Improve your A/B testing with Zia suggestions

Dear customers,
We're thrilled to announce a suite of enhancements to our webform A/B testing feature in Zoho CRM, brought to you by Zia, designed to make your testing process more intuitive, efficient, and results-driven.

The enhancements will help the users by providing the following Zia suggestions in A/B testing:
  • A/B testing suggestions for low-performing webforms.
  • Variant suggestions for webform A/B testing.
  • Suggestions on traffic allocation for webforms.
  • Suggestions to extend the test duration.
  • Informed launch of variants and conversion rate comparison.
  • Dynamic traffic allocation.
  • Statistical significance and confidence scoring.
Webforms are an integral part of Zoho CRM. They are the gateways to customer data, bridging the gap between your prospects and your offerings. Optimizing webforms can significantly improve user experience and engagement, thereby increasing conversion rates.
One of the most powerful tools for optimizing webforms is A/B testing. This allows you to test two versions of your webform simultaneously to see which one performs better. The aim is to make data-driven decisions that can improve engagement, conversion rates, and ultimately, your bottom line.
So, without further ado, let's quickly look into the enhancements we've made.

Zia suggests A/B testing on low-performing webforms

Our newly enhanced Zoho CRM now features a comprehensive, intelligent system that proactively suggests A/B testing for low-performing webforms. With the help of Zia, the system meticulously evaluates your webforms based on their conversion rates and field-filled rates, and determines if they are low-performing webforms. If these metrics fall below set thresholds–such as a low conversion rate or a field-filled rate less than the 10th percentile–Zia will recommend conducting an A/B test for these forms.

Zia-suggested variants for webform A/B testing

As you initiate your A/B test setup, Zoho CRM now steps in with insightful, analytics-based recommendations to enhance your form's conversion rate.

The system studies your existing webforms, identifying fields with low filled rates, and those left empty. Subsequently, it suggests strategic changes, such as reordering or removing certain fields, to optimize your webforms for maximum user engagement and completion rates.

Suggestions on traffic allocation for webforms

The A/B testing feature now comes with an intelligent approach to traffic allocation. If a specific webform variant is underperforming, the system will suggest a traffic reallocation. This ensures the bulk of your audience is exposed to the more effective forms, amplifying your chances of conversion.

Moreover, if a variant leads to a disappointing conversion rate, Zoho CRM will recommend a traffic split, reducing exposure to the underperforming form. You also have the option to divert traffic from a poorly performing form to a better-performing one.

Zia suggestions to extend the test duration

Zia will now suggest an extension to the test duration when the initial test does not generate enough data to declare a winner conclusively.
The suggestion to extend the test duration is made based on the number of visitors who interacted with the webform during the initial testing period. Thus, the extended test duration would allow a more comprehensive data collection.

Informed launch of variants and conversion rate comparison

When launching a variant, it's essential to make a decision based on comprehensive data. If the original form outside of the A/B test performs better in terms of conversion rate compared to the winning variant, Zoho CRM will proactively alert you. This ensures you are fully informed about the relative performance of all forms before launching a variant. Given these insights, you have the opportunity to extend the A/B testing duration to achieve more accurate results if necessary.

Dynamic traffic allocation by Zia

We've introduced an innovative dynamic traffic allocation feature for webform variants, taking a major step towards marketing optimization.
If the user is not sure about allocating the traffic to the right webform, they can use dynamic allocation where the traffic is initially split equally across all the forms. Gradually, based on the forms' performances, traffic allocation will be dynamically adjusted so the high-performing forms get more traffic, avoiding unwanted traffic from the low-performing forms.

Statistical significance and confidence scoring

To provide you with a robust and reliable understanding of your A/B testing results, we will now provide a confidence score for the declared winner. This score is based on the statistical significance of the test, ensuring you can make informed decisions with confidence.

Points to be noted

There are two circumstances under which we will not recommend extending the A/B test duration:
  • If a clear winner has been determined with a high degree of certainty (a confidence score of 95% or above).
  • If extending the testing period exceeds the maximum limit of 90 days, it won't be suggested, even if the test has only been running for 60 days and would need 40 more days to complete.
  • The adaptive traffic reallocation and split suggestions will be offered only when the system has enough data to make reliable determinations. 
That's all on the enhancements. Please give us your feedback and suggestions on these changes. 

P.S. These enhancements are currently available for all users across all DCs.
