A/B Testing Idea #256 - Engage your users with a simple task or question
Place your customers in a positive frame of mind by giving them a small "victory". Indeed, ask your client to perform a simple task before you can ask then for something longer and more complicated. Emphasise the fact that they have achieved the first step to encourage them to do the second. For instance, ask them to answer a simple question such as "Did you find what you were looking for" and then asked to complete a satisfaction survey.
