Test Your Sales Copy: Quick, Easy and Free

testtubes.jpgI get a lot of questions from clients and students and people who read my blog asking, “How do I get started testing and tracking? I know I should be split-testing and tracking my sales copy, but I don’t know how!”

“And how about Taguchi testing – do I have to use that, too? What about multivariate testing?” The questions go on and on in this often-confusing subject!

Now for the good news: split-testing is easy! By using simple, yet sophisticated, split-testing techniques, you can increase your conversions and gain more business.

Today’s resource is for you if you want an easy way to test your copy. By using Website Optimizer, you can easily test your writing. No, I’m not making bunches of money by recommending it – you can’t buy this software, so there’s no affiliate link here. But you can have it free, and it’s all courtesy of Uncle Google.

This is truly wonderful software. While it is very sophisticated, it is also easy to use. With all these features, you would expect to pay hundreds, even thousands of dollars. Not only can you use it to perform split-testing, it even does simple multivariate testing too.

While doing a traditional “split-test” means you test one element at a time, with multivariate testing you can do so much more. Test everything all at once, from your headlines and sub-heads to your background and graphic elements! The statistically-reliable testing offered by this program can help you sell more of whatever you sell by increasing your conversions.

Google has great tutorials right on their website to teach you how to use it, so I won’t spend a lot of time explaining that. Just read and watch the tutorials.

Here’s the easiest way I know of to start testing, and it will take you one hour or less to get started:

  1. Get a Google account. Use this link to set it up.
  2. Set up your first test. Follow the step-by-step instructions in Website Optimizer.
  3. Start your test. Just click and let Google do all the work. The software can test all your copy, headlines, and so on, advising you which version will convert the most sales for your business.

It couldn’t be easier, and you sure can’t beat the price!

Check out Website Optimizer today. It’s the best way I know to get started split-testing.

  1. Ray, Ray, Ray…exactly what I needed, exactly when I needed it…how do you DO that?

    Thanks – I’ve been looking for something to recommend to a client for just this purpose.

    Now that I don’t have to spend hours doing research tomorrow, I think I’ll take a drive to St. Tropez and see who’s spending their winter vacations away from the cold and snow…thanks!

  2. Ray:
    I confess I’ve been lurking and eating a free lunch for awhile and it’s paying off … I’ve used your ideas to build a better webpage <a href=”www.knowledgestar.com”, and a great sales page that is converting at around 8% – click here

    So I thought it was time to come out of the virtual closet and say “Thanks!”.

    Cheers,
