revenue per category page visitor
VeggieTales has sold over 70 million videos, 15 million books, and more than 7 million CDs. After they had their site designed and built by another agency, they suspected that the design was causing their revenue and conversion rates to suffer. They turned to Blue Acorn’s optimization experts for strategy and results through testing. Our research into the user experience and their analytics led us to create a variation and a test for three distinct page types: the category page, the product page, and the checkout page.
First, our UX audit noted that large, bright banners on the category pages were distracting customers from finding products they wanted and continuing to the product page. Next, our custom heat mapping tools confirmed that the product pages had poor spacing, distracting attributes, and lacked organization. Lastly, analytics revealed that the cart to checkout success was below average. Using these findings, we created variations, each resulting in significant gains in revenue per visitor.
Social Icon Header Test
The original homepage had a strong call-out for free shipping, which overshadowed the site’s social icons. Blue Acorn moved social icons to the header and built confidence by making visitors aware of the size of the VeggieTales community. Not only did VeggieTales gain more fans, but the variation produced an astounding increase in RPV.
