KamalChandran: Sabina, the management wants to have two different time zone for both the accounts!!
KamalChandran: I mean adwords and analytics, Is there any other way, I am asking you once again...
Sabina: Kamal, if your Analytics account is linked to an AdWords account we cannot have different time zones.
KamalChandran: Is it possible to de-link the accounts and then change the time zones
Sabina: Yes, you can do that.
Sabina: However, if you link the accounts again then it will change according your AdWords account.
KamalChandran: what would be the drawback then..........
KamalChandran: I think the adwords data would not be reported correctly if I have two different time zones.......for eg:- conversion etc
KamalChandran: Am I right?
Sabina: Yes.
KamalChandran: what would you suggest, is it better to run both the accounts at the same time zone?
Sabina: If you link the accounts then the time zones will be the same.

As the testing industry grows and matures, more testers will likely:

But before the testing industry can really prove its worth, more testers will need to know  why  they’re testing -- before they start running tests. To answer “why", you must first formulate a sound hypothesis. Your hypothesis needs to get to the core of what you’re trying to achieve through testing. Testers who start with solid hypotheses have better odds of running valid tests with significant results. Valid tests can lead to big conversion gains. Big conversion gains can equate to big revenue increases. And, of course, big revenue increases mean your company’s doing well. The rest is a no-brainer. If you’re helping your company profit, you might just get that bonus, after all!

Measuring conversion rates on “thank you” pages provides?

Harnessing the power of ‘thank you’ is important. It’s also often overlooked.  Testers tend to get so wrapped up generating leads and sales, they forget to test the receipt / thank you page. But testing this last step in the sales funnel offers a golden opportunity. That’s because roughly 40% of traffic landing on your thank you page will convert again for something else.  Take advantage of this high conversion rate by testing ways to bring your customers back – again and again. When testing thank  you pages, make sure to think about your audience. Find ways to cater to both first-time and return visitors. Both have different needs. Consider testing different offers for each group to keep them coming back. Test  your thank you emails, too. Did you know new customer thank you emails have the highest open rate of any message you’ll ever send? That’s an insane amount of attention you’ll never get from your customers again. Test ways to extend conversions in your thank you emails.
