This means that B2C businesses must continue to adapt their websites based on their consumers’ ever-changing wants and needs.

Aside from the indispensable value that you should already be providing to your consumer, there are a number of components (betwixt a long list) that influence conversion rate. Conversion rate optimization has become increasingly important in providing a frictionless website experience. A/B testing (comparing two versions of a single variable) can be used to help achieve the best conversion rate possible.

As digital marketers with an increased knowledge of the inner workings of a website, we cannot assume to know how a consumer might navigate.  A/B testing can improve the user-friendliness of a hotel website and streamline the conversion process. Whether your goal is to grow subscriptions, capture email addresses, gain survey responses, multiply video views or increase revenue, A/B testing has become essential in determining what drives the consumer’s decision-making process.

Consider your personal use of devices. Do you make use of your large desktop monitor the same way that you use your mobile device? Compare the screen size of your iPhone 13 Mini to Apple’s new iPad Pro. Do the elements of your website look the same?

Consumers are now spread across an extensive collection of device types, sizes and even brands. Take this into account when setting up your test. Consumers on a tablet may have different intentions than those on a desktop device. Further – look at your data and determine where the majority of your traffic and / or revenue is coming from.
