Some readers of Digital Marketing in 2017 will be quite technical in their understanding of areas such as SEO, coding and website design. Others may be more creative and have less of a ‘technical brain’.

Whatever your degree of familiarity may be with coding and the like, the fact of the matter is that great digital performance – in part – relies on a heathy site structure. And the next couple of chapters focus on helping you to achieve that.

Digital Marketing in 2017

So if you don’t have too many scientific bones in your body, bear with me. But also try to stick with it, in the knowledge that a lot of digital marketers view these areas as being essential to success in 2017 and beyond. Don’t ignore something just because it doesn’t capture your imagination as much.

4) Use eye tracking and split-testing before the build stage – Joshua Strawczynski

Joshua Strawczynski from J Marketing emphasises the importance of thinking about optimising conversion rates before a site design is finalised.

Josh says: “We’re really focusing on advertising effectiveness – and we’re doing this having invested heavily in eye tracking software.

“Whether it is landing pages, banner design or even the effectiveness of content, we are running it through eye tracking, which has traditionally been very expensive. We’ve been able to make that and A/B testing very affordable.

“Before it ever goes to the build stage, [your user experience] has to be absolutely bang on.”

    Hi David
    This content is not mobile- friendly, I’m afraid I couldn’t get to any links to engage with it. Rather disappointing.
    Also, the URLS in the email were not hyperlinked, I had to copy and paste.

      Hi Mima

      The only element of the content that wasn’t mobile-friendly was the Facebook video, as their native embed functionality doesn’t support mobile. However, I’ve found a workaround to fix that, so the good news is that all of the content – including the Facebook video- is now mobile friendly.

      Regarding the links, what email service provider do you use? And are you referring tot he email from the Udemy course or the direct email from me?
