Focus on the Family ran a year end campaign in 2018. They hypothesized that sending an email that looked like a “FWD” would increase engagement and conversion. They decided to test this against an email with a subject line that didn’t have “FWD” in it.
How will a forward email impact conversion?
|Treatment Name||Conv. Rate||Relative Difference||Confidence||Average Gift|
This experiment has a required sample size of 30,845,701 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.
This experiment is not valid because the level of confidence is only 51.2%. Having a forwarded email has no impact on conversion. The reason for this is because motivation is so high of the year. In the context of a year end campaign, a forwarded email has no impact on donor conversion.
