Amplitude Analytics

If you looking to go deep into the user journey, then this is the best suit as you can create a segment and this is the easiest tool for applying the required filters and segments on various steps of the funnel to see the user flow. In one complete flow, it can easily provide you with all events that were conducted by a user during his session.

Mixpanel

Mixpanel is perfect for analytics reports where event and user data for a platform are important. For bootstrapping or economical companies looking for a reliable but free platform, Mixpanel should be the best option as they cover a lot of analytical ground. This is also perfect for SaaS companies, both small and big.

Pros

Amplitude Analytics

  • Charts - I love the charting elements from Amplitude because they are simple and intuitive.
  • Ease of use - It has the ability to run complex SQL queries but more importantly the average marketer can use it and get the information they need without needing to have any technical work done.
  • Cohorts - These make segmenting data easy and this is key in the analysis.

  • Mixpanel's ease of use is easily their best feature, allowing you to quickly create graphs with a few point and clicks. Their UI is also fairly snappy and well-designed.
  • Tying together events with user attributes allows you to properly segment users into cohorts which can then be tracked individually. Proper segmentation is where most analytics solutions earn their keep.
  • Live view is a nice perk that gives you a good feel for who's on your site and what they're doing at any single point in time. This can be further filtered to focus on particular events of interest.
  • Mixpanel has flexible plans that work for smaller startups as well.
  • Their documentation is top notch.

Cons

Amplitude Analytics

  • Training my team on Amplitude is a little complicated, so I would say it isn't the most intuitive software. Certain actions require hovering over buttons in order for the options to appear which can cause confusion when initially learning how to navigate Amplitude.

  • I didn't use the engagement features at all but it seems like they could have a better WYSIWYG editor for the emails for non-technical people using Mixpanel.
  • The custom reports feature seems to be really powerful but I wish they had more resources/templates for creating custom reports. I don't code so it was really hard for me to use this feature...BUT the reports I was able to get help with, were really powerful.
  • I wanted a dashboard area for all of my reports in one view. It seems like they were implementing this when I was moving jobs. If it's not available yet, they definitely need to add a master dashboard page for arranging saved reports.

It's not an all encompassing solution like Google Analytics tries to be, but MixPanel offers much easier to use and understandable data insights. That's valuable when juggling many responsibilities as startup life demands, so a renewal would be easily justified.

It provides a super useful analytics platform. You don't even have to have coding skills to use it and almost no training is required. Features and analysis are very intuitive. Speed could be faster. I didn't experience any downtime while using it. It smoothly integrates into the normal workflow of a developer and provides a hassle-free platform to managers.

I think it’s a decent solution, but there has to be something better out there. I don’t trust that everything it’s tracking is accurate, which is problematic when your company is essentially using it as a customer relationship management tool. Mixpanel also used to provide live chat support and then they recently took it away, making it harder to get the support we need.

Mixpanel has a great resource about their product, with videos on how to use it and real world examples from other companies on how they integrate Mixpanel into their business processes.

Again, somewhat annoying to be charged based on data points when many other analytics providers have one flat fee. Implementation was good, but I might have tracked a few more detailed points if I had the option.

Alternatives Considered

Amplitude Analytics

A lot of data can be tracked via manual tracking or linking to an excel sheet, but with such a huge amount of data, it is far easier to have all of it laid out in an easy to read format. The charts and graphs are easy to use and are really pretty user-friendly. The hardest part is in simply finding the event that you want to use.

Mixpanel

Haven't used any direct competitors at the moment as they didn't exist when we first started using MP. That said, it looks like there are a lot of new up-and-coming tools which will be able to do certain things better than mixpanel - if not all of them. Examples include Hotjar, FullStory, and potentially some home-built tools which will funnel data into a centralized data warehouse we can query with SQL. Not being able to use SQL in Mixpanel is a HUGE detriment and could serve as a key reason for dropping the product as soon as a viable alternative appears.

Return on Investment

Amplitude Analytics

  • With Amplitude, we can make informed decisions based on the way that users are interacting with the product.
  • It helps us deduce issues users have with the product by understanding the events and touch points users have. For example, we can troubleshoot when certain things are broken using Amplitude.

Mixpanel

  • Better customer service - we can better understand our individual customers by quickly viewing their Mixpanel profile. It also saves us a lot of time because we don't need to ask them as many questions (such as what browser they use) in order to resolve their issue.
  • Conversion rates - we have significantly increased our conversion rates from users first landing on the website to filling out their contact details to join the website. As a result, we are able to spend more money on our digital advertising and thus we can acquire more users per day.
