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.

emfluence Marketing Platform

emfluence is good to use as a basic email marketing platform. I would advise that if someone would want very specific data from their email deployments, to look elsewhere.

Pros

  • When preparing an event, 7Sheep takes care of pretty much everything you need to select, inform, and register participants, as well as prepare materials for the events, such as name badges and signature lists.
  • We also use 7Sheep for reporting on communications activities.
  • 7Sheep allows you to build simple or complex forms and questionnaires which we use both for events and independent surveys.
  • The drag and drop HTML editor makes things look good without a lot of extra effort.
  • Custom landing pages to dive deeper into campaigns and track results
  • Responsive customer service with any problems we come by
  • A/B testing

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!
  • The email builder is hit and miss. Sometimes it brings in outside code, even when I paste text that matches the format, which loses us time and money.
  • More control of email templates, it feel as if it is over simplified.
  • Reporting lacks some depth in information and tracking specific users.

Alternatives Considered

Better integration in our workflow and in our own application.
It definitely does a better job for what we are doing for client than ClickDimensions, but Salesfusion is a platform that we ideally would like to use for all of our clients due to it's customization.

Return on Investment

  • Our two drip campaings make staying in touch so much easier.
  • A big plus is to have all contact data for leads and clients in one tool to use with newsletters etc.
  • Constant communication during onboarding can be a pain and this is now easier.
  • It's allowed for us to generate more traffic to our client's websites.
  • It's allowed for us to generate more leads from email marketing through emfluence.
  • Visual click maps, more customized dashboard and email templates, and a deeper dive in data would help further business objectives.
