But at the end of the day, you see no uptick in the conversion rate of your website. This is disappointing to say the least.
So, what went wrong? You have no clue whatsoever right? Well, probably you have made some silly mistakes and this could be the reason behind this abysmal outcome.
Here in this article, we are going to offer you some tips that can help you see higher conversion rate –
Don’t Make Tall Promises

Rather than making tall promises, you should be writing down the actual facts and figures that you think will impress the viewers.
Call To Action

Use of bright color for CTA button might help you capture the attention of the audience. Make sure you are not using multiple CTA buttons unless it is absolutely necessary. Use of multiple Call to Action buttons will only confuse the visitors. For example, 9Leafs Web Design website has included a simple Call to Action button on the Above the fold section of its each single landing page to increase the conversion rate of the website.
Use Proper Words against the CTA Buttons
Before people click on a button, they would like to know what this button actually does. So, please don’t use some vague word like – ‘Submit’ or ‘Click Here’ because that does not explain what the button actually does. For example, if you are asking people to go to Contact Us page, you should use the following words in the CTA button itself – ‘reach us’ / ‘contact us’.

For example, if you have added too many Plans in the Pricing page, it is not going to help them make a quick choice rather it is going to confuse them. And they might end up leaving the page undecided. So, limit the number of options to three to make it easier for people to make a choice.
