The conversion rate is the percentage of page visitors who fill out and submit a form. The rate measures how successful the form is. A higher conversion rate means more recruitment leads or sales leads.
Verbiage affects conversion rate, in the content and in the form. Even the wording on the form submission button can affect the conversion rate by over 10%! We work to make sure every aspect of our SMART pages lends to helping the user get in and convert.
With our SMART pages you can control and filter who makes it through the form. We know there are important criteria your leads need to meet, so our forms can filter out the leads that don’t meet your needs, so you don’t have to.
The shorter a form is, the better it’s conversion rate. Reducing a form by one field, can increase conversion by over 30%. With our SMART pages, we work with you to help condense your form to get as many quality leads as possible.
