What is conversion optimization?
Conversion optimization is the process of intentionally and guiding site visitors through a digital buying experience and motivating the user to feel connected to your brand and a take a desired action (the conversion). An example of an actionable conversion goal would be completing a web form, signing up for a newsletter subscription, trading personal information in exchange for downloading a detailed report, asking to be contacted, a click on a link in an email, a “like” on a social channel, a submitted review, or even an expression of interest on the phone.
To enable holistic and well-rounded conversion optimization focused planning and thoughtful relationship-building actions are crucial. To earn a lead conversion, it is essential to plant seeds of engagement with targeted buyers either directly on your site, on social platforms, or on referring digital properties; these pre-conversion touchpoints are known as micro-conversions. At the macro conversion (target action) stage, some users abandon. The goal of conversion optimization is to keep the funnel as open as possible; the more traffic you drive to the site, the more likely you are to earn conversions or gain back the re-engagement of those previously abandoned.
Conversion optimizers focus on finding out through continuous testing and evaluation of what motivate users, and how to create and refine the best content to drive a desired behavior or action. The influencing factors are very diverse and can vary by market segment and buyer persona. The structure of a web page, the arrangement of contact elements, the color and shape of contact elements, the layout of presented information , the power of a call-to-action, the design of the page, readability of content, and clarity of the value proposition work together to drive a user towards the act of converting.
Lots of visitors, or traffic, to the website tells you that search engine optimization and paid advertising have been set up correctly and are effective. However, what is most important for the company’s success is whether the prospective customers also take the next step towards making a purchase. We measure this success, which includes sales targets, based on the quantity and quality of contact inquiries (leads). Digital marketing is not just an art; it is a science too; it can be measured and controlled.
Why is Conversion Optimization important?
Conversion rate optimization is important because you can greatly influence the outcome of user behavior and drive more sales. Conversion optimization essential makes your investment in digital marketing more effective and efficient. If you want to get the most out of your digital marketing spend, it make sense to define conversion goals for each marketing activity, record the goal achievement rate (conversion rate), and continuously monitor it for areas of improvement. For example, it makes a big difference if one marketing campaign is earning a conversion rate of 0.2% verse another earning a 2% conversion rate. It’s obvious which campaign has a better ROI, and which one you should invest more time, money, and energy in. Do you know the conversion rate of your website and marketing campaigns?
Conversion Rates Guideline
There is not a universal benchmark or standardized conversion rate goal. Results and averages vary depending on industry, company, competitive position, market segments, marketing channel, buyer persona, and campaign timing. LeadEngine will help you develop a company benchmark and guideline tailored to your business and your goals. Here is an example of what a conversion rate guideline looks like:
A conversion rate of 2% is very good. Sometimes even 3 % is achieved.
The benchmark for good click-through rates for email marketing is 5-7 %.
In telemarketing, we are successful at a 5-7% rate of leads/appointments reached
