Split Testing unlocks your Webstites Conversion and Makes More Sales

For most people website conversion and SEO are like the movie Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde; you test your own experiments on yourself – sometimes you make brilliant discoveries and sometimes you create a monster. One of the ‘brilliant discoveries’ in the search for increasing website conversion is the development of online split testing. With split testing, webmasters are finally able to test multiple versions of their index pages simultaneously to see which version receives the highest conversion rate. Split testing has allowed people (including ourselves), to take websites from 0.5 or 0.8% conversion, clear up to 2, 3, and even 4%, without getting any additional traffic to their sites.

With the development of cutting edge software like Split Testing Pro, we find that we can’t help but improve our various websites conversion rates. It is so easy. All we do is take our original index page, make a few minor adjustments and save the adjusted pages, load them up and start the test. Once the test is over, we take the winner, make that our new index page, and do it all over again. It is a continual process of improvement that keeps making us more money as our websites conversion rates keep going up.

The great thing about split testing is that you can test anything you want on your index page. From flash to adding streaming audio, to testing adsense, the sky is the limit. We’ve done some crazy tests just for fun. For example in one of our tests we had a 35% increase by just changing the color of one word on one of our index pages from blue to red. In another test, we doubled our conversion rate by simply adding some name brand logos. We’ve even split tested Google Adsense vs. Yahoo Publisher Network and have found huge differences in the payouts between the two. I bet you want to know which one pays more don’t you? Why don’t you split test it and find out. :-)

The bottom line is that if you want to increase your sales, improving your conversion rate is way easier, faster and cheaper than getting more traffic. You need both traffic and conversion, but most people focus on just traffic. In order to make your website into a star you need to also focus on improving your website conversion.

    Thanks for the good advice. It’s very true. Having worked in sales for a while, you simply can’t survive without split testing. It lets you know what is working and what isn’t. I was just looking for some color printing when I bumped into your post. Thanks for reminding us all of a great practice!
