Plenty of people call themselves expert optimizers but few understand even the fundamentals. I have put together this in-depth and very hands-on coaching curriculum to give you the tools and mindset necessary to become a successful pro in the CRO industry.
You’ll not only learn proven testing methodologies and conversion optimization skills but will gain access to the same processes that I’ve used to grow my business into one of the top CRO agencies in the world.
Whether you’re a freelancer, an agency, or someone serious about a career in CRO, you’ll gain a set of skills that makes you an invaluable asset to your clients and company.
Grow your business, make more money, and attract higher paying clients
This program will enable you to either add conversion optimization to your current offering, or expand what you offer right now. This in turn will translate into new, cold cash. If you put what you learn here in practice, I promise at least 10x returns in the first year.
By doing higher quality work, you'll be able to charge more. More than you might think. I will also teach you how to get new business, close deals, maintain long client relationships and price your services.
Build In-Demand Skills That Add Value for Years
This program is about teaching you an actual skill. This is not the latest fad, or a hack that you can exploit only for the next 3 months. This is about a real skill that is highly in demand - everyone and their mother want to hire optimizers right now. But there's a huge shortage of talent.
Optimizers are polymaths - they needs to speak design, copywriting, persuasion, statistics, psychology, analytics and then some. So rookie optimizers focus on tactics (they read on a blog post), while true professionals have a structured approach to all of this. This program will teach you that.
Copy My Every Process: See How I Work
You've read hundreds of blog posts on optimization. That's why you know that nobody is showing you how they actually work on a client project. But I will.
Watch me actually decide on how to go about a client project, set up data collection, analyze the data and pull insights out of it, turn those into test hypotheses and eventually fix or test them. My biggest learnings and aha-moments have come from observing the full process an expert uses. Now you have the same opportunity.
Become A Top 1% Optimizer
Mediocre people are dime a dozen. Every other high school kid is calling themselves an SEO guy, and the same will eventually happen to conversion optimization. Junk advice and rubbish blog posts are already everywhere. Soon every digital marketing guy will offer (or rather claim to offer) conversion optimization services.
That's nothing to worry about if you're among the very best - there's always demand for the best. But you should worry if you're not doing everything you can to become the very best.

This is a true coaching program, which means that it's interactive, and requires your active participation. We will be optimizing an actual website. If you're not ready to take a proactive approach to learning, look somewhere else. This will be intense. I am serious about helping you become a top 1% optimizer.
✓ Two live webinars per week (screenshare sessions, watch me work)
✓ Put theory in practice right away: we'll optimize an actual website, week by week
✓ Get assignments and feedback to your work
✓ 3 month All-Access membership to the CXL Institute (worth $897)

After you join the program, you will be added to the online members-only forum. That's a place for non-stop discussions and learning between you guys and myself.
In addition to ongoing forum discussions, we have 2 weekly live webinars (typically ~10am EST). We do screenshares, I will do actual optimization work and you can see what I'm doing, what I'm looking at and why. We'll dig in the data, and have an ongoing Q&A session. Each webinar is between 1 and 2 hours. Each session is recorded, so you won't miss anything if you can't attend live.
You also get access to written learning materials + videos. I will add new content as needed.
Each week has a different central theme, and each week you get an assignment to work on. This way you get to practice what we learn - and get feedback so you can grow. Afterall, we'll be optimizing an actual website.

I've run a similar coaching program six times now. Ask me for references, happy to connect you to my many graduates.
I spent years figuring this stuff out on my own. But my highest jumps in competency always came from learning from other people who had been doing it longer than me.
