  1. Show The Discount Anchoring

    This is an interesting one. The idea is that, if the customer has an active discount code for that session (either by landing on a particular page, or entering a code somewhere), instead of just showing the discount in the basket, we show it further up the funnel,and automatically discount on the product page.

The idea is that, if the customer has an active discount code for that session (either by landing on a particular page, or entering a code somewhere), instead of just showing the discount in the basket, we show it further (earlier) up the funnel and automatically discount on the product page.

The effectiveness of this depends on the discount level, I've tested it at 30% and 50%.

With a 50% Discount:
Add to Cart rate +33%
Sales rate + 24%

With a 30% Discount:
Add to Cart rate +11.6%
Sales rate + 10.2%

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.
