When you run an eCommerce store, a higher conversion rate translates directly to higher revenue. That means that if one idea can bump up your CRO even a fraction of a percentage point, you’re looking at some serious potential revenue growth.

 

That’s why we’re so focused on constantly testing, iterating and improving our client’s conversion rate optimization strategies, and with this list of 120 CRO tips, we suspect you’ll become just as obsessed as we are. We’ve sorted all of these tips for you according to difficulty level, time commitment, cost, and potential impact. What’s more? Over 50 of them are completely free to implement.


1. Create an exit intent pop-up to turn abandoning visitors into subscribers

Here’s a simple solution to every digital marketer’s worst nightmare: cart abandonment. Program your pop-ups to target exit intent, which means that when the customer looks like they’re about to leave your site, they immediately see a pop-up requesting their email instead. This idea is very fast to implement, but the impact is surprisingly high!

 

Difficulty: Beginner

Time Commitment: >1 Hour

Cost Level: Affordable

Impact: High


2. Broadcast messages with Facebook Messenger Bots

If you haven’t fully explored all your Facebook options yet, this one is easy to miss. By leveraging Messenger bots, your business page can talk to customers directly and provide all of the benefits of email marketing, but with an added touch of personalization and intimacy. Once you set up the bots, you’ll be amazed to see how quickly this trick will boost your conversion rates.

 

Difficulty: Intermediate

Time Commitment: >1 Hour

Cost Level: Affordable

Impact: Medium


3. Add a CTA to your thank you page and increase post-opt-in engagement

When someone opts in to receive communications from you, redirect them quickly to another section or feature in order to convert them to a sale. Use a Call-To-Action (CTA) button or graphics to maintain momentum and keep potential customers engaged.

 

Difficulty: Beginner

Time Commitment: >1 Hour

Cost Level: Free

Impact: Low


4. Assign a unique target keyword for each post and page

This tip is so easy, but oh-so-crucial. Assigning unique target keywords is an important habit to adopt, and this simple, free, and fast change could start making a difference in your conversion rates immediately. Frankly, this strategy is a no-brainer – what are you waiting for?

 

Difficulty: Beginner

Time Commitment: >1 Hour

Cost Level: Free

Impact: High


5. Create country-specific landing pages for your product or service

If your product or service is offered internationally, it’s time to start thinking about localization and location-based targeting. Creating a custom landing page for each country, language, or region you sell in makes your company better suited to convert across all levels.

 

Difficulty: Advanced

Time Commitment: <1 Week

Cost Level: Affordable

Impact: Medium


6. Complete an internal links audit

An internal links audit may sound like a tedious chore, but considering how fast and inexpensive (ie: free!) to implement, it can make all the difference.  After all, all it takes is one broken link to send a frustrated potential customer to your competitor’s website instead.

 

Difficulty: Advanced

Time Commitment: >1 Day

Cost Level: Free

Impact: Medium


7. Use pop-ups strategically on relevant pages

Adding Pop-ups to individual pages on your site can increase conversion and target different members of your audiences at just the right time. If your site offers a wide variety of products or services, this strategy may be especially appropriate and effective.

 

Difficulty: Intermediate

Time Commitment: >1 Day

Cost Level: Affordable

Impact: High


8. Implement account-based marketing

This tactic can prove to be a potential goldmine if you're in the B2B space. Instead of casting a wide net with automated messages, focus on your target customer with personalized ads on LinkedIn. This strategy is better suited for services with a higher price point and smaller target market.

 

Difficulty: Advanced

Time Commitment: <1 Week

Cost Level: Expensive

Impact: High


9. Get featured on podcasts

Podcasts might be the most underrated link building strategy on the planet. Unlike guest posting, podcasts offer a higher barrier to entry that translates into more qualified, well-defined leads. If you know of a podcast that targets your market perfectly, try to get featured as a guest. Let your expertise speak for itself and increase brand trust and awareness along the way.

 

Difficulty: Advanced

Time Commitment: >1 Day

Cost Level: Free

Impact: Medium


10. Search domains that visited your site and send personalized chat messages to the site owners

Here’s another great strategy to try out if your company is in the B2B space. If you have access to your site’s visitors list, you have access to your potential customers. If they haven’t left their email, you may decide it’s worth doing some sleuthing to find out which companies are showing initial interest, and how you might be able to reach out.

 

Difficulty: Advanced

Time Commitment: <1 Week

Cost Level: Affordable

Impact: High
