New York Web Development Firm Suggests That Businesses Regularly Test and Improve Their Websites
Leading Manhattan website development firm says that, when it comes to small business websites, small changes can make a big difference.
When it comes to changing the layout or the elements of a website design, the idea is to increase sales, says Peter Crisafi, Vice President of dzine it, Inc., a leading New York website design and web development firm with clients from around the world. Sometimes even the smallest changes can make an incredible difference.
Crisafi explains that one dzine it client, for example, saw a six percent increase in user response when they changed the color of the text on its companys online inquiry form.
While that improvement may come as a surprise to some, the staff at dzine it was not surprised at all, says Crisafi. Thats because before updating the website, we tested the changes on a fraction of visitors.
This sort of scientific testing, according to Crisafi, is known as A/B testing (with two website alternatives being tested) or multivariate testing (where there are three or more website versions being tested). The purpose, he explains, is to test different versions of a website on a small sample population in order to gauge which design is most effective.
Marketers have been using this technique for years, says Crisafi. Online, this approach to website development is becoming increasingly popular and proving incredibly effective.
While such tests are most commonly performed using a websites landing page, it can be used on any page of a website for which a goal has been clearly defined.
Simple testing can be done for little or no cost by directing users to alternate versions of a page and then tracking results, says Crisafi.
