Attach Revenue To Tests

Convert isn’t a revenue tracking tool. But if you want to prove the ROI of testing, you’ll probably need revenue numbers. This is especially true for E-commerce. With us, you get a number of robust revenue tracking options. Use Google Analytics. Go the manual route. Shopify Plus users enjoy the ease of our custom app that has near one-click integration and error-free revenue tracking.

Eliminate Deployment Bugs Eliminate Deployment Bugs

Bugs escape the most seasoned testers. It happens. But with our Chrome Debugger for real time event logging, and the in-app Live Log for a detailed account of events and goals triggered on your site, QA will be embedded in your testing process.

(..)Where the client has never done any testing before, we typically look first to use Convert (convert.com). I like Convert for a number of reasons. From the very beginning, it has been one of the easiest tools to integrate with Google Analytics. Also, for tricky variations, I’ve had better luck with Convert than others (Optimizely) at getting the variation to display just the way we want. And the support at Convert has always been excellent—again, better than most of their competitors.

When we first started to look into Convert.com we were having issues with the "flicker" effect in some of our tests. We were used to running tests with Google Optimise and we had worked on VWO. We've now been using Convert.com and we think it's one of the best tools around. It's flexible from a development point and the goals are easy to set up and unlimited, the reporting is great for clients, and the support is always friendly and helpful.

The ability to run multiple client accounts within one hub, under one fee and the ease of developing and deploying within the tool. Also, the JS delivers loads that don't impact the experience - which is key. The tool is keenly priced in the industry as well. Where there used to numerous tools available at this price range, most have moved to premium pricing. Convert stands out as the value option, but without cutting key features.

We've recommended Convert Experiences exclusively since 2018, as it's a powerful tool that sits right at the intersection of utility, affordability, and ease of use for our SMB clients. Convert's visual editor allows non-technical teams to test through marketing ideas quickly, while the advanced code editor supports the development of complex experiments and multi-page experiences. Support is top-notch and very responsive.

As a small start-up, we are always looking to increase our CRO. It's always a question of what works and what doesn't at this very moment. During our first two years, we did manual tests which were often hard to track and most of the time didn't get documented due to our marketing team being a 1 person "department". Convert has changed all of that for us - we are A/B testing and seeing actual results! The ROI is huge. Convert is, in our opinion, the best A/B testing platform out there.

Frequently Asked Questions About VWO

Does VWO offer discounts?

Visual Website Optimizer offers a discount that’s between 10% and 15% for two-year contracts and up to 20% for three year commitments.

So what’s with the VWO options Web Testing and CRO? I’m confused.

VWO offers a number of stand-alone modules, each focused on one aspect of experimentation.

These modules are:

  • VWO Testing (aimed at those who want to run A/B and split tests)
  • VWO Insights (aimed at those who wish to analyze user behavior with tools like session recordings and heat maps)
  • VWO Full Stack (aimed at those who wish to invest in server side testing and mobile app testing)
  • VWO Engage (aimed at those who want to use push notifications to reduce churn and improve user engagement)

Prospects have the ability to opt for one or all of these modules, choosing the variants Growth, Pro and Enterprise from each.

Further, VWO offers two pre-bundled packages – Experience Optimization Essentials and Conversion Optimization Essentials consisting of a combination of the above listed modules for convenience.

How are VWO prices determined?

VWO pricing is based on two factors – the volume of visitors on whom you wish to run tests and how you want to increase conversions.

As an example, if you are only interested in basic A/B testing to boost your conversion rates – you can opt for their VWO Testing module. The final pricing will then depend on the number of monthly tested visitors you wish to work with.

How does VWO count visitors?

VWO counts visitors based on a cookie attached to the user’s browser, which contains at least the campaign id. This cookie might also store other identifiers like visitor ID.  

These IDs offer unique identification. So VWO would not double or triple count a site visitor bucketed into an experiment, even if they visited everyday.

How does VWO’s blink protection work?

There isn’t a lot of documentation around VWO’s anti-flicker solution. The specifics of how the SmartCode takes care of blinking is vague. This is what the brand support articles say:

To counter flicker and ensure a smooth loading experience for visitors, VWO hides all the relevant elements before they start loading on the page and only unhides them once the VWO Smartcode has swapped them with the variation changes. All this happens within a span of 110 milliseconds on average. If the campaign had been configured using the optimal manner, the flicker effect would have automatically been taken care of by the VWO Smartcode.

What are VWO’s Javascript capabilities?

VWO offers a code editor for testers who want to dive deep and code up their own variants. Optimizers can use this code editor to apply Test JS/CSS and execute changes across the website, including all variations and the control. They can also apply Global JS/CSS changes to all their test pages (again, including the control). All VWO plans come with the Code Editor.

Which plans boast a VWO API?

The VWO API is organized around the REST architecture style and encodes data in JSON. It supports the basic HTTP request types of POST, GET, PATCH, and DELETE. If you are interested in doing more with the VWO A/B testing solution through its API, you need to invest in the Enterprise plan of its various modules.
