• Conversion Killers: UX Issues that Cause Customer Conversion Problems

    Conversion Killers: UX Issues that Cause Customer Conversion Problems Online, people are about action. They are checking their phones, visiting websites, and tapping apps with the intention of completing a task that is important to them. The goal of UX is making sites and apps easier to use, so customers can get things done. Conversion rate optimization (CRO) works to increase the volume of visitors that complete a conversion activity online. Examples of conversions include micro-conversions like signing up for a newsletter, downloading an ebook, or listening to a podcast. Macro-conversions include completing a purchase or booking a reservation. Increased revenues are the ultimate goal for CRO. What happens when conversion activities on a website are dropping off or don't seem to be working as intended - is the UX to blame? How can you troubleshoot your site or app to ensure that UX and CRO are working optimally? CRO and UX expert Craig Kistler will review and provide insights into UX issues that cause customer conversion problems. The audience is invited to submit links and examples (prior to the meeting) for live site analysis during the presentation.
