Should You Test Multiple Variants?

As great as multivariate testing is, if you don’t have enough traffic, a test could take months or years to complete.

In fact, in true multivariate testing—where you test to see how a large number of subtle changes interact to generate your conversion rate—you want at least 100,000 unique visitors per month.

On the other hand, you need far less traffic to simultaneously test multiple page variants.

If the time frame makes sense for your business, go for it!
