Conversion Optimization Tips Infographic
There is no magic bullet, no golden ticket that can ensure your online retail success. But there are a few things that can help. ZippyCart.com has put together an unmissable infographic of conversion-optimization case studies, and it offers plenty of tips that are worth both time and consideration.
The first case study looks at headlines and whether abstract, intellectually driven or emotional, fact-driven words will spur your viewers to buy/click/follow you down your yellow brick road. The result? A factual, concrete headline that tells your viewer exactly what they will get is far more successful than trying to lure them in with hype and hand-waving. The graphic also offers some great design-related tips.

As the analytics come in, you can see whether your traffic matches the consumers you are after and look at where they are in the buying process.

This information allows you to customize your content to convert the traffic that enters your site.
