Gone are the days when social media publishing and engagement could be tacked onto the daily responsibilities of an intern — as were many of the first roles in social media. Today’s growth-minded organizations need a team of people ideating, creating, publishing, and promoting content on social media to drive
Today, most marketing teams are structured to drive traffic towards websites, which then converts into leads for the sales team to close. Once this process starts to deliver results, marketers then seek to generate even more traffic, and hopefully even more success. An oversimplification, but that’s the standard marketing playbook.
When you’re creating content for the web, it’s easy to make assumptions about what you think your audience might respond to — but that’s not necessarily the right mentality.
Enter A/B testing: one of the easiest and most popular forms of conversion rate optimization (CRO) testing known to marketers. And while many businesses have seen the value in using this type of validation to improve their decision making, others have tried it, only to be left with inconclusive results — which is frustrating, to say the least.
Whether you’re new to marketing or decades into your career, conversion rate optimization is an ever-changing topic and necessary asset in your marketing playbook.
Looking to learn more about your audience? Want to manipulate your existing resources to improve their performance? How about growing your business by improving lead flow? Wouldn’t that be nice?
Your website copy is responsible for more than just presenting your visitors with basic information. In fact, your words alone have the ability to influence how visitors feel about your brand, what they choose to click (or not click), and how your site ranks in search engines.
How can you ensure that it’s working the way you want it to? Testing.
Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) isn’t a widely known field, even among digital marketers. If you need a quick refresher, CRO is the process of creating an experience for your website visitors that’ll convert them into customers.
But this science of lead conversion is quickly gaining ground. After all, who doesn’t want more clicks, leads, and sales?
Optimizing your website to generate leads is a no-brainer. But it’s not as simple as throwing a “click here” button on your home page and watching the leads pour in. (Unfortunately.)
Instead, marketers and designs need to take a more strategic approach. In this post, we’ll go over some quick ways you can optimize your website for lead generation that actually work.
If you’re serious about improving more conversions, you need to start thinking of conversion rate optimization (CRO) differently. CRO isn’t just about making small adjustments to a landing page to get 5% more conversions. But if you’ve tried moving page elements around, tested variations of your copy, and optimized your form, but still aren’t seeing meaningful conversion gains, don’t worry — all is not lost.
Do you remember your first A/B test on email? I do. (Nerdy, I know.) I felt simultaneously thrilled and terrified because I knew I had to actually use some of what I learned in college stats for my job.
I sat on the cusp of knowing just enough about statistics that it could be dangerous. For instance, I knew that you needed a big enough sample size to run the test on. I knew I needed to run the test long enough to get statistically significant results.
When most people talk about getting quality lead information from forms, they usually talk about one tactic: changing the length of the form. The longer the form, the better quality the leads will be … right?
Truthfully, it’s not always that simple. For most businesses, changing the form length is a great
