How Do You Increase Your Sales Conversion Rates?

5 replies
There's many things that can be done to increase your sales conversion rates. Some of the things I do are boldly displaying the main keyword phrase at the top of my page that searches used to find me (seo and ppc) so that there is more relevancy and I also add audio and video.

What are some things you do to increase your sales conversion rates?

    Pretty much everything on a website can be tweaked and changed to
    increase conversions... the secret is Testing

    Whatever you change, tweak, move, take off, make sure to test
    one at a time!

    If you do too much at once, you'll never know what really "did" it
    for you!

    Some of the things you want to look at are:

    - headline
    - sub-headlines
    - call to action
    - look and feel (graphics, fonts, colors...)
    - placement of elements (especially above the fold (before you scroll))
    - navigation elements
    - on page SEO
    - etc...etc...etc...

    Like I said, pretty much everything can change conversion rates,
    you need to test, test and test some more!

    Cheers, Pete

    Yea, it's all about testing.

    Every time I launch a new site I start off
    on a regular white page.

    (Keep in mind I'm not Dr. Ninja with
    this splittesting stuff... just a dude
    who knows how to get by and make a
    few bucks)

    I start by testing different headlines.

    In each I make sure I state the end
    benefit to the visitor...

    From there it's all about the proof elements
    and testimonials...

    Then I start on the page layout.

    Just started something I thought would be
    a HUGE success... damn page only converted
    at 1.1% (Shows what I know!)

    Ran like that for around 2K clicks, got some
    2nd opinions...

    Shortened the copy, increased the frequency of
    the benefit statements + frequency of proof shots...

    Actually removed 50% of the testimonials
    (on 1 version, on the other I'm testing a sidebar
    testimonial group)

    Overnight conversions have already jumped
    up to over 2%... still not where I want to
    be but it's WAY better from before!

    Bottom line: Just test EVERYTHING!

    Hope that helps

    Try posting in the copywriting forum you will get a better response.
    Nothing to sell, only value to give and new knowledge to learn.
