7Sheep

I use 7Sheep for marketing as a sales person. This works well for me as a single user. I do not think I could use the software together with my colleagues. Although we could have separated lists the access rights might not fit our use case. It has a strong marketing focus and cannot replace a full CRM system.

Drip from Leadpages

Drip is well suited for people who are working in an online environment where they are selling things online or want to send people personalized emails and forms based on web page visits.

Pros

  • Their support is fantastic - even helping me think through the logic of my campaigns with their concierge service and offering advice on how to save time. Their new online manual is excellent too. Very clearly written.
  • The flexibility of the 7Sheep form builder allows me not only to automate a lot of outbound marketing but I am also consolidating a lot of my communications activities in one place. This is great when handling a diverse portfolio of campaigns.
  • Being able to integrate our forms within our own website wipes out the need to create standalone landing pages: we save a lot of time and keep an integration and overview with this. Love it. (Our client feedback scores have gone up since we used 7Sheep as well.)
  • Slice and dice users based on different segmentation parameters. The ones I use include tags, assets they downloaded, customer fields (like location or company), webinar participation, etc.
  • Send broadcast emails regarding my campaigns. Editing is easy and kept simple, which avoids all the hardships you get when you try to beautify and design emails too much.

Cons

  • The terminology used is not always obvious to people who are not marketing automation experts, but it's essentially a personal learning curve - and 7Sheep does take user suggestions onboard and works to improve these things all the time.
  • Design flexibility already outclasses some of the other systems I have used, but even more flexibility/adaptability would obviously make my marcomms job even easier.
  • At the beginning, the wiki was a little too technical for me, when I just wanted answers to a "how do I make it do this" question.
  • It would be great to see Drip implement a simpler way to send emails at specific dates and times, for example, as part of a launch sequence.
  • The existing visual builder is good, but it's not as intuitive as it could be. Would love to see the UI reimagined and drag and drop functionality included.
  • Drip should have a tighter integration with Leadpages. At the moment they feel very separated, whereas they could feel like they're meant to be linked together.

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

Support

Based on 3 answers
With both chat and email support I have always had enough ways to get through to them! Their support is good, honest and most importantly supportive. They helped us set up and start using the tool when we got stuck. Moving from Mailchimp where there were some semantic lessons to learn and they took the time to help us get used to 7Sheep

Alternatives Considered

Better integration in our workflow and in our own application.
Compared to the heavyweight, Infusionsoft, Drip is incredibly powerful but much lighter weight. It's faster and easier to get a simple campaign up and running. The price is much more reasonable too. The only downside is the lack of drag and drop email builder that Infusionsoft has.In many ways, Active Campaign's lite plan does everything that Drip does and for less money. I prefer Drip's UI; it's better thought out and feels less buggy. It's a lot easier to create segments and campaigns quickly.Campaign Monitor was only a basic tool when I used it and has since grown marketing automation features. I find their email design-builder the most beautiful in the business, but their automation plans are less powerful than Drips for a lot more money.

Return on Investment

  • It allows me easier onboarding for my users.
  • I get less support requests.
  • I can manage emails and forms/questionnaires in a single application.
  • Drip's ROI for me is more in the time I save than income made. I can and have made similar income with other email marketing automation tools. I use Drip because I can get things set up and organized faster.
  • Drip does have great lead scoring functionality out of the box and I look forward to making better use of this in the future.
  • Drip also makes it easy to create simple workflows for things like cart abandonment; another thing we're looking to implement soon.
