  • Measured by placed quotes

In this experiment, the variation showed a listing's owner online status as a badge, instead of showing their average "response time". More specifically, an "Online Now" badge was shown beside individual listings of a 3D printing marketplace site. The experiment measured completed quote / lead requests (a few steps further).

The core hypothesis of this experiment was that by showing clear availabiltiy (in green text) beside each casting call, more users would apply and become premium members. The experiment reports on two metrics: application starts (the first progression metric), and premium membership sales (merasured a few steps further in the funnel).

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.
