WooCommerce: 5 Ways To Drive Sales In Your Store

The primary goal of your WooCommerce store is to sell, right?

You’ve probably got some snazzy marketing campaigns running, are working to sharpen your SEO tactics, and are using social media to bring more visitors to your store. But, while driving traffic to your site is important, there’s another key metric you need to keep in mind: your conversion rate. After all, what’s the point of bringing visitors to your store if they don’t end up buying anything?

It’s a no-brainer that more traffic is useless if it’s not bringing you more conversions. The key, then, is to focus on doing more with the shop visitors you already have

This is where website analytics (such as those collected and stored by Oribi Analytics) can be a game changer. 

Oribi is an analytics tool that’s designed to help businesses of every type and size increase their conversions. Once connected, Oribi translates your store’s data into actionable insights, empowering you to make smarter, data-driven decisions independent of developers and analysts. Rather than drowning you in endless reports, Oribi shows you the next steps to take to maximize your marketing campaigns, streamline your sales flow, stay on top of your site’s changes and trends, and much more – all completely code-free.

Oribi takes the guesswork out of optimizing your conversion rate. Oribi tracks every event on your site, provides full marketing attribution, and shows you where your best opportunities for conversions lie. Identifying bottlenecks in your main flow, learning which kinds of content work best for your site, and keeping tabs on which channels drive the most revenue are some of the most important steps on your path to shop optimization. And, Oribi makes it all a cinch! Read on for Oribi’s top 5 CRO hacks for WooCommerce users.

1. Map Your Top Funnels

The starting point for any optimization is to identify your bottlenecks. Using Oribi’s Funnels feature, map out your top funnels—checkout flow, newsletter sign-ups, whatever it is—making sure to get really specific with the steps.

Since Oribi automatically captures each of your steps, adding them to the funnel takes only seconds. Once you’re done, you’ll be able to pinpoint exactly where your prospects drop out.

Is there a big drop between clicks on “Add to Cart” and those who enter the checkout? Try displaying your “Checkout” button more prominently, or try retargeting these users with an email campaign to bring them back.

2. Discover Which Content Drives the Most Sales

Creating content is time consuming. Why spend precious time producing content that doesn’t drive sales? Oribi’s Event Correlations can quickly tell you which content works best, and which content to skip.

For example, if you’d like to see whether your blog readers are more likely to buy than visitors who don’t make it to your blog, Oribi’s Event Correlations will show you exactly that.

Create several correlations like this, and you’ll have a clear understanding of what content to consider removing from your website and what to create more of in order to drive up those sales.

3. Understand Where Your Revenue Comes From

In upping your conversion game, it’s essential to always keep track of the revenue you’re bringing in. With Oribi’s Revenue Analysis, you can easily understand changes in your revenue, know which days bring the most sales, and see breakdowns in revenue by channel, platform, UTM, location, and session.

Armed with this vital information, you can update your marketing campaigns accordingly and make sure you get the most bang for your buck.

4. Allocate Your Budget to the Right Channels

Speaking of marketing campaigns: your customers may visit your store via multiple channels before making a purchase. Oribi gives you full marketing attribution, designed specifically to show eCommerce users how much revenue each channel and touchpoint generates.

You can even find out which of these channels performs best as a first-touch, last-touch, single-touch, or assist channel, which can make a world of difference when investing in retargeting campaigns.

5. Learn From Cart Abandonment

You already know that Oribi will show you at which steps of your sales funnel visitors abandon their carts, but what’s even cooler is that you can also follow these steps for individual store visitors.

Oribi’s Visitor Journeys show you every step your customers take on your site, how long they spend on each step, where they come from, what products they buy—or add to cart and don’t buy—you name it. It’s like peeking over your visitors’ shoulders and seeing your shop through their eyes.

With Visitor Journeys, you can better understand what’s working well, or what needs your attention. 

Ready to get to work?
