Success Story

Penn Foster Logo

Penn Foster Uses VWO To Improve Conversions By 202%

Headquartered in Pennsylvania, US, Penn Foster is an online college dedicated to helping students achieve their goals through affordable and accessible learning. We got in touch with Elizabeth Levitan, Digital Optimization Specialist at Penn Foster to learn how they've been using VWO to improve their students' learning experience.

Their primary objective was to generate more enrolments from Penn Foster's paid search campaigns for their brand traffic

The Challenge

Baseline conversions on paid search campaigns were below expectations and industry benchmarks

  • Despite paid brand campaign traffic being more valuable, lower-funnel traffic, it was being sent to their main website homepage.
  • Exposure to a lot of information was overwhelming potential learners, causing them to bounce off without enrolling.

The Hypothesis

Send paid search traffic to a better targeted page

  • Previous tests showed that the best way to increase enrolls was to send paid search traffic to a more consolidated page instead of Penn Foster's main website homepage.
  • The Penn Foster team hypothesized that creating a separate landing page with a high mobile speed score and more targeted information would deliver a more relevant experience to the visitor.
