Modern businesses spend a lot of time and money driving traffic to their websites. While getting traffic is important, businesses also need to make sure they are getting the most from the traffic they get.
This is where conversion rate optimization (CRO) comes in. With CRO, you define an action you want website visitors to take, and you design the page or conversion funnel in order to increase the chances that they will complete that action. For many websites, a conversion is a sale, but it could be actions like downloading your app, signing up for an account, subscribing to an email list or filling out a form.
CRO is one area where many new businesses have trouble. They have ideas about design that may not align well with the goals of their website or they just don’t know many of the best practices for a successful CRO strategy. With this post, you will learn more about some of the more common CRO mistakes start-ups make and some of the things you can do to avoid them.
