Step 1: Create a variation

If you followed along in the previous course, you have already created variations in the Optimizely Editor. If not, to get to the Editor, just go to the Home page and click New Experiment, then enter the URL of the page you want to test!

If you've already implemented the Optimizely snippet, you should be able to load the page without problems, but if you run into any trouble, we've got you covered.

Use the Optimizely Visual Editor, which lets you make changes to your page in a “What You See Is What You Get” (WYSIWYG) manner, to test your variation against your original page. We cover this in the previous course, but you can also read our Visual Editor Guide.

If you're more code-savvy, you can also use our Code Editor to create variations that way.
