split testing screen shots: which performs better? don't guess...know

Split Testing your website can be a very powerful tool, helping you understand your visitors, what makes them carry out key actions (adding an item to the shopping cart, signing-up, etc.) or whether there are any particularly weak points on your website.

There’s a lot of conflicting advice on the Internet concerning split testing (or A/B testing and multivariate testing). The key to successfully implementing split testing is in understanding what to test, which depends on the specific website and its audience.

Here are just a few examples:

bullet point

test a major re-design

It is sometimes good to start with a whole re-design of a page or a new layout of a whole section, comparing the previous version against the newer version and measuring which performs better.

bullet point

test smaller details

You might test different headlines, images or colour schemes. For example, a more persuasive headline will likely have a positive impact. Split testing proves [by collecting live test data] which element performs better, taking away potentially expensive guesswork.

bullet point

test pricing

Pricing might be seen as a seperate subject, but testing the same service or product at different price points might provide very surprising results. If you sell something for £200, what effect on sales would changing the price to £199 or £195 have? What about at £219? No guesswork, just test data.
