Every client is unique and every solution is therefore different. But a ‘typical’ project process would follow these core steps…
Working With Us
With 25 years experience, working with the Impact team is like having your own dedicated digital growth department. We’ll crunch the data, create the strategy and execute the split tests for you to systematically optimise your websites, campaigns and marketing workflows.
How We Work
The first step is to work out where you are right now and what we can do to help make the biggest, fastest Impact.
We work with you to understand what ‘great’ looks like. What do you need to achieve? What are your KPI’s? What does an MQL, SQL or sale mean to your business?
From here we can lay down the foundations of your strategy roadmap – we won’t have the solution yet, but we will know exactly what end results need to happen and when.
The next step is to find out what your prospects are doing and why they aren’t converting from your current marketing.
We use a combination of quantitative data tools to do this, first from your web analytics and marketing automation platforms and then adding in heat-mapping technology, click tracking, and session recordings to give us the full picture.
Our consultants are experts at analysing all of that data to understand, with pinpoint accuracy, where all of the problems are.
Understand The People Behind The Clicks
Data can only ever tell you what the problem is and where it is located – to find out why it is wrong (and, crucially, how to fix it) we need to understand the psychographics of the people you’re selling to.
A fundamental part of the Conversion Architecture methodology is taking the time to get to know your customers and prospects better than they know themselves.
Using advanced qualitative research such as surveys, interviews and front-line workshops and our own neuro-mapping heuristics we create your conversion-focused Personas: common segments of your target audience that share common goals, thinking and psychological profiles.
The Strategy Roadmap
Our Strategy Roadmaps combine everything we’ve learned about your business and customers: what the problems are, where they are, why they’re wrong for the audience and how to fix them.
Our consultants will use all of that data to create the hypothesis and testing calendar, based on the potential impact of the test, importance of the page in each of your funnels and how complex the changes will be to implement.
This enables us to simultaneously conduct tests through multiple funnels – while always going for the improvements that have the largest potential impact on leads and sales.
Design & Copy
An experienced conversion-focused copywriter and UX designer will then work closely with your optimisation consultant to design every web page, microsite, email and landing page.
When it comes to CRO, copy is often king. Because it’s 70% responsible for someone converting, we always start with getting the copy perfect for each Persona and then design around it.
We’ll then wireframe everything (and stress-test those with further user testing) before creating brand-compliant designs that will fit seamlessly in with the rest of your site and other assets.
Our developers have a deep understanding of all the major A/B testing platforms and decades of experience that let us build split tests with unparalleled speed and precision.
Our team not only have all the development and coding skills that you would expect, but the required commercial acumen to understand each test and find the right technical solution to drive the biggest revenue impact.
And, of course, everything they do goes through a rigorous QA process, tested across browsers, screen sizes and major devices to ensure all your visitors get the right experience
Test, Analyse, Test Again
With Impact, CRO is a constant cycle of testing, analysing and re-testing that should never stop until you reach conversion-perfection – and have utterly dominated your market.
Everything we implement to help you improve conversions gets launched as an A/B test. We insist upon this level of transparency so you can rapidly see if we have been effective.
Of course, the data gets fed back into our learnings and strategy roadmap, directly influencing the copy, design and thinking of subsequent tests. This continual learning feeds constant conversion increases, which is power of having a long-term CRO strategy.
What you can expect
The Impact Guarantee
NONE of our clients have ever lost money – and we don’t intend to change that.
You will always get more back than you invest in our services – that’s the Impact guarantee. If our CRO campaigns didn’t get the returns to cover our fees, then we will carry on working at no cost until they do.
It’s never happened yet, but still nice to know it’s there.
Who We Work With
From exciting start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, we’ve worked extensively across most B2B industries, but our main focus and passion is in IT and Tech.
The key is that all our clients are committed to getting serious about growing their sales and conversion rates – and are ready to make the changes required to achieving that goal.
Industries we’ve worked in:
- IT Hardware Manufacturers
- Software and SaaS
- Solutions Providers and Integrators
- Consumer Tech
- Reseller/ Distribution Channels
- Banking & Insurance
- Hospitality & Travel
