    Segment has made it a no-brainer to integrate with third-party scripts and services, and has saved us from doing pointless redeploys just to change the It gives you the granularity to toggle services on different environments without having to make any code changes.

    It's also a great platform for discovering SaaS products that you could add to your own – just by browsing their catalog, I've discovered tools we now currently use to augment our main product. Here are a few:

    • Heap: We use Heap for our product analytics. Heap's philosophy is to gather events from multiple sources, and then organize and graph segments to form your own business insights. They have a few starter graphs like DAU and retention to help you get started.
    • Hotjar: If a picture's worth a thousand words, than a video is worth 1000 * 30fps = 30k words per second. Hotjar gives us videos of user sessions so we can pinpoint problems that aren't necessarily JS exceptions – say, logical errors in a UX flow – that we'd otherwise miss.
    • Bugsnag: Bugsnag has been a big help in catching run-time errors that our users encounter. Their Slack integration pings us when something goes wrong (which we can control if we want to notified on all bugs or just new bugs), and their source map uploader means that we don't have to debug minified code.

    I've always been passionate about knowing more about how #UX the products that I'm building and have used a bunch of session replay tools in the past, tools like Crazy Egg Hotjar Mixpanel but i am developing affinity for FullStory. I find searching for events to be effective and fast. i live the ability to see when users are frustrated and also skip inactivity, it's pretty intuitive.

    I also feel that the creating funnels could be improved (like Mixpanel ) and also give recommendations about using your data tier more efficiently.

    One of the challenges we've had to deal with as our product surface area has grown, is identifying and reproducing bugs. We use Sentry for exception monitoring, however, it's usually difficult to try to reproduce bugs. I first heard about FullStory from our friends over at Flexport (check out the Stack Story and you'll hear them mention it: https://stackshare.io/posts/how-flexport-builds-software-to-move-over-1-billion-dollars-in-merchandise). FullStory let's you record user sessions, and play them back to help you identify bugs and UX issues. You're even able to view the console errors live as they happen during the sessions!

    We were pretty blown away at how comprehensive the product was at first, and it seems to be getting better every time I use it. Only complaint is that it's super expensive once you're in the hundreds of thousands of sessions so we had to stop trying to record logged out sessions, we only use it for auth'd sessions. We also started out using it via Segment but once we needed to watch out for the number of sessions we were recording we realized that it was impossible to restrict FullStory recordings on a per-page basis without ripping it out of Segment, so we ended up just using their JS snippet and putting that in the Rails views that we wanted to monitor closely.

    The ability to share specific portions of sessions, speed them up, skip inactivity, and all sorts of other little features all add up to a really solid product that helps both our PMs and engineers improve our own product much quicker. I officially requested a Sentry + FullStory integration a while back https://twitter.com/yonasbe/status/871987738777616384, still waiting on this! #UserFeedbackAsAService #reproducing-bugs #sessionrecording #bug-squashing

    We chose Webflow to build up websites faster and to make possible for particular employees to fix some misspellings or add an easy element to the page on their own - it is like Adobe Photoshop. To work with the incoming traffic we use our own product, that I can't pin here. It helps to make nurture visitors from the first session into the signing up and further activation into the product. In addition to @Carrrot we use Google Analytics to traffic source awareness, to monitor customers inside the product FullStory helps is a lot with its fury clicking and abandoned links. Activation and retention are done by our own product through the pop-ups, live chat, and emails that all based on customer behavior.

      Functionally, Amplitude and Mixpanel are incredibly similar. They both offer almost all the same functionality around tracking and visualizing user actions for analytics. You can track A/B test results in both. We ended up going with Amplitude at BaseDash because it has a more generous free tier for our uses (10 million actions per month, versus Mixpanel's 1000 monthly tracked users).

      Segment isn't meant to compete with these tools, but instead acts as an API to send actions to them, and other analytics tools. If you're just sending event data to one of these tools, you probably don't need Segment. If you're using other analytics tools like Google Analytics and FullStory, Segment makes it easy to send events to all your tools at once.

      Hi there, we are a seed-stage startup in the personal development space. I am looking at building the marketing stack tool to have an accurate view of the user experience from acquisition through to adoption and retention for our upcoming React Native Mobile app. We qualify for the startup program of Segment and Mixpanel, which seems like a good option to get rolling and scale for free to learn how our current 60K free members will interact in the new subscription-based platform. I was considering AppsFlyer for attribution, and I am now looking at an affordable yet scalable Mobile Marketing tool vs. building in-house. Braze looks great, so does Leanplum, but the price points are 30K to start, which we can't do. I looked at OneSignal, but it doesn't have user flow visualization. I am now looking into Urban Airship and Iterable. Any advice would be much appreciated!
