traffic website and can’t do A/B testing yet, you’re most likely better off by implementing all of these right now.

  1. A great year for Conversion XL. You guys are the best. Keep up tge good work.

  2. Hey Peep, really nice articles, especially on your beliefs. I also traveled after my business gave me a bit of location independence, and this was a huge eye opener for me. As you wrote you were one in Central America, I now wonder if I may have seen you in Costa Rica :D

    Important question — how do you handle the kids with all the travelling you do? My wife and I want to have kids soon, so I’m wondering what’s the best approach.

    Lots of love from Taiwan!
