How to get your business ready for Conversion Rate Optimization

Mobile design

1. Focus on mobile design

When your team is planning a new design or campaign — design it, test it, and review it on mobile. This is how most of your audience will experience it.

KPI to achieve

2. Set a KPI to achieve as high of a conversion rate on mobile as on desktop

Divide your mobile conversion rate with your desktop conversion rate and let the "relative mobile conversion rate" help you track how your mobile site is getting stronger or weaker. Since the same campaigns and seasons affect both mobile and desktop, this metric will allow you to only see how the mobile site improves. The average for large ecommerce businesses in the US is 53%* – so set a target of 60% or 70%!
