Dynamic Yield

Dynamic Yield is well suited to businesses that are actively engaged in and concerned with how their customers are responding to their site/products be it as a first time or repeat customer. If your business wants to target specific segments with specific messages at specific times then Dynamic Yield is a perfect fit.

Monetate

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

  • A/B Testing of Creative - this feature allows us to trial multiple creatives and messages without having to force a choice between any one. This gives us much greater freedom in messaging and improves our development workflow by not artificially restricting our choices.
  • Audience Segmentation - We can segment our audience based on behavior (social sharing, content consumption rates, etc.) and target them with messaging specific to their interests. We can then provide reports on how different audience segments are interacting with our content, and especially how our differentiated messaging is helping to improve those interaction rates.
  • Display Ads - We have used this feature to create display ads that run through our ad system, but they allow us greater flexibility to A/B test creative. We have also used this to provide retargeting or purchased ads to third parties, and this give us much more control over the deployment and testing of creatives without needing to send the third-party new ad codes.

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

  • We have experienced some minor bugs with the platform and the plugin, but tech support seems responsive to those issues.
  • A way of connecting to clients' own APIs for testing product recommendations or allowing for more types of product feeds would be helpful.
  • As a client, would like to see more information provided for upcoming features and roadmap or have input into what those are.

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.

I had never worked within a company that had a tool like this. It made my life as a designer and a creative manager much easier with it's easy to use interface and limitless possibilities in terms of creative. I would highly recommend taking Monetate for a test drive, you will not be disappointed.

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.

Dynamic Yield support, when it comes to the Key Account Manager but also the overall Tech Support, always responds promptly and tries to support in new adjustments. Problems are being solved quickly and rather complicated topics are being approached with a high support level.

Alternatives Considered

Dynamic Yield

  • Oracle Maxymiser is very clunky and hard to code with. Previewing changes was a challenge and development for fixes were slow
  • Optimizely - Great for coding. Fast and efficient. Everything worked great. They were limited at personalization triggers though and their costs were expensive.
  • Monetate - Evaluated but their UI was hard to use.

N/A This is my first time using a tool like this so I cannot compare however I don't see any need to try anything else. The team is helpful, the tool works and they resolve any concerns or issues when they do come up

Return on Investment

Dynamic Yield

  • It's too early to tell as we have only been using it for 4 months, but signs are positive for ROI
  • We believe that 3 tests will pay for Dynamic Yield in a 12 month period.
  • ROI can afford to be 50% less than with our previous provider because Dynamic Yield is so much cheaper.
Bharat Patel | TrustRadius Reviewer

Monetate

  • In many cases we have seen high lift in test scenarios very quickly, which helped us to move these better improvements to product faster.
  • Monetate has also helped us to asses changes that won't work. There is less risk with Monetate when you can test a hypothesis out first.
