Create a new experiment

After entering your name and email address for the free trial, you will be redirected to your projects page. Click on the "New Experience" button on the right of the screen to begin creating a new experiment:

Set up a new A/B test

Once you click on that button, you will see this popup menu. For our purposes, we will create an A/B experiment:

For this example, we are going to call the experiment “My First Test.” Then, enter your URL in the second box.

Click the "Continue" button.

Choose the website URL you would like to test

You will be taken to the Visual Editor that displays the URL you chose and a toolbar on the top such as the below example:

Change the appearance of different variations of your website

If you look at the Page Variations section in the top left, you will notice that "Variation 1" is selected by default. This means that any changes we make to this version of the URL will not affect the original URL.

This will result in a classic A/B test, in which the "A" version is the original page and the "B" version is Variation 1.

Let’s edit an element by hovering over it with our mouse, causing an orange outline to appear:

If we click on the element, a menu should pop up beside it like this:

Let’s add a background color by clicking on “Add BG Color”. A window will display that gives us many options:

Let’s keep it simple for this example by selecting the orange square, which is the third box in the second row. Once you have done that, click OK. You will notice that the element has changed color like so:

Changes are saved automatically. Click continue:
