AB Testing

Make informed, data-driven decisions for your website by utilising AB testing

What is AB Testing?

A/B testing is a method for measuring the performance of two versions of a web page or app. The results of AB testing are analysed to establish which version works best for a defined conversion goal. Webtrends Optimize uses market-leading technology to test any part of a website (such as landing pages or conversion funnels), and then measures the user behaviour of a defined target audience. Using advanced statistical modelling, Webtrends Optimize can then accurately predict which test result will perform best. Running an AB test against an existing user experience can eliminate guesswork when designing and delivering new digital experiences.

AB Testing vs Multivariate Testing

Understanding the different testing methods can be confusing, so what's the difference between A/B testing and Multivariate testing (MVT)? AB testing is simply the choice between one version of a web page and a different version of a web page, with traffic split evenly between the two, where as MVT is different because it allows multiple elements of a single webpage to be changed to establish which combination delivers the best result.

Both are very valuable features and which one to use depends on what your objectives are and what you are trying to understand in any given situation. They are also both very powerful when combined with other CRO and personalisation tools such as social proof, exit messaging and product recommendations - all of which is possible with Webtrends Optimize as standard.

Even simple tests can provide useful insight and surprising results compared with your initial thoughts about what might work best. Changing the button colour or position of a call to action can have a significant impact on click-through rate and can increase conversion.

With A/B testing, you'll get a statistically significant result for which button, message, design or any other element resonate best with your customers, whatever the sample size.
