A/B testing is a method that allows businesses to experiment and compare two different versions of an element in a campaign or product. With A/B testing, businesses can measure and assess the impact of changes such as colors, content, images, or website structure on effectiveness and user interaction.
Associate Professor Shan Huang shared the process of conducting A/B testing, which includes selecting the element to be changed, randomly assigning a test group and a control group, implementing the changes, and collecting data. She also emphasized the importance of using data obtained from A/B testing to make informed decisions and improve digital strategies. By applying A/B testing, businesses can gain a better understanding of customer expectations and priorities, enabling them to adjust and optimize their digital strategies to achieve the highest effectiveness and provide the best user experience.
In the second keynote session, Professor Yuan Xiaoming presented on the optimization process of utilizing Livestreaming. He explained the crucial factors in delivering the best Livestreaming experience.
