How does the overtly obvious and pushy marketing make you feel? A little annoyed right?

This is a behavioural effect called reactance which occurs when you push users too hard, you may end up making them do the very opposite of what you intended. There are ways to counter this like using humour but ultimately it’s important to be mindful of how we use powers of persuasion. Understanding the real importance of copy and Ui is just part of what we practice at Lane.

Conversion Rate Optimisation FAQs

Here are some questions that we often get asked by clients, that you might be wondering about too.

CRO in plain terms is increasing the proportion of visitors to a site or users of an app who complete a desired action.  In other words, CRO is about employing strategies and tactics to translate traffic into sales or sign ups.  It’s making the most of the people who are already visiting you.

At Lane, we think results-driven CRO stems from two main things:

  1. Finding out about your visitors and what they are looking for.
  2. Giving them what they need.

Those two elements alone will make a huge difference in getting ‘just looking’ visitors over the line.   For a new site, CRO should follow fast on the heels of brilliant UX and UI system design and a damn good SEO strategy, because it’s all about creating an environment in which users feel comfortable and confident and where they can easily find what they’re looking for or are interested in. That way, they are far more likely to Add to Cart, Go to Checkout or submit their personal data.

We get asked this question a lot. The best response we’ve found is to answer it with another question. If we gave you a number, what would you do with that information? If the fabled ‘good’ conversion rate was lower than your current conversion rate would you rest on laurels, happy in the knowledge you’re ‘doing well’?

At Lane we follow a distinct sequence of stages in order to get your users converting in their droves.  Within this there will, of course, be nuances and a tailoring of tactics according to the nature of your business, but the structure still stands:

  • Discover Insights & User Behaviours
  • Identify Conversion Hotspots
  • Create Innovative Designs
  • Split Test for Success

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) will drive traffic to your site through the use of keyword research and usage, and through related content and social strategies.  SEO makes you easier to find. 

Conversion Rate Optimisation (CRO) takes those you’ve drawn to your site through SEO and makes them more likely to stay and interact with your brand.  CRO makes you easier to buy from or connect with.  It’s about making your website a better sales person and breaking down barriers that might be stopping people from doing what you’d like them to do.
