Written by: , Jan. 18, 2017

An Interview with Talia Wolf, Conversion Optimization Expert,

Many people claim to be experts, but those are often just sell-proclaimed descriptions. Talia Wolf’s bio claims that she is a Conversion Optimization Expert – but that assertion is backed up by people in the industry.  In 2015, she was rated in an annual survey as one of the top 25 most influential conversion rate optimization experts. Just the other day I noticed that she was also included in a 2016 list of top ecommerce experts.  After speaking with Talia on the phone for a while, it became clear to me that those titles are well-deserved. She not only possesses great expertise, but she is able to clearly share her expertise and knowledge with others.
