A/B testing is the scientific way of arriving at the truth, or at least the best option in a given set of conditions. Website A/B testing broadly means testing two versions of a webpage to see which fares better with your visitors and earns you more sales or conversions.
Scientists and engineers have been using the scientific method of experimentation for hundreds of years. Now, the culture of experimentation is changing the way businesses grow. Businesses that have embraced A/B testing have embraced the data-driven culture. They make decisions based on the basis of numbers and not on the basis of gut, feeling, instinct, or sheer complacency. With the right testing methods, companies can see up to a 50% increase in conversion rates.
