Six Conversion Tests Worth Running

Whether you are running A/B tests or sequential campaigns, there are a number of elements to your campaigns worth testing to figure out what works best for your site. The six below are just examples of common tests you can try right away. By continually testing variations of your campaigns, you can optimize them even further.

1. Trigger timing: For example, test whether a 10-second time-based trigger converts at a higher rate than 30-second time-based trigger.
