TOP 5 RECOMMENDED A/B TESTING TOOLS
Testing is an essential part of ensuring new site features or design elements are watertight. While we all might have opinions on which version of a web page looks best, when conversions are at stake, we need data to back up our reasoning. A/B testing helps us differentiate between similar versions of a new page and easily identify which parts users engage with the most.
Here at Clickthrough we use a variety of tools to help us achieve results, here I’m naming a few of the top Tools in the industry and why you should consider using them.
