The relatively recent emergence and development of Conversion Rate Optimisation (CRO) originated from the massive growth of data-driven marketing where marketers use quantitative insights and trends to make key marketing decisions. In this article, we hear from Abbie Senior who started her career as an Analytics and Conversion Executive at a large network agency and progressed through the ranks to become a CRO Manager at Manchester United Football Club. She explains why businesses should have a CRO department and what qualities great CRO people have.
