WUA’s Digital Sales Benchmark studies draw on hundreds of respondents to map out markets in terms of both online sales performance and digital experience. The graph below shows Findability, Preference and Conversion at work. At WUA, we call this the “Bubble Chart” for market performance.

The Bubble Chart

  • The horizontal axis shows Findability: The percentage of consumers who find and visit a website during their search for a specific product or service.
  • The vertical axis shows Conversion: The percentage of visitors a website is able to convince to buy .
  • The size of the circle is determined by the absolute Preference for the website within the market. That is how many of the respondents choose this website. The larger the circle, the higher the Preference
  • The graph shows the relationship between Findability and Conversion. Websites that are frequently found and visited but manage to convince relatively few of these visitors appear at the bottom right. At the top left are websites that are highly convincing, but not often found.

Increasing your sales share

Each corner of the Bubble Chart has its own focus. This is your guide to improving your website’s performance. What should you invest in? What should you stop, start or continue?
