6 steps A/B Testing for CRO Success

What is A/B Testing?

A/B testing is a powerful technique used to compare two versions of a webpage or marketing material to determine which one performs better in achieving a specific goal, such as increasing sales or sign-ups. The process involves splitting the website traffic or audience into two groups, showing each group a different version of the webpage, and analyzing the results to identify which version is more effective in achieving the desired outcome.

However, it's important to approach A/B testing professionally and scientifically to ensure reliable results. With the right approach, A/B testing can be a valuable tool for driving conversions and boosting your bottom line.

How to conduct an A/B Test?

The quality of A/B testing is crucial to the success of a CRO program.It is important to maintain meticulous control over every stage of the testing process. Any lack of control or oversight during testing can result in missed opportunities and inaccurate data.

In Convx, we ensure the testing process is carried out precisely so we get more accurate, revealing and beneficial results (check out our success cases here). Here are the six steps to achieving CRO success:

Tracking Implementation

Implement tracking to ensure that you are measuring the right data to make informed decisions. This involves setting up goals and events in your analytics tools, as well as tracking user behavior with tools such as heatmaps and session recordings. Tracking implementation ensures that you are collecting the data you need to make informed decisions.


Once you have tracking in place, you can conduct research to understand your audience and their behavior on your website. Use analytics tools to collect data on user behavior, such as how long they spend on your site, which pages they visit, and where they drop off. Use this information to identify patterns and opportunities for improvement.


Based on your research, develop hypotheses about what changes you can make to your website to improve user behavior. For example, you may hypothesize that changing the color of a button will increase clicks or that removing a distracting element will increase conversions.

Solution Design

Once you have a hypothesis, design a solution that addresses it. This may involve making changes to your website's design, copy, or functionality. Be sure to consider the impact of your solution on the user experience, as well as any technical limitations.

A/B Testing

To determine whether your solution is effective, run A/B tests. This involves creating two versions of your website, one with the original design and one with the new solution. Randomly assign users to each version and measure the results. A/B testing allows you to objectively determine which solution is more effective.

Monitor and Repeat

Once you have implemented your solution, monitor the results to see whether it has had the desired effect. If it has, great! If not, iterate and repeat the process. Use the data you collect to inform future hypotheses and solutions.

Achieving CRO success requires a comprehensive approach and it's an ongoing process, so be sure to continuously monitor and iterate to achieve the best possible results.
