The Great Landing Page Optimization Fairy Tale • We Changed the: – – – – – Font Type Spacing Button Color Image Etc. • We got a 5% Increase in Conversions!!* Larry Kim (@larrykim) #wordstream
Typical Conversion Rate Optimization Test • The Early Lead Disappears! • We want to believe our hard work paid off but we are often deluding ourselves… Larry Kim (@larrykim) #wordstream
Conventional Landing Page Optimization is Over-Rated • Small Changes Result in Small Changes • The x% Increase you think you got probably isn’t significant! Larry Kim (@larrykim) #wordstream

But You Don’t Need Dozens of Landing Pages… Larry Kim (@larrykim)
Epiphany #6 A Note on Mobile Ads
Calls Radically Change The Flow! • The calls bypass the landing page all-together (a very leaky step!) • Furthermore the intent behind a call is much stronger than a click to a website • Calls converted at a 3x higher rate than clicks to a website • Click-to-Call = Insane Landing Page Optimization!! Larry Kim (@larrykim)
Epiphany #7 F%@# Conversion Rates*
Eh? WHAT?! Larry Kim (@larrykim)
Note Definition of Conversion Rate** • Conversion Rate = (# of Completed Actions / Total Visits to a Page) • Beware “Landing Page Optimizations” that merely exchange quantity for quality • Generating more, lower quality leads could hurt, not help your business! Larry Kim (@larrykim)
A Quick Recap 1. Most Landing Page Optimization = Rearranging Deck Chairs, Small % Changes (Often Insignificant) 2. Insane Landing Page Optimization = 2-5x Changes AND improve lead quality, too. Larry Kim (@larrykim)
