🎯 AppSumo A/B Tests

I’ve been sharing experiments on Twitter that we’re running on AppSumo to boost conversions.

Amazing how small changes make a big difference.

3 things boosted conversions, 1 didn’t. Click to see UI before/afters:

Removed duplicate content (^ 4.9%)

Added ‘Save for Later’ button (^ 2.5%)

Increased ‘Buy Now’ button (^ 7.3%)

Stopped showing retargeted ads (no difference)

Put these to the test on your own site and see what works. If it even makes 1% more revenue, it’s worth the effort.

Be Epic,
