Site Audits & Actionable Plans To Optimise SEO & Conversions
We develop short & long-term strategies to identify and rectify areas of concern with your website.
1. Establish Baseline Metrics (Pre-Optimisation Audit & Summary of Findings)
"You can't manage what you can't measure" once said renowned management consultant, Peter Drucker. Knowing what the issues are with your website is the first step towards formulating a plan to fix both your site's technical and sales performance. We perform a number of audits of your existing website, reviewing reports from third party providers about your search engine optimisation and technical performance, this includes reviewing your Google Analytics to uncover popular pages, current visitor sources and also where they drop off your website.
Following our numerous audits, all of which are provided by unbiased, third party sites, we present you with our summary of findings along with recommendations to amend the issues. These recommendations can be as easy as implementing an SSL certificate or it may require more work.
2. Provide Recommendations For Improvements & Implement Changes
We provide recommendations about the strategies we can implement to improve your website. Depending upon the findings from the Site Audits, we may recommend a number of different approaches which we try and tailor to match your budget and short-and-long term objectives.
If your site is reasonably fast to load but is failing to attract customers, we might recommend a SEO campaign to optimise each page for particular keywords and increase the amount of traffic your site receives prior to focusing on page speed and maximising conversions. Conversely, should your site be experiencing high traffic volume yet a high bounce rate from slow loading, we would implement our website optimisation for speed service.
Implementing the various custom approaches to maximise your ROI from your website can vary in scope and timeframe however we provide a clear and transparent set of recommendations prior to implementing our fixes.
3. Conduct Post-Optimisation Audit & Measure Improvements
An integral part of our iterative process of website optimisation is to test, modify, measure and test again. During the process of implementing the changes to your website and its associated hosting and analytics infrastructure, we continually conduct audits to measure the effectiveness of our edits. In some cases, such as the implementation of an SSL certificate, or the migration to a faster hosting service, the changes can be measured in a matter of days, however longer term strategies such as SEO, change of website hierachy or site structure and calls-to-action (CTAs) can take longer to measure.
We provide you with the post-optimisation audits and a report to measure the level of improvement achieved from our website optimisation service.
