This is your first time? This article will guide you step by step for your first use of Kameleoon, from the creation of your account to the launching of your first tests.
Open your Kameleoon account
First things first: you need to create your Kameleoon account. This step is free and very quick.
To do so, go to http://kameleoon.com and click on the “Sign up” button located on the top right of the page.
The registration form opens in a pop-in. Fill in the required fields and click on the “Create a free account” button.
Note: you must indicate a website, but you can if you need to, add other websites later on your account. It can be very useful if you want to test both your classic website and your mobile website, or if you need to test Kameleoon on a pre-production website for example.
Start with Kameleoon
Congratulation, your Kameleoon account has been created! Things are getting serious now.
The following pop-in opens, allowing you to type in the URL on the page on which you want to launch Kameleoon editor.
Explore the editor
The editor launches on your website. A quick tutorial will allow you to see the main functionalities to learn how to use Kameleoon.
You are now able to change the elements of your page and to create your first A/B test.
To learn more about Kameleoon editor, you can read our article Using Kameleoon editor.
Finalize the test
The last step to create a test is the finalization. To access this part, click on the “Test finalizer” button on the header.
The window below appears:
To launch a test, follow the three steps on your screen:
- 1st step: Select the variation to include in the test, by checking the box next to it. If you created several variations, you can select as many as you want to.
- 2nd step: Choose the visitors targeted on your test. By default, the test will launch on the current page, and the traffic will be equally split between the original page and your variation.
- 3rd step: Choose your reporting tool. Only Kameleoon is configured by default, but you can add other reporting tools such as Google Analytics.
These three steps will be required each time you’ll launch an A/B test.
Check the variation(s) to include in your test and choose your reporting tool – here Kameleoon – and the main goal of your test. You can find more information about this step in our Quick start guide.
Once you’ve filled in all fields, you can click on the “Next step” button on the bottom right of the window.
Install Kameleoon script
Your test is almost ready to be launched! Almost? Yes, you have a last small step before launching your tests: installing Kameleoon script on your website.
Once you’ve clicked on the “Next step” button, a pop-in opens and offers you to see a fictional results page, to go on and continue to discover Kameleoon, or to install Kameleoon.
Click on “Install Kameleoon” to see the page below:
This page will explain to you in four simple steps needed to install the script on your website.
If you do not want to install it by yourself, the “Forward to my developer” button allows you to forward very easily all these information to someone of your choice.
If you website requires an advanced configuration, or if you cannot find this page, you can read our specific documentation about the installation of Kameleoon.
