Adobe Target

I feel you need to have a dedicated developer who works solely in Test & Target. If you have that resource, and ensure to train the resource sufficiently, it will make it much easier to be able to run tests and have a clean testing program.

ClickTale

It is well suited to businesses with a full time web analyst that will be using the tools to create actionable reports that drive action in the company. It is less appropriate where companies are just looking for some new tools and it will be forgotten soon after implementation. If a website is critical to your business and you have dedicated resources or consultants to help you understand the data, then it is invaluable. I love it.

Pros

  • Advanced targeting capabilities - TnT allows you to write your own JavaScript/Rhino code in situations when the out-of-the-box features aren't enough.
  • Integration with SiteCatalyst - test data is pushed into SiteCatalyst for comprehensive reporting.
  • Rapid test creation - this can be achieved via "local" HTML offers, redirects or referencing AEM/CQ5 components.

  • Heat Maps - we used and liked CrazyEgg in the past, and it was a cheaper tool that was easy to use. ClickTale gives us additional capabilities with better data about scroll reach, mouse movements, clicks and a summary report that shows what parts of our pages are getting attention. A product manager asked us yesterday for insights on how his product page was performing, and we were easily able to send him the reports in the heat map section.
  • Visitor recordings - We get good data on our website using analytics tools like GA, HubSpot and ClickTale, but it is very helpful to watch actual visitor recordings for certain visitor segments. If we add a new page or new feature to our website and notice a trend, we can easily drill down and watch visitors and see how they are interacting with the page.
  • Conversion funnels - We do a lot of our analysis in Google Analytics and you can set up conversion funnels in GA if you know how to do it. The problem is you can't segment the data and the aggregated data is not as helpful. ClickTale makes it very simple to do conversion funnels, and you can segment them with just a few clicks.

Cons

  • There might be areas where Adobe Test and Target needs some improvements, but I am not aware of them. I really had not issues with it when I was using it.

  • It's tough having the account team overseas. They are standing up an American office in summer 2014, but scheduling remains an issue.

We did not renew, mostly due to product roadmap and overall cost of the product compared to competitors.

Love it. Insights help to power a very lean and nimble team, allows turnaround times to be much faster, fits within our budget, and allows us to be faster and smarter with our decision making.

I had some issues interacting with viewing recordings of a specific page by many users but my impression was that this was going to be fixed.

i don't think we use the full functionalities of the tool, but to use the full functions, it's almost impossible (Too hard)

In-Person Training

Adobe Target8.1
Based on 3 answers
The instructor that came to train us was awesome and this training was very useful. I would recommend it for anyone who is going to be using this software. I only mark it lower because it is an added expense to an already expensive product, and a lot of the training covered the "Target" portion of the software (which again, we didn't use)

Online Training

Adobe Target6.1
Based on 3 answers
The training was very easy to understand, however it would have been more useful to my development team than me. It was also primarily over-the-phone, which is never as easy to follow as in-person. We ended up scheduling and paying for an in-person training session to supplement the online/phone training because it wasn't helpful enough.

Alternatives Considered

Webtrends Optimize was on the list. Ultimately, my previous experience with Adobe T&T led us to make the decision to use it.
Bryant Hoopes profile photo
We used CrazyEgg prior to ClickTale. CrazyEgg is simpler to use and much less expensive, but you get what you pay for. ClickTale gives us more capabilities that we desired. If you are a small start up with few people dedicated to the web, go with CrazyEgg. If you are a larger company wanting more capabilities, I would use ClickTale.

Return on Investment

  • Increases in conversion of 50-100% depending on the pages.
Bryant Hoopes profile photo
  • The most positive impact from Clicktale is that helped us streamline the forms we used and fix problems that we couldn't see when we were analyzing just numbers from our analytics dashboards.
