Present those assets to potential customers at the right time in the buying process. I Invest time acquiring, gathering and displaying your company's "persuasive assets." Create your experimental strategy Take all of the ideas you've generated from your research, and prioritize those big, bold, targeted ones that will grow your business in the shortest time. Bold changes give you more profit, and you get quicker, larger returns. Design your experimental web pages Create a wireframe of the new page (or page element). The wireframe must be designed to be more persuasive, believable and user-friendly than the existing version. I Carry out several usability tests on the wireframe and discuss them with anyone who has an empathic understanding of your customers. Conversion Rate Experts can carry out all the research involved in steps 1-6 and then build you winning webpages based on that research. Carry out experiments on your website I Perform A/B tests on your experimental webpages. I Follow a procedure that ensures that all team members understand what the test is, why you're running it, how it fits into the site, how it aligns with the business goals, and how you'll measure success. A/B testing software can calculate which version of the page has generated more conversions than the others. KISSmetrics is great platform for A/B tests and can help you determine which changes are making the most profitable impact. 9. Transfer your winning campaigns into other media Explore how the insights from your winning experiments can be implemented in other parts of your marketing funnel.

Subsequent experimental plans will be based on the outcome of the previous experiments. Each improvement builds upon the success of the previous ones.
