So much of the internet is about celebrating cats that I thought it was high time I finally gave mine the shout-out they deserve. For the past year or so, I've been schlepping to the pet store every week to stock up on cat food. I have two mature cats who are now (much to my vet's delight) on a wet food diet. Keeping up with this is expensive and time-consuming. It's also a bit confusing, trying to figure out how much to feed them--mostly because one is lazy and has a slow metabolism, and the other has always been more active. Apparently, I was getting it wrong, because the vet told me I needed to up their calorie intake.

In this age of analytics, marketers are data detectives. A/B testing can help resolve many of their quandaries related to online marketing. But, first, what is A/B testing? It is a process in which you choose the best-performing version of a webpage, by randomly displaying different versions of your site to visitors and assessing the performance of each variant against a desired metric (such as clicks or sign-ups). You can test by tweaking one page element (such as headline, call to action, or image) at a time, or you can test changes to several page elements all at once (the latter is referred to as "multivariate testing"). Thus, when you use A/B testing, you are not flying blind. You're letting data drive your design choices and decisions. Think of A/B testing as "the scientific method meeting online marketing."

The idea of using celebrities as a means to promote a product isn't anything new. Remember the Wheaties box? Thirty years ago, getting on the Wheaties box was the pinnacle of celebrity endorsements. I still remember sitting at the kitchen table when I was eight or nine years old, eating my cereal and staring at a cardboard box with Michael Jordan's picture staring back at me. Later, when I was a teenager, the celebrity "Got Milk" ads became my favorite part of flipping through any teen magazine. Do you remember the Backstreet Boys milk ad? I do, and so do thousands of other digital natives. From TV, to radio, to print, celebrities ruled the marketing world.
