Clients Report Increased Conversions and Revenue

“Our clients that participated in the Mobile Optimization Initiative got to take advantage of higher conversion rates in some areas. This program allowed them to see the importance of “big data” vs just a theory.”

“The Mobile Optimization Initiative has given us an opportunity to explore A/B testing in-depth with the support of some fantastic platforms and businesses. One client found they could make £15k extra a month simply by applying 3 winning tests, another is using the results to influence designs for their new website build. It has been beneficial for every single one of the clients that has joined.”

– Sophie Alway, E-Commerce Product Manager, Gene Commerce

“We have a client that re-platformed to Magento 2 and sales dropped by 75% in the first 2 months. We were able to identify where visitors were dropping out of the sales funnel and improve the problem area (checkout process). Sales are now exceeding revenue before the switch. Other clients have seen sales grow substantially after identifying improvements during the Mobile Optimization Initiative.”

“Every client we have put on the Mobile Optimization Initiative has seen a positive impact to their business. It reinforces the think→act→reflect cycle. Rather than just implementing what seems like a good idea, it encourages them to refine ideas. We love it! It’s a great initiative that we stand behind!”

“Some merchants are on the edge with signing with our agency. This gives them a small window of what it would be like working with us. This can be a great push and also is a great product to have in our pocket. We LOVE the Mobile Optimization Initiative. We bring it up to most if not all clients/potential clients.”

– Patrick Johns, Channel Manager, RedStage

Clients Value the Insight-Driven Approach

“It’s not just the single merchant in a silo comparing themselves to themselves. They have insights from hundreds of other merchants to demonstrate the likely win or fail of a strategy — and that is extremely valuable to our clients.”

– Shannon Kelly, Director of Sales & Marketing, Creatuity

“The Mobile Optimization Initiative has given us a focused understanding of Mobile Optimization and Conversion, allowing us to share information with our developers, our UI/UX designers to create an overall better product for our customers. We have benefitted from developing insights on mobile optimization and shared it to our customers with impactful results.”

– Ali Ahmed, CEO, Imagination Media

“The Mobile Optimization Initiative has provided our clients with valuable data and insights into the changes they can make on their site to boost AOV and revenue. Seeing the anonymous data from merchants who have or are participating in the Mobile Optimization Initiative, allows clients to see what has worked in the past or what is currently working before making a decision on what to test.”
