250ok

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.

Campaigner

We look for 2 things in an email campaign software: how detailed the reporting system is and ease of use. Both of these features are supported here. When I mention the reporting system, we need to be able to see who clicked on which links as well being able to pull their phone number or email so that we can then follow up with them. In all honesty I cannot see a situation where Campaigner would be less appropriate to use if you are looking for an email marketing software.

Campaigner

  • Number 1, is it's ease of use. We have not run into any problems where someone finds Campaigner difficult to use and this comes in handy every day. The more people that know how to use it the better because it reduces stress/buildup on others.
  • We love the reporting system here. We use the clicks and opens to follow up with people all the time so to have all that detailed information is very beneficial.
  • Customization is great. You can really make all your emails look exactly like they're pictured in your head.

Cons

250ok

  • Within the 250ok dashboard, there are a few different types of tracking and monitoring tools that aren't explained well within the product. Their uses were explained during onboarding but we continue to go back to the self-help to confirm best practices. I hope they work on more contextual help to improve this experience.
  • While the product does work if you have shared IP addresses, it took us some time after launch to filter out other's email data that get included during monitoring.

  • They one thing I would adapt is an easier use of columns. Sometimes you would like to have a column only go halfway down the page as oppose to the whole page but that can be worked around. There really isn't much I would change.

I can't see us not renewing unless we find something better. This is highly unlikely because there was a thorough research done for use to chose the best marketing client and it always came back to campaigner.

Why? Because it's so so simple. Teaching the rest of the staff to use it was a breeze and now everyone can create their own marketing campaigns. Not only that, nut they can also pull the clicks and opens on their own, lightening my workload for the better. It's awesome in every way.

Everything takes a minimum of 24 hours to solve and after being with campaigner for several years we were just told for the first time we have an account rep which we never even spoke to.

Alternatives Considered

250ok

After using Litmus for a few years, we enjoyed their feature set but were not pleased with price and feature changes. Email on Acid was a good choice for testing your email templates but didn't have enough features for email deliverability monitoring.Between Return Path and 250ok, we were interested in the whitelisting that Return Path offered, but could not get dedicated IP addresses required by them to move forward.

Campaigner

As I have used both I would compare campaigner most closely to Mailchimp, both offer an extremely easy to use and quick method of sending out email marketing campaigns and are both cheap. However, with all the simplicity comes the issue of not being robust enough and after doing trials and working with other companies such as Constant Contact and Zoho I would steer business that is expanding into those two.

Campaigner

  • Campaigner has cost us valuable time in the times that customers had complained to us that their unsubscribe emails did not go through and we had to manually go into campaigners website and manually remove those emails.
  • Campaigner has offered an easy way for us to send marketing emails for quick and effective usage.
