Website Redesign Case Study – PC Repair Lab

Website Redesign Case Study – PC Repair Lab (http://www.pcrepairlab.co.uk)

Introduction

Based in Leicester, PC Repair Lab provides mobile computer repair services to consumers across the UK.
They came to us in enquiring about how our website re-design service can help their business grow and what flow20.com can do to help.
They knew their site was getting traffic since they were using Google AdWords but not getting the expected level of business from their efforts.

Analysis

Upon a detailed study of their Google Analytics data we determined that the poor performance of the following metrics may be the cause for their concerns:

  • PC Repair Lab’s website was getting a reasonable no. of visitors compared to other business of similar size and industry but the website-to-enquiry conversion rates were less than 0.5%
  • The website-to-booking conversion rates were around the same mark
  • The website had a Bounce Rate (no. of people who left the website from the landing page, without clicking further on any pages) was high, close to 60%.
  • Our initial study was useful and helped us understand that it wasn’t lack of visitors that contributed to the low ROI but rather the design and the user-experience of their website which was limiting the ease of use by which website visitors should be able to perform their Critical Actions on their website such as request a quote, make a booking and make an enquiry.

Action  

By analysing the data before we started the work, we were able effectively strategize the
design goals and the end-results the new website should deliver. We set out to create a
new website design for them with the following goals in mind 

  • Strategic and consistent placement of the important Call-to-action’s for the website to improve conversions 
  • Use relevant graphics and text for the new website visitors to help them instantly identify the website’s value proposition, 
  • thereby decreasing Bounce Rates  
  • Relevant enquiry forms to encourage those visitors who weren’t ready to buy to increase lead-generation
  • Placement of customer testimonials on homepage to inspire new-visitor trust and confidence
