Find Out How It Did

  • Measured by total leads (free and paid)

  • Measured by total revenue

This test deprioritized the free option (kostenlos) of cancelling a contract. It did so by placing it under the paid options as small text link / radio option.

  • Measured by account signups

  • Measured by visits to post purchase page

Olark's homepage was directing users towards a free forever trial - with followup nudges to upgrade some days later. The variation B of the experiment tested a more aggressive push to a pricing page page - with options to select a paid plan, as well as provide a credit card (getting the payment conversation out of the way sooner).

Netflix A/B Tests And Rejects Free Trials

Netflix has been offering a 30 day free trial for Canadians. Sometime in May however we spotted something way more interesting - they began a/b testing different trial durations (30, 14 and 7 days), as well as an immediate payment-first approach (without a trial). View Leak

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.
