Announcing the Website Workout Winners

Wednesday, January 14, 2009 1/14/2009 09:16:00 AM

In June we announced the Google Website Workout contest. We invited businesses who wanted to improve their website to tell us why their site needed to be "pumped up." We selected four winners and had them work with our consultants to improve their conversion rates using Website Optimizer. Along the way, we filmed their progress, and today we're pleased to announce the winners and share their experiences.

For each winner, we've put together a video highlighting the winner's business, the challenges they were facing, and how they used Website Optimizer to improve their site.

You can take a look at how one of our winners, Colonial Candle, increased sales by 20% by testing a few simple changes on their site



You can see all the winners at the contest site. You'll find out Extra Space Storage booked more units, Outrigger Hotels & Resorts increased reservations, and Team In Training focused their redesign efforts.

Have they not gone back to the before design though ? ???

Visited the website and only see the before design and not the after.

Good info but get rid of the background music as it is very distracting. It adds the strong flavor that you've got an interfering radio station running into what you're trying to listen to

Good info!!

I'm curious if it could help an artist like me?
Thank you

We are still testing the two designs so both are running, you must have been in the group that got directed to the "before". Katie Fernands, Colonialcandle.com
