How to Run A/B Split Testing in Webflow with Humblytics

A/B split testing is a powerful technique for optimizing your Webflow website's performance by comparing two or more versions of a page to determine which one performs better. Humblytics, a Webflow-specific analytics and optimization platform, makes it easy to set up and run A/B tests directly within your Webflow projects. In this article, we'll guide you through the process of running A/B split tests in Webflow using Humblytics.

  3. Define Variants: Add the different page versions (variants) you want to test and assign a URL to each variant.
  4. Set Goals: Define the goals for your test, such as click-through rates, form submissions, or any custom events. Specify the key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure success.
  5. Select Randomization: Choose between session-level or user-level randomization based on your needs.
  6. Launch the Test: Review your test settings and click "Start Test" to begin the split testing process.

Creating A/B Page Variants

To create A/B page variants in Humblytics, follow these steps:

  1. Access the Split Testing Section: Log in to your Humblytics dashboard and navigate to the "Split Testing" section.
  2. Start a New Experiment: Click on "Start New Experiment" and copy the provided script, which will be unique to your account.
  3. Embed the Script: Paste the copied script into the <head> section of your Webflow site and publish your site.
  4. Set Up the Experiment: Enter a name for your experiment, and provide the URLs for Variant A (control) and Variant B (test).
  5. Choose Randomization Method: Select between session-level randomization (each visit is independently assigned to a test group) or user-level randomization (each unique user is consistently assigned to a test group).
  6. Launch the Experiment: Review the information you've entered and click "Start Experiment" to launch the split test.

Analyzing Split Test Data

Once your A/B split test is running, Humblytics provides valuable insights and data to help you determine the winning variant. Here's how to analyze your split test data:

  1. Access Experiment Results: Log in to your Humblytics dashboard and navigate to the "Split Testing" section. Select the experiment you want to analyze.
  2. Overview Section: Review the experiment summary, including the experiment name, creation and end dates, randomization type, and key metrics such as unique visitors, page views, conversion rates, bounce rate, average session length, and average scroll depth.
  3. Target Clicks Section: Identify the specific elements being tracked (e.g., buttons, links) and compare the number of clicks and conversion rates for each click target across variants.
  4. Form Submissions Section: Review the form submission data, including the number of submissions and conversion rates for each variant.
  5. Real-Time Monitoring: Monitor real-time data to track user interactions and conversions as they happen.
  6. Comparative Analysis: Use visual aids like graphs and charts to compare the performance of each variant and drill down into specific metrics to understand why one variant outperformed the other.
  7. Determining the Winner: Analyze the collected data to determine which variant performs better based on your predefined goals and KPIs. Ensure that the results are statistically significant before declaring a winner.
  8. Implementing the Best Variant: Once a winner is determined, implement the successful variant on your Webflow website and continue to monitor its performance.

Continuous Optimization

A/B split testing is an iterative process that should be performed continuously to optimize your Webflow website's performance. Use the insights gained from each experiment to design new tests and refine your website.

Remember to document the results and key learnings from each experiment for future reference. This will help you make informed decisions and track the progress of your optimization efforts over time.
