Multivariate and A/B Testing
Do you want to:
- Increase your website's conversion rate?
- Increase the amount of pages each visitor views on your site?
- Lengthen the amount of time visitors spend on your site?
- Decrease the bounce rate of your website?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then multivariate and split testing is essential for you.
A/B testing, often referred to as split testing, lets you test two different versions of a specific webpage at the same time to help you determine which page outperforms the other. By testing two versions of the same page, you can provide the exact same information in two different ways to ultimately conclude which version of the page actually generates the most conversions.
Multivariate testing gives you the opportunity to test multiple elements on a page simultaneously. You can try any combination of content you want to find out which combination ultimately leads to your ideal results, the sky is the limit. You can test headlines, images, videos, calls-to-action and more, all on one page. By testing all of these different elements, you are then able to deduce which elements perform better than others.
- Maybe visitors are engaged more when they see Headline 2 rather than Headline 1.
- Perhaps users are more likely to hit the Buy Now button when it's slightly larger in webpage version 1.
- Maybe Image 3 outperforms Image 4 in convincing users your product is superior to your competitors?
Both forms of testing randomly provide users with one of two versions of your website. At WebpageFX, we strategically change elements just slightly as to provide you with the best possible inference as a result. We have found that by making minor adjustments to each page, we can better analyze the data accrued to accurately determine which elements of each version of the webpage actually perform best. You'll be amazed at how minor modifications to just one page within your website can boost your website's overall conversion rate.
Either form of testing, whether A/B or multivariate, provides key insight into what your website visitors find most helpful. Your visitors want to perform the desired action as much as you want them to; you just need to know how to make it easiest for them. By understanding which elements encourage such desired behavior from your visitors, you are able to solve a problem for your visitors and increase the amount of sales generated from your website.
Some of Our Web Development Successes:
Maximize Conversions with A/B and Multivariate Testing
If you're driving traffic to a page on your site, be it via a PPC campaign or SEO campaign, you need to know whether or not the content on the page is truly engaging and, most importantly, conversion-oriented.
So your entire site was built with that end goal in mind, and to you the call to action is eye-catching and anything but vague, but you also know exactly what your end goal is on each page within your site. So how effective are the pages on your site, truly? It's imperative you take yourself out of the equation. And you could certainly obtain the opinion of everyone you know, but is that really going to provide you with a boost in sales?
Why not ask the people you built it for? Better than that, you're not even asking with the risk of skewed data and opinion your live testing. That's right. Providing users with the elements and discovering how they respond.
With Google Website Optimizer services and multivariate testing, you are able to understand how the various elements and pieces of content on your site affect your visitors, how they interact with certain elements and, most importantly, which elements influence them to fulfill a desired action (read: make a purchase).
Which call to action button works best? What lead form results in more submissions? What text engages users more? All of these questions and more are asked and answered with a multivariate testing campaign. The importance of testing and accruing real data is of the utmost importance. You wouldn't place your entire last year's salary on mere speculation, would you?
Obviously not; and you shouldn't place your entire Internet marketing budget on such volatile data either.
Listen To Your Visitors and Eliminate Decision Making that's Based on Speculation
Wouldn't it be great if you could create a basic website, drive traffic there and visitors would make purchases immediately, no hesitations, no questions asked? Too bad this isn't a perfect world, and things don't work that way. We're all well aware of the fact that users are inundated these days with tons of options, which in turn allows users to be picky, extremely picky. That being said, if you don't present your visitors with the information they are seeking in the right manner, they'll find someone who does. How can you know what users are looking for? Testing. By performing multivariate and A/B testing, you are provided the opportunity to identify what your visitors respond to best so you can create the most effective version of your website.
