To shift your marketing campaign efforts from assumption to knowledge, you can run A/B tests to experiment with variations of the original page to measure which variation performs better in terms of making visitors complete a desired goal. Page variations are displayed to visitors randomly at traffic distribution that you set for a specific time period. Next, you explore performance results and statistical analysis in DEC for the effect of the change, based on which you decide which variation is your winner that optimizes the page to a desired outcome. You can experiment with forms, layout, position of page elements, content elements, call to action, images, social sharing options, and many other components of your pages.
For more information, see Overview: A/B testing.
