Copywriting for More Conversions (2/2)

Room 2

This fast-paced, practical workshop shows how your copywriting can have a direct impact on reader behaviour, sales and the client’s bottom line, drawing on loads of ‘before and after’ web pages where copy made a difference.

Once, conversion rate optimisation (CRO) was a hot new business buzzword. Today, it’s standard practice for any ecommerce website.

In this workshop, experienced digital copywriter and CRO expert Mel Henson explains:

  • The five stages of a CRO process
  • Tools and techniques used by web optimisers
  • Understanding a wireframe
  • The role of copy and microcopy in CRO

Case studies include how adding nine words to a web page got an 18% sales uplift, and how changing the structure of product copy led to a 32% sales uplift.
