WiderFunnel Becomes Canada’s First Authorized Consultant for Google Website Optimizer
Canadian marketing firm helps turn more website visitors into customers and subscribers
VANCOUVER, BC (Oct. 18, 2007) – Vancouver, BC-based WiderFunnel Marketing is the first and, to date, the only Canadian authorized consultant for Google Website Optimizer™, a new program that simultaneously tests combinations of website content (text and images) to determine which features yield greater customer satisfaction and ultimately greater sales. It’s a tool web marketers and online retailers, even those with already high traffic volumes, have been waiting for for years.
While Google Website Optimizer is available free online, the key to maximizing its benefits lies in being able to skillfully analyze its reports and having the marketing and customer relationship management experience to know which site-content changes are worth testing so that customers will use a site the way the business wants them to. That’s where the benefits of using a Google Website Optimizer Authorized Consultant come in.
“We have stringent requirements for our authorized consultants,” said Tom Leung, Business Product Manager for Google Website Optimizer. “They have to have a strong track record in planning, executing and troubleshooting website tests. WiderFunnel is the first Canadian company to meet our admissions requirements, and they share our overall vision for the power of testing and performance marketing.”
WiderFunnel Marketing was founded by Chris Goward. By giving clients the ability to simultaneously test hundreds of versions of their site, WiderFunnel increases their ROI from online advertising investments while lowering their customer acquisition and online transaction costs.
“Knowing how to change layouts, offers and copy for the better makes all the difference,” says Goward. “We get meaningful test results faster because we know what is worth testing first. As a result, clients get more conversions sooner than if they had decided to guess what’s worth testing themselves and tried to do it with their limited in house resources. We’ve seen conversion improvements ranging from 10% to 242% on a single conversion experiment!”
