Last Updated July 8, 2024

If you want growth, you can't ignore data. 😘

One of the key data points is the Conversion Rate ( CVR). πŸ“ŠIt measures the effectiveness of your marketing and your website’s ability to convert visitors into customers. πŸš€

What is CVR❓

🌟 Conversion Rate (CVR) measures the percentage of visitors who complete a desired action on your website. πŸ–₯️ 

This action varies based on business goals, like purchases or newsletter sign-ups. πŸ’Œ

To calculate CVR, divide conversions by total visitors and multiply by 100.  πŸ“ˆ

CVR knowledge helps optimize online presence and drive results. Analyzing CVR data provides insights into customer behavior and areas for improvement. πŸ‘
