New A/B Test for Your Vote: Easy One for Turkey Day :-)

Which version got more people to enter their financial info and apply for a loan?

The only difference between the two pages was the headline and the form fields. If you’re a conversion optimization pro, you’ll almost certainly guess this week’s test right without breaking a sweat.  (And why work hard the day before Thanksgiving?)

So it’s not a shocking result. What it is, is a *useful* case study for you to show the testing naysayers in your organization. Especially if you do any lead gen campaigns.

It’s the kind of test that helps wake up HIPPOs to the value of testing. And that’s always worth doing. The only difference between the two pages was the headline and the form fields.

New A/B Test for Your Vote: SEOmoz Tests Two Radically Different Offer Pages

This week’s test involves two radically different membership offer pages. One put the three paid membership options front and center. The other put the options below the fold and focused more on explaining why visitors should purchase. Click here and vote to find out which boosted total paid memberships by 51.8%.

Please note: There were several differences between the two pages. In fact, the testing team developed completely new wireframes based on surveys of paying members, free-trial members, and members who had recently canceled their membership.

That feedback influenced both the wireframe design and the content that would be included on the test pages.
