CRO Case Study: Mobile Lead Gen

Avid Demand January 15, 2018

Background:

One of our enterprise clients provides web and application security solutions for global companies. SmartSearch manages highly-targeted digital advertising campaigns across several channels to drive prospects to lead-gen micro-sites that we design, develop, host and continually improve through CRO testing.

Challenge:

Avid Demand (formerly SmartSearch Marketing) has been managing a successful landing page program for this company for more than two years, continually improving conversion rate and lead gen results.

  • Challenge #1: after two years of testing it is difficult to continue increasing conversion rates.
  • Challenge #2: more than 80% of their website traffic comes from mobile devices so success is directly tied to the mobile experience on the landing page.

Solution:

By focusing our CRO test plan specifically on the mobile user, we were able to drive significant,  incremental conversion improvements where they have the largest impact on lead gen results.

Results:

Over a 12-month period we were able to achieve a 63.42% increase in leads (form submissions) for this client’s mobile audience.

Here is a sampling of our A/B landing page tests, focused on improving the mobile experience.
