In other words, the goal is for the highest possible percentage of visitors to your site to convert, or complete your desired action. CRO is quickly gaining in popularity because it’s seen as a way to increase profits from sales without raising your advertising spend.

Why you should be looking at conversion rate optimisation

The highest converting and most well-designed sites can always be improved. Through CRO you will be able improve your site, conversion process and ensure you are getting the right kind of customers. Through improving your conversion processes you will not only be improving the visitors’ onsite experience but also lowering your acquisition costs to maximise profits.

User Experience (UX)

During the CRO process we work through the site as if we were a first-time visitor looking to convert. During our UX appraisal we will test your site to see if the conversion process is easy to understand and whether it is intuitive from a customer point of view.

Conversion Funnel Analysis

We will help you find out why your visitors aren’t converting and help identify any potential barriers within your funnel. We’ll be asking questions like: Is the process confusing? Are the calls to action clear?

Experiment Generation

We’ll look at your priorities and define those concerns users may have. We’ll formulate our hypotheses and design the experiments accordingly.

Testing Plans & Schedules

Once the experiments have been generated and baseline figures acquired we will draw up a clear and methodical testing plan so that every invested party is able to access a record of both current and future experiments.


You may not feel the need to employ an external agency for every step of your CRO, so we can be flexible to work around your requirements. So if you are simply looking for someone to perform analysis for possible future testing we can still offer insights and guide you on which areas may be of higher priority (and have the largest impact).

Reporting & Analysis

Analysing the results against the expected outcome and then formulating a plan going forward is imperative for driving incremental gains. Optimisation is not a final act but more an ongoing process. Are there still aspects that could be improved? (The answer is a usually a resounding yes).

Optimization Strategy Formulation

Conversion rate optimization (CRO) can have a huge impact on your online marketing and your company. Unfortunately, all testing is not created equal. The wrong test at the wrong time can waste a lot of time, money and conversions. At DigitalVast Advertising, we’ve developed an efficient, profit-driven approach to CRO that allows our clients to take their digital marketing to the next level to drive market.

Test Implementation (Design + Dev)

Securing resources for marketing initiatives is a common struggle for many businesses. With years of experience designing conversion focused web experiences, our designers and developers make high-performing pages a reality. Even if design resources are available internally, our team can give an outsider’s perspective and provide additional help. we can help ensure the expert testing strategies we formulate will be made a reality.

AB and Multivariate Testing

Tired of testing different headlines, button colors, and other low hanging fruit only to see diminishing or flat results? We aren’t a firm with a playbook of the same five tests we run with every client. We believe our industry should be beyond the “10 Best Landing Page Tips”, and it is time that your conversion rate optimization agency is too. We will develop testing strategies which will push your team into new territory and you can see the result instant.

Data Analysis

For a mature testing program, test analysis should be more complex than did a variation simply win. You must look at downstream effects like impact on purchase or lead quality, impacts to VOC, changes to website pathing, decreased margins or profitability, changes to attribution modeling, changes to user attention/engagement, and many others. We can help develop those best practices for deeper analysis and help find the right tools to augment traditional testing and analytics reporting.

Marketing Technology

In today’s world of Marketing Technology it is easy to lose a handle on things, or be paralyzed with the non-communication of the many services between one another. Often the approach of having a large number of different services to measure, or interact with, users can leave us in a very fragmented marketing stack, where nothing talks with one another and numbers are all different. We have extensive experience getting different services- CRMs, Click Tracking, Web Analytics, Email, Tag Management.

Training & Workshops

Sometimes there is no substitute for locking the team in a room and getting deeply involved with testing.We can custom tailor on-site training to tackle a wide range of subjects: current testing setup assessment, developing an optimization culture internally, live optimization of your web experiences, training on testing tools, developing what testing should be structured based on company setup, technical consultation with IT teams for better symbiosis with testing, and more things you may need.

Why should you care?

You should care about CRO for a few reasons. First, you are most likely paying for traffic to your site in one way or another, and a high conversion rate means a better return on that investment (ROI). It’s also much more cost-effective to convert a higher percentage of the visitors you already have than to attract more visitors. In addition to improving your ROI, optimization helps to defend against the limited attention span of your average visitor by giving them what they want before they tire of looking for it and move on.

CRO is important!

It’s important to understand, however, that optimization is about getting more of the right kind of customers—not just blindly optimizing the conversion rate of a given page or campaign. It won’t do you any good if the people you’re acquiring are the wrong fit for your business. It’s important to keep the focus on optimizing to find more customers who will love your product and help you grow by spreading the word. Everything else is a waste of your time and resources.

Actionable is the key word here. Collecting data for data’s sake is not the end goal of user surveys. Rather, it’s the ability to analyze the responses and find new areas of opportunity to improve the performance of your business that counts. Collection without action is a cardinal sin.

The next chapter is devoted exclusively to the importance of surveys, so we won’t delve too deeply into that here. Instead, let’s review the distinct types of online user surveys.
