How to Create A/B Tests
So, insert your images into the SmartboardMRtool and target a group of customers or display to a random sample (the number of participants is unlimited), capture their immediate responses/initial reactions to the ideas, and see a sprinkling of numbers appear all over the smartboard for both A and B concept/versions. Then ask the participants to click into the numbers to respond to each other's thoughts and discuss areas of agreement, disagreement and development.
You could use two smartboards to show the two designs to two different groups. In this case you can understand the impact of the change in brand design (adding the Colonel and the 'so good' message) in one board. The heat map clearly shows a preference for the new logo, with the extra imagery and text eliciting lots more positive feedback.
Next time you think you don't have the time and resource to do some testing and make a real difference to your next product launch or campaign think again! You can run smartboards as stand-alone research, within communities, panels and live chat focus groups.
