The MarketingSherpa/MarketingExperiments Optimization Summit 2012 will be held in Denver, June 11-14. To get our B2B marketers ready for the event, we decided to feature five of the best testing and optimization case studies, how-to articles and charts from our research and reporting across MarketingSherpa’s newsletter beats.

#1: Moving beyond a single test
