https://media.trustradius.com/product-logos/0I/2D/LB25RQ82W2PF.PNGVWO: The tool you never knew you needed.We use VWO primarily for its A/B testing functionality, secondarily for its ability to edit website content on the fly and implement flexible customer experience surveys. We use VWO in our EBSCO Mags business line, a B2B magazine agent. It allows us to implement A/B tests based on user behavior and other criteria and it allows the marketing department to make changes to the website before the Web Development team is able to implement permanent changes.,A/B testing. VWO users are able to use all sorts of criteria to trigger and serve an A/B test, and the editor functionality is extremely flexible in editing page content. Surveys. We're looking to expand our surveys with the new logic functionality that VWO is beta testing. Web content editing that circumvents the web development "wait time". If marketing needs something simple changed on a webpage, all we have to do is go in VWO and edit or hide it.,Continued learning. I think that quarterly product update calls would help us understand what's new in the VWO universe.,10,Optimized our checkout process to increase conversion rates by as much as 3%. Prospected high-value customers with triggered surveys based on customer on-site time.,We have, we've implemented seven A/B tests and learned about our users' behavior. Our most significant test was removing buttons that showed up above the "Check Out" button in the shopping cart, increasing our conversion rate and giving us the knowledge that we should move that button elsewhere. We've also tested things like implementing sticky product-page CTA buttons and creating a different homepage experience for logged in users.,This bit has been tricky - I think the functionality is there, we've just been limited on our end about how to best take advantage of it. I think in the future we're looking to pass our custom customer segments as javascript variables so that VWO is able to read those variables and serve the user the appropriate version of the page we want them to see (as of right now our variables are PHP).,The editor is easy to use! Seriously, anyone that has used MS Paint can use VWO's editor. But it does allow for HTML/CSS savvy users to go in and make custom changes too, which is nice.,Google Optimize,Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager,1,1,Changing web content on the fly A/B testing and optimization Web personalization,Implementing website banners for promotions Customizing content based on user data,More A/B tests Prospecting high-value clients Finding new ways to personalize content,10,No,Price Product Features Product Reputation,I wouldn't - we evaluated three similar services and I think we made the right decision.,Implemented in-house,We didn't have any issues - we implemented the script and were able to use VWO.

I'd like to be able to ignore these if possible. Occasionally, I'll need to add a bit of Javascript to a page to make sure all of the elements load correctly.

With a good pricing model and when paired with a tag manager, it allows us to run hundreds of tests over 45 different websites with relative ease. With a significant required for competitive tools, this proved a compelling way to get management excited about the potential of CRO while also fitting within our budget constraints.,VWO makes it easy to get up and running with AB/MVT testing - without loads of code knowledge or a large budget. VWO makes it easy to visualise complex statistics using graphs and visualisations. VWO has an evolving toolset that is becoming more and more mature every week. VWO has a good set of segmentation tools to identify how tests perform with different customers.,VWO reliability can leave me scratching my head. Code verification sometimes fails during a running test and previews will sometimes inform me that "test is not running on this page", even when it's set to run sitewide. Code generated by the visual editor can be slightly buggy. CTA buttons were duplicated or missing, but this wasn't visible in the preview - only on site when the test was live. This is okay if you have good QA testing and the javascript skills to tweak the generated jQuery code. Conversion tracking can sometimes be flaky. Tracking using css selectors isn't as robust as I would expect, especially when tracking clicks on modified objects (like buttons). This can be frustrating when it requires me to reset tests after a couple of days due to lost tracking. It would be nice to have a build-in verification tool so I can quickly see if these won't work correctly. It would be nice to see full access to the segmentation options on all plans if pricing model is primarily charged by number of visitors.,6,Positive impact on ROI from PPC campaigns through refined landing pages. Improved contribution to websites from across the business by being able to quickly test ideas from everyone, at any level. Helped move the company towards a 'test everything' culture, where data-driven digital products are the norm and every bit of money spent on product development can be justified.

Implementation

8
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.
