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.

Very well suited when you want to test across multiple pages and / or run heavily targeted or segmented campaigns. Lots of out of the box capabilities, and they can help add the ability to do anything else. You can create reusable custom scripts for targeting or tracking. Ease of implementation is great, and as I mentioned, the campaign reporting is top notch. If you still want additional insight, you can tie it in to 3rd parties like ClickTale or Google Analytics.

Pros

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.

  • Different testing methodologies are available including full factorial. Essential for ensuring that robust results for high traffic sites
  • Maxymiser is incredibly easy to implement on the site as it uses a small (single line of code,) tag on each page
  • Can run campaigns on various different devices, including mobile and tablet
  • Offers much more than just conversion campaigns, including behavioural targeting, advanced segmentation and a recommendation engine

Cons

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.

  • Harsh Pricing. The cost of running Oracle Maxymiser greatly reduces the number of organizations that can afford it.
  • Running Simultaneous Campaigns on the same website can be buggy at times.
  • WYSIWYG Editor has Limited Features. Most common elements can be easily created without any coding knowledge, but if you want custom widgets with special styling and logic, you will need a developer.

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.

Maxymiser is used in conjunction with online analytics tools to help us improve conversion rate on our website. It is used in all markets across the group, with very complex tests in more advanced markets and simpler tests in less advanced markets. In some markets multiple departments use it and in others it is used by the online department only. It helps us understand the risks of the changes on the website, improve user experience and deliver better ROI of the online activities.

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.

Personally, I find it quite easy to use. But for those members of our team who have little or no testing experience, it's been a bit more difficult. There's also training required for development teams in order to have your campaigns coded and set up in the most efficient way. Our developers have been able to do basic and intermediate tests with no difficulty, and they find the interface itself quite intuitive... it's just the extremely complex tests that require a bit more understanding.

They're very responsive, helpful, and respectful. From my perspective, they're a partner in our success - I always get the feeling that they care about what we're doing and helping us to succeed. Emails are usually answered quickly and I've never had to escalate an issue. The team is always willing to help us with anything we might need... I've had them on the phone with my entire dev team in more than one instance, helping to resolve tricky coding for complicated tests. Our dev team is in Manila, and they've also been very helpful in working with us on remote training which has been extremely helpful and also effective. When they're providing managed services, the communication is always excellent, and I've always appreciated the strategic support that they provide... they don't just execute on what I hand them, they make an effort to help us make it even better

I give it a 10 because the only issue we had was a result of not following the guidance we were given. Maxymiser provided a customized implementation guide for each site where we were adding the code. On our site implementations when we followed that guide to the letter, it was extremely fast and easy and has worked very well.

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

I have only used Maxymiser, but Target and Optimizely seem like strong contenders. Target has some great features which work well if you are on the AEM platform and use their Analytics as well. Optimizely seems to have server side testing down and that would be my go to if that was the main goal

Return on Investment

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.

  • The ROI has been around £9 for every £1 we've invested a straight conversion increase. This does include items where without testing we would have done that would of lost revenue.
  • This has increased job satisfaction within my team. They enjoy the testing and working with maxymiser. Plus it's always satisfying to get a positive result
