Unlock the Power of CRO for Your Business
We just wrapped up an inspiring event in Geneva, where we invited industry leaders to learn more about the power of Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO). At Enigma, we regularly host private events where we talk about a wide range of marketing topics. This week, our CRO experts Noé Mage and Grégoire Causse showed our guests how they can turn their website visitors into paying customers.
Are you looking to boost your online conversions and take your business to the next level? Then it’s time to discover the magic of Conversion Rate Optimization.
While driving traffic to your website is important, you still have to convince your users to buy your product or service and not that of the competition. By identifying and meeting your prospects’ needs, you can achieve sustainable growth. That’s where CRO comes in.
So, what exactly is CRO? It’s the process of increasing the percentage of users or website visitors who take a desired action, such as filling out a form or making a purchase. By optimizing your website’s content, testing different approaches, and improving workflows, you can generate highly-qualified leads, increase revenue, and lower acquisition costs.
Let’s break it down further.
First off, what is a conversion rate? It’s the percentage of visitors who successfully complete a specific action on your website, like signing up for a service or buying a product. A high conversion rate indicates a well-designed and appealing website, while a low conversion rate may be due to factors like slow load times or unclear messaging.
But what’s considered a good conversion rate? Well, that depends on various factors such as your industry, niche, and target audience. On average, e-commerce websites in the United States saw a conversion rate of 2.3%, while Great Britain reached over 4%. If your conversion rate is below par, it’s time to optimize.
To implement a successful CRO strategy, consider focusing on key areas of your website, such as the homepage, pricing page, blog, and landing pages. Each of these presents an opportunity to engage visitors and guide them towards taking action.
CRO goes hand in hand with search engine optimization (SEO). While SEO aims to increase organic traffic, CRO focuses on turning that traffic into customers. By optimizing your website’s visibility and functionality, you set yourself up for success.
Ready to dive into CRO?
Here are some strategies to consider:
- Include text-based calls-to-action within blog posts. Move beyond traditional banner CTAs and use compelling text-based CTAs to entice readers to take action.
- Test and optimize your landing pages. Various methods such as A/B testing, heatmaps, and “5-second tests” allow you to fine-tune the design and content of your landing pages in order to maximize their impact.
- Cater to high-intent visitors. Some visitors are ready to engage with sales reps right away. Streamline the process by providing clear pathways for them to become marketing qualified leads (MQLs).
- Engage visitors with live chat or messaging. Adding a personal touch and instant assistance on high-converting web pages can further boost conversions.
