Grunt (Dot) Com Finds Winning Trust Mark Increases Website Conversion

Share Article

Grunt (Dot) Com runs split test comparing Trust Guard and McAfee Secure to determine which website security company best suited their needs.

“We know from years of experience in the business and all kinds of research, that having a safe website, especially one that's been scanned, has huge benefits.

As the premier source for Marines to get gear, share stories, find buddies, and carry on the traditions of this great brotherhood,, recently ran an A-B-C split test comparing the top two online security companies head to head. The split-test was conducted to statistically analyze which security company would use for their website.

“We decided to test Trust Guard against McAfee Secure due to the potential cost-savings of switching. We started a split test using the two different seals and a version without a seal. The conversion rates fluctuated through the test and we quit the test early with Trust Guard ahead of the other two. We were satisfied that the conversion rate was at least as good as McAfee SECURE and for 1/8th the price,” said Caleb Glave, SGT Grit Marine Specialties,

Trust, a well-known and important factor in running a successful business is the reason that Trust Guard believes that having third-party-verification is so important and so much more profitable.

“We know from years of experience in the business, and from extensive research, that having a safe website, especially one that's been scanned,has huge benefits. Your visitors will know that your website is safe when it displays a trust mark or seal by Trust Guard. Visitors, who feel safe, tend to stay on your site longer, and more of them become customers. As a result your conversion rate goes up and you make more sales. Being able to do that at a fraction of the cost is just an added bonus,” added Trust Guard’s CMO Cresta Pillsbury.
