Dan Siroker

Dan Siroker

"I'm the co-founder & CEO of Optimizely. The original inspiration for Optimizely came from my experience as the director of analytics on the Obama 2008 campaign. Optimizely is the product I wish we had back then to make it easy for anyone to do A/B testing. Four years later, not only did Obama 2012 and Mitt Romney use our product extensively in the last election cycle but so have over 7,000 other customers including Starbucks, CNN, and Crate&Barrel.


A/B testing, our first product, is now the #1 most-adopted website optimization platform in the world. But A/B testing is just the beginning. Our vision is to enable the world to turn data into action. We’ve got a long journey ahead of us and we’re just getting started.


In my role I do a lot of public speaking evangelizing the benefits of A/B testing. I've guest lectured at Stanford and Berkeley business schools and keynoted at SXSW, SES, Conversion Conference, TheNextWeb, and dozens of others. If you are interested in having me speak at your event please contact andrea@optimizely.com


I have also been lucky enough to appear on Bloomberg, Wall Street Journal, New York Times and Wired to talk about the awesomeness of A/B testing and the future of website optimization. Apparently I was born at the right place and the right time since Forbes decided to recognize me just months before I turned 30 as one of the Top 30 under 30 in Technology."

The master of the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him, he is always doing both. —Lao Tzu


When I am not at ion you can find me shuttling my two kids around from here to there, knocking back some wine with my hubby, spinning in some dark room at Flywheel indoor cycling, or enjoying the amazing Florida outdoors."

Expanding on the success of seOverflow, Belasco founded ConversionIQ in 2009 with business partner Keith Hagen. ConversionIQ offers website conversion optimization services to companies directly and via their Web agencies.

Joanna Wiebe

"I fell into copywriting. Just totally tumbled in, head over feet. I didn’t like the word “copywriter” when I first started – so I went by “creative writer”. Big mistake. That must’ve set me back a good 3 years. Now I know that COPY is awesome, and copywriters are the best-kept secret in the sales and marketing world.


Has worked at: Intuit, Conversion Rate Experts, agencies


Has been doing this since: 2004


Feels the world needs more: Good news stories to normalize good behavior. And varieties of pie – it feels like we’ve capped out early on that one.


Has a warped sense of: Everything. But, in particular, I always assume things are going to be wicked-expensive. And I’m totally bad at forecasting how long something will take.


Would have been: A dermatologist. Or an architect. But the lure of a life of words was just too strong.


Favorite copywriters: Gene Schwartz and John Caples – and all the great unknowns doing kick-a$$ stuff.


Loves to optimize: Catalogue pages! Sooo much opportunity on the average catalogue page."

"I grew up believing I would optimize websites. Thank God the Internet was invented or I’d still be selling mattresses.

I'm a seasoned product marketing leader who consistently helps businesses and teams exceed their goals. With REAL expert-level knowledge and experience in SaaS, product marketing, content marketing, copywriting, customer success, conversion rate optimization, and user research, I'm uniquely positioned to teach and execute in almost every area of the software business.
