We were drafted in to kick-start the A/B testing programme for this UK-based loans provider. However, with little tracking in place and a complex form implemented as a single-page web app, there was little visibility of how users interacted with the website.
The team were excited to start implementing changes and already had a long list of improvements. But without having data to back these up, there was little confidence about the next actions that were needed.
From doing the initial discovery, we identified three main areas that needed focus:
To make the A/B testing programme a success, we needed better data and a clear framework for working together as a team.
It was great to be paired with an enthusiastic team that were eager to get started and to learn.
We started with developing and sharing a detailed tracking plan, complete with extra code developments that needed to be implemented by the developers. To help them understand these requirements and to get them on board, we delivered a course - a short introduction to Google Tag Manager for developers. With that, it was quick to get our code implemented.
With the extra code in place, we finalised the Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager configuration and visualised user journeys using Data Studio. Finally, all the stakeholders could see the funnel and where the key drop-off points were.
To make our data even richer, we also implemented extra data collection to gather data that users were sharing with the business, like household income ranges or employment status. All this was anonymised and helped us build audiences for future testing and personalisation.
Finally, we customised our testing prioritisation framework to fit business requirements and provide the foundation for how to implement testing activity.
By three months of working together we started running tests, learning more about the users.
