  28. 28. #10 – Cheap call tracking Step 1 : Add a unique phone number on ALL channels (or insert your own dynamic number) Step 2 : For phones, add “Tap to Call” or “Click to Call” • Add Analytics event or tag for phone calls! • Very reliable data, easy & cheap to do • What did they do before calling? • Which page did they call you from? • What PPC or SEO keyword did they use? • Incredibly useful – this keyword level call data • What are you over or underbidding for? • Will help you shave potentially 20%+ off costs! • Which online marketing really sucks? @OptimiseOrDie
  29. 29. #10 – And desktops? Step 1 : Add ‘Click to reveal’ • Can be a link, button or a collapsed section • Add to your analytics software • This is a great budget option! Step 2 : Invest in call analytics • A paid solution (see next slide) • Unique visitor tracking for desktop • Gives you that detailed marketing data • Easy to implement • Integrates with your web analytics @OptimiseOrDie

  33. 33. #10 - So what does phone tracking get you? • You can do it for free on your online channels • It’s really easy to implement on mobile websites • If you have support or sales by phone, you NEED this • My clients typically get 20-60% reduction in Google CPA (cost per conversion) through optimisation • It lets you route, experiment and track all phone contact and outcomes in the call centre • You can finally close the loop on complete online tracking (post call outcome) • The future will involve cloud telephony – get in early!
  34. 34. #11 : Your analytics is broken! @OptimiseOrDie
  35. 35. #11 : Solutions • Get a Health Check for your Analytics – Try @prwd, @danbarker, @peter_oneill or ask me! • Invest continually in instrumentation – Aim for at least 5% of dev time to fix + improve • Stop shrugging : plug your insight gaps – Change ‘I don’t know’ to ‘I’ll find out’ • Look at event tracking (Google Analytics) – If set up correctly, you get wonderful insights • Would you use paper instead of a till? – You wouldn’t do it in retail so stop doing it online! • How do you win F1 races? – With the wrong performance data, you won’t @OptimiseOrDie
  36. 36. How is it working out for Craig? • Methodologies are not Real Life ™ • It’s mainly about the mindset of the team and managers, not the tools or methodologies used • Not all my clients have all the working parts • Use some, any techniques instead of ‘guessing’ • Blending Lean and Agile UX with conversion optimisation techniques is my critical insight from the last 5 years: Belron World Conversion Rate Increase: 2009 +5%, 2010 +10%, 2011 +15%, 2012 +25% Rush Hair (Within 6 months this year) Total Bookings +65% and Phone +58% (£M’s) • Don’t over complicate it.

  37. 37. Is there a way to fix this then? 38 Conversion Heroes! @OptimiseOrDie

  39. 39. So you want examples? Examples of companies putting this stuff together in a good way: • Belron – Ed Colley • Dell – Nazli Yuzak • Shop Direct – Paul Postance (now with EE) • Expedia – Oliver Paton • Schuh – Stuart McMillan • Soundcloud – Eleftherios Diakomichalis & Ole Bahlmann • Gov.uk – Adam Bailin (now with the BBC) Read the gov.uk principles : www.gov.uk/designprinciples And my personal favourite of 2013 – Airbnb!@OptimiseOrDie
  40. 40. #11 : Common problems (GA) • Dual purpose goal page – One page used by two outcomes – and not split • Cross domain tracking – Where you jump between sites, this borks the data • Filters not correctly set up – Your office, agencies, developers are skewing data • Code missing or double code – Causes visit splitting, double pageviews, skews bounce rate • Campaign, Social, Email tracking etc. – External links you generate are not setup to record properly • Errors not tracked (404, 5xx, Other) – You are unaware of error volumes, locations and impact • Dual flow funnels – Flows join in the middle of a funnel or loop internally • Event tracking skews bounce rate – If an event is set to be ‘interactive’ – it can skew bounce rate (example) @OptimiseOrDie
  41. 41. END SLIDES 42 Feel free to steal, re-use, appropriate or otherwise lift stuff from this deck. If it was useful to you – email me or tweet me and tell me why – I’d be DELIGHTED to hear! Regards, Craig.
