At Webtrends Optimize, we are exceptionally proud of our talented team and the work they do. A lot of our success comes from trying new things and experimenting with different styles to achieve the best outcome for our clients and partners. We host webinars with like-minded individuals to produce open discussions and debates for audiences looking to expand their knowledge or try something new.
The topics we explore vary, often drawing on case studies, our own experiences, and new things we and/or our partners think everyone should dig a little deeper into. Our goal is to make these webinars educational and informative so that they can really help develop the audience’s understanding and provide solutions for real-world digital problems.
We’ve also hosted a number of LiveLabs - 100% practical, platform-agnostic, live coding sessions, where we pick up various challenges suggested by members of the community. Over a few hours, we'll demonstrate how to build challenging experiences, highlight good coding habits, etc., and build experiences from scratch. These sessions should elevate your team from "it's not possible" to "we've seen exactly how to do it."

A recent study showed that the success rate of selling to an existing customer is 60-70%, while selling to a new customer is only 5-20%. So, how can brands create an effective customer engagement strategy in 2023 that improves retention and boosts conversion? Is there a secret sauce that can drive retention in 2023?
We'll cover: Retention through smart engagement; Personalized touchpoints that stoke; Interactions that surprise; Gamification is loyalty reborn.

Forms are one of the trickiest parts of a website/app to improve on. They are usually found at the business end of journeys, just before purchase, which means it is a crucial point not to lose your visitor. To enable frustration-free forms, you need to analyse either the behaviour of your existing customers, at which point forms are abandoned or where page view time is excessive.
In this Webinar, hosted by our Product Director Sandeep Shah, we explore why it is so important to optimise your forms, what we look at, hypotheses we’ve tested and important things we’ve learnt along the way. Expect to leave with a greater appreciation for what to research, hypotheses to test and what you might see as a result.

This webinar delves into the reality of Google Analytics 4 (GA4) and dismisses many common myths. GA4 is something which is discussed a lot, but the best way to implement and use it is rarely emphasised very well (even by Google themselves!).
Here, our own Stuart Rex discusses all the key questions around GA4 with Jill Quick, an Analytics Consultant and Trainer who focuses on all things involved in measurement, from analytics, to data visualisation, reporting and BigQuery, helping brands get the most out of their measurement strategy through training, reviews and audits, troubleshooting and consulting. Topics covered include what GA4 actually is, how it works, what you can do with it, how to approach it, and why it’s cool! Also why you should care…

Working out which metrics to measure performance against can be a minefield, with internal teams competing for impact on their own KPIs. Even worse is having to report on an unreliable dataset. In this webinar, Sandeep is joined by John Mills, a CRO Product Owner who specialises in creating winning strategies and frameworks that deliver real, quantifiable results for enterprise-level and SMBs across multiple industries in both B2B and B2C.
Some of the main things which are covered are:

Some straightforward questions, which so many businesses struggle to answer... What was the last change you made to your website? Why did you make it? How confident are you that it will have the desired impact? How much did it cost? What will be the ROI? By putting testing at the heart of your web development, you can build your strategy around the fundamentals of research and experimentation, knowing which changes will have the biggest impact and return on investment.
This webinar will show the processes you need to follow to put CRO at the heart of your eCommerce strategy.
These include generating, capturing, and prioritising ideas, planning and prioritising your testing programme, streamlining your development operations, splitting your dev queue to speed up progress, embracing failure and going again, and more.

Would you spend 90 mins to save yourself £40,000? This Live Lab details real-time personalisation you can do yourself. We will show you how to level-up your technical capability with real-time behavioural data. One of the more expensive parts of working with (some) testing providers is often buying into their real-time personalisation capability.
As we'll show you, you can solve a big handful of use-cases yourself in 90 minutes with a bit of focus and direction. By the end of this session, you'll be able to target users based on behaviour such as their price point interests, categories they've browsed through, and sizes they've picked along their journey.

This webinar explains the statistics behind AB testing, without needing to be a mathematician or stats expert. Understanding how to read the results of AB tests is incredibly important if you want to make sure you're not making decisions based on incorrect data. On the other hand, this is a dark and confusing world which is impenetrable to most business users. But there is a way to understand enough without diving too far into the detail.
Our own Sandeep Shah joins Jonny Longden, Conversion Director at Journey Further, who provides a 'just enough' explanation of what you need to know to make the right decisions without ever mentioning a p-value.
Drawing from their own experience with experimentation, they delve into why AB testing is risk management and a decision-making tool, how to plan and understand the statistics and interpret the results, how to conduct research and generate learning after every test and more!

CRO, in simple terms, focuses on improving conversion. But, improving conversion rates is about more than just pushing content around on a page, it’s taking genuine business problems and looking for solutions. And when innovating, making sure we understand the impact of the work we do.

Whether your journey includes research into more granular behaviour to understand the situation better, or solving complex business problems with technology, we've got it.
Our work in CRO leads to finding solutions to real problems. Not just trying to move the needle 1% each time, but helping to secure business by solving real challenges.
