Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO)

More and more, businesses are making CRO a core part of their digital marketing strategy.

Perhaps your site is doing well, bringing in traffic from successful paid search, SEO and social media efforts? However, when traffic arrives on site, they are not “converting”. That is, completing the goal you wanted them to - be it a form submission, purchase, telephone call, download or anything else you might want to track.

CRO uses a “test and learn” approach, where specialists hypothesize about the effects small changes to a website might have. The next stage is to implement these changes and record user behavior over time. Finally, the statistical significance of changes in user behavior are investigated, both quantitatively and qualitatively.

Over time, this allows many small changes to cumulatively have a large impact on your customers’ user-experience, leading to a greater number of conversions from your existing traffic.

We can help you identify and eradicate the pain points of a conversion funnel, enabling countless potential customers to experience your product or service, from landing page to checkout.

Unlock data-led insights and understand the customer journey like never before, with invaluable intelligence from our digital marketing team.

Case Study - Increasing Mobile Conversion Rates by 48%​

The Challenge - Improve overall ecommerce conversion rate, with a main focus on mobile ecommerce conversion rate.

Our Approach - After performing an in-depth conversion rate analysis, our Conversion Rate Optimization specialists identified the pain points for customers and what were the main barriers to visitors completing their purchases. The next step was creating a series of data-driven recommendations. Once our recommendations were approved, we started implementing them gradually via our proactive development service.

The Results - Within just a few months since the changes were implemented, we started seeing an uplift in conversion rates. In May 2018, overall ecommerce conversion rate increased by 39% compared to the previous year – from 4.95% to 6.86% for the whole website, with mobile ecommerce conversion rate rising by 48% YoY to 6.39%.

Case Study - Transforming Visitors to Converters

The challenge - Getting the ecommerce conversion rate above the 1% threshold and improving mobile performance.

Our Approach - Our CRO team first had to truly understand the way people were interacting with the website and what an improved customer journey would look like. The conversion rate analysis conducted reviewed the entire website, following a top to bottom approach and resulted in a report filled with recommendations in order of priority in terms of the impact. Once the recommendations were approved, our development team implemented them across a two-month period between July and August 2017.

The Results - Overall ecommerce conversion rate jumped after the changes were implemented, and maintained significantly improved levels afterwards, above the 1% mark for overall traffic and mobile visits, and closer to 2% for desktop.
