PICK THE WINNER: Your Prize...Double Your Sales

15 replies
Ok, which ad got 107% more sales than the other?
The split test was carried out over 30 days.

And why did it win?

That's the most important lesson because it can be transferred
to other products and services.

Best,
Ewen

    I think it was #2.

    Why?

    1. It says it's an authorized dealer for Seiko.
    2. The first ad has you click away for more details on the price guarantee.

      That is what I would have picked too for the same reasons.

      People care about quality more than they do price.

    No doubt! Ad 1 - NEVER BEATEN ON PRICE! What's not to like!

    I almost want to click on the buy button right now. Who doesn't love to buy something at the BEST price.

    That awkward moment when nobody else says ad 1 and you have to take a look in the mirror.

      Why don't you see what happens when you click on their website?

      www.expresswatches.co.uk

      They seem to have lasted all of 3 months.

    1st one.

    The 1st one is about the client

    the second one is about the supplier. "Official UK dealer" already implies they are authorized.

    It's a higher ticket item though. Someone who is spending $300+ for a watch is not as worried about saving a few bucks.

      I could understand that for a $10,000+ Rolex where authenticity can be an issue, but a $300 Seiko? That market cares about price. I would think there are many multi-millionaires who would still want the best price for something.

        Unless you want to make sure it's waterproof or some other official-quality-necessary feature. Not sure if that's the case for this, but I know of people buying in that price range that don't care about saving a few bucks. They want to make sure if they go diving that the watch isn't fogged or otherwise ruined.

    Just because someone says that one version performed better, how do we really know? How do we know that the sample size was of statistical significance?

    Can see the initial post about it here: https://vwo.com/blog/increase-in-sales/

    Problem is.... its nice click bait, interesting topic, good content marketing... but nothing is proven... how do we know that the first result wasn't the initial touch and a retargeting campaign brought them back? How do we know the traffic sources were isolated? Social traffic converts differently than organic traffic.

    Personally, I would choose the first version.

    I'm very cautious about statistical claims without the complete data behind it.

    Interesting topic though, and interesting to see what people think is the better version. Too bad the site gives a 403 error.

    Or... if they're out of business... perhaps the most important lesson here is that even if you double your conversions, doesn't mean you're profitable. LOL.

    I like this thread because it gives a thought exercise in the OP, but follow up posts give ways to verify data you find online and what to look for when a case study is presented as evidence.

    Doesn't matter which one performed better.

    Bothering to A/B test at all is what generates results.
