How to do an AB Test with the Consent Management Platform (CMP) TrustCommander ?

July 29, 2020 | 83 0

Why is it important to do AB tests with your CMP ?

The whole subject of consent, which is sometimes delegated to the legal department, is definitely on its way to becoming a marketing issue. Today’s marketing professionals need to do more than just obtain consent. They also need to create scenarios, carry out A/B testing and measure performance. As such, the consent rate should be turned into a marketing metric in its own right and given the same level of efforts to improve performance. All the best practices that are used to raise the performance bar on the other marketing indicators – A/B testing, look & feel, UX, etc should be applied to consent in a bid to improve the opt-in rate, which is a fundamental part of current and future marketing strategies. Consent Management Platforms are definitely a marketing issue.

That is why we recommend you to implement AB tests with your privacy banners.
