Taking a Scientific Approach to Digital Marketing: How A/B Split Testing Can Improve Conversions and the Consumer Experience!
As marketers and businesses in general, can any of us truly say that we are using the absolute best version of every marketing tactic in our arsenal? I think not - and those that can are few and far between.
For the majority of marketing’s lifetime as a professional discipline, decisions, content direction, design, and strategy have largely been influenced by opinion and gut feel. While going with our gut can create a good jumping off point, it is not the key ingredient for a solid, ongoing marketing strategy.
Do any of the quotes below sound familiar?
- “This email subject line should work best.”
- “I think it should be red instead of blue.”
- “How many form fields should we use?”
- “This content might resonate with our audience better than that.”
- “Are you sure we should say Free Demo instead of Complimentary Consultation?”
- “What should we try to improve conversion rates?
These are just a few examples among thousands that we experience everyday, and that is exactly why we need to utilize a scientific approach to take the guesswork out of marketing. Luckily there is a simple method at our disposal that can provide clear direction, continuous improvement, and a real positive impact on the bottom line of your business – A/B split testing.
