Here at IWD, we’ve been big fans of Adobe products for years – including the very popular Adobe Analytics platform.
When it comes to this powerful platform, one of the most common questions we get is, “How much does Adobe Analytics cost?”
The Price of Adobe Analytics (It Depends)
First, Adobe Analytics isn’t free, and it doesn’t offer any kind of free demo version to try before you buy.
That’s a common misconception because Google Analytics does offer users a free version, many of whom never have any reason to update to the premium option, Google Analytics 360, which starts at around $12,500 a month.
Fortunately, Adobe Analytics costs quite a bit less – though it’s still extremely powerful.
Note, we recently compared Google Analytics and Adobe Analytics if you want to see a head-to-head comparison between the two. Even though both are great, we give a slight edge to Adobe Analytics – assuming it’s within your budget.
But is it?
Let’s take a look at the costs…
How Much It Will Cost YOUR Company to Use Adobe Analytics
Adobe Analytics’ pricing is based on how much traffic your site gets.
For many companies, this could be as low as $2,000 - $2,500 a month.
However, if you’re looking for analytics for a larger business – like an enterprise – you could easily spend upwards of $100,000 a year on this powerful platform.
That might seem like a lot, but there’s a reason Adobe is such a well-respected brand amongst businesses of every size.
Is Adobe Analytics Worth the Price?
In a word: probably.
While it’s definitely more expensive than Google Analytics, it’s not SO expensive that it’s reserved only for Fortune 500 companies.
It might not be a good choice if you’re currently bootstrapping your startup, but if you have the revenue to handle its monthly price tag, the many features of Adobe Analytics more than justify its price tag.
A Short List of What Adobe Analytics Brings to the Table
Definitely check out that breakdown we just linked to, but if you’re in a hurry, here are some of the biggest reasons you’ll absolutely love what Adobe Analytics can do for your business:
- Real-Time Data Processing
