Higher revenues & conversion rates

The homepage was this stores highest trafficked landing page, but as a launching off point to the rest of the website it was suffering. We took the highest searched terms through site search usage and created homepage tiles to assist users in getting to where they wanted to go as soon as possible. We also de-optimised the homepage for phrases that were not bringing the client any revenue, freeing up space on the page to focus on driving sales.
Improving the homepage as a launching point for users entering the funnel and optimising for more accurate search terms led to a 26% drop in sessions but a 97.34% increase in revenue and a 144% increase in Ecommerce Conversion Rate. This proves that traffic now entering the site is far more qualified and worth more to the client.
