What exactly is UXO and what is CRO — should marketers even care if they’re similar or not?
User Experience Optimization (UXO) has, for far too long, played second fiddle to Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO). Although they are both important players in any digital strategy, UXO is essential for increasing conversations and improving usability. Yes, you want your leads to move down your funnel quickly. But there’s nothing worse for your conversions than a user struggling to perform critical actions on your website.
