Google Optimise A/B Test for Electrician

The Test

In order to find out the exact uplift bringing reviews to CLF Services website, we ran what is known as an A/B test.

For our test, we showed 50% of the website visitors the website with the goodreviews widget and 50% of visitors without. We then tracked how these visitors took revenue-driving action on the website. For CLF Services, these actions were calls made on the website and quotes/enquiry submissions.

We ran the test through Google Optimise, a commonly used A/B Testing tool and used his existing Google Analytics goals.

 

The Result
