Crazy Egg
+ I strongly believe that this tool helps when a firm has good user count (depends on business model) as most of these tools are data friends. More data - more valuable insights + Best fit if someone who is looking for deeper insights of individual page - Not suggested for very fewer visits of a website. Suggested to improve better visit count

I have yet to find a similar system that is as easy to use and comes with the type of support that Thrive Leads does. Sometimes support is a bit slow, but they always get back to you and nine times out of ten they can fix any problems on the first go. The flexibility of the form plugin itself is also excellent.

Pros
Crazy Egg
  • Provides heatmaps that shows you the elements on your site that are and aren't performing well.
  • Provides scrollmaps so you can see how far down a page users are scrolling and which content never gets seen.
  • Screenshots show you how your website looks across a variety of different devices.
  • Provides a type of clickmap called confetti that enables you visualise clicks by segments - device, new/returning visitors, campaigns and other metrics.

Cons
Crazy Egg
  • The largest thing we've struggled with is the Optimizely integration. I've contacted customer service a few times to get it properly setup. Customer Service is always friendly and helpful; they provide clear steps to get it setup. Unfortunately despite clear instructions, they are tedious, and if not completed in the correct order, the integration with Optimizely does not work. My success rate with the integration is less than 55%.

It's a great tool considering how inexpensive it is. If used correctly and you have a plan for tracking your websites, this tool can make a world of a difference. If you are not going to sit down and take the time to make a plan for how to use this tool, I would say it is not worth your time. Yes, you can look at items on your website that need to be changed, but without a consistent plan, other important items that need changing can be lost in the mix. Make sure you have enough time and energy to invest in this and it will be well worth it

Usability
Crazy Egg
It's not clear what features there are. The navigation icon is not labeled. It's hard to know where to start when you're first logging in as a first-time user. It's hard to know how to set up anything and there aren't many helpful tutorials in-product. I don't want to be kicked out of a help center or read the documentation.

Thrive Leads can be easily used by anyone who has the basic skills to work within the WordPress environment and who has the knowledge about lead capture and segmentation. As a lead capture tool, I think it's use is restricted to obtaining contact information in different settings, which it does flawlessly.

Reliability and Availability
Crazy Egg
It's slow to post data, and slow to get a snapshot to finally be active (i.e. not pending). Not intolerable, but would be nice to see data within a couple hours. Often have to wait to the next day.

Support Rating
Crazy Egg
I think support is an area where Crazy Egg is lacking. I would love to have a quarterly check-in with a Crazy Egg rep to understand what kinds of changes have been made to the platform and what is on the horizon. I also think a quick consulting sessions with a rep could be extremely beneficial, as I'm sure there are ways to use the tool that we haven't even thought about yet that would be extremely insightful for our team.

In general, the support is great. When living in a different time zone, the support can seem slow but it's not. Most of the time, any issues I have get sorted out quickly and if it's not the first time, it generally gets fixed on the second go. Their knowledge base is good too although sometimes it's hard to search. Not usually their fault, more that users don't title their problems better.

It is simple. JavaScript code needs to be added to any pages where you want to run tests. That's it.

Hotjar is more expensive than Crazy Eggs, and we needed a tool to fit the budget for small comp. With more time, we could have tested it deeply also to have a better opinion, it seems to be great too

I've used Optin Monster and Poptin on other projects. Both are good software for different use cases. Poptin is great if you are scrappy, just getting started, and you need a proof of concept and want to keep costs low until you've tested the market. Poptin isn't anywhere near as easy to use as Thrive Leads, but that $0 price tag is meaningful while you are just getting started. OptinMonster isn't as easy or intuitive to use as a builder, but the advantage is that more VAs have used Optin Monster as have used Thrive Leads, so you often don't have to do as much training. I would consider OptinMonster in cases where a website isn't build using Thrive Themes and where an incumbent VA is already well versed in the software.

Scalability
Crazy Egg
Its reliability (not scaleability, as the question asks for, sorry) is pretty good but through our testing we know that some clicks do not get recorded. It doesn't bother us a lot because we look at the aggregate of thousands of visits, but we do know it misses things. As for scaleability, it's about right. You really don't want zillions of clicks per snapshot - the screen just turns to 100% dots and you lose the ability to differentiate different screen areas. We find that 25,000 clicks for a page gives us a really good view.
