Listen Now Here are some of the things you'll discover in this show: Emotion in Advertising Talia's Story In 2007, Talia got her start in conversion optimization by mistake. At a social media agency, she worked with big local brands that focused on likes, engagement, and comments. When she asked these brands about their goals for leads and sales, they rarely knew the answer. To help increase conversions, she changed the Facebook ads and landing pages, guessing what would work. When Talia learned that an entire industry is devoted to optimizing ads, landing pages, websites, and funnels, she began finding out more about it. The more she learned, the more she loved it, which led to her starting a conversion optimization agency in 2010.

Or they might think of conversion optimization as changing a button or headline, or adding a few more bullets. Talia says customer-centric conversion optimization is focused on understanding people on a deeper level than demographic details like gender, location, profession, income, devices they use, etc. Instead, you focus on the real challenges and pains that people coming to your website want to solve. Common marketing tactics don't help customers understand how your product helps them. To visualize this, you're not focused on the customer when you change the color of a button or the way you explain your product's features and pricing. What does help is understanding customers' emotions, pains,
