Some of the companies that train their teams at CXL:

Facebook Ads have changed drastically in the past few years. Apple’s iOS updates shifted the ad landscape even further.

Many e-commerce practitioners are left wondering: what do I need to know to make Facebook Ads work for me? How do I navigate these changes, and understand its impact on my business? Are there things I should be doing on my site and in my business to compensate?

CXL is the most robust e-learning platform for digital marketers. From day one when I discovered their blog filled with well-documented articles up until now, when I am finishing my digital psychology and persuasion degree, they became and remained my go-to source of educational content. The neuromarketing degree helped shape me into a better digital marketer professional and scale my knowledge about 10x. The courses and minidegrees were the best educational investment I have made, and I would always recommend it to anyone who want to nurture their marketing career.

Once I got into the actual courses, I realized that this was indeed going to be the serious content I was expecting.

Suffice it to say that I’m taking notes.

I was skeptical at first but the CXL course on product marketing is money, in every sense of the word, especially with ProfitWell’s Patrick Campbell talking about monetisation.

I was aware of a lot of what Patrick and others spoke of but the value lies in structuring your knowledge so you have a clear mind and can take more onboard. Perfect time to do a free trial, watch that (even if you skim most of it) and then join the Olympics. Sounds like a plug, it kind of is but I think it is a good idea nonetheless.

The Maximizing Audiences for PPC was f*cking excellent!!! I watched the videos many times and recently used some of their tactics and it’s working! CXL ain’t nuttin’ but the truth.

Zeenat G.

I got to know about CXL in a Product Marketing bootcamp.

CXL helped me in transitioning into tech in a non-tech role. I got a Growth Hacker role 3 weeks into the Growth Marketing Minidegree.

I am now a PMM at VIOU digital. I recommend CXL to everyone I know that wants to learn about Growth.

Radvilas Š.

Anyone interested in genuinely understanding the math behind CRO and A/B testing absolutely has to use CXL.

My whole team has a great time discussing the material and aligning our views on processes we use, and to come up with ideas to implement in the future.

Amr T.

The best and most practical, in-depth training. PERIOD. Blog articles alone are jam-packed with tons of “practical-value”.

CXL should be the standard for marketing knowledge and training. I’m aiming to finish 3 minidegrees by the end of next year and will start off with technical marketing.

Thank you so much Peep for starting CXL and the amazing work you’re doing.

Jordi D.

Look no further if you are seeking a place for new knowledge around topics as: CRO, Growth marketing, Digital analytics etc.

Helped me upping my CRO knowledge and skills. Mostly on testing, conversion copy and calculating results.

Davis Grietens

It was set up very well, good pace, good production quality, good progression through the material.
