Considered Both Products
Dynamic Yield
Chose Dynamic Yield
I have used VWO before Dynamic Yield. VWO was our testing platform and we had a lot of trouble with it. It was not an "end user" oriented platform and wasn't easy to manage. The advantage of Dynamic Yield over VWO is having all the features in one platform (pop-ups, …
Chose Dynamic Yield
Much more optimization possibilities. Deeper and automatic analysis of tests, product recommendations, email widgets and much more. VWO is the chimpanzee and Dynamic Yield the human.
Chose Dynamic Yield
Dynamic yield has everything you need out of the box where VWO pricing is tiered which can be frustrating. Dynamic yield is solid on personalization and more flexible with what can be done and achieved.
Chose Dynamic Yield
DY is easier to understand, has much better support than any of the other products i've used, and much easier to setup / integrate
Chose Dynamic Yield
Dynamic Yield is leaps-and-bounds beyond other platforms when it comes to advanced capabilities. If all you want is to A/B tests two separate landing pages, it is probably overkill. If you want to optimize your customer's digital experience across audience-types, including …
Chose Dynamic Yield
Dynamic Yield performs quite well, but Google solutions are a major competitor.
Chose Dynamic Yield
I have used Visual Website Optimizer previously which was recommended by an agency; they are both similar tools. Though simply on the support factor I feel Dynamic yield is better suited for our business. We have been using the tool now for over two years, and have had a lot of …
VWO
Chose VWO
VWO is a good middle ground for our clients that want to have a full fledged A/B testing platform at a reasonable price. Some of our clients would like to use a platform that is free of charge (Google Optimize), but we are generally able to steer them away from that and use a …

User Testimonials

Likelihood to Recommend
Dynamic Yield by Mastercard
Dynamic Yield is great for just about any sized organization, though to get the best bang for your buck, I recommend having a front-end web developer well-versed in JavaScript. Additionally, a front-end web designer would be advisable as well as their templates have great functions but some have lackluster UI's that can't be tweaked without developer assistance. Were it not for the above + the occassional slowness on the console/admin-side of the platform, I'd give it a 10. If you have a front-end dev/designer, then it's closer to a 9.5. Ideal utilization scenarios could include: Personalization, CRO/UX/UI testing, and audience or user-level tailored digital experience.

Our marketing team does a lot of creative testing around messaging and imagery. VWO is well suited for this type of testing and can yield great results if you define your conversion goals correctly. However, when we have tried to do more substantial/advanced changes through VWO (such as re-positioning content or modifying elements in a form), we have had some challenges and not been able to get the desired tests working correctly.

Pros
Dynamic Yield by Mastercard
  • Provide fantastic support, both in relation to strategy/best practice and troubleshooting.
  • An easy to use interface, as a user who is relatively new to Dynamic Yield I find that it is an intuitive platform to use.
  • The ability to segment and drill down on data allows for really specific insights which, whilst not necessarily being leveraged on a testing basis, can be super valuable from a greater marketing perspective.

  • VWO has a strong support team willing to help provide answers to questions during the setup process. During setup, we had some questions regarding implementation across a significant number of sites and they were able to ease dev team concerns and provide detailed best practices to streamline integration.
  • Some of the initial results of a few of the initial tests raised some questions internally. We setup a call and were able to quickly address the questions and find some opportunities to leverage moving forward.
  • I discovered a bug within the UI that lead to some questions internally. I was able to report it and the problem was fixed rather quickly and their team followed up with a thank you for reporting it and to report the issue was now resolved.

Cons
Dynamic Yield by Mastercard
  • The impact (either positive or negative) of potentially overlapping campaigns, especially the UX personalization or custom code campaigns, may not be easily identifiable.
  • It would make more sense for the new deep-learning and machine learning (ML) driven strategies be made part of the standard offering, as opposed to positioning them as add-on subscription, given that many other completing services are baking in ML as part of their platform evolution.
  • The documentation on the API and custom code implementation can be fleshed out further.

  • The user interface within VWO does take a bit of time to get used to, especially as it pertains to switching back and forth between tests. When running multiple experiments on a site at a time, a clear and succinct dashboard for everything in one place would be helpful (as opposed to needing to switch between A/B, multivariate, etc).

It's great value and we think we've ironed out all the major teething troubles. However, if we experience any more bugs or problems that significantly slow us down then we're seriously considering switching to Optimizely, which I haven't personally tested but have heard great things about from my CRO peers

Usability
Dynamic Yield by Mastercard
Setting up strategies, audiences, and experiences is simple and fast. It is incredibly easy to modify the appearance of your site and optimize every aspect with the Dynamic Yield Personalizations. However, while the data visualization on an experience level is easy to modify and analyze, exporting the data in meaningful ways is time consuming.

I gave Visual Website Optimizer a rating of 8 because it is overall a great product to use. Setting up and keeping track of various tests is easy and straight forward. The only reason why this product is not rated higher is because the support documents online leave a lot of room for improvement.

VWO doesn't appear to slow down our website at all, though some customers with adblockers like UBlock Origin have been known to not see entire pages if VWO is making changes to the page at a macro level (background, font, etc). This is rare though.

Support Rating
Dynamic Yield by Mastercard
Overall, the support is very good. If you are a partner (my case), they assign you a customer success manager, that helps a lot. Also, there is a technical person to provide support to the partners, again a great help.
My only "complain" is that with some complex issues, the support may delay in providing you with a solution. Sometimes that can cause some tension with your client.

While their online document support is lacking a simple email to their support team will almost always get responded to the next day. It has however taken more than one email to explain the problem to the support team till they understood the problem. The solution I was given also only half fixed the problem the rest I figured out on my own.

Training was good, just limited to the onboarding process. They walked through all of the steps it takes to get started in VWO and each of the modules, along with giving us ideas for starting our first test. I feel like it could be better if there was a guided process within the VWO program to continue to educate you along the way, and a way to turn that off for experienced users.

Overall, the implementation of VWO is straightforward. If you've got a straightforward way of deploying code to all of your test pages, either a good CMS or a TMS, then implementation should be a breeze. There is no tweaking to be done to the code itself, and once deployed it has the flexibility to cope with different VWO modules (tracking, conversion analysis, session analysis) without modification.

Alternatives Considered

  • 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.

I used Google Optimize when it had just launched. It was therefore not yet a competitor to VWO. I haven't used it in roughly half a year time, so a lot has probably changed. I still use Hotjar for certain features that VWO offers, but which I think function better in Hotjar. I for instance prefer the Hotjar heatmaps, because I can elect to ignore certain elements on the webpage, such as a cookie consent pop up. A simple difference which makes me like Hotjar recordings more is that I can view a recording and click next, rather than going back to the overview and selecting the next recording.

The product seems infinitely scalable for our needs (small business) and we've never had any issue with loading VWO-edited elements. I will say, though, that online customers with ad blockers have been known to not see certain VWO elements as their third-party scripts are disabled.

Return on Investment
Dynamic Yield by Mastercard
  • Most tests have had a positive impact on either revenue or conversion rate - quite often in double digits.
  • Dynamic Yield has also helped us to stop some particular initiatives through direct interaction with the customer base via questionnaires or by a test proving negative quicker than rolling out a permanent feature.

  • The ability to offer a CRO service is greatly enhanced by VWO, as it allows us to run tests for clients
  • The editor means to some extent we don't need much developer resource to run the tests, lowering costs of doing so
