A well-designed and even high ranking website is good, but if it’s not converting your visitors into customers then it’s not good enough, which is where a conversion rate optimisation agency can help.
What is conversion optimisation rate (CR0)? It’s basically the process of analysing the on-site elements of your website and making enhancements to increase your conversion rates, whether the conversion is buying your products, booking your services, filling out a form or downloading an app.
We must warn you, there is no time for complacency. In a fast changing online environment, conversion optimisation is vital and should be absolutely key to your business strategy. Why? Because it means you will get more customers without having to spend a penny on advertising.
An increase in conversion rate can have a massive impact on your profits plus if your competitors aren’t already working with a conversion rate optimisation agency, chances are they will be soon, so it’s wise to get the edge now so don’t have to play catch up down the line.
Conversion rate experts will look at the way your website is currently performing, analyse the behaviour of your users, developing a plan of action based around your specific business needs, focusing on areas such as testing, analysing the customer journey, simplifying the process, gathering feedback and analysing cart abandonment.
The goals of conversion rate optimisation, or CRO, is not to manipulate your website visitors into converting. It’s to make the journey easier for visitors who are already engaged and interested in what you’re offering. This means conversion optimisation is not just about increasing your conversions, it’s also about ensuring a better user experience by simplifying the process, making navigation uncluttered and the process fast and efficient, altogether making your website a better place to be.
To give you an example, if a customer has already searched for ‘white converse’ and they’ve landed on your product page, there’s a high chance they want to purchase the product ‘now,’ so making the journey, cleaner, simpler and more efficient is a guaranteed way to increase conversion. There’s also a big chance the happy shopper will come back for future purchases and even recommend you to other potential customers.
Online customer behaviour is becoming increasingly sophisticated. The customer journey -from landing on your website, researching your brand and buying your products - can include any number of routes, so it is absolutely vital businesses understand the journeys that lead to conversion.
If your website is dependent upon free traffic from Google, here’s how conversion rate optimisation can help:
- You’ll make more money out of your existing rankings
- Your customers will stay with you longer
- Your increase in conversions will mean you can afford to advertise using different media, such as PPC, affiliate marketing or offline
