What is Grow Labs?
Grow Labs is a setting in your Grow dashboard that allows you to participate in future A/B tests for different features of Grow.
You can find this setting in your Grow Publisher Portal > Grow Settings > General:
What’s an A/B Test?
An A/B test is where there are two variations of a feature shown to visitors and it’s split amongst traffic.
For example, say we run an A/B test for 30% of traffic:
15% will see version A of the test
15% sees version B of the test
Version A refers to the ‘control' or the current version of the feature. Version B refers to the test or the new version of the feature.
An example of a previous A/B test would be when we tested different versions of the Grow widget:
Will I know what test will be running?
Not really - unless you catch it out in the wild!
Enabling Grow Labs allows the development team to push out tests more quickly and allows us the ability to test different recommendations/settings for Grow.
All these tests are done in the name of gathering that first-party data, which means more $$ in your pockets.
OK - Great! Why Should I Turn It On?
Running these types of tests allows the Grow development team to make data-driven decisions about new features for Grow.
We’ll analyze the results of the test and ask questions such as:
Did we see more subscribers?
Did we see more sign-ups for Grow?
If the answer is yes, that’s what we want to know so we can deploy changes or recommendations to our Grow users.
