The robots are taking over. They’re going to be better than us, and then steal our jobs, and eventually turn on us and conquer the world. That’s the kind of hyperbolic language you’re probably hearing everywhere today. But some of it is true.
Will the skills you’re learning today be obsolete by tomorrow? Is there a point to learning new things if artificial intelligence (AI) is going to do it better? Is marketing going to become completely automated, and no longer require the human touch?
Discover insider secrets on how to successfully build a high-performing growth team. How can you leverage CXL Institute, Kolbe tests, and other online resources to genuinely impact your bottom line? Which skills truly matter for fast growth, and which are the nice-to-haves? Keep reading »

Artificial Intelligence is powerful and will open doors we don’t even know exist at the moment. But there are some steps you can take today to ensure that you are making the most of this new capability and are not left behind.

There’s nothing that always works and pretty much nothing that never works either. Websites are highly contextual.
That being said, there are tests that tend to have a very high win rate. These are the test ideas that, while they don’t work 100% of the time, work more often than not.
Naturally, everything depends on the specific implementation — a good idea implemented poorly will not yield any results.
The following 20 testing ideas come from our own client-based research done over the years. Keep reading »
