Conversion Strategies for SMEs & Start Ups

Make sure your online presence is powerful and persuasive.

Your conversion strategy defines the terms of your online experience. A good one will help you add to your value proposition, integrate with traditional channels and maximise conversion rates.

If you want to maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of your sales and marketing efforts going forwards, you need to know how to use your digital channels to support customer engagement and deliver good customer experiences.

This training session provides an introduction to the elements of persuasive design, data analysis, CRO and personalisation to help you form a cohesive conversion strategy.

You’ll learn how to develop your own conversion strategies to help you attract, engage and convert your visitors. After this training you’ll be able to develop and test conversion strategies for your own audiences.

Each .Course is guided by the people who are taking part, be sure to tell us all about yourself and your ideal objectives beforehand and we'll tailor your digital marketing session to you (and your fellow attendees) as much as possible.
