With one line of JavaScript, you are able to install Optimizely on your website and start testing. Design and dev work is no longer a bottleneck to start testing. Simply open up the Optimizely dashboard and use their WYSIWYG editor (What you see is what you get) to start changing content. If you are lucky enough to have design and dev resources, then you can simply create a redirect test that points to your new design.,The product excels at creating tests quickly and getting up and running. Results are also easy to read and no dev experience is necessary to get started.,We have been able to lift our conversion rates by 30% across various content assets since running Optimizely. This has, of course, had an effect on increasing signups and increasing revenue.,10,10,6,2,Optimizely is used to A/B test our entire website and marketing landing pages.

Optimizely customer support is among the best I've encountered from a web software service,Improvements can be made with experiment results reporting specifically customization of data within the data export or whatever is viewed on the summary page Different organizations could have different thresholds for statistical significance. Optimizely is set to 95%. It would be nice to have this value configurable. It is difficult to ascertain whether a losing variation is a statistically significant loss (only shows low chance to beat baseline). Having this would assist with pausing variations that are not performing very well. Customizable, distributable reports would be a great feature to add. Currently you must click through each individual experiment to see experiment details. Seeing a summary through email or selecting multiple experiments to view on one page would be a huge improvement for scanning health of tests.,7,Optimizely has helped us optimize on micro conversion goals throughout our site Our macro conversion goals have also been optimized using Optimizely,Homegrown A/B platform and Adobe Test & Target,Geckoboard, Asana, Trello, JIRA Software,5,1,Test new ideas/variations against current control version Force visitors to see certain site changes Reports to understand impact of site change,Segment traffic from the various inbound channels,Analytics Performance indicators,8,No,Price Product Features Product Usability,Talk with power users for each product more, and understand what feature they wish they could have but currently don't.,No,7,No,When critical tests were impacting our paid campaigns due to issues with the way Optimizely handled our page, then my request was escalated and team worked to address right away.,Button color and copy Segmenting to different audiences,Working with updating images in a slider carousel Reporting,No,6,6,9,6
