There are endless amounts of data points companies can analyze when executing CRO strategies.

With optimization technology, you can look for barriers to completion, misplaced calls to action, or other bottlenecks.

Take a look at your Google Analytics account. What percentage of visitors are converting? What percentage of visitors use mobile devices?

CRO strategy should follow a scientific process, backed by data and lead by tech. If you want to increase conversions, use smarter technology that takes into consideration your customer’s situation.

You should also make the chatbot actionable. This can be done by incorporating a live chat feature to support the bot, as customers don’t really like automated replies to important issues.
