Hi, I am Alex Harris. I have been doing conversion optimization and conversion focused web design since 2000 using my freelance business named AlexDesigns. My day job is Conversion Optimization Director at a large public agency. So I have experience building my own business and also working for an enterprise focused agency that is publicly traded. When I look back, I realized I used the Happy Progress to get me here in life. It hasn't been easy and it still isn't easy but... progress equals happiness.
While I am very proud of my career growth, the most important thing to me is really helping people increase their results, professionally and personally.
One of the main services I offer is website reviews for immediate conversion improvements. Here are over 100 testimonials from previous people I've help with website reviews, landing page optimization and eCommerce conversion optimization.

Alex did a masterful job of answering my questions and was well prepared with PDF that we discussed together. He gave me a clear direction to take my business to the next level and I will certainly be calling him again when I have implemented his suggestions.
Apr 20, 2015
I can easily see myself selling $20-30,000 more dollars because of this expert insight. Alex drops a knowledge & experience bomb on you - It’s awesome. He did a ton of research ahead of time and even put together a PDF with nearly 100 improvements. Moves very fast, which is great because there’s no wasted time. Would I talk with him again? Hell yes! Don't miss out!
Apr 18, 2015
Alex did an exceptional amount of up-front research prior to our call and had fantastic recommendations for improving our conversion rate. He really blew me away with how well he understood our objectives, our market, and our challenges - and then applied that understanding to a list of top priorities we can implement.
Mar 31, 2015
Alex gave me exactly what I needed: clear direction on where to take my shopify website next. I had a decent layout, but Alex pointed out several critical things that will improve sales and trust in my customers. Beyond that, he gave me a roadmap for where to take things beyond the cosmetic changes. Not only do I recommend him, I'll continue to use his advice as my business grows.
Mar 24, 2015
I did a 20 minute call with Alex and he gave a list of recommended changes i should test. All of which are pretty easy changes and after i'm done testing them all i should have more conversions which is the end goal.
Also, the majority of the recommendations where more than the typical "you should test the button color".
Mar 18, 2015
Alex was great. He came to the meeting prepared with actionable insights specific to our use-case. Definitely knows his stuff when it comes to conversion rate optimization. Recommend!
Mar 18, 2015
I gave Alex some "zinger" questions that he probably doesn't get from most clients and he answered them like a champ! It's nice to speak with someone who has experience and can give such actionable advice.
Feb 12, 2015
This is my second time working with Alex because the first time produced such incredible results! He is brilliant, efficient, and does his homework to give you the most relevant information for YOUR business. He's more than worth what he charges.

Alex definitely knows his stuff when it comes to landing pages. Awesome advice and will deff use him again!
Dec 5, 2014
My call with Alex was great. He obviously cares about trying to provide value, as he had spent some time to review our site and come up with a PDF of examples that he could talk me through during the call. He made several very helpful suggestions about how we can go about optimising our site for conversions, and this was great, as now we can get the insights first hand ourselves, rather than paying to have a consultant do this for us. We will certainly seek more advice from Alex
Dec 3, 2014
Alex did great job, he was very efficient, and gave lots of great advice!
Dec 1, 2014

My call with Alex left me with alot of work to do! Alex was fully prepared for our call from sending my questions beforehand.

5 stars, helpful and to the point.

This guy knows his stuff. He had a treasure trove of ideas for me that were immediately helpful. I was actually a blast talking to him, I could have picked his brain all night. Additionally, he offered some personal introductions and further ideas to follow up on. If you need help with conversion optimization - make sure you connect with Alex. The call will pay for itself immediately.

Great call, critiqued my landing page, website, and gave me good ideas to work on. It was a good start, would definitely have another call again. However I asked about testing framework, but didn't get a good answer on testing and optimization, will ask that question again next time. Also the feedback was a bit chaotic and not too structured, threw a lot of ideas, but they weren't prioritized. That is ok as I can sit down and organize my notes again and prioritize.

Alex's advice was exactly what we were looking for: actionable and direct.

He gave us a ton of great feedback, ideas, and tools to implement into our workflow immediately. Highly recommended!Evan Shoemaker

Jan 27, 2014
I was having trouble with conversion rates on the landing pages for my online marketing campaign....I could get traffic there, but visitors were not converting. I had worked with smaller, overseas contractors in the past on landing page design, but their results were inadequate and unimpressive. After I hired Alex, I was immediately impressed by the level of detail and thought he gave to visitor behavior on the site. Rather than just "put something up that looks pretty", like other designers do, Alex thoroughly evaluated the affect of various landing page designs on visitor behavior. He benchmarked with other similar sites and best practices. The results were outstanding. After 3 months the conversion rate on my landing page increased by 5x!! The resulting revenue more than offset the cost for hiring Alex. I was extremely pleased and will hire Alex again.
Oct 18, 2013
Alex is a fantastic person to work with. He takes the time to understand what it is we are trying to accomplish and then works with us towards achieving those goals.
His experience with web design has proven invaluable in recent times when it came to designing specific landing pages and his turn around time were always excellent.
I'd continue to work with him in the future and recommend his services to anyone.
Oct 18, 2013
Alex was easy to work with, extremely knowledgeable and delivered results on time. I would not hesitate to recommend Alex!
Oct 18, 2013
Alex takes into account the entire solution prior to diving in to begin solving the problem and/or tacking the issue. He has a great sense for the business side of things -- always looking to create efficient solutions that have the ability to maximize profitability. The combination of "creativity with profitability" is rare -- Alex possesses this unique trait.
Oct 18, 2013
Alex is one of the few out there who really "get" marketing and design... and as a result he is great at both designing and optimizing websites!
Oct 18, 2013
Alex helped us out with short notice to get our web project back on the right track. Great work and highly recommended.
Oct 18, 2013
Franklin University hired Alex in 2009 to redesign the institutional website at www.franklin.edu. Alex's deep understanding of standards compliant site architecture, user interface optimization, SEO-centric design and coding, and his ability to intuitively grasp institutional business goals and their implications for the design of the public-facing site were unparalleled amongst the list of candidates for the contract. Needless to say, our expectations were high - and Alex delivered on all of them, often above and beyond reasonable expectation. He delivers no matter the circumstance, and his output is exceptional in every way. In fact, our first experience with Alex and the positive results that came from it led us to hire him again to redesign the portal for our customized learning management system that all Franklin University students use on a daily basis. He did an excellent job with that project as well.
We would hire Alex again without any hesitation.
He does exceptional work.
Oct 17, 2013
I've worked with Alex for 5 years at eDiets.com. Alex has a great eye for design and a very strong grasp of web marketing and conversion optimization. Alex used A/B Testing very early on to help drive up conversion in our sales funnel. Alex is also very knowledgable in eCommerce and would be a great addition to any team.
If you are looking for consulting work you should HIRE him!
Oct 16, 2013
If you're looking for someone to design direct response creative, landing pages or emails - you'll find few as talented and as personable as Alex Harris. I've worked with him on more than one occasion and every time he's delivered quality work, on time and within budget. I'd gladly recommend him to anyone and look forward to working with him again.
Oct 15, 2013
Alex is far more than a great web designer. He thoroughly understands and applies the principles of maximizing conversions to the process. I've hired Alex to do landing pages as well as entire sites. The design has always been top notch and so have the bottom line results.
Oct 14, 2013
Alex provided us with a great website and helped us understand more about landing page design.
Alex is able to exceed expectations with very little input. The final result was excellent.
I hired Alex and his firm, Alex Designs, to redesign our corporate websites (www.fast-dry.com and www.10-S.com). We chose Alex and Alex Designs because he seemed to grasp our issues best and was also an expert on our Netsuite ERP platform. We were extremely happy with the results, including the design, layout and production of the new sites. Alex was open to feedback and suggestions for improvement throughout the process. We saw an immediate increase in the number and quality of online leads for our construction company and online sales for our distribution business. I turned to Alex again last year for some search engine optimization (SEO) work and were equally pleased with the results. Our rankings immediately improved and we saw an increase in the number of hits, leads and sales. I would definitely recommend Alex for web design or SEO projects, particularly if you are a NetSuite client.
We have relied upon Alex numerous times for landing page consulting and design, and have received excellent results each time. With Alex, the page not only looks good...they convert. With others we have used there is usually a trade off.
Alex is very creative and a great designer.
Oct 18, 2013
I've worked with Alex on multiple projects over the years, and each time was completely delighted with the work produced and its results. Not only have we re-hired him many times, but we've also recommended Alex to colleagues who also engaged him for design work. When I have a new project and the issue of conceptually correct design that meets the project's needs without domineering its vision, I immediately contact Alex for availability.
Alex listened thoroughly to our objectives and then created an effective landing page that has been very effective at delivering the kinds of results we expected. I would, and I have recommended Alex to others seeking expertise in this space.
Oct 2, 2013
We are very particular about who is going to work on our website, Alex not only helped redesign our corporate website and blog but also has worked with many of our clients helping them get great results.

In addition to an incomparable eye for web design and landing pages Alex also brings to the table knowledge of online acquisition and marketing. It makes things easier for everyone when you are working with someone who "gets it"!
Alex published our monthly enewsletter and maintains our corporate website on an outsourced basis. He has produced timely, quality work and also adds not only a creative flair, but a business savvy to our projects.

Alex knows his stuff - happy to recommend him to any online firm looking to improve their online results.
