Experiment Summary

Timeframe: 12/14/2017 - 12/19/2017

FamilyLife was running their year-end campaign and wanted to test match language on their website pop-up versus no match language.

Research Question

Does match language on a popup increase donor conversion rate?


C: No Match Language


Treatment Name Conv. Rate Relative Difference Confidence
C: No Match Language 0.22%
T1: With Match Language 0.26% 19.3% 80.4%

This experiment has a required sample size of 103,294 in order to be valid. Unfortunately, the required sample size was not met and a level of confidence above 95% was not met so the experiment results are not valid.

Key Learnings

The experiment did not validate, but saw a trend towards a 19% increase in gifts with match language on the popup. People were more likely to give when they know that their gift will be matched and make a greater impact.
