How do you tell the difference between a conversion optimization amateur and Pro?
Here’s a free tip: The main difference is the mindset.
Amateurs are all about CRO tactics or best practices. They quickly diagnose what’s wrong with a website and offer solutions based on best practices even before conducting research.
Pros play it safe, and they never bet a lot on tactics.
They know there is a place for best practices in conversion optimization – but they understand that the best optimization tactics are born out of a strategy.
So, they first focus on building a well-researched CRO strategy …Read More
In the past, it was widely accepted that you needed to go through college and obtain a degree in order to qualify for a good marketing job.
But times have changed now.
Giant companies like Google, Apple, IBM, Nordstrom, and Hilton now recognize your skills instead of just formal education level as a qualification.
Other companies, big and small, are also following suit!
Slowly but surely, the hiring landscape is moving away from recognizing a college degree as a gold standard. The skills-based hiring philosophy is taking over – especially in the marketing space.

When crafting a high-converting landing page, well, there are dozens of price principles you can take advantage of.
One of the most effective principles is called price anchoring.
