When I look at a new A/B test, I usually have a pretty strong hunch about which variant converted better and why.
But today’s test has me a little stumped. Maybe you can help piece together a convincing theory in the comments.
As you may know, we feature a lot of single-variable tests, which typically make it easy to find the source of a big impact on conversions. However, in this A/B test, Erich Andreas from Your Guitar Sage tested copy changes in two different areas: his subheadline and his call-to-action-button. It’s not necessarily easy to spot all the differences right away, so I’ll break them down here:
- Subheadline: FREE Live Guitar Webcast Plus Live Q&A.
- Button: Register My Seat to the LIVE Webcast
- Subheadline: FREE Webcast For All Guitar Players. Live Video Webcast PLUS Q&A.
- Button: Yes Erich, Sign Me Up For FREE
Which version do you think increased opt-ins for this LeadPage® by 50.83%?

If you chose Version B you are correct!
Version B, with a 100% probability of outperforming Version A, increased opt-ins by 50.83%.
Although we can’t say with total certainty why this change caused the increase, here are a few of my speculations:
- Version B specifies that the webcast is “for all guitar players,” potentially capturing the attention of a broader audience than Version A.
- The call-to-action button in Version B emphasized the word “FREE,” which may have enticed more of Erich’s visitors.
Not all visitors are the same, but A/B testing your landing page copy may be something to consider for your own LeadPages®.
