CRO agencies will often tell you that what they do is a dark art.

In reality, it’s conversion rate optimisation is all about laying out your digital stall in a way to drives more of your website visitors to make an action. As Wikipedia puts it’s  “a system for increasing the percentage of visitors to a website that convert into customers”.

On an eCommerce site a conversion could be a visitor to making a purchase and for a B2B, conversion is more likely to be requesting a quote.

What are the best CRO techniques?

If you’re looking to improve your CRO we suggest starting with your main pages: the homepage, landing pages, product pages, and your blog.

Your homepage for example is often the main landing page for a website. You’re less likely to convert on this page but first impressions matter. Make it easy for your visitors to find the pages they want using image buttons and chatbots on platforms such as Whatsapp to create engagement.

Landing pages are all about creating action. These are often pages we spend a lot of time and money on through PPC campaigns and SEO. The key is to keep the visitor from being distracted by too many CTA options (call to action).

If a website visitor reaches the product page then they’re more likely to make a purchase. Aspects to consider include making sure there’s enough information for the customer to make a decision. Consider discounting or offers to run at certain times of the week/year, times when you’re less likely to make a sale.

Blog posts are often the most shared aspect of a website; they’re fresh and up-to-date with the latest information. While you may choose not to push the hard sell, CTAs such as newsletter subscriptions are a great way to optimise your conversion rate.

How to improve a websites CRO

CRO should be a crucial part of what every digital marketing agency strives to achieve. At StoryThreads converting leads into customers is at the top of our strategic priorities. If we simply increased your traffic then how would you justify your ROI? You couldn’t.
