A/B Test Ideas and Examples

A/B Testing is a critical tool in your conversion arsenal. Afterall A/B testing gives you the confidence you need to go live with your offers.

As an online course creator or product seller – you know this. But where do you start?

Well, there are three things you need to know before you start:

#1: Our A/B Testing module is designed specifically for one-click upsells and Order Bumps.

#2: You can now test one item against the other, one discount against the other and so much more.

#3: You should only test one element at a time so that you know what to attribute the results to

Keep this in mind and we shall now dive deep.

Let’s now look at the different test cases and ideas for one-click upsells and order bumps.

But keep in mind these are our top 5 test cases and you should pick the one that you feel will get you great results.

Test case #1: Video-based page vs text-based page

Video-based pages can convert higher because videos are captivating and conversational.

It also allows people to see the person behind the business and get a better demonstration of the product.

Having said that, not all people like to learn by watching a video and videos seek a higher commitment of time than a text-based page.

So you can put this hypothesis on the test and find out from your buyers which two versions of the page they would like to buy from.

In the design section, select between the VSL-based template and product upsell template.

a/b-testing-vsl-one-click-upsell
VSL template for one-click upsells
a/b-testing-product-upsell
Product upsell template for one-click upsells

You can use our in-build Customizer, Elementor or any third-party page builders to edit your templates.

Test case #2: The Sequence of upsell offers

This A/B testing module helps you find out which sequence converts better.

Simply set up an experiment to find out in which order you should be upselling the items.

Take a look:

A/B-testing-offer-sequence
Upsell offer sequence 1
A/B-testing-offer-sequence
Upsell offer sequence 2

Setting up a sequence-based test is as simple as dragging and dropping one offer above/below the other.

Test case #3: The Number of upsell offers

Do you want to present more than one post-purchase upsell offers? But don’t know how your audience would respond?

Set up an experiment and find out.

Duplicate the original variant and delete the extra offers.

Test case #4: Multiple offers vs single offer on an upsell page

When you offer people a choice between 2 or 3 offers on the same page the probability of your conversion increases.

People are more likely to pick one option laid on the table when they have a choice as compared to when they don’t. But let your buyers tell you how true this hypothesis is for them.

So the multi-product add-on of UpStroke (also available in the business plan) allows you to present multiple upsell offers on one page.

You can present two or more offers in grid or list format:

a/b-testing-multi-product
Multi-product add-on in action – displaying multiple offers on an upsell page

Here’s the version of the same page with one single item:

a/b-testing-single-offer
An upsell offer displaying one single product offer in an upsell page

When you start the A/B test – some of your buyers will have the choice, others will not. After the numbers roll in – you’ll have a clear winner in your hands.

This will also give a lot of insights about your buyers’ psychology.

Test case #5: Multiple order bumps vs single order bump 

Order bump users who are getting phenomenal results with the bumps are offering people a choice between 2 or more bumps on the checkout page.

Their buyers can choose one of the given bumps or all of them and add to their order.

The order total gets instantly updated based on what they choose.

So this A/B testing strategy helps you decide whether offering a choice on the checkout page between bumps works out better for you or not.

See this in action-

A/B-testing-order-bumps
Multiple order bumps on the checkout page

Here’s just one single order bump on the checkout page-

Single order bump on the checkout page

Also, in bumps, you can test different products against each other and discount amounts. Here’s how:

 

Analyzing Results & Declaring a Winner

After you have set up your test, you can wait for a few days or weeks for the numbers to roll in.

Then, while the test is running – based on the numbers you see in the analytics section, you can declare the winner.

Since this is a demo site and the test just started – there are no stats for you to see.

Next, declare the winner by clicking on the trophy icon:

The winning variant will be live on your site for all your visitors and it will replace the losing variant. The experiment will be marked ‘complete’, although it will always be available for you to check.

Conclusion

These are just the top 5 experiments that we showed above.

Unlike the A/B testing software out there which can A/B test sales and landing pages pretty effectively, this A/B testing module has been built exclusively for one-click upsells and order bumps.

Therefore, it’s quite flexible and allows you to A/B test any element you can think of.

You need a valid ‘Business license of UpStroke’ to get the A/B testing module. If you have the business license then A/B testing will show up on your dashboard automatically and if not, then what are you waiting for? Get it here.

Keep in mind, A/B testing module is exclusively available in the Business plan of UpStroke.
