Growth Hack #1 – Privacy Copy Can Cost You 18.7% of Conversions:

A company tested two checkboxes for an email signup box.

Version A: just said “Terms and Conditions”
Version B: Said “100% privacy – We will never spam you”.

The treatment with the privacy policy reduced conversions by 18.70%. The result was completely counter-intuitive, but it teaches an important lesson: simply adding a privacy policy doesn’t guarantee more sing-ups. In fact, it can seriously reduce your conversion rate.

Tests indicated that the word “spam” had an undesirable effect – even when used to assure visitors that they would not receive any spam. The hypothesis is that by placing the word spam in close proximity of the form, you actually plant an idea in the minds of the prospects:

“Oh wait, could they actually end up spamming me?”
