  • Tracy Schorn: How To Build A Popular Blog and Master WordPress Even If You’re A Liberal Arts Major

    WordCamp D.C. 2017Speaker: Tracy Schorn

    November 10, 2017 — I’ll tell you what worked for me, and offer some trial-tested advice of what NOT to do.

    Topics include:
    – SEO — you don’t buy it, you earn it. How to build it organically using your theme and plug-ins.
    – Finding your niche (i.e., the world does not need another mommy blog). How to distinguish yourself in a world clogged with content.
    – Slaying trolls. Popularity comes at a price. How to moderate your site with help from the Discussion settings.
    – Plug-ins — What happens when they don’t place nicely together? How many do you really need anyway?
    – How much traffic do I need before I can monetize this thing?
    – Reader engagement — how to lure timid commentators to your site
    – What I Really Want Is a Book Deal — can a blog make that happen? (No, your writing makes that happen, but your platform can help a lot.)
    – Social media, you don’t need to join every single thing, just master one or two and let WordPress help you.
    – Graphics, you need them — make your own, or buy it. Never steal it. Always attribute.

  • Theo van der Zee: Conversie Optimalisatie voor Websites met Weinig Verkeer

    WordCamp Nijmegen 2017Speaker: Theo van der Zee

    October 14, 2017 — Je kunt nu twee kanten op (welke met real-life voorbeelden en bijpassende tools in de presentatie zullen worden uitgewerkt):

    1) Niet geadviseerd: zorgen dat je toch kunt gaan A/B testen. Denk hierbij bijvoorbeeld aan het inzetten van SEA of SEO om je aantal conversies per maand te verhogen. Ook kun je denken aan een lagere significantie grens, varianten achter elkaar (in plaats van naast elkaar) neerzetten, grote veranderingen per keer proberen, een focus op micro conversies, etc.

    2) Wel geadviseerd: jezelf eerst richten op methodes die ook bij minder verkeer werken. Dit zijn bijvoorbeeld user testing, expert reviews en surveys. Ook je web analytics data of gegevens voortkomende uit mouse tracking of formulier analyse kunnen hier erg inzichtelijk zijn. Hoewel het verzamelen van deze bevindingen niet per se voldoet aan de wetenschappelijke normen, brengen ze vaak wel kritieke pijnpunten aan het licht. Zeker ook door meerdere van deze onderzoekstechnieken te combineren, kun je een redelijk stabiele bron van verbeteringen samenstellen. Overigens is het zo dat ook websites met veel verkeer sowieso vanuit gedegen vooronderzoek hun variaties zou moeten bepalen, waardoor deze methodes bruikbaar blijven wanneer het aantal conversies is gegroeid.
