    Leading your website visitors to the Thank You page is what Conversion Optimization is about. I find and remove the barriers and friction points between when visitors find your site and either give up or reach your thank you message. Simple things like changing a button color or increasing the size of your headline can help, but they often bring small gains. Increasing your conversion rate in significant amounts through optimization means taking a scientific and research based approach to helping your visitors accomplish their goals. Determining the correct success metrics is the first step in making sure we are on the right path for increasing your conversion rate. This process begins with discovering your customer’s goals and tracking their success rate in achieving those goals. Why Analyze? Optimizing your conversion rate creates a compounding increase on the percentage of visitors deciding to trade their money for your solution. Getting a 5% lift in conversions from a single test gives you that same 5% for several months to come. Personally I’m disappointed if all I am able to achieve is a 5% lift for the month. An e-commerce client saw a 33% lift in revenue from a new navigation structured around the customer’s device type instead of the clients product collections. A test that took 12 days to run grew revenue by 33%! How does it work? In order to see consistent and sustainable gains in your conversions testing for a minimum of six months is recommended. The first three months gives us enough time to really learn about your visitors, who they are, what they need from your business, and how we can best provide it. Six months allows for a culture of testing to really bloom, to dial in the messaging and the flow from one page to the next. Sure, the first few tests we conduct will see some terrific boosts, but those are the low hanging fruit: -Friction points we find in your user experience. Once removed they grease the path to conversion. -Messaging that speaks to you, but not your visitor. It’s hard to find these hurdles in your messaging because you know what you meant when you wrote it. However, your potential customer may not know what you meant. -Dead-ends in your site where users have no clear path to solving their problem. How many pages do you leave the customer with only the option of going “Back” in the browser or clicking the main navigation? Making them start over from square one is not a clear path to conversion. Providing a strong call-to-action makes “all roads lead to Rome.” Not all testing produces gains in your conversions. Sometimes a test will cause a dip in revenue or signups. We learn from those tests too. Then we move on and test again based on what we’ve learned. Continual testing beyond those first three months is often where the deep learning and real competitive advantages are obtained. Ready to get started? Not so fast. Can you commit to making decisions based on data? You must be sure you are willing to do what it takes to cure your customer’s pain. People have sensitive B.S. detectors, and big claims without delivery will not work. I grew up in Missouri, the Show-Me state, where you better back up anything you might brag about with actions. I want clients who will be wild and unbelievable success stories. I like bragging too, but with results to back it up. I guarantee your investment in me will product twice my cost. If after our first two months I haven’t delivered, I’ll provide a full refund. I've never been asked for a refund, or even worried about whether a client was getting enough Return On Investment to question it. Who am I? I’m Brian Schmitt. I'm originally from Missouri and currently in West Palm Beach, Florida. I began learning about Conversion Optimization from Jeffrey and Bryan Eisenberg in 2001 when they taught a Wizards of Web course in Austin, Texas. I’ve been learning and applying the principles of Conversion Optimization and persuasion ever since. What is it going to cost? It depends on several factors. Perhaps the best thing for us to do is begin a conversation.

    I create plans and models for entrepreneurs and startups. My documents help them pitch to investors, banks, and potential business partners. Many of my clients are founders, organizations and companies seeking to create business and marketing plans, business models, full pitch decks or online presentations. Among my past clients I have financial institutions, food distribution companies, entertainment start-ups, media websites and green energy companies, plus many nonprofit organizations. My best clients are the ones with new and disruptive ideas. In my process I ask many questions, do a lot of research, propose new ideas, explore diverse channel of distribution, provide a lot of graphics, create models using a canvas business model system, run numbers and create financial projections. At the end, I do everything I can to create useful and powerful documents for my clients. "OFF-LINE" I have my own business consulting firm working from New York City, (EST) but available around the clock. I have an MPA from Cornell University (USA) and I speak English and Spanish. ----- MY PHILOSOPHY on writing business plan is simple: every business plan is unique and every client deserves a professional and timely service. I do not over promise, I do what I said I will do. Simple. Some business and marketing plans are designed to get a loan from a bank, others to get potential investors excited about a project. Most of the time is a tool to raise money, but all the time should be an instrument to guide your future. In my work I get inspiration from big angel and venture capitalist firms, such as the giant investor Sequoia Capital; that has invested in companies like Apple, Google, YouTube, PayPal, Instagram, Yahoo!, Atari, Kayak, Zappos, and LinkedIn. I always suggest my potential clients to read what they are asking from people that want to get funds from them: www.sequoiacap.com/ideas They are not asking for a 100-page business plan. They believe that the best founders are clear thinkers. ----- MY PROCESS is also simple. I start with your ideas and your initial data and work until you are completely satisfied. I want to invite you to see my process of writing business plans here: http://goo.gl/ugB0l1 Before you hire me I give you a very clear plan of what I will do for you, step by step, with a feasible timetable. Again, I do not over-promise, I do what I said I will do. By hours, this is a breakdown of my typical development process: 1) Business Consulting (2-6 hours) 2) Market (Research and Plan) (4 to 8 hours) 3) Financials (4 to 10 hours) - 3 to 5 years of Sales, Profit & Loss, Cash Flow and Balance Sheet forecasts. 4) Writing (8 to 16 hours) - following the format of California VC firm Sequoia Capital and adding charts, maps, graphics, etc., to clarify your business pitch. 5) Online presentation (4 to 8 hours) - on prezi.com. My tools are 1)Internet for research, 2) Skype for communication, 3) ASANA -the project management tool created by one of the founders of Facebook- to organize my work, 4) Excel to plot all financial projections, 5) PowerPoint to design pitch decks, and 6) a few RedBulls to work overnight and on time. Everything will start with a Skype chat and we go from there. ----- TERMS I work around your budget. I know that startups are not cash cows. Because every plan is unique, I like to discuss final payment terms during the interview process. My original bid is a guide for the client, and is based, usually, on a week of work (about 40 hours). Depending on the nature, format and stage of your business project, my work could take about a week and in some cases several weeks. My hourly rate is $65, and usually will take me 20 to 40 hours of work to develop a comprehensive plan. If you hire me as a fixed rate contract, I operate on a 3-payment basis. The first 20% is due at project start, a second payment of 40% at an agreed upon middle milestone, and the final 40% upon completion of the project. ------- SAMPLES Looking for samples of my work? Here is a list of some of my past projects: IT service start-up in Germany, data center in Uganda, online food service platform in Brazil, crowdfunding site in California, niche social network in the UK, nonprofit in Mozambique, real estate fund in Taiwan, TV production company in Los Angeles, agro-business in Nigeria, entertainment company in Holland, publishing service in Spain, beverage company in the UK, entrepreneurial education center in Dubai, pharmaceutical start up in Lebanon, electric company in Saudi Arabia, and several iOS native app start-up in Australia, Ukraine, Puerto Rico and USA. If you request a connection via Linkedin you can see past clients’ recommendations here: www.linkedin.com/in/josebello ----- FINAL NOTE: If you do not hire me, let me wish you good luck in your future business. Keep it up and dream big. Jose  less

    "Solid structure...one of the best put together AdWords accounts I have ever seen....." Account Strategist, Google AdWords Team (comment in reference to an AdWords Account I manage). The team of Robert X Willis and David Williams has a combined 30 experience in search engine marketing with a focus on AdWords and Bing PPC. We have been doing online marketing since 1998. We have extensive hands-on experience in managing PPC campaigns across Google, Yahoo, MSN and various other search platforms. PPC is an ongoing process. It is not just having someone set up your account and you thinking you can sit back and let it run by itself. PPC doesn't work that way - in fact, that way it doesn't work at all. PPC requires constant "gardening", constant testing and tweaking, constant monitoring to make it work. That's what we do. We specialize in Google AdWords. We build and manage campaigns with an emphasis on Chain of Relevancy, Quality Score and CTR. We work to lower overall costs and increase conversions. Both Robert and David hold Bachelor Degrees in Media Study. We are particularly interested in working with companies that are just beginning to test the PPC marketing waters and are seeking a jump start. Please note, we do not accept Fixed Price assignments.  less
