Visitor Behavior Analysis – 6 Must-Watch Webinars to Improve Website Experience

8 Min Read

Digital NRG, a marketing agency based in the UK, discovered that one of its clients was facing poor engagement and low conversions on their landing page. 

Now, there are a lot of factors that can lead to this problem – slow load time, page glitches, poor content quality, bad website experience, and so on.

However, instead of relying on assumptions, Digital NRG analyzed visitor behavior on the landing page with heatmaps and session recordings to understand how visitors were interacting with the page.           

This approach revealed a significant number of dead clicks above the fold, which prompted the agency to insert an additional CTA button in this section. 

This simple change boosted visitor engagement and led to an increase of 133.8% in the conversion rate of the landing page.

The importance of visitor behavior analysis   

When it comes to website optimization, brands often track a few common metrics like bounce rate, percentage of visitor drop-offs, time spent on a page, clicks on CTAs, and so on.  

However, as we saw in the case of Digital NRG, these metrics fail to reveal the underlying motivations and desires that drive visitor actions. 

This is where behavioral analytics comes into the picture. It is a useful method that involves conducting qualitative research to understand visitor behavior. 

With a good behavioral analytics tool, you can observe heatmaps, watch session recordings, create AI-powered surveys, and analyze form interactions to get deeper insights into visitor behavior and build an impactful website experience.

If you are still unsure about the benefits or implementation, we’ve uncovered some insightful and value-driven VWO Webinars that will help you learn more about the importance of visitor behavior analysis.
