Great software with a few glitches

2019-12-16

Using VWO allows us to run sophisticated A/B tests for our clients and help them grow their business.

Great tool for marketing agencies!

2019-12-16

I really like how the reports can easy be shared with the clients and represent the data well.

Pros

The program is very user friendly, specifically the visual editor in the A/B testing tool. It makes it easy for people who don't know coding and web dev to create an A/B test.

Cons

The thing that is most frustrating is that we can't store data forever.

Thanks for sharing the feedback. We are glad that you liked the platform and especially the Insights features. Regarding your concern about data retention for Insights, we have given the maximum duration for 90 days as it has been noticed that businesses usually get to see a trend by analyzing the data for a quarter and can take their decisions accordingly. And you can also download data and store it for future reference. However, we have surely noted your feedback for consideration. - Venus from VWO

Useful when you're just getting started

2018-02-22

We were able to see some cursory user behavior data on different sites as well as set up some simple A/B tests for Wordpress.

Pros

I like the interface and it does help us gain some useful information about the way people are interacting with the websites we design.

Cons

This software definitely has limitations, and I wouldn't recommend it to someone looking to get really in-depth data about user behavior or split testing.

User-Friendly, Data-Oriented Tool

2019-12-16

Increasing website form fills, understanding the user journey, understanding drop-off points.

Pros

This tool allows users to dive very deep into what they're trying to research or gather data on. It can do a ton and get very granular, but is still user friendly at the same time.

Cons

It doesn't work quite as well for smaller websites that don't get a ton of traffic.

Beware of losing Data and Features with No Warning!

2019-08-07

There are no notifications in the software that features or data will eb lost. no email communication nothing.

Pros

The core functionalists of this software are valuable however read the cons.

Cons

We have been using VWO for years and one day they decided to rip features out and separate them meaning if you were doing an Observation test on a webpage and it included, heat map, scroll map, and form data all the data was lost when they decided to separate all those features and charge more.

Well worth the investment!

2019-12-16

I don't envision us leaving the tool anytime soon.

Pros

As a user of Optimizely and Adobe Target, I have been pleasantly surprised by the features I have been able to use with VWO. The reporting update (probably density, box plotting, etc.) has been especially useful in data analysis.

Cons

Breakage doesn't really affect the split tests themselves, just the reporting...but still, it's not great when I go to report for a client and have to wait a day or 2 for things to get back online.

Value for Money but Limited functionality

2019-12-16

One has to look at the data in detail downstream to really understand what is driving user behaviour

Pros

It has an API out so you can push the data into other tools for more detailed analysis.

Cons

It is slow and clunky. It is not clear how it does the allocation to variants when a user has multiple variants

Exceptional detail in data and tracking research to insights

2019-12-17

We have been using VWO for a variety of tests within the business, from image styles and content focus to testing copywriting within buttons right the way up to replacing sections and the way our products are displayed. I has been a huge growth area within the business and helped us gain a lot of traction.

Pros

I liked that I can connect the goals to traffic segments in google analytics and see how the tests affected the conversion journey further down the funnel, I like the UI and functionality of setting up tests, as well as how the tool visualises data from running and completed tests

Cons

I think within a test the multi-layers of a menu could be simplified to focus on tasks that would be relevant to the stage at which a test is running

The most comprehensive website testing and optimization tool on the market

2018-03-27

Pros

They started to implement some new functionality and now, they have an advanced and fully comprehensive testing and optimization solution.

Cons

Their optimization product (full suite of tools) is far too expensive for most businesses and requires a lot of management time - it's not a case of switching on a button and seeing results, the tools only enable you to create tests and track their progress.

Easy to set up tests and analyze your results

2019-04-19

That's definitely led to a lot of disappointment over the years, but we did get a few huge wins that really stuck and were verified over the years whenever we'd re-test them or accidentally re-test them (for example by accidentally running the old version of the page for a while and seeing sales drop).

Pros

It's super-easy to set up tests, whether they're tests using the built-in editor to edit individual pages or spilt tests where the test redirects the control page to a different url.

Cons

You have to manage all the cookies yourself using a third party platform, so we eventually gave up on it because it was so complicated.

An Excellent Product with Excellent Support

2019-03-22

Plus, it's very easy to create your tests b/c they use an overlay.

Pros

I liked the dashboard and the overall ease of use of getting my tests started.

Cons

It can be expensive if you don't use it very often. Every once in a while I had trouble getting the code to be recognized on my site, but support was always fast and helpful. It was also my fault once b/c they tell you not to use GTM to add the code, but that's exactly what I did.

We were able to dramatically increase conversion rate, with not only the tools but their expertise.

Pros

We were able to a part of their beta program where they would roll out the most recent updates to our account. This was a great way to try new features and be able to communicate our feedback to the team.

Cons

It is a little pricey, but we got a lot of value, so no real complaints.

Very good software for A/B tests

2019-03-24

I use this software for at least 3 years and it's the easiest one I've found.

Pros

Very easy to use, just copy/paste the script and create the test in the WYSYWYG, and that works Some special features, like heatmaps, are great too.

Cons

The stats are sometimes hard to understand (especially the real difference between quick learning and the other options).
