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.

Emarsys

Emarsys is well suited to segment a customer base and help with communicating in a personalised and direct manner with them

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.)
  • Mail automation
  • Easy integration with most of the systems
  • Great account management
  • Easy to use

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.
  • The on-boarding process is not straightforward
  • It's not cheap

Alternatives Considered

We can synchronise our systems and also produce form letters.
We have two branches, one in New York and one in Turkey. At first we were searching for a company which can provide service in both countries but there was no company had branches in both locations. Emarsys pointed their USA references working with European accounts and they convinced us. Emarsys automation was meeting the requirements and account managers were super helpful

Return on Investment

  • increasing customer engagement
  • increased ease to deliver multiple step marketing campaigns
  • fewer forgotten emails due to drip campaign automation
  • Email cycle ROI was around 4-6
  • With automation on customer survey collection rate increased by %10
