Across industries, conversion rates are stalling—or falling—and it takes more traffic to convert fewer people. Technology keeps improving. Broadband penetration continues to rise. Still, websites are converting like it’s 1999 (2.4%, by recent estimates). Making matters worse, traffic cost inflation is coming to an advertising budget near you; it’s become progressively harder to buy our way out of poor online planning with overpriced keywords.
B2C’s say they want traffic, but what they really want is more business. Whether you sell flowers or plasma TV’s, the mad dash among ecommerce sites to get more clicks often isn’t worth running. Wouldn’t it be great if you anticipate customer motivations and boost revenue without depending on analytics guesswork to call the shots?
If you think your ecommerce site is helpless compared to big-budget competition, think again. By crafting and analyzing Persuasion Scenarios for your customers, you can help visitors buy from you on their terms—funny, since those are the only terms they’ll accept—and generate multiples of ROI. By modeling customer behavior with Persuasion Scenarios, you can fix holes in your sales process by understanding your customers’ buying process.
