Shortcut Buttons
  1. Add: Shortcut Option Bypassing Steps Smaller Commitments

    The pattern suggests to offer a shortcut option that allows users to bypass additional steps. This can apply to bypassing landing pages and going straight to a checkout screen. Or this same pattern can also bypass a series of questions and shortcut to a final signup screen.

This test is a perfect example of pushing customers who might not be ready into a sale. The shallow metric of people clicking the "purchase" button and moving forward into a checkout screen has a highly significant 86% increase. However these people don't follow through with the actual sale, which is clear from a -16% decrease in sales. A great example of how pushing sales too hard can backfire.

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.
