Why does my business need conversion optimisation?
Get web users to do what you want
A large percentage of your traffic will be from people who are interested in your product or service. So if you have a low conversion rate this may mean that something prevented them from completing this action. If you already have the traffic coming in, by simply optimising your pages and making it clear what you want your customers to do; you could see a significant improvement in the number of conversions you receive.
Increase Return across all channels
Conversion optimisation is the process of improving your site so that a higher percentage of the users who visit your site complete a desired action such as purchasing a product. By using call-to-actions on your homepage and landing pages, such as discount banners and enquiry forms, you can entice users to complete these desired actions and increase your overall conversion rate. Improving the worth of online marketing in all channels.
Improve bounce rate
Bounce rate is the percentage of users who leave your site after only viewing one page. A high bounce rate is mainly due to the fact that the user didn’t find what they were led to believe was on the page. By adding more relevant content onto the page and linking to other relevant internal pages, you should see your bounce rate decreasing.
Increase user time on page
If you have a high bounce rate, this generally means that you have a low average time on page. Improving your site pages can improve your bounce rate, increase your time on page and in turn increase your conversion rate. The longer the user stays on a webpage, the more time they have to complete your desired conversion action.

We will analyse your site to see what current conversion points are on your site and use Google Analytics to see which pages are performing better than others. It is at this stage that we will be able to see your pages conversion rate, bounce rate’s and average time on page and we will use this as a guideline.
