When You're Done, You'll Have DigitalMarketer's Proven 8-Step Optimization Process For Turning Existing Traffic Into More Leads And More Sales, And You'll Truly Become A...
Conversion Rate Optimization Expert
(...and you'll know when and HOW to do this for any business)
Unfortunately, most marketers just don't get it!
When it comes to testing & optimizing pages and offers, they either don't test at all...
...ONLY test when they see low conversions...
...or only test what other people tell them they're supposed to test.
That type of "I hope this helps" optimization just won't cut it anymore! Not only is it not improving conversions, it's almost certainly costing you money!
If you actually want to generate real and meaningful increases in your leads and sales, then you need to do more.
You need a PROVEN process in place to tell you exactly what (and when) to test!
But how do you build a "process" that systematically converts mediocre offers into winners and turns existing winners into breakout cash cows...
...one that will work for any business, any website, any offer?
Fortunately, that's exactly what you're about to learn...
FACT: Businesses NEED Optimization Experts
(...Who Actually Know What They're Doing)
All businesses need a way to optimize the traffic they're already getting to generate more leads and more sales.
They need a proven and repeatable process to identify exactly where they should focus optimization efforts to truly "move the needle" in their business.
I'm not going to sell you on the importance of split testing and conversion rate optimization.
If you're here, you know how important even the slightest increase in conversions can mean to a business.
In other words, you know that increasing your conversion rate means more leads and more sales, all from the traffic that you're already getting.
So that's why businesses need Conversion Rate Optimization Experts.
There's just one problem: Most so-called "conversion experts" don't know what they're doing...
That's where YOU come in.
As a Certified Conversion Rate Optimization Specialist, you are uniquely qualified to help brands convert their existing traffic into even more leads and sales.
More specifically, in this master class, you'll learn:
- The critical pages that need immediate optimization (and these probably aren't your worst performing pages)...
- The key metrics that actually increase the bottom line (get this wrong and you'll waste your time and money on useless testing)...
- The 3 crucial factors for prioritizing your optimization campaigns (we'll show you how to rank them)...
- How to use Case Studies to improve optimization (and which type work the best)...
- Our proven formula for developing a rock solid hypothesis (this will give valuable insights regardless of your campaign's outcome)...
- The 3 most effective tools for collecting user data (and how to use them, step-by-step)...
- How to qualify split tests (and the one crucial question most optimizers forget to ask when starting)...
- The three outcomes of any split test (and why most marketers ignore one of these outcomes, which is a huge mistake)...
- Know when and how to schedule tests (get this wrong and your data will be skewed)...
- Know how to create a report to show your findings so that the test gets implemented appropriately, so YOU get the credit you so richly deserve (we're giving you the exact same report template we use every day)
- Get a crash course in other valuable optimization methods that "move the needle" (including personalization, low traffic testing techniques, landing page optimization), and more...
In short, Certified Conversion Rate Optimization Specialists (a.k.a. "Conversion Masters") are able to not only deliver more leads and customers... they have a proven and repeatable process to deliver those increased leads and customers with the traffic they're are already getting!
If you're interested in becoming such a "Conversion Master," then I have one question for you...
Are You A "Doer"...or Just a "Talker?"
(or...Why You Might Want To Get Certified)
Let's face it: Marketing experts are a dime a dozen.
So how do you separate those who "walk the talk" from the ones who merely...
That's the problem!
And at DigitalMarketer, it was our problem, too. You see, we don't just teach marketing best practices, we actually DO MARKETING for businesses that we ACTUALLY OWN.
We aren't researchers. We aren't journalists.
We're business owners running companies (both online and offline) in B2B and B2C markets selling everything from cosmetics to camping equipment to industrial water filters and everything in-between.
In other words: WE ACTUALLY DO THIS STUFF...
...so we know how hard it is to find truly skilled people who know what they're talking about.
And that's why we created the "Optimization & Testing Mastery" course and certification.
We built this certification to train our own team members, but in the spirit of "open sourcing" our business (which is what DigitalMarketer is all about) we're now making this certification and training available to the world.
In short, we're making it available to YOU...
What You'll Learn In This Course
8-Step Optimization Cycle
Learn each step of the process for optimizing the conversion rate for your website or even a specific page. Once you understand how to intentionally increase the number of conversions, you will be able to truly "move the needle" in your business.
When to Split Test
Discover when a split test is necessary or not using simple math. Once you decipher if you have enough conversions per variant, per day, you will be able to reach a reliable conclusion and avoid wasted time or resources.
3 (More) Optimization Tactics
Besides split-testing, there are three other, often simpler and more lucrative, conversion rate optimization tactics. Learn how to set up user surveys, session recordings and heatmaps to track traffic on your website and certain pages.
Identify Critical Pages
Identify which pages on your website should be immediately optimized for increased conversion rates. You'll be shocked to see that these pages aren't what you initially expect, but we'll show you how and why these specific pages are most effective.

Who Should Get Certified
Grow in your career, and get everyone else in your company on the same page, and speaking the same language
There's nothing harder than managing a team where everyone speaks a different language. So let us fix that for you.
Directors & VPs
Give your managers and employees the training they need, so you can stay focused on strategy and execution.
When your team can truly deliver the goods, you can truly serve your clients...and increase billable hours.
Founders & CEOs
Running a business is hard enough without also having to worry about sales and marketing, so let us worry about it, instead.
Why Should You Get Certified?
If you're an individual...
...this certification will set you apart from the pack.
Unlike everyone else who simply calls themselves a "conversion expert," you're going to outshine the rest, because while everyone else is grasping at ideas, and trying random things (the majority of which won't work) you're applying a proven process that gets results, every time.
And you'll have the certificate and the badge to prove it, from a source that businesses trust.
More importantly, it will make you a better marketer.
Why? Because you're receiving the exact same training you would receive as an employee at DigitalMarketer. (And without tooting our horn too much, we're pretty good at this stuff!)
And we held nothing back.
These are the same systems and strategies our internal team uses to generate traffic, and then convert that traffic into sales, taught by our Conversion Optimization Manager (the person in charge of all things conversion at DigitalMarketer), Justin Rondeau.
So, if you want to:
- Enhance your career (or start a new one)
- Learn the latest and greatest tactics (that actually work)
- Expand your skill set, distance yourself from the competition, and jump to a higher pay grade...
...this course and certification is for you.
If you're a business owner...
...maybe you don't need the certification.
But what about your team? Do you know for a fact that they're up to speed on all the latest and greatest ecommerce marketing strategies?
If you're not sure, or if you just want them to receive the exact same training the team at DM receives, then get them certified!
They'll love the fact that you're investing in them, and you'll love the fact that they're performing at the highest level possible for your company.
Also, there's no rule that you have to sit for the test. If the training is more important to you than the certification, then just take the training and look at the test as an optional extra. (But if I were you I'd take it anyway just to make sure you're fully grasping all the concepts.)
Oh yeah, and if you're an agency or other marketing professional, then you already know how important certifications are to distancing yourself from the competition. And who knows? It might even help you claim higher fees for the work you're already doing.
Either way, if you expect the best for your company, then this course and certification is for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: "How will this certificate help me?"
A: It depends on who you are...
If you're a business owner, this certification is a great way to learn how to optimize the traffic you're already getting for yourself. It's also a great way to train and certify members of your own team to ensure that they're up to speed on the latest trends and best practices.
If you're an agency, this certification is a tangible way to show that you are a Conversion Rate Optimization Specialist, which could help you attract and retain better, higher-paying clients.
If you're a student, this certificate can set you apart from other graduates who merely have a business or marketing degree, but specialized skills that employers today are desperately seeking.
If you're an employee or marketing professional, this certificate can make you more valuable to your company, which is the surest way to get that raise or promotion you likely already deserve (but don't have a tangible reason to request).
Q: "How valuable is this certification?"
A: The certification itself is highly valuable if you need to set yourself apart from the competition. What's far more valuable than any badge or certificate, however, is the actual knowledge you're going to receive when you take this class and pass all the tests. You will know Optimization & Testing. I'll say that again: YOU WILL KNOW OPTIMIZATION & TESTING.
Q: "What if I fail? Am I allowed to retake the test?"
A: Yes, you make retake the test up to 2 times (for a total of 3 attempts). After 3 failed attempts, you will be required to retake the class (which you can do for free) and all the module quizzes prior to attempting the final exam again.
Q: "How long do I have to complete the class and take the test once I am enrolled?"
A: You can move at your own pace! We understand that life happens, and that just because you enroll today that doesn't mean you'll be able to finish (or even start) the class this week. And that's ok! Take as long as you like. We aren't going anywhere, and neither is this certification.
Q: "Why is the badge green?"
A: Green is the color of money, and when you know how to generate more leads and more sales from the traffic you already have through Optimization & Testing, you will be generating more money.
Q: "How long does it take to finish the course and receive my certification?"
A: This class is 7 hours of video training, so if you are working at it full-time you could technically complete the class and take all the tests in one day (although this is not recommended). To fully understand and apply the materials, you should allow 3 - 7 days if you are working full-time, and 14 - 21 days if you taking the class part-time.
Q: "Am I guaranteed to get certified if I take the class?"
A: No. A certification that can simply be purchased isn't worth the paper it's printed on. That's why our courses are challenging. If we're going to allow you to display a DigitalMarketer badge, you better believe you're going to have to earn it.
Q: "I don't care about the certification...can I just audit the class?"
A: Right now the cost for the class is $495. Ordinarily the sit fee for the certification exam is $500, but currently we have waved that fee and are allowing students to take the exam up to 3 times for free. This will change in the future, at which time we may allow non-certification candidates to audit our classes at a discounted rate, but the price will never be lower than $495.
Q: "How difficult is the test?"
A: You'll find that the test is "satisfyingly difficult." By that I mean, it's difficult enough that you need to actually know the materials, but it isn't tricky or difficult just for the sake of being difficult. That said, to preserve the exclusivity and importance of this designation, we have made the tests challenging and the questions do pertain to our proprietary methodologies, so you shouldn't expect to be able to pass the test just because you have taken other optimization & testing trainings or courses in the past. This training is different, and the exams will reflect those differences.
Q: "Are scholarships available?"
A: At this time no scholarships are available. Fortunately we have priced our classes so that they are affordable to all, especially compared to similar certification classes.

DigitalMarketer Is Different
Yes, you can find other trainings and certifications that cover similar topics, but a DigitalMarketer certification is unique because it's built and taught by real marketers who actually sell their own products and services online.
In other words, we aren't journalists or "researchers." We're in-the-trenches doers who despise untested theory and believe that the best way to learn something is to roll up your sleeves and get your hands a little dirty. If that sounds appealing, then welcome! You've found your home.
