Experiment MM0103: Homepage Evolution That Has Increased Video Plays and Lead Capture


Our customer came to us and asked if we could help improve their return on a mature Pay Per Click (PPC) campaign which had started to show signs of flagging. The ROI, whilst healthy, was lower than previous months and required some investigation. We looked at the marketing funnel end to end and realised that the site required an update. So we overhauled the homepage and all inner landing pages to improve flow and conversions. Below are examples of the artwork as the job progressed, we have shown the before, after and updated homepage as we are continually A/B Split testing to allow us to measure and continually improve the PPC campaign return.

Before we started the update their video would autoplay whenever you were on the homepage, a major source of lost traffic. Also the page was not totally focused on the benefits to the customer of engaging the services of this company and was leaking traffic from bounce rate and other areas.

At Launch

Here you see the initial launch phase of the project: we take the site, add our main changes and then once the main website improvements go live the testing starts. We begin with a simple test, making changes to headlines, calls to actions and some elements on the page and see how visitors react.

The final screen capture shows progression with changes to the headline value proposition, the play button and secondary value proposition underneath the main image. Note also where the form is located, not in prominent position next to the main image. Testing any design proves its worth.
