What Is A/B Testing?
A/B testing – sometimes called split testing or bucket testing – is the process of comparing two versions of a webpage, email, advertisement, or app to see which one performs better.
In an A/B test, two variants are shown to similar visitors at the same time to determine which produces a better conversion rate.
By monitoring revenue per visit, clicks, time on site and other key metrics, you can use this process to make informed marketing decisions that shift your conversations from “we think we are doing the right thing” to “we know we are doing the right thing… and this is why.”
