Using Data To Drive More Conversions: Tactical Real Life Example

By: Paul Hickey, Founder and Lead Strategist

I’ve got something for you.

I’ve got a data driven insight that applies to your website. This doesn’t happen every day.

It’s easy to dig into data. It’s much freaking harder to understand what it means. Sometimes it’s nearly impossible to answer the question “so what the heck does this all mean I should do?”

Well, just like anything else, practice makes perfect.

Here’s something I found recently that will generate more leads.

In the last couple months, we’ve implemented dozens of “Cookie Notices” and “Privacy Policy” Pop-Ups on client websites due to GDPR.

In perusing heatmapping data (a visualization of where users click and where they don’t click), we’ve found that an overwhelming number of users are actually paying attention to and clicking the “Accept” button when the notice is placed at the bottom of the website. Like below…

So, to me, an example of using this data would be: “if users are constantly clicking this “Accept” button and actually paying attention to the Cookie’s Notice, let’s replicate this but change the messaging to be something that our business cares about, like our value proposition and a call to action to “Start A Project.”

So, we’ve used this data on our own website, and we’ve implemented this…

This pop-up shows after being on our homepage for 10 seconds. It shows with an animation, and is differentiated in look and feel from the Cookies Notice, as it should be.

You can bet we’ll be A/B Testing this in several ways, and reporting back on what the data shows works best to drive conversions.

I typically say that each individual business needs to perform an experiment to even come to a conclusion like this, but this is one of those rare examples of something that applies to everyone based on this data.

So we turned a very boring, tactical operation (GDPR compliance implementation) into something that will drive more leads for ourselves and our clients.

To Get Started Driving More Leads For Your Clients:

  • Contact your web developer (or me at paul@datadriven.design).
  • Have them / us implement a GDPR notice (if they / we haven’t already).
  • If using a WordPress Site, download and implement a Pop-Up Builder Plug-in on your site like “Pop-Up Builder” (we highly recommend upgrading to the pro version) and build in your message, value prop and imagery.
  • Be sure to set the timer for 10+ seconds (don’t have it show right away), and make sure it shows at the bottom middle quadrant of your site – where the GDPR notice is.

Contact me with any questions at paul@datadriven.design – happy marketing!

Thanks for reading, and have a great day!

VOICE APPS FOR BUSINESS

A Nashville Technology Council Tech Talk
Thursday, January 16, 2020
Tech Hill Commons, Nashville, TN
11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.

The data has spoken. Nearly 200 million people are getting their information from voice assistants like Alexa and Google Assistant, and it’s time businesses built a presence on top of these platforms and started using voice-based apps to streamline their marketing and operations, and increase efficiency and effectiveness. Whether delivering a voice-based version of your company’s website so your audience can interact while walking the dog, an interactive extension of your company’s intranet that employees can check in on while waiting in line at the store, or a training for your sales force that they can take while driving, the possibilities are endless.

Paul Hickey, CEO of Data Driven Design, a Nashville-based digital agency that builds Multimodal Voice Apps for Alexa and Google Assistant, as well as Websites and Custom Software, will walk attendees through how to design, develop and deploy voice-based apps for all Alexa and Google Assistant devices, including those with screens like the Echo Show and Google Hub.

It’s time to integrate voice into your business strategy, and save time, reduce friction, and meet your audience where they are.
