Highlights

AB Tasty and VWO are both A/B testing tools designed to help businesses to test the performance of different versions of web content. Both A/B testing tools are used by businesses of all sizes, though both are slightly more popular with small to mid-sized businesses compared to larger enterprises.

Features

VWO and AB Tasty both include essential A/B testing features such as split testing and heatmaps, but they also each have standout features that set them apart from each other.

VWO is praised by users for its simple to use interface that can be used by businesses without many technical resources to devote to it. Nontechnical users have an easier time learning to use VWO compared to its alternatives. VWO also includes fully customizable user surveys out of the box. Lastly, VWO provides robust reporting tools so users can easily present any findings from their tests.

AB Tasty provides local customer success managers to businesses that require hands-on support. Additionally, AB Tasty includes a testing API that allows users to create highly customized tests that may not be available out of the box. Lastly, AB Tasty includes a widget library that allows users to quickly make changes to web content.

Limitations

VWO and AB Tasty both include robust testing features, but they also have a few limitations that are important to consider.

VWO has live support, but doesn’t offer local success managers. Businesses looking for more hands-on support will not be well served by VWO’s support options. Additionally, VWO doesn’t include a testing API. While the testing features VWO offer are powerful and varied out of the box, businesses looking to create highly customized tests may prefer the flexibility offered by AB Tasty’s test API.

AB Tasty’s interface isn’t complex to use, but it isn’t as simple as VWO and may require more technical resources comparatively. Additionally, while it is possible to create custom surveys with AB Tasty, it is through integration with Google Forms rather than an out of the box functionality. This can be an issue for organizations looking for an all in one solution or who cannot use Google Forms for any reason. Lastly, AB Tasty’s reporting features are not as robust as VWO’s, so additional reporting tools may be needed for organizations with complex reporting needs.

Pricing

VWO starts at $199.00 per month, but also offers two packages for larger businesses. These additional packages do not have open pricing information, but sales teams can reach out for a quote.

AB Tasty is priced depending on the business and doesn’t provide published pricing information.

Likelihood to Recommend

AB Tasty

A/B Tasty tool allows us do easy testing without burdening our limited developer resources all the time. Reports are simple enough to interpret. Support has been excellent and proactive, also the onboarding was successful. It is also an advantage that we have the possibility to drive all our traffic to the test versions rather than being limited to specific user amount per month. We can recommend A/B Tasty for testing purposes, as the platform keeps it’s promises, doesn’t require too much technical knowledge and the support is excellent.

VWO

Our marketing team does a lot of creative testing around messaging and imagery. VWO is well suited for this type of testing and can yield great results if you define your conversion goals correctly. However, when we have tried to do more substantial/advanced changes through VWO (such as re-positioning content or modifying elements in a form), we have had some challenges and not been able to get the desired tests working correctly.

Pros

AB Tasty

  • Customer-focused. Over the past year, AB Tasty has worked with us to overcome many obstacles (e.g. tracking hurdles, ITP issues, etc.). The team always finds a solution in a timely manner to ensure we're able to execute on experiments.
  • Reliability. One of the biggest hurdles earlier this year were the ITP regulations set out by Apple. Over 40% of our ad traffic was Safari users. AB Tasty was using 3rd party cookies but quickly migrated over to a local session storage solution that circumvented the issue.
Matt Mattson | TrustRadius Reviewer

VWO

  • VWO has a strong support team willing to help provide answers to questions during the setup process. During setup, we had some questions regarding implementation across a significant number of sites and they were able to ease dev team concerns and provide detailed best practices to streamline integration.
  • Some of the initial results of a few of the initial tests raised some questions internally. We setup a call and were able to quickly address the questions and find some opportunities to leverage moving forward.
  • I discovered a bug within the UI that lead to some questions internally. I was able to report it and the problem was fixed rather quickly and their team followed up with a thank you for reporting it and to report the issue was now resolved.

Cons

AB Tasty

  • Sometimes the platform is a little glitchy and requires a refresh.
  • Would be great to be able to see the experiments and projects on a timeline with their status and main result to have an immediate view of ongoing and completed projects.
  • Email notification for when an experiment reaches a certain confidence level.

VWO

  • The user interface within VWO does take a bit of time to get used to, especially as it pertains to switching back and forth between tests. When running multiple experiments on a site at a time, a clear and succinct dashboard for everything in one place would be helpful (as opposed to needing to switch between A/B, multivariate, etc).

AB Tasty's tool as well as the support team completely met my goals on A/B Testing. Editing a test is really easy and AB Tasty made the marketing team free to launch nearly any test. Reporting is also easy to set up and give us the information needed to keep improving transformation on landing pages and forms

It's great value and we think we've ironed out all the major teething troubles. However, if we experience any more bugs or problems that significantly slow us down then we're seriously considering switching to Optimizely, which I haven't personally tested but have heard great things about from my CRO peers

I gave Visual Website Optimizer a rating of 8 because it is overall a great product to use. Setting up and keeping track of various tests is easy and straight forward. The only reason why this product is not rated higher is because the support documents online leave a lot of room for improvement.

VWO doesn't appear to slow down our website at all, though some customers with adblockers like UBlock Origin have been known to not see entire pages if VWO is making changes to the page at a macro level (background, font, etc). This is rare though.

Support is good, but it would be better if it was quicker or if AB Tasty provided a quicker SLA. At times, you require stuff urgently but AB Tasty support isn't as quick as I personally like it to be.

While their online document support is lacking a simple email to their support team will almost always get responded to the next day. It has however taken more than one email to explain the problem to the support team till they understood the problem. The solution I was given also only half fixed the problem the rest I figured out on my own.

Training was good, just limited to the onboarding process. They walked through all of the steps it takes to get started in VWO and each of the modules, along with giving us ideas for starting our first test. I feel like it could be better if there was a guided process within the VWO program to continue to educate you along the way, and a way to turn that off for experienced users.

Overall, the implementation of VWO is straightforward. If you've got a straightforward way of deploying code to all of your test pages, either a good CMS or a TMS, then implementation should be a breeze. There is no tweaking to be done to the code itself, and once deployed it has the flexibility to cope with different VWO modules (tracking, conversion analysis, session analysis) without modification.

Alternatives Considered

AB Tasty

We selected AB Tasty mostly because we got a sense that their dev and customer service teams were going to go above and beyond to help us out. We were right! The cost was also a factor as they came in a small bit lower, but cost wasn't the only factor.
Jeff Copetas | TrustRadius Reviewer

VWO

I used Google Optimize when it had just launched. It was therefore not yet a competitor to VWO. I haven't used it in roughly half a year time, so a lot has probably changed.I still use Hotjar for certain features that VWO offers, but which I think function better in Hotjar. I for instance prefer the Hotjar heatmaps, because I can elect to ignore certain elements on the webpage, such as a cookie consent pop up. A simple difference which makes me like Hotjar recordings more is that I can view a recording and click next, rather than going back to the overview and selecting the next recording.

The product seems infinitely scalable for our needs (small business) and we've never had any issue with loading VWO-edited elements. I will say, though, that online customers with ad blockers have been known to not see certain VWO elements as their third-party scripts are disabled.

Return on Investment

AB Tasty

  • Since we use AB tasty our conversion rates have significantly increased on the Watch pages.
  • We can report positive comments about the evolutions of our interfaces, from our expert users. And so improved customer satisfaction.
  • The solution allows us to validate or invalidate without taking major risk while gaining in reactivity, our proposals relook pages.
  • Commitment rates are much higher, multiplied by 2 or 3, when we implement customizations that are relevant. These customizations are very relevant insofar as we are governed by the seasonality of events as a media site.
Valentin Viguier | TrustRadius Reviewer

VWO

  • The ability to offer a CRO service is greatly enhanced by VWO, as it allows us to run tests for clients
  • The editor means to some extent we don't need much developer resource to run the tests, lowering costs of doing so
