Website optimization whether it be for conversion, traffic, or anything else is something everyone knows (well, hopefully, knows) they should be doing. Unfortunately, it usually gets back-burnered for new content, pages, and other initiatives. Why does that happen? Well, typically optimization is viewed as difficult and time-consuming. Plus, you need a developer to make edits to your site for testing, right? Wrong.
On this week's episode of the Hubcast, we flush the format to bring you a conversation with two HubSpot Academy Professors: Jorie Munroe (Conversion Rate Optimization and Reporting & Analytics) and Justin Champion (Content Marketing). Check out the full episode audio below, OR watch the full video episode below that!
When people come to your website, oftentimes the first page they land on and see is your homepage. With 63% of marketers saying generating leads is one of their top challenges, you most definitely want to capitalize on this, one of the highest viewed pages of your site. Trying to determine what to include on the page can be overwhelming though. What should it say? What kind of features should it include?
Many feel the best user experience is one that naturally nurtures and converts users through content and design. We look for a balance that guides users to the places and actions we want, but once they are there, how do you persuade them to actually convert (without, ya know..stating the obvious)?
Average Conversion Rate The average conversion rate falls around 2.35%. The top 25% sites are converting at 5.31% and above, while the top 10% are looking at 11.45% and above. But, it’s important to realize factors like your industry, product or service, and your target audience all weigh in on your ability to convert visitors into leads. You're generating traffic and converting leads, but is it enough? While landing pages are easily the most important pages on your website (they're where you convey value, earn trust, and convert visitors into leads), marketers often struggle to understand their performance.
Sometimes the best inbound marketing campaigns don't look like campaigns at all. In this week's episode of The Inbound Success Podcast, I interview Bob Ruffolo, IMPACT's Founder and CEO and he's sharing the results that IMPACT achieved by applying conversion rate optimization principles to the company's own blog.
Content is at the heart of everything we do as marketers. Whether writing an email, creating a blog, developing the script for a video, or writing social media posts, at some point in our journey as marketers we sit down and write. Unfortunately, much of the time the stuff we write just plain sucks. I recently read the results of a survey by 4As that found only 4% of people believe marketers practice integrity. Do you know what that means? People don’t trust us.
The Closet Works Inc. is a custom closet and organization solution company servicing the greater Philadelphia area. While their team had no issue delivering value to their clients with their top-of-the-line, custom solutions, their website was still failing to engage website visitors and convert them into leads. It was time for a website redesign.
