7Sheep

As there are not currently any out of the box integrations with 7Sheep I would ask them to talk about the API and integrations - they can be done but it is best to ask for a timeline on this too. It will also be interesting to see when further integrations are offered - they had no set timeline for this when we spoke at the beginning of the year.

Autopilot

Autopilot is great for most email marketing automation, and is quite powerful with forms and when connected from your website. The Heads-Up features seem like a powerful tool if you want to focus on website engagement. I haven't done a lot with scoring and analytics, but I'm sure these features will continue to get more attention as the application is updated and improved over time.

Pros

  • Affordability: the only solution we found on the market that gave us what we needed at a price we can afford!
  • Flexibility: 7Sheep seems to offer enough flexibility in the advance features that we can customise it as we need.
  • It's easy enough for our whole team to be able to use.
  • Their team is helpful and supportive.
  • Email Campaigns
  • Drip Nurturing
  • Smart Segments

Cons

  • Would suggest to create the API token on request rather than have it automatically included in the account.
  • Moving templates we created from MailChimp to create templates in 7Sheep needed some care and attention from our side.
  • The flexibility 7Sheep offers can sometimes lead to us having to make decisions that other tools might make for us!
  • Modifications to live, existing programs can be a little tricky. Versioning would be nice.
  • Shape count numbers can be misleading to new users. Furthermore, these numbers make for unreliable analytics although the accurate alternative using smart segments gets pretty cumbersome.
  • Organizing campaigns can be a bit difficult since smart segments live within the Contact section and Journeys live in a separate section. Program folders might help this.

The tool serves our needs and we like the user interface. The few times we contacted support they were super helpful and responsive. When we asked for more integrations they confirmed the integrations we need (e.g. Hipchat) for the near future.

Alternatives Considered

A normal email client does not support automation.
Autopilot is great if you want a more visual and user-friendly campaign creator. Building journeys takes a minute to learn but a few weeks to master as there are a lot of extra functionalities that are possible. The AP support team is excellent and always answered all of our questions. If we need help, they will go above and beyond to help us understand best practices and helpful tips to get the most out of the software. If you need endless customizability, landing page support, or a complete marketing automation platform with all the bells and whistles, you should consider Marketo or Pardot.

Return on Investment

  • increasing customer engagement
  • increased ease to deliver multiple step marketing campaigns
  • fewer forgotten emails due to drip campaign automation
  • The investment is certainly less than other competitors, so it's an easy sell for smaller companies or a segment of a larger company.
