Likelihood to Recommend

7Sheep

We are a small team and are happy with the tool because of the simplicity. On the other hand I would not recommend it for large teams because of the very simple 7Sheep user management. 7Sheep is an online tool. So if you are used to workig offline look for something different.

AWeber

Aweber is particularly suited to small to medium businesses and organizations who need to manage their mailing lists and communicate periodically with their customers or members.Aweber is not particularly suited to agencies who need to broker and provide these services to multiple clients. It's mainly an end-user application.

Pros

  • Personal demo and helpful onboarding from the 7Sheep team.
  • Starting out with marketing our product, 7Sheep has become part of our daily processes.
  • Choice to host 100% in Europe which is highly important regarding data protection laws.
  • User interface and user experience
  • Segmenting
  • Follow ups

Cons

  • They need to just grow in their expertise
  • I wish there was a way to put opt-in sequences into a "test mode" so that someone like me can opt-into a list multiple times without having to go into AWeber and delete my record every time.
  • I think it should be really easy to have people added to multiple lists when they fill out a single form

Because it's affordable and really useful to me as a freelancer - I don't see that changing anytime soon!

While I was with the company, we renewed our use of AWeber. Over all it was easy to use and everyone in the office knew how to use it.

Usability

It is easy to use and if I do have a problem or question I receive an answer almost immediately.

See previous answers ... the design / customization interface could be more intuitive and elegant .. for example, for me it has been difficult to easily figure out how to place pictures / images to the right, left or center of text.

Support

I seem to always talk to the same person and they've been very helpful and given support where needed.

I have always received prompt phone or live chat support that has resolved my issues on the first call in a competent, knowledgeable and friendly manner. By contrast MailChimp offers no live chat or phone support; they only offer email support and the response time for MailChimp is slow by comparison to AWeber.

Alternatives Considered

As a partner agency for 7Sheep I have chosen them because it is the software that we as a consulting firm and the SMEs that we represent need.
MailChimp is cheaper for small lists and for dormant lists you can pay per email sent to lower your costs, but it's auto-responders are harder to set up and understand.InfusionSoft is the big daddy of the field and has extensive and powerful automation features, but you pay for that ability. It is an order a magnitude more expensive than AWeber. It also includes things you might not think are part of email list management, like shopping carts and extensive CRM tools.

Return on Investment

  • Saving time with lead generation from the website.
  • Tedious repetitive tasks could be automated, saving me time and money.
  • Increased conversion rate for outbound marketing.
  • Aweber has been a great way to introduce clients to the process of online marketing and publishing. Many of them have never used the web or email to truly nurture their customer relationships. The combination of dependable features and low price make Aweber a good "toe in the water" of internet marketing.
  • Aweber has helped my clients raise awareness of their products and services through targeted email campaigns and regular publishing. It's a great way to deliver coupons and special offers directly to a customer's inbox.
  • Awber has helped me teach my clients that a collection of names and email addresses is only worthwhile if you use it to communicate what matters to your customers. Many businesses collect contact information at live events or through other means, but rarely do they actually do anything with it. By using Aweber to reach out to their customer base, they are able to see through the analytics how valuable that conversation can be.
