Change your ‘Add-to-Cart’ button copy for a 25% increase

Here’s Why it Worked

Some phrases just work better for different audiences. Going with ‘Quick Add’ vs. ‘Add-to-Cart’ or ‘Select Options’ might help some customers quickly distinguish this feature to see more product details, while ‘Add-to-Cart’ works great for others.

The word ‘Quick’ feels slightly more personable & less pressured than a stark, ‘Add’ or ‘Select.

BUT, the key is to test.

Don’t be like them. Come up with alternate (but SIMPLE) phrases that tell the customer exactly what to do.
