The details matter. It’s one of the big lessons of A/B testing, in which double- or even triple-digit conversion-rate gains can result from seemingly tiny tweaks.
In today’s A/B test, we’re looking at the impact of detail in a slightly different way—as in, how detailed your landing page copy and images should get.
Version A features a simple 4-line headline over a middle-distance shot of craft supplies.
Version B displays a close-up photo of a similar art project in progress, and packs much more into the 6-line headline: “You’re About To Discover 151 Scrapbooking Tips To Help You Save Money, Time & Boost Your Creativity Through the Roof!

If you chose Version A you are correct!
Version A, with a 95.71% probability of outperforming Version B, increased opt-ins by 47.13%.
Although we can’t say with total certainty why this change caused the increase, here are a couple of my speculations:
1. Visitors were more interested in improving their scrapbook layout with ease, rather than saving money or becoming more creative.
2. Version A’s headline is more specific, making the benefits of the e-book more vivid for visitors.
3. Although the two background photos are similar, the brighter elements in Version B, combined with the longer headline, may have made the page feel more cluttered and distracted visitors from opting in.
Your takeaways from a test with multiple variables can be rather murky. However, a test like this can help direct you toward future tests on your landing pages.
In this case, I would recommend running a follow-up A/B test featuring the copy from Version A on both pages and testing only the backgrounds against one another. This would allow you to determine if the background truly had an impact and if you should consider using the same background on another landing page.
