If we say that the most happening thing these days in the sbusiness world is digital marketing, it is not an exaggeration. The use of internet and other digital media for the use of marketing has seen a tremendous growth in recent times. The digital marketing for a company is managing different forms of online presence in the form of company websites, mobile apps and in social media. There are various digital marketing techniques in vogue like mobile marketing, search engine optimization (SEO), social media marketing, conversion rate optimization (CRO) etc. that are followed by branding development companies.
In digital marketing, conversion rate optimization or conversion optimization is a method of increasing the conversion of visitors into customers for a website. In other words, it is the process of increasing the percentage of website visitors who take a desired action on the website. For e.g. for an online store, CRO is increasing the percentage of visitors who become the buyers on the website. It is done by using data analytics and feedback of the visitors to improve a company’s website performance. In a way, it turns passive website browsers into customers. This means CRO is determining what the browsers are looking for in your website and what is to be given. A brand consultant understands this and helps in removing or relocating unnecessarily complicated procedures in your website that prevent or delay conversion from happening.
Why is CRO required?
Let us delve into the reasons that support the process of conversion rate optimization.
- Increased ROI: You invest for the creation of your website and also pay for the traffic that comes to your site in some way or the other. To get the maximum visitors you promote your website in many ways including search engine optimization and social media marketing. When you pay for getting traffic, it doesn’t make any sense if that traffic does not get converted into customers. In such a scenario, a high conversion rate means you get a better return on your investment.
- Cost effective: Branding firms say that converting visitors into customers is cost-effective than finding more visitors. Rather than spending high amounts on increasing traffic to the website, it is less expensive to convert the traffic into customers.
- Guards against the less attention span of visitors: As we discussed before, CRO is determining what the browsers are looking for on your website and giving them that. When a brand consultant figures out this, and necessary action is taken to increase conversion rate, visitors who have very less patience and spend very little time on browsing your site also become your customers before they lose patience and move on to another site.
Branding development companies say that all this does not mean that merely increasing conversion rate will benefit your business. It is all the more important to understand that conversion rate optimization is more about targeting and getting the right kind of customers who are the correct fit for your company as they love your product and become brand ambassadors for your product and company.
