Conversion Rate Optimization

What is Conversion Rate Optimization?

Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) is the art and science of getting online visitors to perform an action you want. Whether it is buying your product or signing up for your e-mail list, CRO is the easiest and cheapest method for you to increase the amount of times this happens.

Why Conversion Rate Optimization Matters

Would you rather buy 1,000 additional clicks to your website or would you rather earn 1,000 sales? They are not the same thing! Making it Click teaches you Conversion Rate Optimization methods so that you can focus on getting the most out of the visitors you already have instead of wasting money by buying more useless traffic.

 

Key Principals of CRO

Unlike other channels of online marketing, Conversion Rate Optimization can be broken down into about half a dozen highly actionable methods. Learn our processes so that you can improve the performance of all of your pages.

 

How to Design a Website for Conversions

SEO is not simply a matter of paying the consultant with the highest fees, it is a matter of doing the work that will influence your specific search market.

 

Why Does it Matter?

Why do SEO if you can just pay Google to rank higher in the sponsored results? A good question. A better question may be how often do you click on the sponsored results. Our guess is not nearly as often as you click on an organic result. SEO, as opposed to paid search marketing, affects organic search results. This means you see your results improve in the area of search result pages where people are clicking most often.

Search results on Google are quickly evolving. Learn what to look for, how to react and what the many changes of Google likely mean for your evolving marketing plans. (Don't worry, it is not as scary as it sounds!) The Internet moves quickly, Making it Click will help you keep up.

 

Where Searchers Click

This seemingly simple question actually has an extremely complicated answer. Making it Click will teach you why this is and what you should do about it. Not all clicks are created equally. You need to optimize your online marketing efforts and this online course will teach you how.

Google Search Network

Normally when people think of ads on Google, they think about the ads presented on Google search result pages. This platform (the Google Search Network) is actually only a small piece of Google's total ad real estate.

 

Google Content Network

The larger part of Google's ad real estate is on the Google Content Network. This network is made up of standardized ad space on millions of different websites around the web. While these ads typically don't convert as well as the Search Network, they are normally priced much cheaper.
