    An exceptionally good piece of creative/practical work about Online Testing, August 2, 2008

    This review is from: Always Be Testing: The Complete Guide to Google Website Optimizer (Paperback)

    When I first saw that this book was coming to light I had mixed feelings. On one hand, I was hunger for more testing knowledge, both theoretical and practical. On the other hand, I am always apprehensive when books talk about tools. However, the book impressed me as a comprehensive guide to Online Testing. And when I read the following (p.18), I was sure the book is what the market needs:

    “The important thing to keep in mind is that the Google Website Optimizer is a tool. (…)It cannot do your thinking for you. It cannot plan your tests. It cannot produce the creative. It cannot interpret your results beyond demonstrating numerical significance and confidence. These things are up to you. If you want the tests you run on the Google Website Optimizer to be meaningful and to provide the intelligence you need to make well informed marketing decisions, then this is the book you need.”

    The authors cover very thoroughly the Why, the What, and the How of Online Testing. All you need to know from the value of testing to how should you get started. The examples are very enriching and illustrate the power of testing and the bottom line: Testing = $$$.

    Part I covers the Why; the authors delve on the power of testing and provide some amazing examples of it (including a masterpiece on Amazon’s testing efforts). In addition they walk us through the Google Website Optimizer and provide powerful tips on the tool.

    Part II covers the What and the How; the chapters are structured in a very actionable way: “Questions to ask”, “Exercises”, “What to test”, and “Apply this to your site”. As you read you can implement the tips instantly. A few examples of what to test are: usability, look & feel, searchability, product presentation, up-sell/cross-sell……

    Part III covers some technical aspects of testing. The authors provide interesting information about Google website Optimizer scripts, statistical tests, and other special issues.

    *The book is well structured, insightful and action oriented: exactly as online marketing should be! I warmly recommend it.*

    Modern Day Scientific Advertising – a Contemporary Classic For Today’s Marketer, September 6, 2008
    By 

    This review is from: Always Be Testing: The Complete Guide to Google Website Optimizer (Paperback)

    As someone who has spent some four decades in direct response advertising, I know the value of testing. Like all successful ad people and many successful marketers, I have read and re-read the classic, “Scientific Advertising” by the great Claude Hopkins. It’s a classic — even to this day. Of course, it’s quite dated.

    Fast forward to “Always Be Testing” by Bryan Eisenberg and John Quarto-vonTivadar with Lisa T. Davis. This book brings Hopkin’s important work into the modern age and again puts testing to the forefront, where it belongs. And no one is better qualified to write the book than Eisenberg.

    The authors explain Google Web site Optimizer in detail. They show how to use it and how to perform your Web site tests. They discuss the A/B test and the multivariable test. But they go beyond that. They tell you what to test and how to test.

    Moreover, they go beyond Google Web site Optimizer and discuss other things to test. All of this information will help you to get far more conversions. With all we have at our fingertips, not testing is just inexcusable.

    In my opinion, this book is a modern day classic and is as valuable to our time as Hopkin’s book was to his. I hope all my clients read this book and absorb it. I hope they put it into practice.

    I’ve had many experiences when I didn’t like the copy I wrote and yet it worked exceedingly well when it went live or, if direct mail, was sent out. I’ve also had clients who didn’t like the copy I wrote for them but I’d tell them to test it. When they did, it succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.

    So testing is key to success in marketing. This book is a must-read if you intend to be successful in your online marketing. I highly recommend it to you.

    Don’t start unless you are going to optimize your site while reading the book, December 29, 2009
    By 
    Mark Ruzomberka “Mark” (Philadelphia, PA) –

    This review is from: Always Be Testing: The Complete Guide to Google Website Optimizer (Paperback)

    I have to admit I got stuck in the middle of this book. I would not start this book unless you are actively optimizing your website, otherwise as it gets too technical for light reading. However, if you are doing an optimization of your site this book will be very valuable to you. I got bogged down with Part I, and advise you to skim it and go directly to Part II.

    I’m going to skip past the sermon about how marketing and tech don’t get along, because most of us have heard it before, so you can probably afford to skip it here as well. Secondly, a lot of Part I seemed like I would be able to figure it out just by using Google Online Optimizer, but you may enjoy the reference here. Once you get through the dozens of pages of the marketing vs. tech debate you will find the bit about Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs interesting so make sure you don’t skip it. Finally, if you learn like I do from examples/case studies, you will find dozens of them in Part II of the book. Many of them even have great screen shots, great for visual learners like me.
