First Click

What is First Click?

When a program sets that the first user who gets a visitor to click on a link and purchase within the defined limits of cookie expiration will get a reward. The credit goes to the first marketing channel or user who interacts with the program; the program does not set an expiration date for cookies. If this is the case, the first affiliate in the sales funnel will be credited in full. A campaign’s ability to generate awareness and traffic can be determined via first-click attribution. First click testing ensures that the initial click a user makes on an interface to complete a job is straightforward. Web analytics software can tell you where people clicked but not what they wanted to accomplish.

You can ask users to do a specific task using click testing, which allows you to isolate and examine user behavior in each scenario separately. Participants are given a task (e.g., "Where would you click to buy this product?") before being shown an image of an interface, on which they click to fulfill the task. There is data on where they clicked and how long it took them to click. At the end of the test, you can get more information by asking the user why they clicked on the links. First click tests can be carried out on screenshots, sketches, wireframes, prototypes, and mock-ups, allowing you to test from the beginning of the design process to the final designs and live interfaces that will be used in production.

The ability to see exactly where users are clicking on the design provides invaluable information. Intermittent clicks might bring attention to areas of an interface that are confusing and inform future design decisions. If you employ first click testing, you can learn what users expect from basic interface elements like menus, buttons, and form components. Time taken to click can help you estimate how easy users identify the correct location to click and gives a valuable baseline for comparing the usability of design choices—measuring time taken to connect. The old design must be tested as well when performing first click testing on a new one. This helps you identify areas for development and serves as a baseline against which you can compare and contrast the new design’s improvements.
