Here are my speech notes:

How many of you have a website or online business
Even if you don’t and you should, I’m sure you’ve seen many people making a lot of money online.
Have you ever wondered how they do it?
Secret or magic formula?

They are working hard and optimizing their online businesses.
If you do not tweak and change your website continuously, your probably leaving a lot of money on the table.
I’m here to tell you you can do it too.

Today I am going to talk you about optimization.
Continuously improving your online business to make more profit.

3 Step you can do create an optimization plan
1. Discover – Understand Customers and Problems
2. Create – Product to Solve Problem
3. Grow – Scale what works

Examples of very successful people online are
Pat Flynn
75k / month
website, blog and affiliates
Smart Passive Income

John Lee Dumas
134K p/ month
products, membership sites and Podcast
Entrepreneur on Fire

There are many different kinds of optimization.
SEO – Search Engine Optimization – improving search engine rankings to drive more traffic
CRO – Conversion Rate Optimization – improving leads and sales
Web Analytics, Advertising and Social Media

Optimizing all those tactics is what I call Marketing Optimization.

Implementing a Marketing Optimization Process will all you to…
1. Predict The Future
2. Compound Results

moving goods from producer to consumer
the process or technique of promoting, selling, and distributing a product or service

Process of making something as effective as possible

Neil Patel, Quick Sprout – Top entrepreneur under the age of 30 by President Obama
Optimization is all about tweaking. How can you squeeze more people through the online sales funnel. For example, you have 100 window shoppers but only one buyer. That would be a 1% conversion rate. If you can convince 10 more people to buy? That’s like 10x the revenue.

Doing stuff better
whatever you are doing right now. If you are trying to sell stuff, optimization will help you do it better.
Optimization is all about moving the needle.

JOHN MCINTYRE, Email marketing expert
Good ol’ Albert said, “The most powerful force in the universe is compound improvements,”

Albert Einstein
“Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it … he who doesn’t … pays it.”

Understand your customer, earn there trust and money, if not you will not get ROI

Life is all optimization.
Measuring where you are and trying new things, your probably not growing.
