Tomasz answers our questions about conversion rate optimization from the perspective of eCommerce professionals.

Regarding the CRO Team and Sponsors

1) What does your ideal eCommerce CRO team consist of?

The team composition varies with the company. However, there are a few key members that every CRO team consists of (or should consist of):

  • A CRO manager who looks over the entire program—from strategy creation to website analysis and A/B testing
  • A design professional
  • A developer who can create functional test variations

The scale of the work of a CRO team mainly depends on website traffic. The objective is to make use of the entire website traffic always. Therefore, the greater the traffic, the larger a CRO team needs to be. Zalando, for instance, had a sizeable CRO team. I cannot disclose the exact number but there was a large number of CRO managers working on the entire website traffic. The web analytics team was also huge, working  on the minutest of details on the website such as product sorting algorithms. There was also a user research team that was in charge of qualitative research; the team used methods like usability labs, prototyping, focus groups, user interviews, and so on. As Zalando was operating in 15 markets and had a dedicated mobile website, the large size of the CRO team was justified.

2) Who should be the owner of a CRO program in an eCommerce organization?

The ownership of a CRO program should remain with someone from the higher management who understands the business impact of CRO. This person is the sponsor of the program. With understanding of the business impact of CRO, the sponsor doesn’t necessarily have to exhibit knowledge of all the nuances of CRO. The sponsor could be the VP of Marketing, or the VP of Product.

Sponsorship is necessary to ensure proper delivery of resources to a CRO team.

Regarding Coordination with Other Teams

3) Does a CRO team require help from other teams in an eCommerce organization?

One team that works closely with a CRO team is Marketing (especially, the customer acquisition department). The KPIs of the marketing and CRO teams are often aligned. The input of the marketing team is quite valuable—they know the product and the behavior of the customers.

The customer support team also plays a crucial role in highlighting pain points across a website. This team acts as a channel for customer feedback and helps a great deal in developing hypotheses.

A CRO team also needs to have the product team on its side. The product ownership mostly lies with the product team and their buy-in is essential. I know a few organizations where the product team has a “Conversion Lead” who acts as a bridge with the CRO team.

Regarding the CRO Process

4) What is the CRO process that you follow?

The process typically consists of the following steps:

  • Studying the quantitative and qualitative data of a website
  • Identifying problem areas on the website
  • Developing hypotheses that aim to address the problem areas
  • Creating variations per the hypotheses
  • A/B testing the variations
  • Analyzing the test results and sharing it with the team

Here is a graphic illustrating the process we follow in Peaks & Pies:

5) How do you build a hypothesis?

I use website analytics tools such as Google Analytics to look for optimization opportunities across a website, for example catalog pages, product pages, and the checkout page.

When certain webpages are identified for optimization, these undergo rigorous analysis. I first check if a webpage has the essential eCommerce features (such as a recommendation engine on the home page) or not. If a certain feature is missing, we have got an opportunity for optimization. I use heatmaps and click-tracking tools to find elements or a functionality that require optimization. Gathering user feedback, taking help of usability testing labs, and checking out competitors’ websites are other ways of creating strong hypotheses.

I first check if a webpage has the essential eCommerce features (such as a recommendation engine on the home page) or not.

6) How do you prioritize A/B testing hypotheses?

I think a simple prioritization model like PIE—Potential, Importance, and then Ease—can work well for beginners. I personally like the model that is based on Potential, Confidence, and then Ease. This model gives a chance to the CRO team to take into account its past experience. A more sophisticated model can also include “political impact” as a criterion.

Moreover, prioritization needs to be a collaborative task to be successful. To estimate the “potential” of an A/B test, you might require the help of your marketing team. Similarly, the developers and designers can help you estimate the “ease” part.

7) What is the next step after hypothesis creation?

The next step is the design and development of a variation per the hypothesis.

However, before the variation is tested against a control, it must go through a thorough “quality assurance.” I think quality assurance is crucial for highly effective testing, but it is not emphasized enough in the CRO industry. You must make sure that all variations of an A/B test are free of bugs and issues.

Consider this: You are trying to improve a page that is already very optimized. You aim to achieve a humble 5% improvement in the conversion rate. If the variation doesn’t work for 5% of your traffic (because you forgot to optimize for mobile users or Firefox users), your test will invariably fail.

I think quality assurance is crucial for highly effective testing, but it is not emphasized enough in the CRO industry.

8) Is sales or revenue always the primary goal of your tests? Or do you look at micro conversions?

I would say the metrics or KPIs you are tracking should always answer your hypothesis.

In some cases, it is quite simple to track the revenue metrics (for instance, while adding new payment options on the checkout page). But in most cases, you have to track a combination of micro and macro metrics.

9) How do you analyze your A/B test results?

To derive valuable learning from a test, we need to conduct a thorough analysis.

I look at both micro and macro goals to get a better context of the results. I also dig deeper by analyzing the test results for different traffic segments. For instance, I compare test results for new visitors versus returning visitors. You need to deal with a concept called novelty effect. Your returning visitors, when encountering a test variation, will recognize the changes on the page and might hold strong feelings about it (similar to how people strongly respond to major changes happening on Facebook or Instagram). However, new visitors will be unbiased with your test variation and would interact without any prejudices. Another set of segments that is relevant to eCommerce is mobile and desktop visitors. The behavior of both kinds of users can vary significantly.

I dig deeper by analyzing the test results for different traffic segments.

An analysis is always followed by summarizing the test results and recommending a plan of action. You check if the hypothesis was valid and whether you need to implement the winning variation or run a follow-up test.

10) If you find that conversions increased for new visitors but decreased for returning visitors, what do you do?

You need to derive learning from the test and realize why the difference in user behavior exists. For example, this could be happening because of an offer for your new visitors such as “10% off for new visitors.” While the new visitors would be encouraged to shop on the website, the returning visitors might feel like they are not being offered the best deal and feel cheated. Your next step would be to set up a system to identify new visitors and display the “10% off on first order” deal exclusively for them. You can additionally have a loyalty program in place for your returning visitors.

The goal of CRO is to not just have winning A/B tests, but also gain more knowledge about your users so that you can provide them a superior experience. Think about the bigger picture—the entire eCommerce ecosystem. If you find that your close-up product pictures work better than zoomed-out ones, you can communicate this idea to your display marketing team and help them create better ads. If you find that the “free delivery” offer works better than a “10$ free voucher,” you can share the knowledge with other teams such as customer support and product.

11) How important is a long-term A/B testing calendar for high-traffic eCommerce websites?

I think a long-term A/B testing calendar is essential for any kind of website. You need to have a prudent approach; clearly define all the tests that you can conduct, along with the time that each test is going to take.

Think of time as a resource. If you are not testing all the time, you are wasting opportunities to optimize your website (the same time that your competitors might capitalize to move ahead of you). With a long-term calendar, you can easily identify time slots in which you can fit quick A/B tests and utilize all your resources effectively.

Here is a sample template that I would use as my CRO roadmap (you can access the template here):

Example Testing Roadmap Peaks Pies Google Sheets

12) How important is a knowledge repository of past A/B tests?

A knowledge repository is crucial to make your CRO program effective. It helps you know what works for your users (and what doesn’t) and helps you create better tests in the future. It is also used to introduce newcomers to the testing culture of an organization.

With every test you perform, it is important to document the details. You can start with a simple Google doc, and later get a sophisticated and comprehensive spreadsheet. Share the document with the entire CRO team so that everyone is on the same page and can avoid repeating any mistake. When the number of stakeholders is large, you can even think of a weekly/daily newsletter.

I usually archive my test results for every quarter.

Regarding the Nuances of eCommerce Conversion Optimization

13) Which eCommerce webpages do you think are key to a CRO program?

All of them. It’s important to go through the complete customer journey and find optimization opportunities. The most common customer journey path is from the home page to the catalog page to the product page to the cart page, and finally to the checkout page. Of course, there are other customer journey paths as well.

It’s important to go through the complete customer journey and find optimization opportunities.

However, a good CRO manager should always be able to identify low hanging fruits. I have seen that home page is the most tested page of eCommerce websites—mostly because it attracts the largest amount of traffic. Next in the list are product pages. These pages have a lot of traffic from channels such as affiliate partners and display ads. Third in the list are the register or login pages of websites.

14) With a large amount of traffic, how long do you run a test?

It is necessary to run an A/B test until it delivers a statistically significant result. However, with eCommerce websites, it is also important to consider the business cycle. For instance, the business cycle for fashion eCommerce is about one to two weeks. So even when a test delivers results in a few days, you need to run it for an entire business cycle to derive useful learning.

15) How many A/B tests do large eCommerce enterprises roughly run on a monthly basis?

That completely depends on the scale at which an eCommerce website is operating.

Large eCommerce enterprises like Zalando easily generate a traffic of millions of visitors in a single day. For example, Zalando had traffic from numerous markets and it could allow even 100 tests to run at an instance.

16) How does a festival season or a “sale period” affect a CRO process?

I have a good amount of experience working with fashion eCommerce. I’d say that the sale period definitely has an effect on their CRO process. One of the main goals in a sale period is to clear out the inventory. This is when the principle of “urgency” is deployed heavily in CRO campaigns.

This is when the principle of “urgency” is deployed heavily in CRO campaigns.

For other eCommerce websites, the heavy-traffic period can be markedly different. For example, I am working with an eCommerce enterprise that sells premium alcohol. The on-season period for them is winters when people tend to stay at home more and buy alcohol (for personal consumption or as a gift). As a result, this enterprise is focused on optimization activities more during the winter season.

All You Need to Know About eCommerce Conversion Optimization | An Interview with Tomasz Mazur

How to Get Top Management Buy-in for a Conversion Rate Optimization Program

Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) is gradually becoming a known concept across enterprises, globally.

And, as more and more enterprises become aware of the benefits of CRO, you would expect that most of them are putting CRO to practice.

Unfortunately, that is not the case.

Many organizations still haven’t included CRO in their “growth activities” suite. Even among the few organizations that are practicing CRO, more than half don’t have a structured or documented process in place. Moreover, a lot of these organizations have little or no budget allocated for CRO.

This clearly indicates that the top management at enterprises are not yet convinced about the effectiveness of CRO.

If you are trying to introduce a CRO program in your organization, this post is for you.

We have listed five key ways through which you can influence your top management to buy into CRO.

1) Highlight Improved User Experience as a Double Win

Improving user experience is one of the top objectives of many organizations. Talking about the same can get your management’s interest in CRO.

Conversion rate optimization, in essence, is all about improving user experience. The underlying principle is that if a website offers unmatched user experience, visitors would convert more. (For example, nameOn improved user experience on its “cart page” by removing distracting CTAs, and saw an increase in conversions by 11.40%.)

CRO aims at helping you simplify every task that users have to complete on a website. Creating prominent call-to-action buttons, removing distracting elements, and streamlining navigation flow — these and other similar actions to help users complete a task quickly and improve user experience.

A superior user experience helps an enterprise in many ways. Some of them are mentioned here:

  • Better customer acquisition and retention because of a higher satisfaction level of visitors and existing customers.
  • Greater word-of-mouth publicity because of a higher satisfaction level.
  • Reduced overhead costs; minimal spend on support because visitors face less issues navigating through a website.

Now, we know that measuring user experience can be difficult — it’s not a quantifiable unit. Still, there are metrics that can indicate an upgrade in user experience. One such metric that you can use is Net Promoter Score, or “NPS.” This term is simply derived by asking users this question: “How likely is it that you would recommend us to a friend or colleague?” You can monitor NPS for your business before and after the implementation of your CRO program. If there’s an increase in NPS, it’s safe to assume that the user experience also improved.

2) Present a Competitive Analysis

Sometimes, “the competitors are leveraging it” can be the one reason that can help you influence the top management for starting a CRO program.

Or better, you can convince your bosses by showing industry leaders (or, companies that they admire) practicing and winning by using CRO.

You can start by building a list of companies that your bosses look up to. Next, analyze the tools these companies use for website analytics and optimization. Tracking the tools used by these companies should not be difficult: You can take the help of Built With or Datanyze (or any such software) used by the companies in your list. (You can even employ browser extensions such as Ghostery to identify tags of different web apps that are active on a company’s website or app.) Shortlist the companies that are using tools for website analytics, A/B testing, user behavior analysis tools, and so on. The software mentioned above can also give you an idea about how much these companies spend on CRO technologies. The higher the spend, the more involved the companies are with CRO.

Additionally, you can search for CRO-related case studies involving these companies. In fact, case studies that highlight CRO activities in any company from your industry can be effective in influencing the bosses.

3) Stress the Gaps in Your Current Approach

Often, the top management in enterprises is under the impression that its teams are already working on optimization. They, possibly, see CRO as a part of marketing team’s responsibility. The truth, however, is that a CRO program relies as much on marketing as it does on IT.

The essential members of a CRO team typically consist of the following:

  1. Strategist: Focuses on managing the program and deciding the goals. Usually knows the most about conversion journeys, personas, and persuasion design. Owns the KPIs.
  2. Analyst: Looks at the data before and after an A/B test, connects it with other important data sources, and helps everyone understand the test outcomes.
  3. Conversion Centered Designer: Focuses on conversion centered design.
  4. Copywriter: Someone who’s great with the written word and can write to reduce anxieties, ease friction, and persuade and delight visitors.
  5. Developer: To help you run your tests with optimized front-end code and send events or record goals in your analytics software.

A single team member can many times take up more than one of these roles. Nonetheless, the lack of any member possessing these skills in a team can lead to a substandard CRO program. Such a program might or might not deliver favorable results, that is, increased conversions. What is equally important is the (timely and transparent) coordination among these team members. The same can be ensured by having a documented CRO process in place.

A documented process helps you create a long-term calendar of CRO activities and sort these on the basis of their priority. Without that, you might end up conducting low-priority A/B tests that have little effect on the bottom-line. Another major risk is missing out on the learning from the first CRO activity and, therefore, not applying it to the later activities. (For instance, without a structured process, you might not archive the learning from a failed A/B test. And, because of that, you might continue creating A/B tests that run on hypotheses similar to the one that failed.)

Get your bosses’ attention to all such gaps (and possible pitfalls) in the existing strategy and practice regarding CRO.

4) Show Them the Money

For many enterprises, the marketing budget is majorly spent on traffic acquisition through channels such as pay-per-click (PPC), social media, and SEO.

However, it’s always difficult to generate satisfactory return on investment (ROI) from such channels.

  • It’s a tough task to ensure the desired quality of traffic through such sources. Users that are not your target audience can also visit your website through these channels. (The “targeting” options can be specific only to a certain point).
  • It’s not under your control on how you perform across these channels over a long period of time. For instance, a change in a search engine algorithm or an increase in cost-per-click on a PPC platform can always spoil the result/ROI of your traffic acquisition efforts.

CRO, on the other hand, lets you improve your sales figures by working on something that you’ll always control — your website. CRO aims at increasing the number of conversions from the existing traffic of your website. (Many times, even a small increase in the conversion rate impacts the revenue significantly. For example, BrookdaleLiving.com managed to increase its monthly revenue by $106,000 because of a modest improvement of 3.92% in the conversion rate.)

Now, while pitching the idea of CRO to top management, it is essential to highlight the forecast of such improvement in sales and revenue.

Kieron Woodhouse, UX Head at MVF Global, shares how financial projections helped them start their CRO program: “It’s important to speak to different parts of the business in a language that’s appropriate and tailored to their requirements. The commercial part of the business will expect a detailed analysis of how following a CRO program could positively impact the business. At MVF, before our CRO team was created we put forward a detailed financial projection of all of our top performing landing pages and estimated potential uplifts of 1%, 5% or 10% as a result of our actions.

This approach made the decision very easy for the commercial part of the business to understand and meant we had their complete support before the project began. Of course, it’s also important to have multiple scenarios to help pre-empt performance and manage expectation.”

5) Show Them the Data

It is always easy to convince the top management when you back your pitch with data. And with CRO, you get all the data that is needed.

The success of a CRO program can always be measured on the basis of quantitative metrics — sales and revenue, or micro and macro conversions.

Performance of a CRO program measured on the basis of data
Performance of a CRO program measured on the basis of data

This is in contrast to some of the brand-related campaigns that run on other channels such as PPC and social media. Often, those campaigns work on “improving the brand value,” the ROI of which can seldom be measured.

Further, the whole process of conversion rate optimization is scientific and is based on informed decision-making. There is little room for guesswork.

You use website data and user behavior patterns to identify the pain points on your website (and areas where the conversion rate can be further improved):

When traffic on your website is not converting, you fix the pages with the highest bounce rate and exit rate. When visitors don’t click a specific CTA button, you observe visitor recordings and heatmaps to identify the elements that are proving to be a distraction. When you do not get enough visitors to fill your website forms, you run a form-analysis to check which form fields cause friction. When you are not sure what is stopping visitors from converting on a web page, you employ an on-page survey to learn about that. The use-cases of CRO are endless.

Arguably, the best way to convince your bosses about the benefit of CRO is by showing them a quick but effective A/B test. (Don’t have an A/B testing tool? Start with VWO’s free-trial.) Use methods similar to the above to identify optimization opportunities that have the highest potential for improvement. When you succeed, share the results emphasizing the improvement in the bottom line. This is bound to get you your bosses’ attention.

Angie Schottmuller of Three Deep Marketing suggests, “Tests with interesting results quickly get management attention, and an addictive demand for more testing invariably follows.”

Nate Shurilla, CRO consultant at iProspect Japan, reveals a similar approach they follow: “We typically do a trial run before full-out testing.  We’ll do a little analysis of one page and come up with a small test or two, and then show the results in our full pitch.  Explaining how we can then replicate and expand upon those results site-wide usually gets them on board, especially when they see how even a little jump in CVR has huge effects on their revenue.”

Final Thoughts

Importantly, keep building your case for the need of CRO.

In the words of Jacob Baadsgaardfounder and CEO of Disruptive Advertising, “Don’t pitch once and back off if the idea isn’t immediately accepted. Challenge yourself to view this situation as your own CRO effort on converting your manager/boss! Those that are persistent and back it up with good data will win in the long run so don’t give up.”

Cheat Sheet: CRO Plugins You Can Install In Under 30 Mins

At Crazy Egg, we talk a lot about the things you should be doing on your website to optimize your conversion rate.

But have you ever read one of our tips and thought, “Well that’s just dandy, but how do I actually make that happen on my website?”

For some of our recommended strategies, like better headline writing, CTA placement, or streamlined navigation, it only takes a bit of intentionality and testing to nail down. From a practical standpoint, you can do everything yourself.

For many of our recommendations, however, you can’t do anything without the right tools.

That’s what this post is all about: the right tools.

This isn’t a list of the best tools for CRO (yeah, Neil’s already done that). This isn’t a list of the most in-depth or comprehensive plugins.

Every tool on this list fits the following criteria:

  • Can be completely installed and running in under 30 mins
  • Free or low-cost
  • Compatible with WordPress websites
  • Will significantly boost your conversion rate immediately upon install

Okay, time for your cheat sheet.

1. SumoMe’s List Builder Popups

I could have populated this list entirely with SumoMe products. They’re that good. And they’re all either free or low-cost.

To start off, I want to highlight SumoMe’s List Builder app which works as a popup tool.

sumome-list-builder-popup

In addition to being 100% free, this app is easy to install and, best of all, highly effective at converting visitors into email subscribers.

After installing it on Uncompromised Men, a men’s blog I work with, their subscription rate shot up by 523% and their email list more than quadrupled in just 4 months! That’s pretty crazy, but it’s hardly breaking news.

The benefits of popups are well-documented. From a strictly CRO perspective, they are a no-brainer. Premium options can run you anywhere from $30-$100 for a monthly service or $50-$200 for a single-purchase plugin.

SumoMe’s List Builder offers a simple popup with a high degree of customization options for free. You can’t include a picture without coding it in, but the results I previously cited, as well as many of those mentioned in this Crazy Egg article, show that even simple text popups can dramatically increase your conversion rate.

2. Crazy Egg’s Hello Bar

Banner ads tend to be the highest priced advertising option because everyone sees them. You can’t miss the big prominent image at the top of a website.

Hello Bar, a product of Crazy Egg, allows business owners to apply this concept to their inbound marketing efforts.

jacob-mcmillen-copywriting

As you can see, the bar is noticeably prominent at the top of your website. It can utilize a simple “Click Here” CTA button, as shown above, or it can easily be configured to directly collect emails within the bar itself.

It takes less than 10 minutes to set up, and this simple little bar gets results. It accounts for 11% of Neil Patel’s revenue and 20% of Kimberly Snyder’s.

Go ahead and try it out. For optimal results, play around with a few different headlines or offers and see what converts best.

3. SumoMe’s Responsive Share Bar

I’m going to highlight one more product from SumoMe, because this app is pure gold.

Your conversion metric probably isn’t social shares, but more shares equals more engagement equals more conversions, so I’m going to stretch the topic just a little, because you need to see this.

sumomo-share-bar-conversion-rate

Now, there are a ton of social sharing options out there. At first glance, you might wonder what makes this one special.

For starters, everything you need in a share bar is included for free. Second, it looks good and stays out of the way of your content without any tinkering required (this is far less common than one would imagine).

But most importantly, SumoMe’s Share app will significantly boost your mobile shares.

How? Most share bars are static and not optimized for mobile. Check out how SumoMe’s share bar looks on your customers’ mobile devices.

Screenshot_2015-01-26-13-21-44

Unlike most share bars, this one is fixed to the bottom of a user’s mobile screen. It scrolls with them as they read and allows them to easily share at any time.

With mobile internet usage overtaking desktop usage in 2014, it’s officially time to start optimizing for these users. SumoMe’s Share bar lets you do just that. Bryan Harris saw his share count double after installing the app.

It’s free. It’s easy to install. It’s definitely worth trying out.

4. KingSumo Giveaways

A well-designed giveaway is a surefire way to blow up your subscription list.

Bryan Harris used a giveaway to land 2,239 emails in 10 days. Josh Earl landed over 60,000 emails through hosting a giveaway in the same amount of time. WWRD increased its subscribers by 11% using a sweepstake, and noted that customers acquired via the giveaway had a 21.7% higher order value than the site-wide average.

Giveaways work, but only if you add this one, very specific feature.

You have to give participants an incentive to spread the word.

If I’m entering a sweepstake, the more people that join, the less my chances are of winning. UNLESS you give me a disproportionately greater chance of winning with each new participant I sign up.

This is the feature that KingSumo Giveaways provides for you. It takes less than a minute to set up, so you’ll spend more time coming up with the right prize than you will setting up the giveaway.

buffer-conversions-giveaway

Lifetime use of this application costs $197, but given the ease of use and the results you can see with it, I consider it to be low cost.

If you haven’t hosted a giveaway yet, do it now. It’s the lowest hanging fruit on the tree.

5. Standard WP Text Widget

When it comes to posting opt-in offers on a website, I’ve fumbled my way through far too many broken plugins, complicated themes, and not-quite-there APIs.

I was constantly on a search for that elusive plugin that would let me design a simple sidebar or footer opt-in. A few months ago, I realized I had been making this way too complicated.

High-converting opt-in offers are as simple as a single JPEG in your standard WP Text Widget.

You don’t need to mess with coding in your design. You don’t need to fuss with APIs. You don’t need to limit your theme selection to something that works with a given plugin.

Just design an image and throw it into your text widget. Let’s look at what you can do with this.

instant-access

Here’s a sidebar opt-in I designed for a coaching blog. It shows an image of the ebook and a CTA button. It has everything you need and clicking any portion of the image takes you straight to the email subscription form.

Alternatively, here’s what it looks like as a footer opt-in.

footer-optin

Simply create a new image and you’re good to go. There’s no need to find and download a new plugin.

This Doesn’t Have To Be Difficult

I’m an avid reader of marketing topics, just like you. More often than not, I come away from great articles overloaded with information and trying to figure out how I can work in the concepts and strategies over the next year.

Rarely do I take immediate action on something I read.

My goal for this article is to give you something you will implement in the next 3o minutes. If you aren’t using any of the tools listed here, you should be.

Who doesn’t want a higher conversion rate?

I promise you, these literally only take a few minutes to install. Marketing success doesn’t always have to be difficult.

Go set them up right now and then come back and share your results with me.
