PRIVATE LAUNCHES WWW.PRIVATE.COM v2.0 AS PART OF NEW AGGRESSIVE ONLINE STRATEGY
he Company’s in house team of experienced web designers has developed a state-of-the-art proprietary site design and structure. The development included using feedback from key webmasters and customers, which resulted in increased personalization, more compelling membership benefits and a broad range of new content offerings and functionality choices. The new site also offers an extremely user friendly navigation system and more options for visitors to access and buy content including video-on-demand, live streams/chats and download to own. The new site ensures that the quality of Private on the web is commensurate to the quality of the Private brand.
Private Media Group’s Director of Online Media Fiona Garvey explained: “The key objective when planning and building our new website was to increase conversion rates1 by more effectively marketing our products to site visitors prior to them making a purchase. The marketing efforts primarily include two features: a) allowing visitors access to a searchable database with movie titles and star biographies featuring images and clips, thereby giving visitors a taste of what Private has to offer, and b) creating a relationship with visitors via interactive features such as polls, blogs and forums to make them come back although they may not have purchased anything in the first place. In addition, we are consolidating our many different websites and revenue streams into a single-branded experience, thereby creating a one-stop-shop. We are extremely pleased with the result and following the soft-launch last week we have seen a significant increase in both conversion rates and time spent by visitors on the site.“
NOTES TO THE EDITORS:
1 In Internet marketing the conversion rate is the percentage of unique visitors who take a desired action upon visiting the website. The desired action may be submitting a sales lead, making a purchase, viewing a key page of the site, downloading a whitepaper, or some other measurable action.
