If you chose Version B you are correct!

Version B, with a 99.77% probability of outperforming Version A, increased opt-ins by 68.45%.

Although we can’t say with 100% certainty why this change caused the increase, here are a few of my speculations:

  1. The projected savings communicated in Version B increased the perceived value of the product offering.
  2. The body copy in Version A may have negatively affected the product’s appeal as the visitor may be more interested in making their own coaching program, rather than learning what works best for the competition.

Not all visitors are the same, but testing your landing page body copy may be something to consider for your own landing pages.
