Growth culture demands an environment that supports dialogues, debates, and disagreements. Building momentum and scaling with sustainability requires an environment where stakeholders can ask uncomfortable questions, have tough conversations, and effectively navigate through disruption to the ultimate solution. 

A/B Testing Examples: Data Helps Resolve Differences and Drive Growth

At Orange Pegs, we firmly believe in creating a safe place to discuss these differences — we know firsthand it can play an integral part in fostering an environment poised for growth. We also recognize that stakeholders on both sides of our client relationships can have very passionate opinions. 

Our clients are heavily invested in their businesses — on both a professional and personal level. Many of our clients have bootstrapped their companies from the ground up. They are, and have always been heavily involved in, well, almost everything since launch day — every decision, every offer, every customer interaction.

Our Growth Marketing Team Trusts Reliable Data Over Debates

As for Orange Pegs, our growth marketers are heavily invested in our clients — we are passionate about helping every partner we work with develop and implement a cohesive growth marketing strategy that influences North Star wins and upswings in other key performance indicators. But sometimes, how we think we’ll get there looks a little different than the way our clients think we’ll get there — and that’s great. 

Why?  

Because when creating growth marketing solutions that prioritize North Star wins, every disagreement offers an opportunity for a growth hacker favorite: A/B testing examples and experimentation.

What are A/B Testing Examples? Breaking Down This Growth Strategy

A/B testing, also known as split testing, creates marketing experimentation to determine the performance of different variations of the same online experience. When running marketing experimentation using A/B testing, it’s critical to pick one variable to test

Yes, having multiple stakeholders often means having multiple ideas (and disagreements) but to truly evaluate how effective a change is to overall outcomes, it’s critical to isolate one “independent variable” and measure its performance. Otherwise, it’s virtually impossible to pinpoint which variable had the most significant impact on performance.

Of course, you can test more than one variable for any given online asset (i.e. landing page, email, CTA, etc.) — but each variable must be tested individually.

How Do You Determine What Type of Growth Marketing Experimentation to Run?

The type of experiment you'll run with your growth marketing campaigns is determined by what type of digital asset you are testing. Some common testing examples include: 

Headline

Test different headlines to see which one captures the attention of your audience and encourages them to read more about your offer.

Call to Action

A/B Testing Uses Data To Resolve Questions and Disagreements

When used as part of a dynamic growth marketing strategy, A/B testing can eliminate the guesswork from any successful growth marketing campaign, delivering specific, quantifiable, tangible results that enable future data-driven marketing decisions. It’s the very foundation of what our growth marketing team does, for a lot of reasons — but it’s also a powerful, objective tool to help navigate conflict and disagreements about what really resonates with your customers. 

A/B testing quickly helps identify and separate potential concerns, sorts out the minutiae and keeps stakeholders focused on final outcomes. Most importantly, allowing the data to speak for itself creates a framework for stakeholders to collectively challenge ideas, not people — and make informed future decisions.
