If you have ever created a landing page, you know that you simply don’t get the best possible ROI at day 1. You have to keep optimizing your webpage based on the responses until you reach the finest version of it. If you don’t test, you will never be 100% sure what design, call-to-action or copy is working for you. A/B testing or Multi-variant testing is a way to statistically evaluate what elements of a webpage are working for you. A/B test is an experiment where two or more variants of a webpage are shown to users at random, and statistical analysis is used to determine which variation performs better for a given conversion goal.
Ideally, You should always test your headlines, ad copies, Ad designs, webpages and CTA. Most email tools have the inbuilt A/B testing feature available, which lets you test email subject lines and email copies. But as of now, we will be focusing on best A/B testing tools for webpages:
