Max the Conversionator wants to remind you to sign up for the Free Conversion Idea.

Last Friday we had a blog on The Battle of the Forms –  Long vs. Short Forms Which is Right For Your Business  so I thought it would be interesting to feature Bryan Eisenberg’s 10 point checklist for optimizing forms in this issue.

Also of interest this week were articles on content marketing, measuring the impact of your blog and getting customer testimonials.

Each week Bryan Eisenberg raises a different conversion issue in his blog. Last week he asked his readers to review and comment on an enrollment form.

Read the answers he got in  Conversion Optimization 101: Optimnizing Complex Web Forms (w/10 Point Checklist) .  Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom to get his 10 points to consider in form design.
