“Conversion Rate Experts’ real value for us was getting an expert opinion and putting some real added science behind it, and we really wanted to see if we could get some big wins and accelerate that rate.
“From our internal research, they seemed to be the best. They seemed to have worked with some really great clients. They had some amazing testimonials. They had some really great success with customers that they’d worked with in the past. We had a lot of confidence that we could really learn a lot from their method.
“I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly they picked up our business. It can be fairly complicated and very soon after we started working with them it was like working with anyone else on our team who works here full-time. The best aspect of working with CRE has been the results for our business growth and getting to learn from their research-based approach to how they develop test ideas.

“What I appreciate about CRE is that they do push for what they want you to test and they have real conviction behind what they do. They also gave us a lot of confidence based on their expertise around what I probably thought might’ve been a little more aggressive tests, and giving us the confidence to try those and to experiment and take larger risks—that in the end turned out to pay off.
“If there’s room to improve your conversion rate and you have the necessary traffic to do it, you can expect that they’re going to have ideas that will drive growth, and they’ll teach you how to test them and to prioritize them.”
