Conversion Rate Optimization FAQs
What types of conversions should we be tracking on our website?
The two main types of conversations that you should track are micro and macro. Micro, or secondary, conversions focus more on website engagement. Examples include using a tool, watching a video, downloading a white paper, subscribing to a newsletter or creating an account. Macro conversions are the primary actions that you want visitors to do like purchasing a product, calling your business, filling out a form or subscribing to a service.
If you use Google Analytics, you can set up conversion goals and events to analyze trends and see performance. Tracking micro conversions is important since they can lead to a macro conversion. Thus, you can see what brand engagement elements your visitors prefer.
