USABILITY IMPROVEMENTS INCREASE NEW CUSTOMER SIGN-UP RATE BY 15.4% FOR CONTACT ENERGY

Objectives & Results

Our objective was to Increase new customer acquisitions by improving the usability of the online sign up process.

Result:

  • Improved new customer sign up rate by 15.4%

Brief

Contact Energy is one of New Zealand’s leading retailers of electricity and natural gas. Contact are continually looking for ways to improve their service and improve the online customer experience and resulting online signups.

FIRST specialises in improving results through Conversion Rate Optimisation (CRO) and identified an opportunity to run an A/B experiment on the new customer sign-up page and funnel.


Approach

Through A/B testing, an original webpage or process is tested in parallel against a recommended webpage & validated through actual visitor behaviour. The pages effectively compete against each other to determine whether the recommended changes produce a better outcome. A/B testing removes guesswork and proves what actually works.

FIRST reviewed the existing page and application process and conducted consumer research to understand what might be hindering new customers from signing up online. A new customer acquisition process was designed and developed and then tested against the old sign-up process.

It is important to note that by improving the conversion rate, ROI from all marketing channels is improved. Incremental improvements to website conversion rate make a huge difference to a company’s bottom line.
