Webinar: How to Prioritize & Maximize Your Testing

Testing is one of the most important things we as marketers do. But how do you decide WHAT to test and WHEN? And once you have the data, NOW WHAT? Join CCAH and AARP Foundations as they walk you through the best way to approach testing across channels. This session will cover everything from how to decide if and when you need to test, thinking strategically about short term vs. long term evaluation, determining if you should take a random sample of a stratified sample, performing a risk assessment, and the biggest question of all IS IT EVER OK NOT TO TEST?

This interactive session will combine both testing theory and real-life examples of how organizations ut these theories into action. Over the course of 50 minutes we’ll cover strategies for effective test development, execution, and most importantly – how to read and maximize your testing results – leaving everyone with something to take back to their own programs – no matter how big or small!

Attendees will learn:

  • Strategies for prioritizing tests that will have the greatest impact
  • Tips for designing the right type of tests to get clear and actionable results
  • Recommendations to minimize the risk associated with testing in your program
  • Tips for testing evaluation to maximize results and learning across your program
