Conversion Rate Optimisation CRO

The first step in Conversion Rate Optimisation is in defining the conversion goals. This can be a button, a webform, a visited page or even a like on Facebook or Instagram.

Conversion rate optimisation (CRO) is the process of looking at user behaviour.  Then using this data to modify certain elements of a webpage, a business can increase the chances that site visitors will “convert” into one of your pre-defined goals, whether this is a signup, a like or a product purchase.

Tips on running CRO

  • Making sure that changes are based upon statistical data and not opinion
  • Ensuring your SEO copy matches the target pages goals
  • Keep the tests simple and focus on the largest traffic volume
  • Running too many tests and pop-ups at the same time on the same page
  • Understanding the importance of basic design elements
  • Undermining the importance of Call-to-Action ‘hero’ buttons
  • Not creating a sense of urgency
  • Not establishing business trustworthiness upfront
  • Complicating conversion funnels – KISS (Keep it simple)
