Convert provides great support for those starting out with CRO, all the way to companies running multiple teams spread across the world.

You can expect fast 24/7 responses to the questions you and your team might have and their integration with Google Analytics allows you to do your analysis the way you want and combine it with all the other data you already have in GA. The value you get for the price is unlike any other in this industry.

International Speaker & Global CRO Leader

I appreciated the transparency in pricing and the free trial. Having looked into a few similar solutions, it took weeks of back and forth with demos, multiple phone calls, etc. before the other companies would finally quote me a price. In the end, the other solutions were 2-3X the cost and required 12-month commitment. Convert publishes their pricing, let's you run through the entire interface with the free trial and offers month-to-month subscriptions.

Frequently Asked Questions About Optimizely:

Question Icon

Does Google Optimize Offer Server-Side Options?

Yes. Google Optimize offers a server-side experimentation option.

Question Icon

What Does Google Optimize 360 Cost?

Google Optimize 360 is described as a “premium A/B testing solution”. 
Pricing information across sources is quite contradictory. But it may be anywhere between a 100k USD per year and 150k USD per year.

Question Icon

How to Find a Google Optimize Alternative?

  1. Understand why you need to look for a Google Optimize alternative. Don’t switch just because a blog or an influencer told you to. Try to understand the issues you’re facing. 
  2. There will be a few obvious ones – lack of support, the cap on concurrent tests, and flickering. But are there any factors outside of these three influencing your decision? 
  3. Take a step back and evaluate what’s important to you in terms of the A/B testing solution you’ll be investing in! 
  1. Identify the top 4 tools in the A/B testing space that hit the brief and are contenders for your Google Optimize alternative
  2. Test drive the tools with a free trial
  3. Most A/B testing tools gate their prices. You may not be able to get an idea of how much you’ll have to spend until you’re in several rounds of back and forth with sales reps. Hate that? We hate it too. That’s why we’ve created this Comparison PDF as your edge in the consideration process. 
  4. Get stakeholder buy-in. You may be in the driver’s seat. But if the rest of the team does not believe in the alternative, they’ll not use it. 
  5. Get to know the people behind the sales team, the support team, and even the C-suite of your chosen vendor(s). You want to be a face and an identity, not an MRR blip. 

Want more? We’ve written a blog walking you through the process of purchasing an A/B testing tool alternative.

Question Icon

Is Google Optimize Good?

Google Optimize is by Google. 

It does a good job of introducing A/B testing to marketers and brands. Plus, the integration with Google Analytics understandably is far superior than other solutions out there. 

Google Optimize scores an 8.7 out of 10 when it comes to the factor of Ease of Use. According to G2Crowd, this number is 8.5 as an average across A/B testing tools. 

It scores 4.6 out of 10 for Support, in comparison to the industry average of 9. 
And lastly, it scores 8.2 for Ease of Set-Up, while other A/B testing solutions score an 8.5.

Question Icon

Is Google Optimize Free?

Yes.

There is a completely free-to-use version of Google Optimize for brands and testers just getting started. However, keep in mind that Google Optimize also has a premium version of its product, Optimize 360.

The free version of Google Optimize is not meant to be your forever testing platform. It has several in-built restrictions that keep optimizers from scaling with the tool.

Most CRO agencies use Optimize to prove the worth of A/B testing, before onboarding clients to other, more robust optimization solutions that serve their diverse testing needs.
