Conversion Optimisation

In simple terms, conversion rate optimization (CRO) or conversion optimization is the process of finding out why your website visitors are not taking the desired action(s) and fixing those reasons, or issues, to achieve a higher conversion rate.

Online conversion rate optimization was born out of the need of e-commerce marketers to improve their website's performance.

As competition grows on the web, website analysis tools and an awareness of website usability has prompted internet marketers to produce measurables for their tactics and improve their website's user experience.Today many tools enabled internet marketers to experiment with website design and content variations to determine which layouts, copy text, offers, and images perform best.

Today optimization and conversion are key aspects of many digital marketing campaigns and now generally considered to be crucial to a business’s overall digital marketing strategy.Conversion rate optimization shares many principles with direct response – a marketing approach that emphasizes tracking, testing, and on-going improvement. Conversion rate optimization, practice A/B split-testing, response tracking, and audience testing to optimize mail, radio, and print campaigns.

Conversion rate optimization seeks to increase the percentage of website visitors that take a specific action (often submitting a web form, making a purchase, signing up for a trial, etc.) by methodically testing alternate versions of a page or process. In doing so, businesses are able to generate more leads or sales without investing more money on website traffic, hence increasing their marketing return on investment and overall profitability. A conversion rate is defined as the percentage of visitors who complete a goal, as set by the site owner. Some test methods, such as split testing or A/B testing, enable one to monitor which headlines, copy, images, social proof elements, and content help convert visitors into customers.

Before you start your optimization program, have an analytics engine in place. Analytics is what tells you why visitors aren’t converting. Having analytics integrated with your testing engine is important for post-test analysis and learning. Know your conversion funnel flow.

At Marketing Search we recommend you always take the time to think critically about what you plan to do up-front and be very clear about your goals and outcomes before approaching any provider.

By doing this you will avoid many of those unexpected and un-welcomed bumps and obstacles that arise down the track which inevitably cause cost blow outs and time delays in bringing your project to market.
