The Importance Of Conversion Rate Optimisation 

In digital marketing, the conversion rate is the rate at which visitors to your site ‘convert’ into either paying customers or qualified leads. So, if your site had one hundred visitors, and six of them filled out the contact form requesting a call back, your site would have a conversion rate of 6%. 

Conversion rate optimisation refers to all the design changes you would make to your website to increase your conversion rate. Page headings, images and call to action buttons are all examples of things you might adjust to see the effect on your conversion rate.

Despite its huge impact on user experience and search engine rankings, web speed is often overlooked. Do you know how long a user will wait for a webpage to load before giving up and clicking the back button? On average, it takes 2 seconds, and if you’re showing them an ad, you probably have an even smaller margin to load your web page before the user gets bored.

Functional Web Design – What’s The Cost?

Many of the small businesses we speak to are worried that developing a website will be prohibitively expensive – but it doesn’t have to be!

But that doesn’t mean you should go for the cheapest option available just because you’re trying to save money. A badly designed or broken website will do more damage to your brand than not having one at all.

The best way to save money on a website is to get it right the first time, otherwise you’ll end up paying someone to do it on the cheap and then paying someone else to fix it.
