A Step-By-Step Guide To Doing A/B Testing
SendX allows you to do A/B test on multiple subject lines to figure out which one performs better. As a marketer, we always need to keep on testing and analyzing the results, and then adjust accordingly. This A/B Testing feature in SendX allows you to take out a certain percentage of your contact base (at random), and test out multiple variations for a certain duration. After that, SendX will automatically evaluate the results and send out the winner.
