June 22, 2022 | Teemu Raitaluoto

Improving conversion rates on a website is a critical task for any marketer. Higher conversions lead to more sales eventually when traffic is coming from high quality channels. Here are the best tools to boost website conversion rates.

Multiple different solutions today exist to improve conversion rates on a website. These tools can be used separately but they can also be combined to yield the best results. Here are the different tool categories covered in this post.

Website personalization

Content personalization boosts lead generation when visitors see content that is relevant to them. Modern B2B website personalization includes identifying anonymous companies on a website, segmenting them based on customer data, and showing them a version of the website that is the most relevant. Most tools for website personalization also include a visual editor to make changes to a website.

Chatbots / Conversational marketing

Intercom

Intercom is a chatbot tool in conversational marketing that aims to convert more leads by having a customer chat with either a bot or a person. Chatbots are great to capture more intent and understand what the customer needs and wants.

Intercom offers chatbot and messaging functionality that can be triggered when a customer completes certain actions on your website and inside your product.

Hubspot chat

Hubspot chat is a competitor to Intercom chat but lacks similar functionality to Intercom when it comes to creating multipath chat experiences. The best part about the Hubspot chat is its integration with the Hubspot CRM so all your data is nicely in one place.

Heatmaps

Heatmaps are used to show what parts of a website visitors interact with. The heatmap scales go from green to red where red indicates the most engagement by a user. Heatmaps can be used to improve elements that the visitor doesn't engage with.

A/B testing

A/B testing means comparing two versions of a page version and using statistical methods to determine which version converts better. A/B testing as a feature is a staple in many website personalization tools and chatbot tools but is also a standalone product category.

The problem with most A/B testing in B2B is that you need a lot of data to make a validated decision on which version is better. Only if the changes in the version results are dramatic, can the A/B finish quickly.

VWO - Visual Website Optimizer

VWO claims to offer a wider set of tools than any in the A/B testing product category. VWO offers similar features to Crazy Egg and Lucky Orange but is more focused on A/B testing.
