250ok Inbox

250ok is a great tool for companies that have recently switched ESPs to monitor inbox placement or for companies that historically have been having email deliverability issues and would like to learn about the root cause and improve. Unlike ReturnPath, 250ok doesn't offer certification, but honestly, you don't need certification if you follow the Gmail/Microsoft/AOL/Yahoo bulk sender guidelines. I haven't seen a company which significantly improved their results with that certification and I've been working for one major ESP for 7 years. 250ok is a good diagnostic/monitoring tool but it is not a panacea for those who continue to violate sender guidelines due to poor list/content management.

Drip from Leadpages

Great for highly-skilled marketing technologists and people that have extensive dev background in HTML/custom application deployment. If you can think of an automation scenario, you can craft it from DRIP, but, you need to have the chops to execute the workflows. Always draft a workflow on paper, or outside the platform, because it can be hard to manipulate an active one, without adverse affects to current subscribers or contacts. Infinite options to customize via data tags from CRM, using LIQUID coding structure. The best Web, SaaS support team I've encountered -- it's like you have a consultant or team-mate, in-house, that specializes in automation platform technology, demand generation and inbound lead generation.

  • Simplicity + power. Drip is one of the quickest platforms to use in terms of setting up simple drip email sequences. Yet it also packs enormous power if you need to do complex automation.
  • Drip's direct integrations with other systems mean you can easily create hyper-personalized communications and anybody can set this up.
  • Drip's Javascript embed is easy to setup and great for helping to build deeper insights into customer behavior as well as triggering automation.

Cons

  • Documentation website could use some improvement (i.e. Search on the API Guide page, videos in the User Guide).
  • Can't copy/paste certain things from the UI (i.e. IP ranges).
  • Doesn't integrate directly with some ESPs although it's easy to just use new seed lists.

  • The service is powerful, so it times it is hard to know and decide where to start.
  • Having more templates and wizards for best practices in marketing campaigns would be nice (there are a few, but ones around automation and rules would help a lot).

Alternatives Considered

We use both 250ok and ReturnPath in the company (because we're an ESP) and both have their own pros and cons. Return Path uses panel data while 250ok uses recipients' engagement date for reporting. Both ways have pros and cons but you can't say one is better than the other. They're just different. ReturnPath also offers certification which (I have to be honest) is not as relevant anymore as there is only one way to fix deliverability issues nowadays - by following bulk sender guidelines posted by Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, Microsoft, and other ISPs. ReturnPath has a better documentation website while 250ok could use some refinement. With 250ok you can choose the tools you need and build your own package and save money. With ReturnPath - not so much. 250ok also has partners across the globe while ReturnPath mostly promotes its own services and consultants.

MailChimp and Constant Contact are both excellent options based on your level of use and business goals. When comparing all three services we looked at integration ability, pricing, functionality, and customer service as our key decision factors. Each company has their pros & cons however when using each system Drip just felt right. At the time we were also using Pipedrive as our pipeline management and the two already had integration ability making the sales cycle very simple from Leadpage to funnel. Upon switching to Salesmate for our pipeline management we again looked at the alternatives and decided Drip is the best tool for us

  • A newsletter service is mandatory in digital businesses. Drip covers that part for me.
  • I had used other services in the past and this is the one I am currently using and very happy with. Have no intent of switching at the moment since it fill my needs well.
