Incoherence: The greatest failure in most testing programs and how to avoid it

Mind reading is not part of a marketer’s job description, but mind mapping should be.

Why? Because building a mental roadmap of the thinking process during the buyer’s journey is crucial to achieving maximum conversion, and this can only be accomplished through a rigorous testing program. There are no shortcuts.

You must generate more than one hypothesis from an idea and then determine which one/s should be tested.

Lastly, Flint gives a tip on avoiding incoherence in your testing efforts: Why using “and” in your hypothesis can weaken its effectiveness.
