FullStory

FullStory is adaptable to a host of scenarios, from customer service to growth hacking and sales teams to engineering. I often feel we only use half of the functionality it offers. Therein may lie one of its weaknesses. It just does so much that it may be difficult to use it to its fullest potential. Having said that, the UI/UX is thoughtfully developed with an eye to surfacing features you may not have known about.

VWO

VWO makes implementation and integration easy. They have done a great job to ensure the script does not heavily impact load times or page speeds. This was a very important aspect especially if you will be doing tests across multiple sites or products. Overall the UI is easy to learn and the support team is quick to address specific questions.

Pros

FullStory

  • It's always on and monitoring, no need to enable and replicate, the data is always available.
  • Quickly search for a "story" by a number of unique identifiers.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

VWO

  • When designing A/B variations I can choose to either use the visual editor or to make the changes using code. I particularly like using jQuery.
  • VWO offers the ability to keep long term track of the performance of your goals.
  • I can easily identify recordings of users that dropped out of a funnel and watch those.
  • There is live chat to get support, with great response times and which is very helpful.
  • You are forced to create observations and hypotheses when creating a test, which is a great way to make sure that you are actually testing something worthwhile.
  • You can group tests together so that you can rule out interaction effects between tests that you are running at the same time.

Cons

FullStory

  • Typing in a partial URL sometimes give more information and options as opposed to typing in a full URL.
  • It doesn't always pick up every session, making it very difficult to find the information I need.
  • It tends to assign users multiple IDs (which I don't think is their fault), making it hard to find a specific session from one user.
Ephraim Mandel | TrustRadius Reviewer

VWO

  • 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

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.

I've never had to use their support, but their help articles are a little confusing. Sometimes the information is out-of-date or they return search results I didn't want. For example, I was looking for help on setting up FullStory in our Dev environment and got articles about their Dev Tool product.

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.

Alternatives Considered

FullStory

When we were looking for a solution, FullStory was the only one we could find that could do everything we wanted it to. I don't know if that's still the case or not.
Andrew Clark | TrustRadius Reviewer

VWO

We have used conversion.com and Lucky Orange. This is the 3rd CRO tool we have purchased. I think VWO is better than the other two. We also evaluated Optimizely and VWO was the clear winner in terms of price and functionality. The one thing that VWO lacked that Optimizely had was the ability to add custom dimensions to users for more granular business-specific testing segments.

Return on Investment

FullStory

  • At the end of the day, we did not use this product quite as much as we intended.
  • We ended up canceling because we couldn't justify the value.
  • I would recommend having a solid usage plan in place before signing, so you can ensure you get the most out of this.
Yocheved Schlachter | TrustRadius Reviewer

VWO

  • We've been able to roll out new design patterns with confidence that short term revenue is not negatively effected.
  • We've had more wins than losses, as the company is just ramping up a testing strategy. We know percentage of wins will go down as we optimize, but VWO has been vital on making calculated steps along the way.
