"If content is king, then conversion is queen." -- John Munsell, CEO Bizzuka
In the fall of 2008, Bizzuka CEO John Munsell shared that quote - which was his own creation - during a conference where he served as a panelist in a session on the topic of web content management. "Conversion is Queen."
It was tweeted by one person. Since then, it has been tweeted and retweeted hundreds of thousands of times and in a number of languages, because conversion really is queen.
Not only that, but it has been used in hundreds of blog posts, and even appeared as a quote in a press release from another web marketing company.
In 2009, the quote was included in a list of other great quotes along with the likes of Albert Einstein and William Shakespeare. I was considered one of the top 20 social media quotes of the all time and has made similar lists as well. After all, our business is all about driving conversions, and content may be king, but conversions are queen when it comes to increasing sales.
With all the talk about content marketing and funnels, it's no wonder that this quote is so popular. Good content that drives traffic to a website is not enough; it must convert. And that's what makes this quote so special.
Re-read the first paragraph. Notice I said that, during the conference, it was tweeted by one person. Yet, since that time it has literally encircled the globe over and over again. A tweet heard around the world was all it took to show how important conversions are, more so than content.
This lends credence to the fact that social media has great power to syndicate a message both quickly and, in John's case, exponentially. (The funny thing is, it was an off-the-cuff remark, not planned as part of his presentation.) But, this quote has proved its point. Conversion really is queen, since this quote has provided many conversions on its own.
