"Great tool for A/B test"

What do you like best?

As a Marketing Analytics A/B testing is part of your every day live. Few tools that I have used in the past are as good as Adobe Target when it comes to doing tests on your site. The interface is so user friendly and getting data is both quick and easy.

What do you dislike?

Maybe this is not an universal issue but on my personal case it tends to fail when I try to use Google Chrome. The site doesn't render properly or things aren't save etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If money is not an issue is a no brainier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Adobe to improved our site by creating A/B test to test changes on our sites such as content, images, design etc. Test are easy to set, use and report on it. That's the biggest benefit from this tool. The data seems to be accurate and it is really easy to export the relevant information to Excel and crunch the numbers you need.

"Drag & Drop A/B Testing For Simplified Tests"

What do you like best?

Its drag and drop for a lot of the basic tests you'd like to do so they learning curve for the basics isn't bad. This makes the average user able to setup tests quickly and get going with the tool. Also has decent integration with Adobe Analytics if you also have that. Additionally it has some capabilities for site personalization to change parts of the site based on user actions, analytics and segments which is powerful depending on your data set.

What do you dislike?

When you want to do more complicated tests across a variety of page elements or with complicated goals it can make it hard to use the drag and drop tooling. I often have to include custom scripts and css to the pages which requires development assistance so plan for that staffing need if you want to complicated testing. Not necessarily a knock on Target, but as with all A/B testing you have to really understand setting up your goals correctly so you are getting valid results that are meaningful. Not comparing apples to apples can screw your results up quickly. We may also need to buy the Premium version to get all the segmentation and personalization we want.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider testing other lower cost options. If you just need drag and drop without any tight integration with Analytics and aren't already in the Adobe ecosystem there are plenty of worthy competitors as far as I've seen.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We wanted a solution that integrated tightly with our existing Adobe Analytics package and could provide us with both A/B testing, but also personalization. A/B testing has uncovered some gems for us already, but we have only scratched the surface of personalization and may need to get Target Premium to get all the personalization options we need and want.

What A/B Testing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great tool for online personalizations"

What do you like best?

Ease of use is very good, everything is UI based and not very high level of coding is required. Business users can also use it for personalizing their websites. Visual Content editor is very good and allows customizations on website in WYSWYG.

What do you dislike?

Integration with DTM is manual as if you want to use at.js, manual configuration is required. In Adobe Launch this has been fixed though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great personalization tool. However, its real power can be seen when you have Marketing Cloud integration, i.e. you have Adobe analytics/Adobe Audience Manager and Adobe Experience Manager.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Website personalizations for known and unknown visitors, personalization reporting, A/B testing. Its a nice tool which needs very less dependency on IT/Developers. Basic knowledge of HTML/JS will do and most of the things are UI based so no coding required.

"Better than most, measurement could be improved"

What do you like best?

If you are already using Adobe Analytics for your web site optimization tool then you should use Test and Target for your A/B testing. The significance calculation in the reporting UI is very nice and gives you a quick visual if the test reached significance.

You can have more than one test running at a time which is nice.

What do you dislike?

The pricing structure with Mbox calls kinda makes sense but is different than other platforms like Opitmizely. The reporting and setup of the campaigns needs to be improved, especially when it comes to setting up the KPIs for a given campaign. The fact that you have to create a segment first and then apply that segment to a given KPI, vs just assigning what you want in the KPI is still confusing to me and confusing to most people. There should be an out of the box integration already with T&T and Analytics and vice-versa

Recommendations to others considering the product

You need to have a dedicated team, not just part time folks, that are only focused on testing and optimization. You must have a marketing person, an analytics person, and most importantly a tech/dev person who knows how to write the html or js code to get the tests up and running correctly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basically its an optimization engine. Does experience A work better or B....don't know, test it real time with real people using Test and Target. It make marketers rely on data and not intuition.

"Simplifying content testing"

What do you like best?

Adobe Target is so easy to use it has simplified my life and streamlined my workflow. The mobile app optimization is crucial since a majority of content these days is consumed via smartphones. Its so much easier than other work around mobile optimization tricks I've resorted to in the past.

A/B testing is super easy and the targeting is part of the process! No need to build your targets outside of the platform and add it in later. Can't tell you how happy this feature makes me. Customizing segments is seriously useful as well.

The amount of data feedback : Reporting and analytics give the depth and breath I need.

What do you dislike?

If you are a non technical person, it may be little difficult to use at first. I would also have appreciated a post-hoc segmentation capability. Also its not very intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Adobe Target does give insightful results to help improve user experience and performance but make sure you have technical staff that is adequately trained in order to fully maximize the potential of it and leverage its capabilities to benefit your operation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Targeting audiences and building strategic fundraising campaigns. Deploying emails for clients. This is way better than other glitchy programs we previously used.

"Adobe Target can solve your advance personalization needs."

What do you like best?

Adobe Target is easy, fast and quick to implement on even the most complex websites. Built with UX/UI to ease digital marketing to create experiences from AB testing to Recommendation testing. You can now integrated Adobe Target with all Adobe Marketing Cloud products using the Adobes Visitor Service ID.

What do you dislike?

Adobe Target can cause timing and delay issues if experience is too heavy to load. Also, Adobe Target requires initial setup and licenses for other Adobe Marketing cloud products to get full use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Provide the best user experience and the customize their journey on the site in order to impact goals in a positive way. Looking for a fast and simple solution to help optimize user experiences with data being collected from analytics

"Easy tool to set up A/B and multi variate testing"

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is to set up the variations, either A/B testing or Multi Variate. The tool is very robust and the reporting is quick and easy to see. I like how easy it is to see how the test is going and whether one variant has reached significance.

What do you dislike?

Adobe has allowed many features and almost too many options that it can be a little cumbersome when setting up testing. It took some of our development resources to just set up some of the targets for testing. I have experience with other tools like Optimizely that have much easier implementations and ease of use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The tool is really good with solving the problem of solutions to test and optimize websites.

"Adobe Target Is My Weapon of Choice"

What do you like best?

Adobe Target has an extensive system for targeting and measuring content. From multivariate to landing page testing, you can compare experiences and determine the result all in one platform. Adobe Target has some easy to use out of the box features which can be deceiving. The product can pull of some advanced statistical modeling to underpin the tests you launch.

What do you dislike?

The deeper features of Adobe Target can be a bit challenging to learn. The best Adobe Target implementation involves a team of Business Analysts, Statisticians, and Developers.

Some companies may find Adobe Target price prohibitive. It can be an expensive system to implement and maintain. You should closely consider the potential ROI for a platform this powerful. Every company that I have seen properly utilize Adobe Target has realized a great benefit.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Since Adobe Target requires input from several disciplines, make sure you have the proper team in place prior to implementation. If you don't have staffed experienced in Adobe Target specifically, I recommend hiring a competent outsource that can help you setup your system and train your staff. An Improper implementation or underuse of this product can be a large waste of resources and money.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Adobe Target mostly for multivariate testing (comparing user experiences and layouts). Because I can launch user experiences into production based on segments that we define, I also use Adobe Target for personalization and optimization.

Organizations use Adobe Target as a proof of concept for proposed site changes and as a rapidly deployable way to test campaigns and promotions.

"User Friendly Solution But Keep Your Dev Team Handy"

What do you like best?

Their UI is friendly and much improved over the previous iteration of their product (Test & Target)

What do you dislike?

Despite the elevator pitch that your marketing team can execute A/B testing without involving your dev team, it's often not entirely true.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Implementing a testing/targeting solution is a huge undertaking. You not only need resources to implement, you need tech resources to handle ongoing tests, marketing teams with skill in launching and interpreting test data, and a company receptive to feedback that what they are doing might not be working.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Developing internal understanding about what site layouts perform best

"It is a decent product for creating targets for your page views & website."

What do you like best?

I like that I am able to specifically able to create a goal that I want for my page views to increase. That is one of the better features of the site.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that it does not offer a large variety of options for digital targeting (or maybe I haven't figured it out yet). I think that Google currently offers a better way to track conversations, target demographics, and analytics. I wish that it would add more features like this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am going to my clients with more information and statistics for their websites that I know not every company is giving them, and I think this tool is not widely enough used so it is differentiating me in the field of design currently.

"Target creates the demand for a technical role for Marketing"

What do you like best?

Because of the popular testing solutions are now moving towards 'drag and drop' type of campaign set up, it moves away from a need to have a technical person in marketing (specifically for optimization).

I like how Target would still need a technical role to maintain the tool and it still keeps the demand for a technical person, like myself, within Marketing.

What do you dislike?

The slow run time of the tool. My company has a lot of mboxes. Target needs to accommodate big companies that do so.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You need to learn jQuery, CSS, HTML to get maximum benefit.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Optimize and Learn our online business. The benefits is it helps my company out to measure valuable insights on our business.

"A quick look at Adobe Target from a data perspective"

What do you like best?

1) The best feature in my opinion is the quick implementation of any ideas/wireframes that have already been designed on the platform.

2) It is very easy for non-data/technical users to learn after a few introductory sessions

3) The ability to cross certain things between Target and other products in the Adobe Suites

What do you dislike?

1) To take advantage of the full capabilities you have to implement it with SiteCatalyst - implementing the two is not an easy process, even though they are both made by the same company.

2) Data discrepancies between Target and SiteCatalyst - they contribute to metrics differently and numbers may be off between the two

3) Slow load times that can affect data pulling

4) User interface will occasionally reset after you have selected multiple options from the drop down menus

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are considering buying Adobe Target then I would research what it actually is and ensure that it will do everything you need it to do. If it won't then I would recommend looking into other Adobe products to see if they will fulfill your requirements. It is important to ensure that you know which products you will need before you buy one and not the other.

After buying it I would recommend you immediately watch training videos on it to ensure you are using everything it has to offer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using it for web analytics where it has the benefit of quick implementation of ideas already placed on the platform. Allows marketers to take control of a portion of their development work and not rely on another team.

"Content targeting experience using Adobe Target with Adobe Experience Manager"

What do you like best?

We have used Adobe Experience Manager with Adobe Target for content targeting and testing for our managed websites. Target has helped the business stakeholders identify content options most viewed by certain visitor roles. This has provided important inputs in campaign targeting and content placement on the website

What do you dislike?

Business stakeholders needed support from Marketing IT folks and Adobe services to correctly configure the product and content templates along with the integration with Adobe SiteCatalyst for getting the correct reports for analysis of the configured business cases. This went into iterations before we saw light at the end of the tunnel.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The product needs business and technical skills for implementation of end-to-end business case. Technical skills include web technologies like JavaScript, JQuery and HTML. For implementation need to have right hands on deck before kick off.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Business challenges

• Provide the right content options to the user based on his role

• Provide the correct content labels for navigation

Benefits:

• Most liked content options derived from the metrics

• Users spending more time on the website with easier access to more personalized content aligned to their interest based on roles

"Helpful software"

Adobe will be able to look at historical data to make predictions about how changes in the mix of marketing spend will affect overall performance. Adobe’s ability to cover the full “digital marketing lifecycle,” from making ads to managing the campaigns, measuring them, and making money.

What do you dislike?

Nothing! I like that it's easier for developers to build apps and for marketers to adjust the content without any coding work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're using Marketing Mix Planning and to allow companies to optimize their full range of online and offline marketing. That includes online display, search, and social ads, as well as TV, print, PR, and events. Adobe will be able to look at historical data to make predictions about how changes in the mix of marketing spend will affect overall performance: “It removes a lot of the guesswork.” Adobe will be integrating with the third-party data sources that customers choose.
