Your website may be great in getting visitors to your site, but maybe not all these visitors are behaving like you’d had hoped; they’re not completing their purchases or signing up for your product… they’re not converting. Conversion Rate Optimisation (or CRO for short) is the process of improving your website to increase the number of people that do convert
Conversion Rate Optimisation Overview
It starts with us identifying where your website is costing you money and discover where there’s gains to be made. Using the data, we’ll then craft solutions and ideas for the problems and opportunities we discovered. Then we’ll run A/B tests to figure out which of the solutions and ideas work best to improve your conversion rate and ultimately sky rocket your Website ROI.
Our CRO Process
So what does our Conversion Rate Optimisation service entail? Well, it’s a 5 step process that’s repeated to continuously improve your website. To have a look at the stages in a bit more detail, click on the sections below to expand
Data underpins everything we do, its importance cannot be understated. To make good decisions requires not only a vast range of data points to be collected but also the confidence in the accuracy of this data. Only then can issues be identified and opportunities unearthed correctly
In this stage we’ll ensure your analytics data is capturing as much data as possible and ensure its accuracy. There are hundreds of checks and tracking possibilities with business benefits that will go beyond our testing usage.
With accurate analytics in place we’ll now move into the research and data gathering phase. During this phase, we have two primary goals; to understand your visitors and to understand your website.
Knowing who your visitors are (what they want, how they behave, what shared habits do they have, what can trigger responses, etc.) and understanding your website (what works, what doesn’t work, what visitors engage with, what pages cause visitor to leave your site, etc.) will be foundation for all our optimisation work
This phase involves 6 key research areas:
As you can imagine, there’s a lot of data to analyse, but this is where the fun is. We’ll comb through the 6 research areas, paying attention to all the details. The good and the bad. Turning the data into useful insights.
What we’re ultimately trying to understand is what matters most to visitors.
Once this stage is complete we’ll have a list of facts about your website and its visitors. These facts will be showing us areas of underperformance with potential to be improved alongside with areas of opportunity that could be maximised to reap the rewards
So we now know a lot about your visitors and website, we have a list of problems and challenges on you website. These issues and areas need fixing. Based upon a blend of best practice, innovation and experience we’ll devise solutions for problems.
We’ll pinpoint where your website is leaking money and discover areas of opportunity, create the ideas to fix the leaks and exploit the opportunities, run extensive testing to find out the best possible solution for your site… all done for you
After a test is complete we’ll provide an analysis of the results with actionable insight to be made based upon the results
After one test is complete we’ll move straight into the next test. With the previous tests results feeding into future tests leading to better results and continuous optimisation.
Who is this service for?
Firstly you also need a proven business; if people don’t want what you’re selling no Conversion Rate Optimisation miracle will be able to fix that.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re looking to make more sales from your online shop, more sign ups for your online product or more visitors calling your offices to book your services. All these businesses are suitable for the research however ideally you’ll have 5,000+ visitors per month – however we can work with less, the process may take a little longer but still very profitable for you
What will you actually get?
We’ll start with our research phases (stages 1, 2, and 3 above) which will typically take 2 – 5 weeks, depending on traffic.
Once we have our test ideas and prioritised them in stage 4, we’ll then move into stage 5. For which we’ll require a minimum 6 month engagement – this is because its hard to achieve breakthrough results in single tests so we want a good chance to show you the potential.
After 6 months we’ll go on to a rolling retainer for optimisation until we both agree that the site is optimised as much as possible with no further conversion rate optimisation potential.
