    •  Make sure that customers arrive at the exact information they expect. Your promotions lead visitors to relevant landing pages, and not the home page of your website.For example, If customer is looking for “car insurance policy”, land them on this particular page and discuss the information around “car insurance policy”. Conversion Optimization Practices by Harekrishna Patel 12/17/2012 15
    •  Communicate and engage the customers with same message throughout the buying process.For example, If a user clicks on a PPC ad: “10% off for 6 months signup”, they expect to see the same headline on the landing page. Conversion Optimization Practices by Harekrishna Patel 12/17/2012 16
    •  Keep the page simple. The focus of your page needs to be completely on getting visitors to perform the desired action. Using too much technology will distract them, and your message may be lost. Lot of images, multiple color usage, and multiple banners is the some examples of creating distractions.

    • For example, Accurate information on the site e.g. supports the industry and what customer is knowing, latest information on the site. Professional design e.g. clean design, distraction free, fast page download time. Show real life business things e.g. trade activities, people photos & profiles, events. Clients, testimonials, case studies. Highlight expertise. Positive media coverage, industry certifications, awards, memberships and standards compliances. Conversion Optimization Practices by Harekrishna Patel 12/17/2012 20
    •  Do not make the mistake of offering several products on a single landing page to take advantage of multiple products or services. Focus only one thing at a time on landing page.For example, You are selling utility software for small businesses like anti- virus, online billing, project management etc. Focus one software at a time on landing page like online billing and discuss the problems and how your product solves it. Conversion Optimization Practices by Harekrishna Patel 12/17/2012 21
    •  Even minor changes and updates on the site, sometimes make the mistakes in code and functionalities not working properly. Check forms, buttons, shipping calculator, taxes etc if working properly. Website gets traffic from different sources, browsers and operating systems. Check your traffic sources and see what devices and operating systems deliver results that cannot ignore. Check your website with all common browsers and all operating systems for compatibility issues. Conversion Optimization Practices by Harekrishna Patel 12/17/2012 22
    •  You need to promise your clients that their privacy will be guarded. Make sure your privacy policy is clear and easy to understand, and be sure to direct your customers to this policy. Place a link to your privacy policy, an icon that shows precautions have been taken or a simple statement such as “Your privacy is important to us”, in close proximity to calls to action. Conversion Optimization Practices by Harekrishna Patel 12/17/2012 23

Encourage readers to convert because you will have minimized their risks.For example, Give 30 days to try your product risk‐free, and if not satisfied, they can get a full refund. Suggest free consultations for new clients to get a feel for your services without spending any money. Conversion Optimization Practices by Harekrishna Patel 12/17/2012 24
    •  The fold is the point on a web page below which scrolling is required to view additional content. Especially when your “Call-to-Action” is in first fold, it may lose the attention of customer while scrolling the page. If your page is in 2 folds, highlight “Call-to-Action” for every fold. Because you don’t know where the fold will fall and appeal the customers. However, different browsers and screen resolutions place the fold at different point on your page. Conversion Optimization Practices by Harekrishna Patel 12/17/2012 25
    •  Using a quick tag line above your call to action, briefly indicating what action is expected, will help it stand out. Examples include “Buy Now”; “Email to a Friend”; or “Register Here” instead of “Submit”. CTA should have for every screen, every fold. About every 400 to 500 lines of vertical resolution. CTA for the desired goal should be easily differentiated from other elements of a page.

Don’t place the graphics or any action that doesn’t relate to the main goal of a page. A quick glance at your landing page should be enough for someone to know what you offer. Use bold, colorful, and large text and images for the most important parts of your page. Conversion Optimization Practices by Harekrishna Patel 12/17/2012 27
    •  Content should be easy to read. Avoid jargons. Customers should understand how you can help them quickly to solve their problems. E.g. showing them list of benefits in bullet format. The page should be well organized, easy to scan and spread out. Conversion Optimization Practices by Harekrishna Patel 12/17/2012 28
    •  Visitors should know what to do and the order in which to do it. Page should be easy to navigate with clear links and buttons to keep users on conversion path. Call-to-Action and links should be clearly visible and meaningful with quick glance around the page.For example, From the landing page of “car insurance”, a text links says “learn more about our car insurance packages”. Instead it should be like “Compare our car insurance plans that suitable your budget”. Conversion Optimization Practices by Harekrishna Patel 12/17/2012 29
    •  Visitors may change their mind even they are ready to buy. Visitors want smoothly, quickly and secured anticipations. Include as many options to contact you like phone number, email address, chat IDs or quick contact forms.
