Let us take a look at how VWO helps you easily create the two types of Split Tests: A/B Tests and Split URL Tests.
Creating A/B Test with VWO
A/B Testing is comparing two or more versions of a website page or a landing page to determine which version performs better. The one with the higher conversion rate is called the winning variation.
Creating an A/B Test with VWO is extremely simple and only requires 4 easy steps.
1. Include VWO Tracking Code in your website
Including the code snippet enables VWO to run your tests.
2. Create variations by making changes in the Visual Campaign Builder
3. Select Conversion Goals
Companies use their websites and webpages for a variety of conversion goals like increasing revenue, signups, clicking on a particular link etc. Read this post to understand the complete list of conversion goals you can track though VWO.
4. Start and Track your test
That’s it! You’re ready to get started with your very first A/B Test. Our reporting is on real-time basis so you can start seeing reports as soon as visitors arrive on live test.
Creating Split URL Test with VWO
Split URL Testing is preferred over A/B Testing in case of large design changes. It is often used to send visitors to different versions of a landing page. In this type of testing, different URLs are created for different versions of the page. Traffic is distributed among the URLs.
The steps to creating a simple Split URL Test with VWO are as follows:
1. Create Variation URLs
Unlike an A/B Test, in a Split URL Test you host your own variation URLs. So, before starting the test, make sure that you have created these variation pages with different URLs.
2. Include VWO Tracking Code on all the URLs
Just like in A/B Testing, the VWO tracking code should be included on the pages on which test is supposed to run. The only thing to be noted here is that, the code should be present on all the variation URLs as well as the control URL. Thus, for example, if you have control URL “example.com/a.html” and variation URL “example.com/b.html”, you have to enter the VWO code separately in both of them.
The last 2 steps: ‘Select Conversion Goals’ and ‘Start and Track your test” are same as in A/B Test.
As you can see, running Split Tests through VWO is a matter of minutes. VWO has been specifically designed to help marketers and business owners set up and run tests with minimal IT help.
