  • Measured by visits to signup landing page   |   p-val (?)

In this experiment, the same message (with a link) for signing up to a newsletter was shown in two distinct ways. The control (A) showed the signup message as inline one that preceded the content of the article at the very top. The variant showed the same signup message as a scroll-delayed sticky interaction at the bottom of the screen. The background colorĀ of the B variant was also inverted to match the style of the footer.

  • Measured by visits to pricing page   |   p-val (?)

  • Measured by premium sales   |   p-val (?)

In this beautiful test, the key change was the introduction of a larger call to action linking to a premium / upgrade screen. The call to action was placed on the left sidebar which was floating. This is a great example of providing visibility to important elements by making them persistent.

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.
