Likelihood to Recommend

Dynamic Yield

it is well suited in fast pace environments. Producing tests is a lot easier if you have a dedicated front end developer who understand CSS and JavaScript.If you need help with these technical parts, I don't believe the online support is fast enough or detailed enough to provide good advise. If you believe your website has at least 3 tests that are worthwhile to conduct you would probably pay for Dynamic Yield within 12 months. Because of the costs, it is much easier and faster to prove the product has paid for itself within a short period.

I've used different testing systems, and Monetate is simple-to-use. I've been able to train interns who'd previously had little experience, too. More complicated tests require web dev. I'd like to be able to "safely" shift and style elements in a WYSIWYG interface, but the interface provides most of what I want.

Pros

Dynamic Yield

  • It segments our performance so we can accurately measure improvements. Unlike other tools, Dynamic Yield is faster.
  • It allows you to segment for an audience and tells you how big the test audience is likely to be. This is not an easy thing to do with other platforms. You often have to run a test before you realise how big the user pool is likely to be.
  • It is more than 50% cheaper than our previous provider.
  • The Account Manager is proactive, keen, and has regular meetings with us. Other providers that I have used in the past are productive for an initial 2-3 month period then tend to go missing until renewal, and this is not the case with Dynamic Yield.

Monetate

  • You can test virtually ANYTHING on your website. Once you know what you're doing, it is really easy to upload assets and really customize the details of your test.
  • If you have multiple websites, you can keep all of your website tests separate - for example, we manage two separate brands, both which have 3 environments we can set up tests in: development, staging, and production environments. So, we can easily manage 6 separate test groups and store the various content in the proper section, very easily.
  • The design is really clean and easy to navigate. It is easy to organize and filter your experiments, you can tag them to make filtering a lot easier (especially when you have a bunch of experiments running at the same time), and the simple function of duplicating an experiment makes minor changes to a grand experiment SO much quicker.
  • The Monetate Inspector tool (I could be using the wrong word, sorry!) also allows you to far more easily identify the unique ID of an experiment so you can find it in Monetate and make any desired changes rather than sifting one by one through your various experiments trying to figure out which one you mean to edit.

Cons

Dynamic Yield

  • It would be great if you could provide 24 hour support, seven days a week UK time.
  • Devise level testing is a problem. We have built tests on mobile and tablet devices and they have not always worked as designed. On one occasion, a mobile test broke all transactional reporting (for mobile devices) in Google Analytics.
  • We feel we are missing out on hearing about tests that other Dynamic Yield customers have done. We haven't seen a lot of positive case studies of tests other customers have conducted.

Monetate

  • Monetate can be difficult to learn at first. I think having a clear way to access how-to guides or videos would help employees learn the tool faster.
  • A small criticism but Monetate doesn't allow you to delete any experiences. It can make the platform a bit messy because there are times where we practice creating experiences and now they can't be deleted.

implementation took a long time but also, DY has really proven that they are transforming and adapting their platform to be more user friendly and the right technology choice for their brand or company

Overall I found Monetate to be a very powerful tool. It was able to help us answer questions like "What offer will be the strongest this holiday?", "Is it worth it to 'call-out' new products with a highlighted message?" and "Will we improve KPI metrics on our homepage if we try different types of marketing placements?". I would highly recommend this tool to anyone who is looking to try and test and improve the experiences of their customers shopping on their website.

Part of what I love about Monetate is how intuitive the tool is. Very very easy to use - based on the basics - Who/What/When/Where concept. Anyone can jump right in and start using the tool. And very easy to copy campaigns and tweak to continue to build experiences. We recently added Monetate on mobile and similar experience - easy to jump back and forth between platforms. Also love the analytics dashboard...easily quantifiable and easy to get tidbits that are digestible for others not as familiar with tool.

Monetate

We did look at some competitors and found that Monetate allowed use to build more of the actions ourselves. The builders that Monetate offer are very easy to follow and understand and you don't need to be an expert coder nor do you have to rely on the vendor to build all actions for you

  • We are able to optimize our site. Through our testing efforts, we were able to lift both conversion rate and average order value simply by moving the layout of our pages around.
