Is Your Website Optimized for Conversion?

Web designing services

You may have 3 million unique visitors a month and a well-designed website. But why aren’t people signing up for your newsletter, downloading your software, or purchasing your products? The reason could be that your website, as beautiful as it may be, isn’t optimised to help visitors convert.

Organizations use a common visual guide to help the conversion process known as the “conversion funnel.” The conversion funnel is meant to show the journey from landing on your website through the purchase, download, sign-up, or any other predetermined conversion.

  1.     Quality Content vs. Quantity of Content

The adage “if you build it, they will come” isn’t necessarily true regarding websites. Just because you have a well-designed site doesn’t mean people will find your website and sign up for your weekly newsletter, or purchase your products. 

To truly be effective and have people engage with your brand online, you have to have quality content on your website. Note that, I didn’t say anything about the the quantity of content. Quality content is usually the content created for your specific audience that has targeted keywords throughout the content. High-quality content has a high chance of being shared on social channels also. 

 Thanks to the piece of high-quality content on your website for attracting the targeted audience land on your site, and make purchases.  The visitor may explore your website for more content, such as product offerings, whitepapers, and blogs.  So creating quality content according to the visitor’s expectations is the most important thing for getting a good number of conversions. I will say that creating quality content is the starting point to bettering your website’s conversion rate.

  1.   Top Tier Navigation

When a new visitor lands on your website for the first time, they will interact with the website based on their past experiences on the web. Your website’s navigation must be clear and easy to use for your visitors to quickly and efficiently find relevant content.

Navigation guides your visitors to find what they are searching for.  Navigation is part of the UI/UX (user interface/user experience). If visitors to your website have a positive experience, they are most likely to come back. Return visitors are more likely to convert. Navigation is the key to helping a web visitor progress through the conversion funnel.

  1. Easy-to-understand Calls To Action Buttons. 

Complementary calls to action are essential for increasing your conversion rate on your website. After all, it doesn’t hurt to ask (subtly). For example, let’s say a web visitor is on your site reading an article about the top tech trends in 2024. They happen to see a call to action on the right rail of the page that says, “For more info on tech trends, sign up here.” Wouldn’t it be safe to assume that the user is more likely to sign up than someone who isn’t interested in tech trends?

This goes back to the quality content point. If you are creating quality content and guiding your web visitors through the conversion funnel through top-tier navigation and calls to action, you should begin to notice an increase in return visitors and a better conversion rate.

  1.     Analytics and Tracking

The reason I left analytics at the end was to make sure it is the most important thing. Analytics is used to track web activity on your site like traffic details. By using the analytics data you can make better business decisions, and your conversion rate will reach its full potential.

Most free analytics software will give your organization the ability to track which content pages are the most popular, where exactly visitors are in the conversion funnel, and what keywords are driving traffic to your site. This knowledge should provide your organization with the insight necessary to make changes to your website and further meet the needs of your potential customers.
