What is Conversion Rate Optimization
What is a conversion in your point of view? If a visitor downloads your eBook, download your app, register in your site or purchase a product…etc Am I right? That means you want your visitor to do some action which you are really expecting from him to do while he visits your site. CRO is nothing but measuring this action and optimize to “how to increase this action or conversion rate more”. Conversion Rate Optimization is a method which helps you to leverage the performance of your website by using User Feedback and Analytics. CRO is very much useful to improve any metrics (Key Performance Indicators – KPIs) on your website, which you are really trying to improve. It is also useful to gain new customers, subscription, downloads…etc. I mean to say that CRO will increase the percentage of web traffic by converting a passive visitor to an active customer by giving the “Most Have User Experience”. With the help of CRO, you can give your customer what exactly they are looking for once they visit your website. In a simple way, CRO is more helpful in finding that why conversion is not happening and how to resolve it.
So Conversion Rate Optimization is;
- A well-defined systematic approach to boost the performance of the site.
- Measured by User Feedback & Analytics.
- Helps to get the most benefits from your existing traffic.
