How Marketers Can Optimize Testing & Reap the Rewards
You’ve been doom-scrolling through your social media feed far too often lately and somewhere along the way, between silently refereeing flat- and hollow-earth arguments and signing petitions to bring back Knight Rider, you come across an obnoxiously immature joke that has you in stitches. Later, in a quiet moment before a meeting, your manager overhears you tell the joke — he cracks up. You’re instantly his new favorite. Filled with confidence, you try it on your CEO a couple days later… and she fires you on the spot. You tested it and it worked; how could everything go so wrong? Today’s guest, Tim Parkin, Presiden t at Parkin Consulting, says this is a trap most marketers fall into when it comes to testing — without understanding why something works, they fail to gain the deeper insights from testing that can truly transform their business.

Do You Have a Competitive Edge?
You don’t know when it started, but you’re pretty sure you’ve reached a point in your business where you’ve stopped growing. Much like that ill-fated folk duo you started in college, you’re going through the motions, but you’re stuck running on fumes (and not the kind your audience reeks of).

That’s why today I’m speaking with Jose Palomino, Founder and CEO of Value Prop Interactive and host of The Revenue Throughput Podcast, to find out how to hone the competitive edge you need to cut through your rivals and win consistently.
