Likelihood to Recommend

Google Optimize

Great for users just getting started with A/B testing or on a budget. A wide array of native functionality, and then there is always the option of moving up to the paid version for more options. I recommend it for small to medium-sized businesses if they don't already have any test solutions installed. Since many already use Google Analytics, it's very easy to see the value in connecting one more natively integrated tool.

SiteSpect

SiteSpect is great for businesses with available development resources and a need to provide flicker-free performance. Additionally, the month-to-month service model is attractive considering the contract and implementation prices of most of the tool's competitors. If an organization wants to run a lot of tests with a small team of marketers, I wouldn't recommend a tool as complex as SiteSpect. Effective use of the tool requires a lot of technical skill.

Pros

Google Optimize

  • Easy test implementation. You're up and running once you've pinned down your hypothesis.
  • Goals and conversion points can be easily mapped to any test.
  • Customization of goals in case you don't have one setup.
  • Integrated with Google Analytics so you can correlate with other metrics under behavior and e-commerce data.

SiteSpect

  • It is able to intercept the code from your server, inject your code and then it continues on to the end-user's computer with virtually no speed interruptions.
  • It has several different options for performing A/B tests from regular factors to client-side factors, and origin experiments.
  • It is extremely flexible and configurable for the needs of your company or organization.

Cons

Google Optimize

  • The free version limits you to only 3 tests running at a time.
  • Sometimes page flicker can occur and implementing the page hiding snippet via GTM is rather difficult.

  • SiteSpect recently came out with a feature to test and optimize mobile applications. I have not used this, but it fills an important capability gap with the product I was using at the time.

Alternatives Considered

Google Optimize

To be very honest, we haven't used any software different from Optimize at this point. It would be irresponsible to write about alternatives that we don't know much about.

SiteSpect

I have used all the tools in the market. Sitespect kicks them into the curb based on how easy it is to build variations, and hot it doesnt interfere with client load.
