Everyone loves an opportunity to get a little something extra with their purchase. In e-commerce, an add-on item is known as a product bonus.
A free gift or the option to save money on a package deal could be all it takes to transform your product pages and encourage more conversions. So, how do you know what kind of product bonus your customers are looking for?
In this PickFu poll, the seller was looking for quick insights into what bonus a consumer would like as an add-on with their cat litter purchase.
The poll allowed for a lot of flexibility. Option A suggested a handy poop bag dispenser. Option B asked consumers for an open-ended answer describing the kind of alternative they might like. Notably, the seller asked for an add-on product that wasn’t cat litter.
In a world that is consistently getting busier, online grocery shopping and delivery services are becoming more popular. People want to save time whenever they can, and going to the grocery store is a chore they’re happy to skip. The mobile app developers in this PickFu poll are creating an app for online grocery shopping and wanted to split test two different mobile app experience styles of shopping in the app.
Option A is a traditional approach where grocery items are listed in the app and the user clicks to see more or add it to their cart. Option B would simulate a grocery store and allow users to virtually ‘walk’ through the aisles to shop.
Wondering how to sell supplements on Amazon? Product packaging plays a big role in the success of your product. When potential buyers glance at the main product image, they want lots of information at once.
What are they getting? If it’s a nutritional supplement or food item, what are the ingredients? How much is in each bottle?
These questions can’t all be answered in the main image alone, but it’s worth seeing how much information your target audience needs before making a decision to click through.
One PickFu user tested this question for a bottle of brain-boosting nootropic supplements, asking PickFu respondents which product they’d purchase.
Option A shows a silver and blue bottle with a brain on the front. Potential buyers get a good chunk of information about what’s inside the bottle. From this photo, they know who can safely use it, what it does, and what’s inside.
Option B uses a different color scheme. The brain is still there, but it’s got plants growing out of it. You also get to see the main ingredients and purpose of this supplement.
The most appealing fiction book covers may come down to personal preference: color, typography, imagery. That’s why it’s smart to poll a group of dedicated fiction readers because you’ll likely get answers based on plot, setting, genre, character, and structure.
One author tested book covers on PickFu to a targeted audience of 50 fiction readers. Which of the two covers would make them want to buy the book more?
Option A shows a mysterious woman peeking through a fancy mirror frame. Red swirls (perhaps blood?) highlight the silvery frame. Option B is completely different, with a flame illuminating an illustration of a woman. A cloaked person hunkers below the flame.
Some Christians grow up believing in Santa Claus, but many don’t. For Christians, Christmas tends to focus on Jesus instead of Santa. But what if the two were not mutually exclusive? After writing a book about Santa Claus and Christianity, one author tested his book title on PickFu. The author chose a target audience of self-identified Christians. What better crowd to judge?
Option A: The Gospel of Santa Claus – Inspired by the True Story of St. Nicholas
Option B: The Gospel of Santa Claus – An Inspiring Novel about the True Meaning of Christmas
Option C: The Gospel of Santa Claus – The Story of St. Nicholas and a Father’s Love for His Children
Between commitments to work, family, friends, and volunteering, everyone seems to be going a mile a minute. Meditation apps address our growing desire to slow things down and take a break from worry. But how can you make your mindfulness app more appealing to users than the next one? Designing App Store screenshots that communicate your benefits is a good place to start.
In this PickFu poll, a developer wanted to find out which App Store screenshots would lead to more downloads. Option A was an illustrated design with a variety of colors, while Option B used pictures of nature and a mostly blue palette.
The world of wellness is a crowded marketplace where it’s important to stand out. Before launching headfirst into a new business, get feedback on your ideas. This feedback helps you see if you’re on the right track with the health and fitness business names you’re considering.
In this PickFu poll, an entrepreneur wanted to see which name for a new fitness club sounds the most appealing among three choices:
What makes someone want to learn a new language? Is it the romantic nature of discovering another culture? A desire to communicate with a broader range of people? Maybe it’s a little bit of both. And when those language learners search for books to help them achieve success, they’ll want their desires reflected on the book’s cover. And the best method for testing covers for a book? PickFu, of course.
Author Frederic Bibard ran a PickFu poll to find out which of two covers would appeal the most to an audience of people who read 1-3 books a month.
Option A features a lot of text that tells readers what they’re getting. The illustrations on the cover depict iconic French symbols.
Option B eliminates all but the title and author text (and a ‘+ Audio’ insert to let people know they get a free audiobook, too). This less-crowded cover also features well-known French sites but presents them in a more whimsical way.
Developing a new mobile game requires many decisions along the way. Some decisions are obvious, like coming up with a mobile app name and designing an icon for your game. Some decisions are much less obvious though, like choosing a name for the in-game currency.
In the mobile app GawkBox, you play mini-games against other creators and create your own community through live chat. The developers behind GawkBox used PickFu to poll 50 mobile gamers to decide on a name for its virtual currency. The team was trying to decide between calling it Goins or G-Bucks.
Even the most seasoned authors need advice on which book covers attract their readers the most. Danielle Girard, author of 13 books — including several bestsellers and award-winners — created a PickFu poll to test book cover designs for her newest e-book series.
She asked 50 readers of e-books this question: “Which cover (and why) do you prefer for ‘Dead Center,’ the first book in the Gritty, Pulse-Pounding, Female Police Suspense Series set in San Francisco?”
Option A emphasizes the title and author names with a large, crackly font set against a moody background. A red, blood-like substance drips down the image of a gray sky and tilted bridge.
Option B’s cover shrinks the font size but adds more text, along with the image of a woman caught in crosshairs and a twinkling nighttime cityscape.
