There are plenty of good website conversion books out there that give you a good overview and present you with plenty of ideas and concepts.
Unfortunately, they all either read like an encyclopedia or only cover a subset of website optimization.
This book is different - It gives you step-by-step instructions and an easy to follow plan on how to actually go about implementing everything you need to do.
As the author states, there is no silver bullet for successful website optimization. It requires working on several fronts and integrating several disciplines but if you follow the plan you WILL get great results.
The only thing "missing" from the book is that at times it doesn't go into enough detail and depth.
I'm fine with that as I don't expect a "how to" book be as thorough as an encyclopedia, but at times I did feel that the process covers 95% of cases and not 100% :)
if you are looking to increase you site's conversion rates and overall user experience and want a complete process that works - get this book!
Actually, if you have a business website, you'd be crazy to wait around for 27 weeks to get it optimized. The ROI for optimizing your website is, according to recent polls, the highest for all marketing activities. You'd lose so much in potential sales that it makes much more sense to hire someone and get it done.
Let's imagine instead that you want to learn the ideas behind website optimization. This book takes you through all the main topics:
* the use of analytics tools and testing tools
* keyword and competitor research
* online marketing research
* techniques for speeding up your site
* website layout and usability
* shopping cart usability
* site usability on mobile devices
* best practices for email marketing
All of this is written for beginners, with little jargon. There are no specific instructions for how to make the changes recommended. Statements like, "...you need to offer embedding options so that visitors can embed your videos on their own blog, website, or social network" are not followed by instructions on providing those options. This book will therefore be most useful to site owners who have developers available, or for developers who have the technical skills but would like to have the knowledge to improve their clients' results.
If you're not wedded to the idea of spending an hour a day, you could also work through this book more quickly to identify the top changes you need to make at your company website.
Areas of focus include:
-Web analytics & testing tools
-Understanding visitor needs & behavior
-Understanding website conversions
-Optimizing for repeat visits
-Learning from your results
It's involved work, but that is to be expected when optimizing your website. Many of the steps and suggestions found in this book are not necessary in order to run a successful website, but following the guidelines and taking the actions that you choose to take is certainly worthwhile.
Be prepared to do some serious research and testing while testing your website. This book is a great companion on that quest.
