  46. Incentivize the small bottom right link to encourage procreation and copulation …<br />
  47. Use “call for mating” headers instead of general boring statements …<br />
  48. Ask yourself, would you rather …..<br /> Get a sign on bonus? <br /> Save the seal?<br /> Play Tiki resort?<br />
  49. Mating analytics<br /> Track the # of times a pop-up is shown, and a pop-up is published to stream<br /> There are three areas on a stream post users can choose to click (look below)<br /> Track the click through rates, and action completed for all 3 areas<br /> Determine which one works best!<br />
  50. Variables2track<br />Date or Cohort<br /> Type of stream post<br /> Designs or styles for a/b testing<br /># of pop-ups shown to users (a)<br /> # of published pop-ups (b)<br />Published/shown ratio = b/a<br /># of clicks from all users for pop-up (c)<br />Clicks/published ratio = c/b<br />
  51. Variables2track - contd<br />Click breakdown – Where did users click?<br /><ul><li>1 – Picture (d), % of total clicks = d/c
  52. 2 – Header (e), % of total clicks = e/c
  53. 3 – Small link (f), % of total clicks = f/c</li></ul>Actions completed<br /><ul><li>1 – Action 1 – g
  54. 2 – Action 2 – h
  55. 3 – Action 3 – I</li></ul>Total action completed = g+h+I = j<br />Total ROI = j/c or j/b or j/a depending on what you’re tracking<br />
