On the InDefero website, you can see at the top a series of links to access the different parts of the website. In my case, I wanted to improve the percentage of people accessing the page with the plans.
Before my tests, my data from Google Analytics gave me for the month of July:
I got everywhere that just changing a link in your website could drive the conversion up, so I decided to follow the same approach and used the base case plus 2 alternatives for my link to the plan page from the homepage:

As I have a high level of conversion anyway, I do not need to run the test for too long to get meaningful results. What is really important is:
The next step is to use this alternative all the time and to improve the sign up page. If you are interested, you can do some split testing statistics here.
