[Quick Video] Optimizing Email Pop Ups with A/B Tests: One Step Opt-In vs. Two Step Opt-In

Aug 19, 2016 11:34:41 AM  |  BY: Robbie Hammett

You're most likely familiar with the two step opt-in email pop up. They are a type of pop up that prompts you with a yes or no question prior to asking for your email. This conversion tactic is popping up all over the web and you may be asking "does a two step pop up produce more conversions?"


There's no better way to get to the find the answer to this question than with an A/B test! Testing is a critical aspect of conversion rate optimization and can be used to improve your pop up's performance. 

In the video below, I'll show you how to properly A/B test a one step opt-in vs a two step opt-in. 

This video starts out with an introduction into A/B testing, why it's important, and how to navigate our A/B testing feature - don't worry, it's pretty simple. You can skip to 4:50 to get right to the first test.


Conventional marketing wisdom would tell you that adding a click in the customer experience is a bad thing. This is partly true when it comes to the UX of your site, but not with promotional pop ups. 

During an A/B test with Piece Water, we found that adding an Intro Screen into their New Visitor email pop up increased the overall engagement by 104% - you read that right, 104%.


The consumer psychology is simple - get someone to say "yes" to an obvious question, i.e. "Do you like free stuff?", and you are more likely to get them to say yes again, i.e. "Great! Sign up today to get a free beanie with today's order."


To set up this A/B test, log in to your Justuno account and go to the A/B Testing section.
