Oftentimes the challenge faced by businesses who do well offline is replicating that success online. For Primepac, 94% of new users who came to their website failed to complete purchases. They were clearly missing out on a huge amount of sales because customers were dropping off at critical points in the buyer’s journey and not completing purchases. Primepac approached FIRST to develop and implement a targeted CRO program that would improve the site’s user experience, increase conversion rates and grow revenue.
A smart CRO solution aligned with Primepac’s objectives
For Primepac, FIRST developed a conversion optimisation program based on customer data-driven insights that delivered immediate and significant increases in conversion and revenue.
1. Website funnel and analysis and insight
FIRST conducted an in-depth analysis of the flow of users through the website to identify the points where conversion was low. A Digital Measurement Framework was used to provide the insights to identify the critical points where small changes can lead to a maximum impact on conversions and revenue.
2. Testing, trialling and measurement
Using Optimizely, the world’s leading A/B testing platform, alternative pages with the improved features were created and tested for each page of the checkout process. By changing key elements of the pages based on user research (i.e. heatmaps and form analytics), FIRST simplified the purchase process, removed friction points and made it easier for users to flow through the conversion funnel.
3. Proactive management and continuous optimisation
The continued success of the program can be attributed to a good combination of diagnostic and analysis tools to effectively measure user engagement and interaction and data-driven insights from a team of CRO specialists to quickly develop and implement site changes in response to results obtained.
In-depth analysis and an agile ‘test everything’ approach of this type would be beneficial to any company struggling with converting online visitors into paying customers.
