  2. 2. Current Conversion Performance This report will identify the site’s top landing pages, their traffic sources and define “mission critical activities” that can be improved and/or tested. • On average, approximately 2% of direct/branded and SEO traffic convert from the site. This is a really low number and tells us there is too much or not the right content. • Conversions are defined for the site as sending an email.Emails consist of 1) signing up for a seminar, 2) requesting 2consultation, 3) asking a general legal question or 4) junk.

Top Landing Page for Direct Traffic: Home Page• The top landing page, the home page, for direct traffic, has a bounce rate of 48%.• The majority of this traffic is coming from direct mail campaigns (RME invitations, advertisements). While this is respectable for industry standards, we can test elements to lower this and increase desired conversion (email for seminar registration).• Direct traffic converts at 3.6%; the highest type of conversion. 4
  5. 5. Improving Home Page• Goal is a “hyper free” zone; eliminate visual clutter.
