Your headline and supporting copy should function like a 1-2 punch. You get attention with the headline, then immediately follow up with supporting copy to give them an extra push. The goal? Knock ’em out with overwhelming value.
In today’s featured A/B test, The Rocket Company tried out 2 different versions of an event page with 2 different headline/supporting copy combinations. One version is quite detailed—”Ready to Stop Stressing About Inconsistent Giving in Your Church? Learn the 3 Ways to Successfully Implement Digital Giving in your church, in this LIVE training session.”
The other—”How to Launch a New Era of Giving in Your Church: This is TOO important to miss”—is, well, punchier. On the other hand, it’s also a little less informative.
Which version do you think increased opt-ins for this LeadPage by 13.63%?

If you chose Version B you are correct!
Version B, with a 99.95% probability of outperforming Version A, increased opt-ins by 13.63%.
Although we can’t say with total certainty why this change caused the increase, here are a couple of my speculations:
1. Phrasing the headline as a question in Version B may have captured more attention by helping visitors relate their own problems to the event topic.
2. The supporting copy in Version B spelled out what visitors would take away from the event (3 ways to implement digital giving), which may have made the event seem more valuable.

Not all visitors are the same, but A/B testing your copy may be something to consider for your own LeadPages®.
