Today we are talking about website design and conversion optimization with Greg Merrilees, the guy behind the websites of Ezra Firestone, Kevin Rogers, Frank Oz and soon our site at Evergreen Profits. He runs Studio1 Design and is a total ninja when it comes to optimizing websites in order to have visitors convert into leads and leads convert into sales.
He’s been online forever, and we dive into common mistakes he has seen that a lot of people are doing with their website design, breaking down the psychology that happens from a customer’s perspective and detailing three key points if you want to have a high converting website.
We also chat about the basics behind Greg’s agency which services 100 people at any one time, and how he’s created a huge business which he’s managed to simplify and give him a truly lifestyle business he loves. And after you soaked all this in, be sure to check out our shows we talked about with Stephan Spencer and James Schramko for more tips about optimizing your site and customer retention.
“It’s quite a trend at the moment to be more organic and not so polished with design. If you look at all social media posts, those are the ones that get shared because people don’t want it to be perfect, they want it to be more handmade and more organic.” – Greg Merrilees
