Often we hear clients jokingly say to "hit the big green money button" to ramp up their online sales or leads. With split testing, we might work out that it is in fact a big orange button which will achieve that objective. A/B or ‘split testing’, is the method of comparing modified versions of the same page to work out which version will perform best. For example, we may test the impact of adding a phone number to the header, using "add to cart" instead of "add to bag" on product pages, or even a completely new page to test what works best. Some of these changes will have incremental benefit, and others might have substantial benefit. But only by taking a disciplined and scientific approach to finding out, will we be able to make your website the best it can be.
This means that we remove the need to make assumptions about what users are more likely to respond to (let’s face it, nobody gets assumptions right all the time). A/B Testing also opens doors to designs and techniques which may have otherwise been ignored or overlooked. Basically, in the simplest terms, A/B Testing is a way to ‘try before you buy’ and test how your clients respond to different layouts.
Send users who fit your demographic through a series of specially designed tests. These tests are made to reveal the frictions and frustrations of people using your website. User testing is unique in that we can attain a combination of quantitative and qualitative feedback which can be immediately implemented on your website or used to form a set of split tests. Deliverables from our user testing projects include all user videos, full analysis, executive summary, recommendations (that can be passed straight onto a developer), and a highlights video which highlights the key moments throughout the user testing.
Our experience in optimising websites means that we are able to create a well-designed starting point with conversion rate in mind. To represent this, we use wireframes. A wireframe is a visual guide that represents the skeletal framework of a website. The purpose of these is to help the designer visualise where elements should be placed in order to satisfy a particular business goal.
Tracking and analysis are key to working out where to start with your CRO journey (or what to do next). By analysing the steps on the path to conversion, we can identify steps or pages where users are stopping. Identifying these bottle necks is an important step to avoid leaking sales/leads. We use our custom-built reporting dashboards to keep track of your website as it grows, and gain insights as to which parts are working and which aren’t. Google Analytics is one of the key tools that we use to feed data into our dashboards, which provides extensively detailed information to remove any guesswork from strategies and find what user acceptance testing can miss.
We provide you the most relevant SEO data in our monthly reports, which we can customise to suit your needs. For example, if you would prefer weekly updates, we are happy to oblige. Or if you’d like a report focused specifically on local views, we can create that for you. If you aren’t quite sure what to ask for, share your thoughts with us and we can make some suggestions.
"What is CRO?" we hear you ask. We've put together a list of a few of the questions we often get asked about our CRO & UX services. Have a read through to get some quick answers to those burning questions!
There’s no use in having a stunning website which promotes creativity and interactive design but lacks in useability and is difficult and painful to navigate. Don’t get us wrong though, it goes the other way too. A website which is very simple to navigate yet lacks a pleasing visual appearance can make users feel quite bored and unsatisfied with your website. Finding that perfect balance between usability and user experience is what makes a great website – and we can help you get there.
