CRO Services Definition

CRO stands for Conversion Rate Optimisation and it means to optimise the percentage of web ¦ mobile app ¦ site Visitors that convert into Customers (also known as V2C conversion).

Within milliseconds we need to tell Visitors…




In other words WIIIFM = What Is In It For Me

The truth is that a bit like SEO CRO can be a graveyard for ambition unless you work with people like GRO.TEAM. You will have wasted a lot of money upstream in the funnel if you don’t actually convert your Visitors into Customers that BUY your product ¦ service and achieve the commercial results you want and need…

Our Visitors Need The Right Intent

Unless we are creating site visitors with the right underlying intent we will be wasting a lot of money and time…the most optimised landing page in the world will not convert someone looking for Umbrella by Rhianna into an online umbrella purchaser.

If we have done a good job upstream in the funnel and potential purchasers of our product ¦ service are arriving at our site ¦ app then all we need to do is convert them.
Once a visitor arrives at the site ¦ app we have milliseconds to answer What’s In It For Me? Without the visitor needing to scroll downwards (“below the fold”).

We need to help the visitor understand two main things;
1. The benefits (not features) that our product ¦ service offers to them.
2. Why they should trust us.

If we achieve these two things then the visitor will not leave (“bounce”) and our chances of a successful conversion have increased…

Why People Buy

Fundamentally purchasing is an emotional exercise that people then like to explain ¦ self justify with facts and a logical rationale.

To encourage the purchase of our product ¦ service we therefore need to create the right emotional triggers and provide the logical framework to underpin the purchase.

Sales theorists will tell you that fundamentally people buy to move closer to pleasure or further away from pain so these are the emotional buttons that we need to push.

What Does Good CRO Look Like?

We have seen conversion rates as high as 30% for single focus web sites receiving well managed visitors with good intent (such as “Apply for PPI”) but 5-10% is more realistic and achievable for less one dimensional products ¦ services.

As a wise person once said…always be learning…

Apple's Use Of CRO

As we said above…people buy emotionally and then self justify logically.

To encourage and facilitate conversion and purchase we need therefore to trigger a response at an emotional level in our visitors ¦ readers.

To do this there are visual and audio triggers ¦ cues that are proven to be much more effective than alternative approaches.

Let’s look at the current https://www.apple.com/uk/ homepage for some inspiration…

Apple Home Page

Apple's Use Of Power Words and Positive Cognitive Dissonance

At first sight the blue “Learn more” “Buy” copy looks a bit out of place.

The site has a nice grey/white/black palette and blue doesn’t really match.

This has been done very deliberately though to increase the cognitive dissonance (attention grabbing contrast) and a lot of research says that blue is the most “trustworthy” colour. (Hence the raft of blue company logos these days).

The words in Capitals (“Lots”, “Less”, “Love”, “Learn”) (another cognitive dissonance technique) are all Power Words. Our brain responds more actively to words like Love even if we don’t consciously notice that.

I don’t think it’s coincidence that all these words begin with the same letter either, research shows that we’re 30% more likely to remember alliterative phrases or in other words phrases that start with the same sound e.g. Peter Piper, Grab Your Growth, Coca-Cola, American Airlines….

Grab Your Growth…give us a call to get the power of cognitive dissonance and power words working for you…

Does CRO Really Work?

CRO does work but it takes a lot of experience and skill to avoid pointlessly adding your hard earned money to an unscrupulous agency’s revenue line…

Anecdotally across the industry it appears that only about 10% of CRO campaigns have a positive ROI (they generate more additional profit than they cost) but at GRO.TEAM 100% of our CRO campaigns have a positive ROI…otherwise we stop doing them…

What's the Best Approach To CRO?

It takes a lot of work end-to-end to make CRO campaigns work…the right intent needs to targeted…the user experiences need to be very carefully constructed…

It takes a lot of experience to take potential customers all the way along a purchasing journey without losing them somewhere and there are plenty of opportunities to fail…

Give GRO.TEAM a call…we’re been there and done this…we only run profitable campaigns…

Top Tips From Conversion Rate Optimisation Experts...

Prove IT

Reviews and other types of "social proof" are essential in getting site visitor trust. People need reassuring that they will get what we are promising them..

Look For Win/Win

Be seen to exchange rather than extract value from people...it must be clear that our product ¦ service makes things quicker, better or cheaper for our visitors...

Push the right buttons

We need to send the right signals and push the right emotional buttons to encourage purchase...blue is considered the most trustworthy colour, female faces are the most effective visual cue, Power Words such as Free, Limited, Fresh and so on stimulate a higher emotional response than other words...

Make Buying Simple and Easy

It sounds obvious but it's easy to forget to keep your What and How SIMPLE

"Simple can be harder than complex: you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains..." Steve Jobs

We used GRO.TEAM to iron out internal issues with CTOs, they also helped us to revise our way of working and helped us with a very successful growth hacking campaign. They took us through a full consultation assessing what was and wasn't working internally - they also helped with internal mentoring for some of our staff. Overall - exceptionally good service and a fantastic business to work with.
