Posted in News on
baseball_infographicimage

With the MLB World Series fever in full swing, it’s a good time for online sports marketers to tap into the craze and increase online sales and bookings. The top 5 MLB teams make for a collective valuation of $8.2 billion with the New York Yankees right at the top with a massive $2.5 billion valuation. If you look at the annual spend of Americans on sports each year, the number touches an eye-popping $25 billion. Even the number of baseball tickets sold each year in the US is just a quarter shy of a billion. Yet, most sports websites have a conversion rate of 1%. That means, for every 1,000 visitors coming to the website, only 10 end up buying. That’s some massive waste of the traffic! In this infographic, we share the secret sauce of successful marketers and what you can do to increase your online sales and bookings.

Update 25th June 2014 7pm IST: With the new version of VWO, we have now given an option to mask experiment names and variation names. Update 5th June 2014 11 am IST: It looks like Optimizely is planning to fix the issues that have been identified – particularly they will allow exclusion of paused and draft tests from test settings. We’re glad they responded quickly to this. Gaining trust of businesses by fixing such issues will be good for A/B testing industry at large, and that was our original intention. In the comments below, people mention that knowing what tests are running is possible using VWO as well. As we write in the article, it’s by definition possible for all A/B testing tools. What is not possible from the VWO test settings code right now is to know what tests are planned or what tests were conducted in the past…

We Doubled Our Business In One Year

hamster-happy

First, the good news: Visual Website Optimizer recently surpassed 3000 active paying customers. This customer base spans 80+ countries around the world and includes brands like Microsoft, Groupon, AMD, GE, and Disney among others. Our pet hamster is giddy with happiness about this milestone. Now to the back story. What changed in one year? A year back, we celebrated the milestone of 1600 paying customers and moving into a newer, bigger office. It had taken us more than two years to hit that milestone, and since we’re a bootstrapped company, a large customer base, an expanded team and a bigger office meant a lot for us. Today, we’re even more proud because we achieved more last year than what we have been able to do since the beginning of the company. Take a note of things that have changed in past one year: Our customer base grew from 1600 to…

A/B testing idea repository

The engines at Wingify are always running at full steam ahead. Visual Website Optimizer is getting better all the time (even though sometimes the changes are not immediately visible). Here is what’s new! The A/B Testing IdeaFactory We regularly get email from users who’ve hit a testing roadblock.

With 2500+ customers, an epic journey has just begun at Wingify

Hamster says: download our presentation!

Oh well, how the time passes. I distinctly remember the first day I decided to do “something” in the online marketing space and hence begun hunting for the perfect name. After numerous variations and tweaks, I finally settled down on a domain that sounded just fine and inspired joy and enthusiasm. The name was Wingify and the date it was registered on was 9th November, 2008. I was 21 years old then. Fresh out of college, I was naive and had very little savings. What I had instead was an insuppressible itch to do “something of my own”. With many startup attempts during college, I had tried curing that itch, but with each failure, the itch only grew stronger. So when I was thrown out in the real world, Wingify came into existence as a boilerplate “project” to cure that itch. Wingify – early days (June, 2011) Fast-forward to the…

Second year in a row: 9 award winning A/B and Multivariate tests

Posted in News on
Rasmussen College

WhichTestWon is a website that features results of A/B tests and visitors can vote which version of a page won. This gamification of A/B tests has resulted in a huge community built around the website and the active discussions after each test are a testament to that. At the end of the year, they conduct the Online Testing Awards, where they select A/B test entries deemed most useful for marketers and optimization specialists. Last year during the Online Testing Awards 2012, Visual Website Optimizer was the A/B testing software used by 9 award winners across multiple categories. The smashing bit is that we’ve repeated the performance this year too! Visual Website Optimizer is the testing tool used by 9 award winners in the Online Testing Awards 2013, more than any other tool that participated. The thought process and reason for these awards is something that we completely agree with –…

Visual Website Optimizer now integrates with ClickTale

Posted in News on
ClickTale

Being a young company, we know that focus is extremely important for Visual Website Optimizer. For that reason, the tool currently focuses primarily on A/B and Multivariate testing. While we’re always adding new features (Cross Browser Previews were rolled out last week to all our users and before that it was A/B testing for Mobile and Responsive websites) we understand that our users’ success is enabled by a combination of first class tools. Therefore, we’re always looking to integrate with applications most in-demand by our customers. Today, we’d like to announce that Visual Website Optimizer now integrates with the leading Customer Experience Analytics tool, ClickTale. While you could always view heatmaps and clickmaps of your variations in Visual Website Optimizer, the integration with ClickTale will allow you to view recorded sessions of each A/B test variation seen by your visitors using ClickTale’s Visitor Playback feature, along with the ability to filter…
