Clicktale: Click maps
A click map is a visual representation of aggregated data showing where visitors click on your website. Cascading from this map are valuable customer experience insights, such as:
Identify attempts on non-actionable elements
By using click maps, you discover that visitors are clicking on some elements that are not clickable and perhaps by making these elements actionable, you can help your customers navigate better. You will also see areas of your website which are not receiving clicks, so you then need to come up with a strategy to get your customers clicking again, for example with modifications to design or content.
Combining clickmaps with heatmaps for A/B testing gives you superpowers because your imagination unleashes and can test all those great ideas that were too complicated or risky to implement live! For example, what will the results look like if we change the placement of a button or its wording; what if we reverse the side the navigation bar is on; or create other scenarios? By A / B testing you get to see how a subtle design change can help improve your visitor's interaction. In Clicktale, you can go back up to 60 days and run heatmaps on the previous version of a website or across a data range.
We recommend strong emphasis on researching your test before you start. To find the right page, you may want to start with the conversion funnel and pick the page with the lowest conversion rate. To create the funnel, try working with the most common steps your visitors take. Clicktale can do this automatically. Another method to create your funnel is to start with conversion as the first step, then follow the journey backwards. Typically, you use this method when the commonest conversion journey for your visitors is not known.
Next step is to find the changes you want to make to your test page. Typically, you will analyse:
For the technical setup as the next step, you will usually engage a 3rd party testing platform to redirect traffic and serve test versions.
Now you are ready to start analysis of your data and measuring results for page conversion; site conversion; conversion value; and behaviour to see why a version won or lost. This gives you a panoramic view of results.
Post analysis, build on your test results to see which version worked best and how the changes affected visitor behaviour.
There are many kinds of changes you can make. Here is a short starter list:
