A recent study conducted by Omniture for Marketing Sherpa shows that a single-column opt-in form outperforms a double-column form on email subscription landing pages.

Using multivariate tests, Omniture examined a number of variables on landing pages to see which ones improved performance. They discovered that one is better than two when it comes to how you lay out a group of fields on a sign-up form.

The one-column layout featured the following fields running down the landing page as follows:

First name
Last name
Zip/Postal Code
Home Phone
E-mail Address
Confirm E-mail Address

The two-column layout featured the same fields side-by-side as follows:

First name || Last name
Address || Apt/Suite/Business
City || State/Province
Zip/Postal Code || Home Phone
E-mail Address || Confirm E-mail Address

This finding that a single-column opt-in form outperforms a double-column form is good news for email marketing executives who need to improve their landing page conversion rates. According to Marketing Sherpa, a few simple design tweaks (made after testing) can easily boost your opt-in conversions by up to 40%.

These findings are published in the Email Marketing Benchmark Guide 2007. Known as the "Email Stats Encyclopedia," MarketingSherpa's Guide brings you exclusive results data from 3,637 real-life marketers' campaigns, plus design advice, filtering info and list growth help into one handy Guide for you.
