The focus is to get the maximum benefit from traffic already attracted to your website, saving you money and achieving a better return on investment (ROI).

CRO determines why visitors to your website aren’t taking the actions you want them to – signing up for a newsletter, filling out a contact form, making a purchase, downloading an App, or whatever performance metric you’ve set – and helps guide improvements to reach your conversion targets.

What is your website conversion rate?

To work out your current website conversion rate:

  1. Use your current analytics tool to get the total number of conversions for your site. That is, the number of unique visitors who did the action you wanted (eg signed up for an email newsletter, made a purchase, downloaded an e-book, or other action).
  2. Divide the total number of conversions by the total number of visitors to your site to get your conversion rate.

Look at metrics such as bounce rate, exit rate, average time on site and pages per view to qualify your conversion rate figure and determine areas of concern.
