Customers can be hesitant to sign up for your services if they perceive that there’s too much risk involved. However, using terms like “risk-free” can create more problems than it solves. Customers don’t always consciously worry about risk. Using this terminology makes them realize that they should be considering it as a factor, which works against you rather than for you. Avoiding the acknowledgement of risk is a no-brainer, especially at lower price points. Joining me today to share many tips and insights is the remarkable Justin Rondeau. He’s here to dive into the depths of conversion rate optimization with an emphasis on testing. After listening to this conversation, you’ll be inspired and empowered to use A/B tests or split tests to help optimize your business.
