Key Takeaways

  • No matter how much brand recognition or popularity you have, testing on your website is something you can always control & pursue to maximize impact.
  • As you can see in this example, button text can have a big impact, especially on a squeeze page where a button is one of the few defining elements.
  • Always remember that different language will appeal to different segments of your audience. This also applies to the stage in which a customer is at. If they already bought something from you for instance, would you talk to them like they're a new prospect that doesn't know anything about you yet? When something's new, you have to sell it thoroughly, leaving no stone unturned. When something's accustomed & you've already built rapport, overselling could be a turn off as the test results show.
