Metrics determine what an experiment will measure. You can target specific clicks or page-views. Examples include clicking on a “buy now” button or landing on an order confirmation page. This is how you can tell if your experimental changes had a positive affect on your business.

5. Start the experiment

Your experiment is created, you’ve made variation changes, and set a metric. Now, you’re ready to make the experiment live by hitting the start button. A portion of users will begin seeing the changes, and metric data will be recorded.

SplitWit will let you know when the data has reached statistical significance and determine a winner between your variations.
