What’s particularly exciting about training with Sigma is that they are all about performance. Eliciting maximum online performance..

Because they understand user experience, understand testing and understand how best to measure performance every aspect of a web presence can be tested. Including the copy. I like that a lot. When we write copy for clients we want to know that it’s delivering. And if it’s not, we need to know it’s not so we can do something about it.

You too hopefully.
