Conversion Rate Optimization

CRO or conversion rate optimization is the process of changing aspects of your website/sales page to increase the amount of website visitors who become customers.

Simply put; find your website visitors that aren’t converting and fix it. If they are not buying, get them to buy. If they are not providing their email address give them incentive to do so.

Conversion Rate Optimization is the largest influence on your ability to make money online. Even if your website gets a ton of traffic if it does not convert it is worthless, it doesn’t make you money!
