Two factions at my company are battling over which homepage redesign is best. Was hoping I could get some designers to take a quick (like, one minute) preference test to help out.

After taking the test, if you'd like to give more in-depth feedback here, by all means please do.

Thanks!

Thanks!
Do some live AB testing to see which one results in more of whatever you are going for (purchases / inquiries / signup / etc)

That's been discussed and will happen. This is an interim step because of some hard heads (plus production time is longer than mockup time).

Thanks. Our profession really can be a beatdown sometimes. Everyone with Word or PowerPoint is a designer. :rolleyes::(
Sad and very true…

The issue I've found many "board level" good ideas are heard and added into the design process due to seniority even if it's a terrible idea. Well it keeps me busy as a dreamkiller.

As a designer and a golfer I prefer, "700,000 Tee Times. 6,300 Golf Courses. One Search. No Fees."

That makes more sense to me than, "Saving 78% on the same round of golf."

Plus the blue bar lends more contrast.

The only problem is that visual hierarchy trumps all.

I still read, "A free time search engine with no strings attached" before I get to any of the good stuff.

The problem is that no one has ever done what we're doing for golf, so we felt like we needed to educate the user that they're searching multiple websites at once. The roadmap calls for moving that bit further down the page at some point (3-6 months) after our traffic gets up. I've already designed that one, in fact.

I like the blue band one...but im not sure if this is a troll topic
.
Thanks for the feedback, but…what's trollish about it?

Apologies - I tried taking it. My browser crashed. Now it won't let me take it again.

FWIW, I preferred the one with more blue and the text "Search over x courses and compare tee times." I felt as though that was a better call to action than "Save up to 78%..."

Thanks for the feedback. Odd that it wouldn't let you take it again.
