23 A/B testing ideas to optimize your landing page

Usually you have a pretty good idea of what to A/B test on your landing page (We have 25+ A/B testing case studies in case you need to read those). But once you exhaust all those testing opportunities, you are back to square one. The most logical step is do a proper planning of next phase of A/B testing. Meanwhile if you want to do quick testing, what do you test? In this post, I intend to compile list of 23 quick A/B testing ideas. Here you go:

  • Smaller, crisper headline v/s longer headline
  • No headline v/s having headline
  • Different styling of headline
  • Font size (larger, smaller) of headline
  • Position of headline (left v/s right; top v/s bottom)

Call to action button testing ideas

  • Text in button (“Buy now” v/s “Purchase item”)
  • Action in button (“Watch video” v/s “Free Trial” or “Buy Now” v/s “Add to Cart”)
  • Shape, size and color of button
  • Moving button to the left, right, top or bottom (changing button position)

  1. Hi again, Paras. I wanted to ask your thoughts on a/b testing the avenues in which you attract traffic to your landing pages in the first place. Would you consider that part of a/b testing… or would that be called something different since it is optimizing text/keywords on your properties (ads or social profiles for example) before the visitor clicks through and gets to your landing page?
