  • Measured by program applications

  • Measured by syllabus or webinars signups

In this experiment, pricing plans were laid out horizontally for easier comparison. In the variation, most of the plan benefits, features and differences were also referenced using a single lable that was left-aligned. The idea was to make the variables aligned and therefore more comparable.

This pricing table appeared at the bottom of a long design program landing page. Impact on leads and applications was measured.

Netflix Keeps Its Older Price Comparison Table And Rejects Their New Layout In This A/B Test

Netflix has been experimenting with the layout of their pricing plans. Challenging the more traditional pricing comparison table, instead they a/b tested three self-contained pricing plan tiles. This newer version however ended up being rejected as we noticed. View Leak

+0.5 Evidence

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.
