Best among the rest – Our recommendations

In the list above, we’ve covered the top 13 free and paid A/B testing tools for just about every company’s testing, optimization, and personalization needs. While each of these platforms are great in their own way, offering testing, optimization, and personalization services, if you ask us, our recommendation drills down to only three platforms – Google Optimize, Optimizely, and VWO.

If you’re an organization that’s just entering the arena of testing and optimization and wants to take baby steps at the moment, then Google Optimize will best suit your needs and requirements. A product from Google’s arsenal, it’s been smartly and strategically designed to offer ease and infuse confidence in people stepping into the testing and experimentation sphere. 

Meanwhile, if you’re an enterprise-level business that’s majorly focused on driving results and doesn’t have a budget constraint, then we’d recommend you consider Optimizely for your testing and optimization needs

Using its robust A/B and multi-page experimentation tool, you can run multiple tests in parallel on the same page, and rest assured of accurate results. At the same time, you can also run experiments on dynamic websites, various dimensions such as ad campaigns, geography, and cookies, and even across myriad segmentation parameters, including devices, browsers, and campaigns. However, Optimizely does require much expertise and a fully dedicated experimentation team of product experts, marketers, developers, and designers to drive the vehicle.    

While Google Optimize is a free tool and Optimizely a high-priced one, there’s one tool that covers the middle ground and serves as an ideal tool for all types and sizes of business. VWO is a full-suite CRO tool, quite similar to Optimizely, but doesn’t carry the enterprise price tag. 

With VWO, you get qualitative and quantitative research tools, a visual editor to build experiment variations (without coding), and advanced targeting and segmentation options. You can easily target audiences in a way that you can simultaneously run multiple tests on the same page and get error-free results as well.

Hush Blankets, a Canada-based company, used VWO’s A/B testing tool to optimize its website experience and conversion rate. It used VWO services to find frictions on two of its most important pages – cart page (mobile) and product display page for Hush Classic (desktop). It revamped the two pages using VWO”s visual editor and ran an A/B test for 15 days. The exces at Hush Blankets saw an uplift of 5.67% in their conversion rate (visits to checkout page), further a 33.15% uplift in checkout rate and an overall revenue gain of 51.32%.

All-in-all, if you’re looking for a near-enterprise level A/B testing and optimization tool that’s user-friendly and comes at a fraction of the price compared to its counterparts, VWO is your go-to tool.
