Contentsquare (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.

Smartlook

Smartlook is great for situations where you need to segment, catalog, and review the finer details of user and application behavior. I wouldn't use Smartlook as a replacement for standard analytics, yet, though, as those other systems (google analytics) are well suited for non-visual statistics.

Pros

Contentsquare (Clicktale)

  • In my experience ClickTale's unique value proposition is its heatmapping platform--and it delivers on that UVP very well. It has a suite of available maps each delivering unique and easily digestible insights.
  • ClickTale provides very enlightening data that I haven't found anywhere else such as hover time, hover order, and hesitation.
  • ClickTale also provides useful customizable segments, which allow for more granular data analysis.
  • ClickTale is extremely easy to install.

Smartlook

  • It shows the referring URL that clients used to get to our website.
  • It's useful to see where users are navigating to on our website and use that information to make adjustments or improvements.
  • It's helpful to be able to see if users are coming back multiple times to our website.

Cons

Contentsquare (Clicktale)

  • I always felt not providing me with the ability to grant others in my company with rights restricted access was a huge downside. This forced me into being the sole point of contact for anything that had to do with Clicktale.
  • Hugely lacking in the ability for me to build reports using the quantitative data. It was very labor intensive for me to gather and analyze data from Clicktale.
  • I missed out in a lot of functionality not having an enterprise level subscription. I had the gold subscription. Many of the things I wanted to capture were not possible without involving their developers - and that was only possible at the enterprise subscription level.

  • Privacy issues with other countries are unclear (especially in Europe).
  • Even though recordings are only kept for 30 days it would be useful if the old recording info is still available such as date and time.
  • The assistant pop-ups are useful sometimes and annoying sometimes. It would like to be able to enable/disable them.

I am still on the fence regarding renewing our account. Currently we are trying to determine what tools and programs offer the highest ROI and generates the most efficiency for our employees. ClickTale may become lost in the shuffle along with other programs and accounts we are currently using. While effective, ClickTale has limited scope in general marketing uses.

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 absolutely love SmartLook not only for the number of features that it packs into it but how good those features are. We generally use it for spotting technical issues or seeing the heat maps but it also allowed us to see the main points at which people abandon carts. And although we can see that through GA, Smartlook allows us to see what they are looking at when they do it, which helps us to narrow down why they left. All of the other features are phenomenal and the support is great

We have not used Smartlook's Support yet, but we have used Smartlook's excellent documentation and walkthroughs for set-up and when we have questions. Smartlook walks you through the setup process with easy-to-understand tooltips, walkthroughs, and answers to frequently asked questions. Smartlook's documentation made setup and maintenance of our sites incredibly easy!

Alternatives Considered

Contentsquare (Clicktale)

ClickTale is now a step ahead of the competition since it delivers insights based on pre-defined business KPIs and customer journeys that we have set up. We can also segment our traffic and easily sift through the many recordings finding the ones that match our lookup criteria. This paired with a good and reliable PII masking helps us with insight collection and drive business decisions which other solutions don't have.The new non-Flash interface is clean and simple to use and has all the functionalities centralized.

Smartlook

We decided to integrate Smartlook because the onboarding was smoother: we especially appreciated the possibility to evaluate it using a free trial and the customer care that was really interested in helping us instead of selling us a solution. We can not also mention that having a monthly plan with a lower monthly fee helped us making this decision.

Return on Investment

Contentsquare (Clicktale)

  • Rarely was actionable insight taken from the ClickTale tool that resulted in a better user experience on our website. We made small changes on different aspects of our webpages that typically did not show an improvement over the previous versions.
  • The dedicated time and resources in the ClickTale tool did not justify the investment. The heat maps can be helpful but they are based on mouse clicks (Google Analytics can help with that). Watching recordings can get time consuming and don't always provide enough data for an actionable takeaway.
  • If you take the approach of identifying a potential problem on your website first, then using the ClickTale tool to dig deeper in the issue, you might find the tool helpful. However, make sure you gather enough data on the potential issue before making changes to your site (and monitor the changes afterward).

Smartlook

  • We found out that people look for functions on our websites that we have not put there. e.g. they wanted to enlarge a photo and that was not possible.
  • We found out that pepole are a bit disoriented in our e-shop cart, that was why our sales were low. After adjusting the cart our sales went up by 3%.
  • We found out what categories our clients were looking for in our e-shop. We realized some categories were missing.
