Providing a compelling reason for someone to take an action will always win over presenting an action and expecting someone to take it.
Taking Action over Seeing Action
Lead acquisition is more than just attracting visitors; it`s a tactical blend of science and creativity. It involves guiding website visitors toward your digital goals through optimised content and journey mapping, focusing on improving visitor quality and engagement to drive meaningful actions.
Compelling action versus “having” a call to action is the difference between acquiring a lead and saying farewell to an anonymous visitor.
Value & Integrity over Waffle & Respect
Trust is a critical component of successful conversions. Your website should serve as a beacon of trust, with every element — from customer testimonials to transparent service terms — reinforcing your credibility and establishing integrity. There are many trust-engendering things you can do on landing pages that can start your trust journey – and you should do them as a top priority.
Clarity over Complexity
In digital marketing generally, it`s always better to be clear than to guess. You`ve got to spell out your solutions so they match what your visitors are looking for. This way, your message doesn`t just meet their first expectations but also gets them more involved in your sales journey.
We often see things getting too complicated – whether it`s too much content, tricky wording, over-the-top design, or confusing calls to action. Remember, keeping it simple is key.
Proposition before Expectation
As someone enters one of your landing pages following a search, you engage them as a means to move them closer to your capture action. That’s all your initial levels of engagement, from staying on the page to consuming your initial engagement proposition, is trying to do. After that, it`s about exchanging value – something that`s quite challenging to pin down – and that`s where split testing often comes into play.
Your lead capture proposition is the pinnacle of your landing page. Split testing helps you to see what works best.
Intuition over Complexity
A seamless user experience is key to successful conversions. An intuitive interface, straightforward navigation, and explicit calls to action with compelling reasons to take it are key. These should combine to create a user journey that is not just easy but also engaging and enjoyable, bridging the gap between attraction and retention.
Insight over Guesswork
Informed decisions are at the heart of conversion optimisation. Regularly analysing user behaviour and incorporating feedback are essential to understanding what resonates with your target audience. This approach transforms guesswork into a data-driven strategy, essential for ongoing improvement and success.
