How Does A/B Testing Help Your Medical Practice Website Design?

What is A/B & Multivariate Testing?

A/B & Multivariate Testing may seem like a complicated subject, but it’s actually pretty simple. Basically, with A/B Testing, websites can serve up two different forms of content to track which version performs better. Not sure if an orange or a purple button will better entice users to click on it? With A/B Testing, you can remove the guesswork, turning hunches into facts, and know once and for all. Using this method of testing can greatly increase key metrics for your medical website design including leads, registrations, downloads, and, most importantly, revenue. So how does it work?

Let’s take an example. Almost all major news sites today use A/B Testing on headlines to see which version drives more traffic. First, two different headlines are chosen, the A (base) headline and the B (test case) headline. Both are then applied to an A/B Testing Tool which will serve up the two versions equally, at random, to different visitors. Once a statistically significant variation in results is determined for which headline users were likely to click on more, the A/B Test concludes the winner and scraps the alternate, losing version. Multivariate Testing is slightly different in that you can apply more than one test case, serving up a wide variety of different versions. The hard data and science behind the test, regardless of which style of testing, definitively shows which headline is objectively better for generating more visitors to the site.

Using A/B (Split) Testing can help determine which Call to Action is best

The applications of A/B Testing in medical website design are extensive. With the primary goal of your website being patient lead generation, there are many important avenues to optimize such as capturing visitor’s information via forms, encouraging direct phone calls or email, and conveying physician expertise. So what kind of A/B tests could you run with this in mind? Here are just a few examples:

1)      Placement and styling of a phone number

2)      Number of fields in a contact form

3)      Before/after picture selection

4)      Type of home page banner image

5)      Call to Action button style

6)      Video introduction versus pictures with text

As you can see, there are a number of different ways to go about optimizing your site for better conversion rates.
