At the end of the day yesterday, I tried not to get my hopes up as I looked at my phone.
All day long I had tried to NOT think about the fact that the Rose City Yarn Crawl prizes would be announced at some time today. I tried NOT to check my personal email. ( I might have peeked once or twice) but, locked in my cupboard, my phone was off limits until the end of the day.
After the kids left I undid the lock. A couple of years ago I broke the lock on the door, so now, I secure it with a fancy combination of an old choke collar and my locker padlock from high school. I got it in 1978 and I still know the combo. That’s an accomplishment of sorts, I thought as I slid the chain from the handles. It always makes such a nice satisfactory sound. I bet most people don’t have the padlock, let alone remember the combo.
I pulled the phone from my bag. No messages announcing I was a winner. And none came as I drove home or after I walked through the front door. I tried not to feel disappointed. I fed Lucy and myself. I checked my email and before too long, I was fine.
I have the yarn I bought on the yarn crawl ( plus a whole lot more in my stash).
I have a super cute basset hound.
I have my high school padlock and still remember the combination – and that is a whole different kind of winning.
Congrats on still knowing those numbers! I have a combination lock for the locker at swim class that I have to look at each time right before I lock up my things. Not sure if it’s due to the infrequency of my attendance or the age of my mind! Sorry you didn’t win the yarn. I love how you used the power of three to console yourself.
It’s no secret that in today’s digital age, a successful online presence is key to a thriving business. You may have the best product or service in the world, but if you can’t get people to find you, buy from you, or use your product or service, you’re sunk. That’s where conversion rate optimization (CRO) comes in.
CRO is all about getting more out of your existing website traffic by increasing conversions – whether that means getting more people to sign up for your email list, buy your product, or simply click through to another page on your site. In this blog post, we’ll discuss how to implement a successful CRO strategy for your business.
There are a few things to keep in mind when implementing a CRO strategy. First, you need to have a clear understanding of your current conversion rate. This will give you a baseline to measure your progress against as you implement changes. Second, be sure to set realistic goals for your CRO efforts.
If you’re currently converting at a rate of 0.05%, it’s probably not realistic to expect to increase that tenfold overnight. Finally, always test changes before rolling them out site-wide. Making sweeping changes without testing can result in decreased conversions and frustration from your users.
