Conversion Rate Optimisation: How to Get More Sales

darth-side

One of the most frustrating aspects of being a CRO Analyst is watching people do it wrong. Like, really wrong.

There’s No Excuse for Getting it Wrong

We (Richard and I) were discussing a scenario where we’d carried out an in depth analysis on a client’s site to address why people were not converting on their site. We understood their customer’s objections, we’d surveyed them, interviewed them in person, completed user testing, carried out a full IB/IS analysis and built a huge evidence base. The basis of our worked showed we needed to address 3 key issues on the site.

After the meeting, their CEO announced we should be testing a different navigational layout. What difference might that make? Nothing. Why? Because the change would not address any of the reasons people don’t buy on the site. We explained, and won.

SEOGadget have concocted our own special remedy to improve conversion rates, through hard work and continuous refinement we’ve developed a process to grow website conversion. It works, we love it and so do our clients.

We believe there are 2 paths to Conversion Rate Optimisation. When we see companies fail it’s because they adopt random testing, incorporating guesswork, “best practice” changes most problematically avoiding testing. We call this the bad path.

To make that super clear, and because we *love* infographics, we made this! Catch the full detailed write-up at SEOMoz:
