€15k Conversion Rate Optimisation, Free, No Questions Asked

Posted in: Conversion Optimisation by Richard Hearne on April 6, 2009
Internet Marketing Ireland

I had written a long-winded post to explain all this, but decided the message should work just as well with bullets:

  • 5 websites will each receive a free Conversion Rate Optimisation campaign worth €3,000;
  • Red Cardinal will work with each site owner to plan, install, implement and report all tests;
  • Red Cardinal will cover the costs of design and development, and pay all fees for a professional MVT software suite;
  • In return all I ask is that each campaign can be used as a case-study for a new venture Red Cardinal is launching;
  • The offer is open to all Irish websites.

I’ve spoken to a good few people privately about this, and have already received some good interest. Now I’d like to go wider to reach people/sites I don’t know about but might benefit from this offer. I’ll be supplying 2 of my own developers for this, and working with Jason Roe and James Larkin for design inspiration.

If you’d like your site to be considered for this please get in touch with me. If you think this would be useful to others please help spread the message if you can.

UPDATE – I’ve posted some more info on conversion rate testing in a new post: Introduction to conversion rate testing

UPDATE 2 – Closing date for applications is Friday April 17.

  15. EXCELLENT idea for your own Self Promotion and the turnovers of the Eventual lucky 5. If the old adage thet “One good turn deserves Another” is True… then I will match Your Conversion offer with one of My own. Lets try to make this a 2 way street.

  16. Hi Richard,
    I have a few sites in mind that might be really useful for this? What stages do the sites have to be at? Do you favour one CMS over another or one language over another for this project?

  22. Morning Richard, is it too late to be considered? If not – would love to be.
    Cheers, Andrew

  25. Hi Richard,

    Only seeing this now, not sure if I’m too late but I would also like ot be involved.


    Comment by Derek Organ — April 14, 2009 @ 4:43 pm

  26. Richard, we exchanged emails a few weeks back – you say Irish only websites – can I throw a .co.uk one into the hat so it can be used as a comparison/tracking to the others – cheeky I know but worth a try. Paul

    Comment by Paul Roach — April 14, 2009 @ 4:51 pm

  27. @Paul Roach – sorry, but given that I’ll only be offering this to 5 sites I’m afraid I cant give a spot to a non-Irish site.

    @Everyone else – you should have received a questionnaire from me by now, and I need these returned by Friday April 17 please.

    Please contact me if you have any questions.


    Comment by Richard Hearne — April 15, 2009 @ 10:30 am

  28. Hi Richard,

    I’d also like to be considered (if it’s not too late). Our site is a newly launched app so not sure if it’s too young for you project.
