CRO for Content Marketers

Content marketing is the soil in which inbound marketing grows. It is a beacon for the search engines and the source of valuable, lead-generating content. And developing content is expensive. We can only justify creating more content if we can increase the revenue generated for each content visitor. Enter Conversion Rate Optimization, or CRO.
