• 3 Ways Companies Use Social Media to Increase Conversion Rates

    How’s your social media marketing working for you? If yours is like most businesses, it’s fallen a little short of expectations, or a lot short.

    If your social marketing has been a let down, consider these three points:

    Stop thinking of social as a straight-line sales or lead generation channel. If you’re trying to sell directly on social, you’re missing the point. ‘Social’ means ‘human interaction’ and without that interaction, your social will fail. Stop thinking of social as a popularity contest. If you consider your social to be a failure because you have fewer ‘likes’, ‘followers’ or ‘connections’ than you hoped, then

  • SEO & Content Marketing: One Way to Boost Both

    At Invesp we’d like to think that conversion optimization is the most important link in the digital marketing chain between your target customers and a qualified lead or an ecommerce sale.

    But if we were an SEO company we’d be singing a different tune. How can conversions be so important if you need traffic before you can start converting? From that point of view traffic and the SEO that brings it appear to be the most important link in the chain.

    Want to know what’s really most important? Think about SEO and conversions, and think about one without the other.

  • AB Tests That Destroy the Myths Created by AB Testing

    Remember the good old days of retailing? You could count on at least two truths. First, advertising would get people into your store and, second, you converted some of that traffic into customers – at least 20% of them, with many sectors enjoying rates of 50% or more.

    And there was a bonus truth: ‘cart abandonment’ wasn’t in your vocabulary.

    Then along came ecommerce. The two truths remained the same. Online advertising, like SEO and PPC, would drive customers to your website. But the second truth proved shocking. While conversions still occured, online conversion rates were an appalling 2% to

  • Keep Your Mcommerce Website Optimization in Perspective

    If in the past year there’s been an ecommerce topic hotter than the disruption caused by mcommerce, well, let us know in the comments below. Other issues may have enjoyed their 15 minutes, but mobile commerce has been somewhere on the podium for the past few years.

    E-retail specialists, conversion rate optimizers and web site designers tout the advantages of mobile optimization because shoppers increasingly use their mobile devices to buy. Many (at least those sounding the death knell for desktops) go so far as to say you should optimize your site for mobile first, then convert your mobile site

  • Case Study: Removing Video increased conversion rate by 88.46%

    There’s a golden rule to conversion optimization that is actually crucial to understand before you begin any optimization effort: What works for one site, may not work for yours (even if they’re in the same vertical). This is key for many reasons because once you understand this rule, reckless copying off competitor sites will stop, and many blogs or books that give all the “conversion” secrets will be appropriately deemed as useless. There is never a one size fits all in conversion. There are best practices, sure, but never assume that there are single answers. Take something as simple as

  • 3 Landing Page Optimization Best Practices That Might Not be Best for You

    For the purposes of this post, we need to get one basic thing straight: what is a landing page?

    The literal definition is: a ‘page’ that a web visitor ‘lands’ on when clicking on a link to that page or when arriving at a site after entering a URL in a browser.

    So a landing page can be just about any page on your website. A fact confirmed by lots of leading landing page specialists, including Unbounce and Hubspot.

    The Term ‘Landing Page’ Sucks

  • Are You a CRO Junkie? It Could be Ruining Your AB Tests

    The silver lining of appallingly low online conversion rates is that even small conversion improvements can produce big bottom-line improvements.

    And whether you listen to the experts, like Neil Patel, or simply observe the experts, like Google (which performs thousands of tests each year – pardot.com) you’ll know that A/B or split testing is integral to improving conversion rates.

    But, believe it or not, if you run any kind of testing program, you are in the minority.

    Only 44% of companies use some form of testing to improve their conversion rates.

    But Don’t Get Smug if You Split Test
