something happening in your client’s industry that is out of your control (eg, seasonality, breaking news). These are situations where visitors are more inclined to act differently than they normally do.

It’s not uncommon to set up an A/B test, run it for two weeks, and declare the variation lost, only to find out later that it was due to a bug (visitors weren’t able to complete the key task because your site just wasn’t working). . Or, goal tracking wasn’t set up correctly and therefore you missed a lot of conversions.

To prevent that, you need a rigorous quality assurance (QA) process before every test. Make sure everything works across all browsers, all devices, and all variations of your site (eg bilingual) and that all important data matches. If this is too complicated (which it is, I get it), you can always segment your test. Don’t want to deal with IE? Keep Bolivia B2B List him out of the test. However, this really depends on your client’s circumstances – you may need all browsers because the client is having traffic problems. And yes, this requires technical knowledge, which brings me to my next point… 4. You’ll have to get dirty with the code It’s relatively easy to change a button’s title or color using an A/B testing tool’s WYSIWYG editor, but those

changes won’t do much for your client’s business (unless you’re running tests on a very high-end site). traffic). Those fall into the 5 percent and below expected increase category (it’s way below that, actually; the color of a button can give you a 0.002 percent increase, you can put that in the sample size calculator and see how much traffic will need). Don’t get me wrong; this does not mean that small changes cannot bring you a significant result. They can, but most of the time, they won’t. If you want to run more meaningful tests that produce results for your client’s business, you need to remember this simple rule: “The bigger the change, the more likely it is to affect visitor behavior or perception, so you’ll see a significant difference.”


The larger the change, the more likely it is to affect visitor behavior or perception; therefore, you will see a significant difference. Unfortunately, nine times out of 10 this also means changes to your code that will most often exceed the limitations of the WYSIWYG editor. So if you are not very technical, you will most likely need help.

In short, the change must be big enough to move the needle and make a noticeable difference.

Style Your Button

It’s big enough to affect a visitor’s decision-making.  Their decision about whether to become your customer’s customer (or do what you want them to do). It’s not exactly a redesign of their entire store. Which is also technically a big change, but in this case it’s too big. It has its place and purpose. It makes the most sense when your store design is seriously outdated and performance is terrible.  Or when you’re taking a new direction with your client’s brand.  But you have to be careful with this one. What I mean here is called innovative testing (sometimes radical testing). For an eCommerce customer, these are fundamental changes to key funnel pages (such as home page, category, product, search results, and checkout), site-wide (e.g., navigation, flow of visitors) and in the value proposition. What about iterative tests (sometimes called incremental)?
