Website optimization has two approaches — tactical and strategic.
Improving your headline, providing good testimonials and changing form fields are examples of using a tactical approach to add value to your webpages. It is necessary but generally provides only incremental increases in conversion.
A strategic approach, on the other hand, addresses root issues on your pages and can lead to a great increase in customer conversions.
