  • 3 good reasonsSherpa – 2 to 8 seconds or about 15 words – headlines are keyIf not sending to LP, where? home page clutter or your navigation bar let’s them leaveHow many people have gone online and done a search for a product, clicked on an ad and ended up with having to sort through a company’s website to find the thing that we were looking for?LPs increase conversions
  • 70% of marketers are testing their landing pages68.2% saw an increase in conversions
  • If new to testing: Start more radical designs to find a winnerSLIGHT TWEAKS in headline can cause conversions to sour or plummet20% of visitors will read the body copy
  • One question we get - what to measure? Conversions can be revenue or can be the precursor torevenueTo increase conversions, you have to measure how many you’re losing
  • Company:GrasshopperWhat they do: 800 Call Tracking SoftwareTheir landing page objective: Increase Signups &amp; Average OrderWhat was done: A/B Split Test of two different designsPoll the audienceAny particular reason you chose A?Any particular reason you chose B?
  • Teleprospecting – takes a lot of time or a lot of people but effectiveAnd wanted to see if they could outperform through the email channel – improve conversion ratesBefore we engaged – we looked at some of the things in the past:At the top, navigation- a list of contact form fields – FAVORITE COLOR, WHAT KIND OF CAR THEY DRIVE, PREFER LIQUOR BEER or WINE An orange “submit” buttonMULTI-STEP
  • Removed Distractions – big image of the offer, no navigation menusOnly email required – pre-populated email address – 50% lift
  • Next – Gather additional insightTo do that, we provided an incentive of a chance to win an Amazon gift card
  • Same $500 incentive
  • Perception is a higher value
  • Although 258% increase in conversions on this test, we’re never satisfied Here because you testing – what have you tested? What’s worked for you?
