What Makes Conversion Optimization So Important?
To a lot of web designers and online marketing teams, “conversion optimization” is one of those extra services that are occasionally offered or mentioned. At our company, they are a centerpiece of what we do.
Why is it so important? Because conversion optimization is what you need to make your site more and more profitable over time. Finding ways to turn higher percentages of visitors into buyers – even at a 10th of a percentage at a time – can easily double or triple the return on investment you see from your business website in the long run.
Here are some of the parts of the conversion optimization process:
Finding your best customers and most powerful marketing messages. The more you know about your customers, the more effectively you can market to them. That’s why one of the most important things we do is help our clients to figure out who their best customers are, along with what sorts of offers and marketing messages they respond to.
Identifying trends in your industry. What have your competitors been up to? By keeping an eye on them, you can get a better sense of what programs are likely to be successful for you, as well as spot new gaps and opportunities that other companies might not be filling.
Revising content and messages. No matter how hard you and your creative team try, the business website you launch is never going to be perfect. Add in the fact that your company will probably change its products, services, or focus at least slightly in the future, and you can see why making ongoing tweaks is important to maximizing your business website’s profitability.
Tracking conversions at different stage of the process. Usually, a business website isn’t really “successful” or “unsuccessful.” Instead, parts of the site work very well, while others aren’t as effective as they could be. By keeping a close eye on the metrics – and seeing where potential customers come in and out of your business website – you can maximize conversions at every step of the way.
Launching your business website is exciting, but it’s only the first step in a long process. If you want to get the most out of your time and investment, then work with us to enhance your conversion rate optimization and get bigger returns in the future.
