4 Ways to Optimize Your Split Testing Strategy for Better Results and Crystal Clear Insights

Split testing has quickly become all the rage for online businesses these days, and for good reason: it’s one of the easiest ways to increase your conversion rate.

Neil Patel (co-founder of KISSMetrics and Crazy Egg) even went as far to call it “the only reliable way to improve your conversion rate” in an article for Forbes.com.

At its core, however, split testing is much more than that. It’s also one of the best ways to learn what motivates your customers.

In this post I’m going to show you four ways to run better split tests by testing with purpose. You’ll learn not only how to improve your conversion rates, but also how to gain priceless insights into your customers with every split test you run. Read More

If you chose Version A, you are correct! 

Version A, with a 100% probability of outperforming Version B, received a 57.02% increase in conversion. These numbers indicate to us that Version A inspired visitors to take action at a higher rate.

Here are a few of my speculations as to why “Download” (instead of “Opt-In”) may have caused this increase in conversion:

  1. “Download” may be interpreted as a customer-centric result, as the customer is the one receiving the download. On the other side, “Opt-In” may come off as a business-centric result, as it is the LeadBox’s primary goal.
  2. “Opt-In” may intimidate visitors and make them wary of what they’re opting into.

If you’re looking for a testing idea that’s quick and easy to implement, try experimenting with different headline copy on your landing pages and even LeadBoxes®!

If you chose Version B, you are correct!

Version B, with a 100% probability of outperforming Version A, received a 19.95% increase in conversions. Since the headline was the only change that was made, these results indicate to us that it was at the root of the major conversion rate boost.

Although we can’t say with 100% certainty why Version B received the increase, here are a few of my speculations:

  1. The customers found more value in ROI-centric messaging.
  2. ROI-centric messaging based on Brian’s own process may have added credibility to the product.
  3. Version B includes this value in a separate paragraph, increasing its prominence on the page.

If you’re looking to improve your landing pages, try testing out a headline that focuses on a different benefit. In this case, we saw that Brian’s visitors were more motivated by ROI than the amount of leads generated.
