There may be no such thing as a free lunch - but now there's a free CRO package that gives you the ability to run as many A/B tests across your site as you need. Almost half of smaller businesses don't currently utilize A/B testing, which will mean they're potentially losing vast sums compared to the revenue they could have been generating had they engaged in CRO. That's why this free tool is so powerful. It opens up the possibility of A/B testing to all players, regardless of size. Whilst currently there is a divide between larger businesses able to afford to use a paid A/B testing tool like convert.com (which is a great tool) and smaller business unable to use these tools because of their cost, this free tool from Google will allow all businesses to optimize their conversion rate.
The tool in question is Google Optimize, which was previously part of Google's enterprise testing and personalized package called Google Optimize 360. Google Optimize provides users with many of the features of Google Optimize 360, but without the enterprise level price tag.
The optimize visual editor allows for quick and easy edits via drag and drop, and if you need to it's easy to go into the raw HTML.
Google Optimize also lets you show personalised content to different users based on given rules, so you can start targeting prospects with the most relevant content for them. Again this is nothing new but it is the first time businesses have been able to use this kind of technology for free, opening it up to a whole host of smaller businesses.
The tool also crunches the numbers for you to make it clear which tests are winning, which is great if you don't have a good grasp of statistics so would struggle to work what passes the threshold for a test to be statistically significant.
You can review how tests are performing and see which are meeting the winning criteria in the reporting tab. If you want to set started with Google Optimize for your businesses you can find out more here.
