B2B website optimization is where Mutiny shines. However, you would need a certain level of traffic to justify the investment. Mutiny currently does not support outside the web like in-app and it's also not made for B2C. There are other experimentation tools out there that are a better fit for those areas.

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.
Read full review Pros B2B Personalization. Many out-of-the-box audience segmentation options as well as integration options with tools like 6sense, Clearbit, Salesforce, Marketo, HubSpot, and Segment. No need for engineering resources. Their simple, yet powerful visual experience editor as well as out-of-the-box functionalities like banners, side pops, survey modals and exit-intent modals let you create experiences without engineering. Segment analyzer. They automatically suggest to you which segments have a high potential for improvement and recommend you a playbook from another Mutiny client to execute on successful use cases. Read full review 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. Read full review Cons The reporting functionalities are limited and it's hard to do a deep dive. Occasional bugs but nothing too major. Their support team is great to help resolve issues quickly. Read full review 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 have not experienced an application error or unplanned outage with VWO.

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.

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.
Read full review Implementation Rating
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.

Mutiny makes it much simpler to execute personalization activities and A/B tests compared to big names out there like Optimizely and
. The Mutiny team specifically tackled that hurdle that many marketers face when using these kinds of tools. They honed in on executing the "without the need for engineering" pieces. Note that Optimizely and Target both have WYSIWIG functionalities as well, it's just that Mutiny makes it easier to make changes, even with some AI-suggested copy recommendations. That being said, Optimizely and
have more advanced features for A/B testing and AI/ML decision-making.

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
for certain features that VWO offers, but which I think function better in
. I for instance prefer the
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
recordings more is that I can view a recording and click next, rather than going back to the overview and selecting the next recording.
Read full review Scalability
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.
