How Plumbing Websites Can Convert Visitors to Customers (Infographics)

Plumbing websites should be about more than just an emergency phone number and some pictures of vans and smiling plumbers.

It’s competitive to win a localized search on Google, and the job doesn’t stop there. Plumbing websites should be optimized to convert new business, and you should continue to improve upon their results.

What Does it Mean to “Convert?”

CRO, which stands for conversion rate optimization, deals with optimizing your website, sales strategy, and marketing to get a higher conversion rate. That means, more of the people who visit your website “convert,” or take an action towards buying from you. Conversion can take the form of a phone call, a message to your contact form, subscribing to your email list, or booking a job with you through your online booking.

How Marketers Can Improve Plumbing Websites to Convert Traffic

If you’ve ever had a customer engagement effort that’s gone far beyond your expectations, you probably made note of it. Maybe it was timing or design, or even just the action that you hoped those people would complete—say, signing up for an email list and getting a coupon.

The same can also be said of the reverse—those efforts that have bombed. Every last detail has probably stuck in your head, reminding you of what you wish you could have done differently.

Today, there’s so much of our engagement and marketing that’s done via technology and social media that it’s easy to get overwhelmed and let chances for converting as many people as possible go by the wayside. It’s important to track every effort, from the style of writing to the day something emails or posts, in order to figure out what works—and what doesn’t and strive to make improvements. This graphic can help you get started with conversion rate optimization.

How to Continually Test and Improve (A/B Tests)

What headline should you use? Should the button be bigger? Should it be green or red? How many questions can you ask customers in your forms? To test these questions, you create two separate versions (an A and a B sample) and test the performance of each. When a clear winner emerges, throw out the underperforming sample and start again with a new alternative. This is what is called A/B testing. It can go on forever, but this graphic helps to simplify the concept:
