If you're looking to better convert your daily website traffic, it's great to try new things but more importantly, test your conversion tactics. 

One way to drive action from website visitors is to create urgency. If we can create a sense of urgency using our website pop ups, this could lead to an increase in conversions. A common conversion tactic to create urgency is to use a countdown timer within a pop up. 

Below, I'll show you how to set up an A/B test to see if adding a countdown timer to your pop up will increase conversions. 



Running an A/B Test 

Check out the video below on how to set up and duplicate your promotions, one with a countdown timer and without a countdown timer. The point of this a/b test is to see how the countdown timer affects the engagement and conversion rates of your visitors.

The video begins with an intro to A/B testing, though you can skip ahead to 5:00 to get started.
