While SEO and PPC remain the key cogs that spin the wheel of brand awareness for organisations across the web, what happens when your business website achieves visibility in Google’s search index, and has subsequent visits but few conversions?
For years, designers and digital marketers have been left scratching their heads and perhaps wondering which way to turn in their bid to increase website conversions; often making decisions based on assumptions and opinion rather than fact.
Back in 2015, conversion rate optimisation (CRO) became the #buzzword of the digital industry. Now, many working within the digital industry are starting to understand the true value of CRO not just as a concept, but as a practice. The typical 3-step process is as follows:
Without following these steps, those holding senior positions such as directors, experienced designers or senior digital marketers risk taking it upon themselves to make rash website changes based on their seniority, experience and opinion. Whilst experience is invaluable to every organisation, CRO helps to develop informed “insight”. Experience coupled with insight can prove to be an effective mix, which can lead towards positive outcomes if a more measured approach is taken.
Key attributes to look for in a CRO agency:
Client-side web developers need to be alerted in advance of any CRO campaign running, and should be prepared to make website changes in good time to help prevent bottlenecks in the testing stages.
Look for an agency willing to listen to concerns around why your website isn’t converting, and one which is prepared to be proactive in walking you and your colleagues through findings.
Finally, full transparency is key from both parties, as this will help to support an effective working relationship and should lead to effective outcomes with a welcome boost in website conversions. Bingo.
