It can mean the difference between obtaining x2 or x3 of income with the same amount of visitors. Think on how much sales do you have per week. Now multiply or triple it. By now you are starting to understand that spending time optimizing the funnel is well worth every efford. In fact, big retailers over the Internet spends millions every year in their experiments and tests for optimizing their own funnels for a higher conversion rate.

The SEO consultant can help with conversions (percentage of visitors who become customers) if from the outset the consultant who plans the ranking strategy is very clear as to what are the keywords that will most help our client to attract quality traffic.
A must while thinking about conversion is asking: will I hire my own business services by just just looking at the web page?. Does it encourages you to purchase? Is it well structured and offers information better than your competition?.
1. Attractive and professional design.
A professional look to any company’s web site is essential to achieve that our client wants to hire us. Do not seek a very abstract web design, services offer them people, therefore… smiling images of people across the site inspire confidence.
If your website is an on line shop, be sure to access your clients with different payment methods, options and outstanding customer service so they can get in touch with the supplier of the service in the event of any incident. Similarly, to enhance conversions, do not forget the “calls to action” and the proper use of Landing Pages.
2. Load speed
It is one more of the approximately 200 criteria which takes into account Google for web positioning, because Google interprets that this factor is directly related to the user experience. It is a very important factor for ranking this days. Think about how many times you have abandoned a site because is too slow to load. On the other hand, think how pleasant it is when a site loads fast. And neither one of us wants to experience lag when we are trying to finish a purchase in any Internet store.[/one_half_last]
The loading speed of the web depends essentially of the optimization of the web itself and secondly of the quality and type of hosting that we use to host our web. If you pretend to build a professional project, you need a professional hosting.
To analyze the loading speed of your web, your can use services like Gtmetrix. They generate a report with the tasks already done and those ones that you still can implement to increase your loading speed.
