National Breast Cancer Foundation was offering free weekly healthy living tips as an acquisition offer. They wanted to test whether adding an example of the tips one might receive each week would increase conversion rate on the landing page. The rest of the page remained the same.
Does adding an example of content in an offer increase conversion rate?

|Treatment Name||Conv. Rate||Relative Difference||Confidence|
|C:||Without tip example||50.2%|
|T1:||With tip example||39.2%||-21.8%||99.4%|
This experiment has a required sample size of 159 in order to be valid. Since the experiment had a total sample size of 616, and the level of confidence is above 95% the experiment results are valid.
Flux Metrics Affected
The Flux Metrics analyze the three primary metrics that affect revenue (traffic, conversion rate, and average gift). This experiment produced the following results:
0% increase in traffic
× 21.8% decrease in conversion rate
× 0% increase in average gift
The addition of the tip decreased conversion by 22%. This could be due to added friction on an already high-converting page. The addition of more text did not add to the value of the landing page, so it distracted people from downloading.
