Conversion is the successful completion of a desired action. This action can be defined as clicking on an advertising banner, completing a purchase, a download or registration for a newsletter.

We distinguish two types of conversions:

  • Macro conversions – primary goals of a website
    Examples: filling out the contact form, purchase
  • Micro conversions – steps or milestones that help you reach the end goal
    Examples: newsletter signups, whitepaper downloads, contact page views
