7Sheep

As long as you know what you need 7Sheep for, then you will be impressed at how much it will do for you. If you only have a small list of contacts and only talk to them once a year, then you'll probably not need it - but if you are involved in any kind of communications/PR within multiple clients or multiple stakeholder groups, it will make your life a lot easier once you've understood how to work it yourself

Drip from Leadpages

Drip is my top recommendation for most people who have an existing business and audience and want to move beyond basic email broadcast and drip campaigns and start building out more personalized sequences. I don't recommend the tool for people starting out, or for anyone that isn't bringing in solid profit every month as there are cheaper tools out there to get started with.

Pros

  • Whenever we needed help their support was quick to guide us.
  • Contact form integration on our website was done via an embed code. We use WordPress and just copied the code on the page.
  • Aggregating our different contact lists from several systems was very important for us. We [now] have a comprehensive overview of our contacts and donors in a single online tool.
  • 7Sheep is a European company and also has its servers in Europe. Because of data protection laws this was key for us.
  • We can produce form letters straight out of the tool.
  • 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

  • A Wordpress plugin is missing. This could make it easier to install the tracking code and to embed forms.
  • A payment module. If we could get donations directly in the tool we would not need to integrate our payment software.
  • The templates for mail merge need to be integrated via the 7Sheep support. Would love to do this on my own.
  • Easier synchronisation features with other applications.
  • 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).

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

Alternatives Considered

We can synchronise our systems and also produce form letters.
Drip seemed more powerful in what you can do with it. ConvertKit was considered simpler to get a handle of, but I wasn't aiming at simple, but rather at powerful and flexible.The pricing matched my current requirements at the time and the onboarding process was simple and easy to go through.

Return on Investment

  • Automated lead nurturing is a huge time saver.
  • Using the same contact list for nurturing and the newsletter is reducing our administration.
  • Segmenting our contacts into the different business segments also makes my life easier.
  • 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.
