What Is an Analytics Review?

Google Analytics is an invaluable tool that digital marketers use to evaluate the performance of their websites. It tracks important information about website visits, including how many people are visiting the site, where they’re coming from, and their demographics. It is also very valuable for conversion rate optimization services.

In our initial conversion rate optimization analysis, our team will go through your GA reports to determine where your website needs improvement. Then, we’ll recommend a course of action that will maximize your online impact.

We’ll start by looking at your Audience report to learn about the demographics, interests, and behavior patterns of your most frequent visitors. That will give you insight into the type of people who take an interest in your brand.

Next, we’ll look at the Behavior report to see which pages on your site are the most popular. You’ll use that information to build on what works by continuing to produce the kind of content that transforms curious visitors into paying customers.

We’ll also set up goals with the Conversions section of Google Analytics. Then, we’ll split test different landing pages and calls to action to improve your conversion rate.

Once goals are set up, our conversion rate optimization service experts will make sure that all of your landing pages and funnels are converting on all devices.

Finally, we’ll also review your exit pages and the pages with the highest bounce rate. We’ll let you know which strategies aren’t working so that you can leave them behind in favor of more successful options.

What Is a Desktop Conversion Rate Optimization Audit?

Although it’s the Mobile Era, there are still plenty of people who visit websites with a desktop or laptop computer. That’s why you need to ensure that your site is optimized for desktop traffic. The Ignite team will do a full conversion rate optimization review of your desktop website.

  • Reviewing your desktop website entails:
  • Making recommendations on your images, text and calls to action.
  • Review the Google Analytics in-page analytics report and reorganizing pages.
  • Recommending conversion rate tests.
  • Making recommendations on designs.
  • Creating urgency in your landing pages and using advanced strategies such as timers.
  • And more…


What Is a Mobile Conversion Rate Optimization Audit?

At this point in the Information Age, you’ll lose market share if you don’t optimize your website for a mobile audience. That is why the Ignite Visibility mobile conversion rate optimization service is highly in-demand.

Worldwide, more than half of all Google searches happen on a mobile device. Also, there are more mobile users than desktop users.

You simply can’t afford to ignore customers who might visit your site with a smartphone or tablet.

Also, as is the case with desktop, your mobile rank will suffer if your site is slow or user-hostile. That will further limit your reach.

We’ll go over your mobile reports from Google Analytics to ensure that you aren’t losing customers to poor design, messaging or a sluggish site.

We’ll also use Google tools to ensure that your site is user-friendly and passes the requisite speed tests. If it fails in either case, we’ll provide you with a step-by-step course of action that will help you reach mobile users.

Our full mobile conversion rate optimization service results in a 20 page analysis of your site, that will increase your conversion rates.

What Is a Funnel and Checkout Process Review?


The whole point of your digital marketing effort is to bring people into the sales funnel and then gently lead them all the way through it. We help with that as well.

For starters, we’ll look at how you’re reaching people in your target market. We’ll recommend options that will not only boost brand awareness, but also give you the best bang for your buck with a healthy return on investment.

Once people arrive at your site, we’ll pore over the analytics to determine which landing pages are most successful at converting them into paying customers. We’ll also spot trends so that you can focus solely on strategies that are most successful.

We don’t stop there, though. We’ll also provide you with a thorough analysis of your checkout process and offer actionable insights to limit shopping cart abandonment.

Most importantly, we’ll provide all of this information after analyzing your site from both a desktop and a mobile perspective. That way, you can be sure that your site is optimized for visitors on any device.

Funnel analysis is a very important conversion rate optimization service.

Recently, during a funnel review we found a client was getting zero conversions from Samsung Galaxy S6. After reviewing the funnel analytic metrics for this device, and reviewing the website, we found a clear issue on the website. Once resolved, the client immediately started making over $50,000 more a month.

What Is Ongoing Conversion Support?

One of the biggest mistakes that people make in digital marketing is that they think they’ve finally “arrived” with just the right sales strategy and don’t need to put any more effort into it. The reality is that even the best marketing campaign requires constant oversight and analysis. This is also true with conversion rate optimization services.

That’s why we provide monthly audits of your conversion metrics. We’ll show you what’s working and provide recommendations that will help you increase sales.

Also, our team of in-house digital strategists is constantly keeping up with the latest trends in online marketing. We’ll use our knowledge to put the latest bells and whistles on your site so that you’ll stay ahead of the competition.

We also know that it’s best to never “settle.” That’s why we’ll offer split-testing alternatives in an effort to uncover strategies that give you an even higher conversion rate.

Finally, we’ll always look for ways to tweak your site with call to action options, different layouts, alternative color schemes, and any other subtle changes that will ultimately increase your income.

What Is Split Testing?

In marketing, it’s never a good idea to make assumptions. It’s always best to test alternatives so that you can determine which option works best.

Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, it’s easy to perform split testing (sometimes called “A/B testing”) on websites. Web developers simply write code that shows half of the site’s visitors one marketing strategy while showing the other half an alternative strategy.

Then, digital marketers use analytics tools (such as Google Analytics) to determine which strategy brings in the highest conversion rate. Obviously, the strategy that wins becomes the “go to” option.

We’ll help you with split testing by evaluating alternatives to everything that might impact your conversion rate, including:

  • Landing page design
  • Call to action text
  • Call to action placement
  • Call to action color
  • Copywriting
  • Timers, images, messaging and more

And once we’re done, we’re not done! We’ll constantly run split tests in an effort to find just the right mix of design and text that maximizes your sales.

What Is a Landing Page and Site Review?

An important part of CRO is to make sure that your site is designed so that it appeals to people in your target market. We help with that as well.

First, we’ll look at your individual landing pages. We’ll make sure that they each answer the question that the customer is certainly asking: “What’s in it for me?”

Next, we’ll go over landing page design. We’ll offer tips on everything from color schemes to font sizes so that you can maximize conversions.

In addition to that, we’ll check the rest of the pages on your site. We’ll make sure that visitors who decide to browse before they buy appreciate its user-friendly design.

We also understand the importance of brand management. That’s why we’ll recommend a site design and layout that properly reflects your brand and leaves visitors with a positive impression.

Finally, we’ll develop visitor models based on brand personas. Then, we’ll use those models to produce website aesthetics that are in line with your overall marketing strategy.


How To Do Link Building For SEO and
Actually Get Results


Did You Know We Made "SEO: The Movie"?


John Lincoln, CEO of Ignite Visibility, made a documentary film on search engine optimization.


5 IMPORTANT Questions for Your SEO Company // STAY IN THE KNOW

1. How Do I Find SEO Services?

Although no two SEO companies are the same, the best of them share several characteristics. Above all else, look for a company with experience. There’s no certification or level of education that’s a substitute for years of digital marketing success. Next, find a company that keeps up with current changes in SEO. Search engines are always evolving and tweaking their algorithms. Great companies stay on top of those changes and adjust their strategies accordingly. Finally, look for a company with great references. Choose a partner that has a long history of providing outstanding customer 2. service.

2. How Does an SEO Company Work?

The company handles the day-to-day work of ensuring that your website ranks well in the search engines. That way, you can focus on more important things, like growing your business.
When you hire an agency like Ignite Visibility, you’re outsourcing your search strategy to a partner. That partner will monitor your rank and suggest changes that will increase your visibility to people in your target market.

Typically, your SEO company will handle both types of SEO:

  • On-site SEO – making sure your website is designed to rank well with search engines
  • Off-site SEO – creating a backlink profile that will give your site more authority

3. Why Should I Hire an SEO Company?

If you have plenty of free time on your hands and not a whole lot to do, you can certainly tackle SEO services all by yourself. That’s probably not the case, though. If you’re like most entrepreneurs or managers, your overworked and stuck with a backlog of action items that you still haven’t handled. That’s why you should outsource your SEO responsibilities to a reputable company. Then, when that company is handling your SEO, you can take those other priorities off your plate and work on building your business.

4. What Should I Ask an SEO Company?

There are a number of questions you should ask when interviewing an SEO company that you’re thinking about hiring:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Who are some of your high-profile clients?
  • Can you provide me with some references?
  • What kind of reporting do you provide?
  • How will I know if I’m getting my money’s worth?
  • What are the latest trends in SEO?
  • Do you offer a free site audit?
  • Do you have any experience with businesses in my industry?
  • What kinds of strategies generally work for businesses in my industry?
  • How do you keep up with the latest changes in SEO?

5. How Much Does It Cost to Hire The Best SEO Company?

There’s an old saying: you get what you pay for.If you hire a cheap, fly-by-night company, you’ll save money but you probably won’t get much value. In some cases, those cheap companies rely on link schemes that could get you into trouble with Google. Note: you do not want to get into trouble with Google. Instead, open up your wallet and pay for a quality service. The actual amount you’ll spend depends on the size of your business, your website traffic, and your overall needs. Expect to pay hundreds, and maybe even thousands of dollars every month. SEO companies charge between $100 a month and $100,000 a month depending on the scope of the projected. Most our clients pay between $4,000 a month and $100,000 a month. Many of the larger ones have significant services, technically issues that require expertise, an international presence or need a substantial team. In some cases, they are large franchisees or multi-location businesses or have multiple websites that need to be managed. We provide custom services for these business and large teams, that is why the price gets so high. Your price could be more in the $4,000 to $20,000 range depending on your needs and goals.
