“We had previously engaged with some of the biggest UX and CRO agencies in the country but it felt like they hadn’t even been on our website. Speaking to you guys, you’d already identified some issues on our very first call. We knew we were talking to the right people."

What are the benefits of doing CRO?

Conversion rate optimization (CRO), also referred to as conversion optimization, is the process of understanding what drives and blocks a user from making a purchase or specific action on your website. Once we have insight into your users’ pain points, we can use A/B testing to find the best possible solutions that encourage more conversions, revenue, and long-term profit. 

What type of business?
We provide CRO services for medium to large enterprises. You’ll need at least 100,000 unique visitors per month to your website. If you’re a smaller company, check out our conversion research service.

What’s the commitment?
Our conversion rate optimization programs start from 10,000 USD per month on a 12-month program. This includes everything from analytics audits and maturity assessments to user research and test execution. You’ll work with our team of CRO strategists, designers, developers, QA, and project managers to execute your program.

We’ll audit your testing and analytics tools to ensure we have reliable data. We also learn more about your business and the current process for running tests.

Kick-off

We bring together people from across your business, sharing knowledge about the program, and aligning the testing objectives with wider business goals.

CRO Maturity Audit

We evaluate any existing CRO program in terms of;

●  Strategy & culture
●  People & skills

We give your team access to CXL training courses to help fill any gaps in their conversion optimization know-how.

Ideation sessions

We develop creative test treatments applying UX design principles and consumer psychology to give your experiments the best chances of success.

Research

A range of research methods are used based on our research aims. Insights drawn from the research are used to create hypotheses for testing.

Ongoing experimentation

We get down to testing straight away in the first month of working together. Going through cycles of building tests, QA-ing, and post-test analysis. We’ll share the results in experiment scorecards, or a testing knowledge base, that we help you create.

Prioritization

Using the PXL framework we objectively prioritize the hypotheses and create your testing roadmap.

Conversion Rate Optimization FAQs

Why is conversion rate optimization important?

Conversion rate optimization is important for several reasons:

● CRO is a scientific and systematic method used to improve revenue.
● It prevents you from doing something that harms conversions or wastes resources on things that don’t have a positive impact. 
● Enables you to understand your customers at a deeper level.
● Promotes data-driven decisions rather than decisions based on gut instinct.

What is a realistic conversion rate?

Your conversion rate depends on a variety of factors, which range from your industry, types of products or services, price point, brand, traffic sources, and user experience. For this reason, it’s difficult to define a realistic ‘one-size-fits-all’ conversion rate. 

The main thing is to ensure you are progressing and moving forward each day. Plus it’s important to remember that your conversion rate is a good guide metric but it doesn’t always lead to higher revenue which is why it’s important to measure other metrics around revenue, profit, AOV, etc.
 

How long should you run A/B tests for?

Our experiments typically run for one to two business cycles. We recommend running tests for a full week at a time, so for example 7, 14, 21 days, etc. But this is always customized based on the test and client. Before we run a test we will calculate the minimum detectable effect or MDE which is the smallest change we can significantly measure, typically with a confidence level of 95%. This helps us to calculate the amount of traffic and conversions we need to see in each of the different variations for the test to be concluded

What ROI can I expect?

Our main goal here at Speero is to make your customers happy and give you the best ROI we possibly can. We aim to provide you with 2-5 times your investment. 

Our experience speaks for itself. We have worked with clients for over 6 years, who are still getting ROI as a result of working with us.

What is the conversion rate optimization process?

Our conversion rate optimization process starts by performing in-depth conversion research. We use a range of research methods from our ResearchXL methodology. This helps to identify pain points and areas of friction. 

We then form hypotheses based on our analysis of the data and prioritize them keeping the customer and business impact in mind. 

Next, we create innovative test treatments that call on our consumer psychology and user experience design expertise, giving each experiment the greatest chance of succeeding.

Following this, we focus on increasing the number of experiments we run and learnings we make, as well as upskilling internal teams and improving the culture of data-driven decision-making.

Which metrics should you track in conversion rate optimization?

Conversion rate optimization is quite a misleading term because it isn't just about conversion rates. If you only focus on the number of conversions, you might find you also increased returns or decreased AOV–negatively impacting revenue or profit overall.

Therefore you should always track conversion rate alongside a range of other important metrics. Learn more about CRO metrics here.

Should CRO be a one-off project or an ongoing project?

Conversion rate optimization should always be an ongoing project. If you’re not moving forward you’re falling behind.

CRO allows you to push past your competition and hopefully encounter the fun problem of hitting your local maximum (and working out how to move way beyond it.) 

Speero works with many advanced CRO clients who have been optimizing their experiences for years. We can help you innovate and continue to push the boundaries of your existing experience.

What is a test hypothesis?

A hypothesis is an assumption. It usually follows this format, making it testable and measurable;

If [we do X], then [we expect this result], because [the rationale based on research insights].
