59% of businesses say conversion rate optimisation is crucial to their digital strategy

Three out of five businesses (59%) believe that conversion rate optimisation is crucial to their overall digital marketing strategy, according to a new report from Econsultancy and RedEye.

A further 40% of respondents consider CRO to be ‘important’ (31%) or ‘quite important’ (9%). In contrast, only 1% of businesses believe that CRO is ‘not important’.

This highlights the growing focus on CRO in an increasingly competitive online marketplace, fuelled in part by more advanced targeting and personalisation technologies.

The findings come from the fifth annual Conversion Rate Optimization Report which is based on a survey of almost 1,000 client-side and agency digital marketers.
