Why is it we are obsessed with optimising our websites for the search engines? All of us can get carried away with the desire to generate more traffic. We figure that if our site currently gets 100 people a day and we make 1 sale, then getting 200 people per day will double our turnover.
Why aren’t we obsessed with optimising the landing pages on the site for conversions? It can be easier and quicker to do and can bring far greater results. Increase that 1% conversion rate to 2% by identifying the different personas that visit your site and catering for their motivational needs so they take the required call to action. And you’ve doubled your turnover without the cost of an SEO campaign. If any of our readers have got examples of sites that are truly conversion focused why not share them with us. Comment below giving us the URL, your target persona(s) and the desired call to action. We want to see some example of some good profitable websites – especially some South African ones.
