Tutorialize Alternative Option: Nickelled

Nickelled As A Tutorialize Alternative

Our honest review of Tutorialize

Tutorialize wins on simplicity - setting up an account and creating tutorials were enviably simple processes, with very little friction along the way. The design of the site is a little clunky at times, but it's hard to hold that against what's essentially a very rapid guide creation process.

We were able to create a guide using the simple drag-and-drop Chrome extension, and launching the guide looked simple enough - with Tutorialize's javascript library installed, a simple call would fire up a given guide on the page.

However, Tutorialize's simplicity is something of a double-edged sword. It's not possible, for instance, to edit a guide after it's been created, and more complex firing rules aren't available either. There's no way to add multi-page guides (that we could see) and although analytics are available, they're fairly rudimentary.

Tutorialize's pricing is clear and competitive, with the most expensive package topping out at just $59 per month.

This price band, plus the comparatively limited functionality of the service, suggests that Tutorialize is most suited as an entry-level tool.

When should I choose Nickelled over Tutorialize?

We recommend Nickelled for those who are looking for a robust, fully-featured user onboarding solution. While Tutorialize's features and price points will be suited to startups and those on a budget, we feel that they may be unlikely to tick the boxes for established companies where enhanced features, data or support is required.

Tutorialize requires a Chrome extension to create a guide and the installation of Javascript to view guides, which may not suit all users.

Finally, Tutorialize's pricing structure, which is based on views rather than guides, makes it hard to recommend for business which serve volume.
