Optimise Your Online Business For Conversions 0.01% At A Time
We recently came across a a well-known brand’s website, where we knew the owner company had a high advertising budget. They were advising their customers not to use Safari, and instead use Chrome for a better experience when visitors clicked through to their site! Can you imagine our response?
We were really shocked, considering how much traffic and potential customers they would have been losing. In today’s competitive climate, you don’t want to risk missing a single chance of conversion, let alone who knows how large a portion of users, who may only use a particular web browser. More often than not, this is the case for most people. We want to minimise complication and disruption wherever we can, especially when settling down for some relaxing online browsing.
Most businesses spend a lot of money on advertising, intending to drive more traffic to their websites, to generate leads and increased sales. However, what too many organisations, including the mainstay of our clients, often ignore is making sure that their website or app is optimised for conversions. It’s technical, so off-putting for managers focussed on day to day operations.
Conversion Rate Is The Key To Your Business Success
This is a massive mistake. Conversion rate is key to business success. It is measured as a percentage of visitors who complete a desired action on your website. This could be subscribing to your monthly newsletter, submitting a form, or purchasing a product – the number one goal of any online businesses.
Conversion rates are highly dependent on your industry, niche, country, targeted demographics and especially conversion goal of course. To give you an idea of how this works, the global conversion rate of online shoppers between 2018 to 2020 averaged 2.17%, though this varies as low as 0.6%, to as high as 5.5% for some businesses niches.
As advertising competition increases and the cost of customer acquisition goes up, it is becoming ever more important to get the most from your traffic. We tell our clients to: “focus on the bottom of your funnel and make sure your website or app is optimised for conversions.” Performing ongoing tests is a must; maintenance of your online assets is essential, as unexpected issues can arise in the wider context of your online presence. As you regularly check your online assets in a systematic way, you need to be just as well organised in incorporating your findings into improving your website and marketing funnels.
Consistency and systematisation of conversion optimisation leads to your conversion rates steadily pushing higher and higher. This takes effort and time on your part, but you cannot afford not to invest resources in your service to your customers in key communications and sales channels.
Conversion Rate Optimisation To Push Your Success Rates Ever Higher
We know you are continuously looking to improve on your campaign conversion rates, to get more ROI from your advertising and marketing efforts. We understand that monitoring the vast array of marketing metrics can get unwieldy, unnecessarily complex and time consuming for your teams. For those of you with experienced marketing teams, we think they will already be familiar with the myriad of conversion rate optimisation (CRO) metrics, but we hope that we break it down as a refresher for the experts reading, or to get more insight into this seemingly overwhelming aspect of your marketing operations if your teams are still new to analysis and reporting in this invaluable aspect of assessing the value of your marketing investment.
As conversion rate consultants, AdsRunner’s analysts remove the guesswork in CRO, by conducting A/B testing on campaigns – also known as split testing or Multivariate Testing (MVT). We put our assumptions and hypotheses into tests on simultaneously run advertising campaigns. We scrutinise the performance of comparative variables, such as: web page elements, aspects of your web presence, ad headlines, calls-to-action in your copy across channels, formatting and more. We will compare different assets against one another, with a view to you getting the most from your marketing budget, by building on combinations that perform best for your particular business objectives.
We use session recording tools to generate heatmaps; these visualise users’ actions and their interactions with important elements of your online contents, throughout your website’s landing pages. When you outsource your marketing analysis to AdsRunner marketing specialists, our teams then incorporate findings into enhancing your landing pages to improve your campaign and content conversion rates.
Landing pages, (sometimes referred to as ‘sales pages’), are essentially designed for where your prospects get to take action on their research. They are customer journey end points, intended to focus the customer’s mind on the purchase they are already primed to make. Hence, it’s important to optimise every element on these sales oriented pages, with the desired action optimised for.
We evaluate your landing pages carefully, will A/B test particular elements and make sure structure and content are for the best they can be for maximising conversion rates. With our recommendations, you will see the difference when your customers land on your different sales pages after clicking on an associated ad. Watch how our edits and additions achieve higher purchasing rates.
It might seem slightly crazy, that for every second of delay in loading your landing page, your conversions can fall by up to 20%. Let that difference sink in for a moment. You cannot take page loading speed for granted, as most users simply don’t like to wait for results they are seeking and simply bounce off your website, particularly when they are on the move between aspects of their daily life. Audiences are highly distractable. A faster landing page load time will always lead to higher sales, because you are giving shoppers what they want conveniently. Let us evaluate your website pages to make sure they are optimised to load faster and within optimal rates, so you don’t lose to the back clickers and dire bounce rates.
Having an easily navigable website structure is absolutely essential to help guide your website traffic through their purchasing journeys. This may seem so basic, but we can all name a point at which we got tired of trying to figure our way through a cumbersome route to our end goal. A full evaluation your website navigational performance and page hierarchy ensures your customers can find what they are looking for, with easily found categories and logical subcategories. Intuitive navigation is essential to making sure that your customer never get lost in the process of shopping and abandon your site through frustration and impatience.
AdsRunner’s conversion optimisation service will track and analyse your traffic, every step of the way, so you can understand where in your marketing funnel you’re losing customers the most. It could be a bug, preventing a landing page from loading, incompatibility issues on web browsers or mobile devices, or that your customer simply couldn’t find what they were looking for and decided to abandon your website. We make sure such issues are identified and addressed early on to avoid wasted advertising budget and increase conversions now and for the longer term.
When a user visits your website, but leaves without taking any action whatsoever, this is classed as a ‘bounce’, where people bounce away from you, to a competitor. Bounce rate reduction management aims to monitor and evaluate your bounce rates across your website’s pages, allowing us to prioritise problem areas, with the aim of reducing your sales losses over time. Repairing your ‘leaky bucket’ means your sales tap is fully working and you are turning more of your traffic into future customers.
