Growth marketing is all about what we can do better to attract more customers, visitors, or users to our business. This requires getting comfortable with change, because we can’t unlock greater business success without trying new things. Whether you’re running ads on social media and search, optimizing your website for conversions, or experimenting with email marketing, this growth experiment template will give you a process for testing and refining your performance marketing strategies. It’s time to make ‘optimize and iterate’ your new motto for growth marketing.
Start with a hypothesis to formulate your growth testing strategy. This can take the form of “If – Then – Because” for example: If we reduce the number of steps during the checkout process, then more customers will convert, because we’ve simplified the user experience and barriers to conversion. Your hypothesis doesn’t need to be overly complicated, but it should be informed by your data analysis and past efforts. Growth testing is an ongoing process that requires patience and perseverance. With our growth experiment template, you’ll have a reliable framework to guide you through the testing process, helping you unlock valuable insights and scale your business.
This intuitive testing tracker stands as a comprehensive go-to solution for growth experimentation. It systematically records your issues, hypotheses, and solutions and tracks the optimization results with added features and tips for prioritizing impactful, easy-to-implement optimizations.
ICE is an acronym for Impact, Confidence, and Ease. By assessing the impact, confidence, and ease of each idea allows marketers to prioritize growth experiments with the highest potential for success. Enhance your testing process by implementing these high impact tests first and deliver faster results.
