  2. It offers you multiple apps and features, so you don’t have to buy all those apps individually. For instance, it comes with a heatmap, A/B testing tool, funnels optimization, etc. You don’t need a separate split testing, conversion optimization, or survey tool using Freshmarketer.

Disadvantages of Freshmarketer

As any AB testing tool, Freshmarketer has a downside like:

  1. The price might be high for some of the smaller organizations.

There is a free plan, but it is too basic, and you won’t be able to use the best features. 

Moreover, if you want to switch to the paid plan, it can get expensive.

  1. Freshmarketer does not integrate into online survey management pages.
  2. It does not handle variant tests internally, and it takes time to segment the campaigns.

What is Adobe Target?

Adobe Target is an Adobe Experience Cloud solution.

It is an enterprise tool that combines targeted testing and personalization.

Adobe Target offers two features, A/B tests, and multivariate tests. You create test variations by selecting and swapping out, modifying, or dragging and dropping content. 

Moreover, Adobe Target’s self-learning algorithm associate visitor behavior and content to give you the best results.

Advantages of Adobe Target

Adobe Target has some admirable features, like:

  • Its reporting feature can tell you how many visitors have seen the particular experience, hits by the user on a specific page area, which country has the most views, the winner based on the report, and many more.
  • It provides both form-based and visual-based testing, which is suitable for developers.
  • You can create the audience that you wish to target. You can also categorize the audience based on the query string, country, region, and user Ids.
  • You can create as many experiences under a single activity, which helps analyze customer behavior more efficiently.
  • The WYSIWYG editor allows you to create experiments without coding skills. This is useful for UX people who are creative but lack coding skills.

Disadvantages of Adobe Target

As for the disadvantages of Adobe Target:

  • Support is a bit slow, often not knowledgeable about local installation – If you have critical processes, there’s little ability to escalate support without multiple calls.
  • While writing scripts in form-based type, the text area is minimal to write the code, so you might need to write on an editor then paste it in that area.
  • It does not capture revenue out of the box. You need to deploy an additional tool called Adobe Experience Cloud Manager to get conversion data. 
  • Editing an activity on a password-protected webpage can be tricky. This happens because it loads the webpage within Target; you have to sign in via the embedded frame and then get it to load correctly, which has been problematic. 
  • The software is costly. You cannot segment your tests or campaigns by geo-targeting, for example, unless you pay extra for that portion of the package.
  • The software is mainly centered around the “Target” portion of the product. Once testing completes, there are many options to push your winning campaigns live and target them to specific segments. Unfortunately, this adds to the expense of the software; you pay by impressions.

Pricing of Adobe Target

The pricing for the Adobe Target testing tool can estimate as follows:

Business sizePricing
Small BusinessesCan pay from $15 to $25.
Medium BusinessesCan pay approximately $50.However, some other products can reach $150 per user monthly.
Large BusinessesCan pay from $400 to $1,500 per month.
