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. For reference, we're a relatively small business (<50 employees).,10,Online training Self-taught,7,The upside is the product is very intuitive - easy to learn and has enough depth for complex tests.,9,Just paste the VWO script into the &lt;head&gt; tag of your website.

The customer service rep wrote some javascript for me that did exactly what I wanted to do.

The track - plan - analyze - test - and target modules take you all the way through implementing an A/B test, from observing user behavior to implementing a permanent change to your website. Content editing. It's built for anyone to use, but if you know HTML/CSS/Javascript it's friendly to use too!,Sometimes making changes to an existing A/B test, even if they're insignificant, can cause VWO to give error notifications. 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. A customer support rep helped me with this.,9,9,10,9,Google Analytics,Google Analytics data in VWO,Javascript widgets,4,If you want to see VWO tests in Google Analytics, follow this link: https://vwo.com/knowledge/how-to-integrate-with-google-universal-analytics/,9,10,We didn't negotiate, we signed on to one of the prepackaged plans.,Just make sure you have a clear understanding of each of VWO's different plans and what each plan provides.

The menus are very easy to navigate and it walks you though the process of creating tests. It is very easy to see your currently running tests and see how each one of your tests are performing.,During test setup some of the goals don't always work properly. The difference between an A/B test and a Split URL test are not well defined. The online documentation is hit or miss. Sometimes it is very helpful and other times it is extremely difficult to find out what you are trying to do.,We have increased conversion rate on several lead generating sites. It has helped us streamline our sites.,8,8,7,No,The A/B Testing tool is super easy to use. In an A/B Test it is very easy to edit your different test variations even if you don't have web development experience. It is very easy to see running tests and their result. Visual Website Optimizer takes a lot of the guess work out and tells you when you have a winning variation.,The Split URL Testing is not as easy to set up as you would expect. The online support docs can sometimes be confusing and offer little information.,8

Is Visual Website Optimizer Right for You?

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.
