Pay Later
  1. Add: No Payment Today Message Smaller Commitments

    Assuming that a payment isn't collected immediately the time of filling out the form, this pattern suggests to clarify this. One way to do this is simply with text in proximity to the form, stating that money will not be withdrawn today.

  2. Add: When Will Payment Occur Reassurances

    The second part of this pattern also suggests to inform customers when the payment will actually happen.

For each pattern, we measure three key data points derived from related tests:

REPEATABILITY - this is a measure of how often a given pattern has generated a positive or negative effect. The higher this number, the more likely the pattern will continue to repeat.

SHALLOW MEDIAN - this is a median effect measured with low intent actions such as initiating the first step of a lengthier process

DEEP MEDIAN - this is derived from the highest intent metrics that we have for a given test such as fully completed signups or sales.

100% Secure Payment with Visa

MY GUARANTEE: Test any Fastforward pattern and if it doesn’t get you the results you are happy with, I will refund you 100% within 30 days. Zero risk.

Let me tell you why I offer this guarantee to you:

I am 100% focused on getting positive results for people willing to put in the work to improve their conversion rates. At the core I share two beliefs: 1) that the more something works, the greater its probability for working again and 2) running controlled experiments is a great way of validating your ideas.

Because we observed many of these pattern (especially the positive ones with high degrees of repeatability) perform and win across our own projects, I also am confident that they will work for you.

That’s why I guarantee all of the Fastforward patterns and the effects (positive or negative) they promise.

It’s simple: try our patterns in your a/b tests. If it doesn’t help you increase your win rate, email me and I’ll refund you 100% of the price.

This guarantee covers you for a full 30 days and gives you enough time to decide for yourself whether or not it was worth your investment.
