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.

Hatchbuck

Hatchbuck is great for small to mid size businesses that are really looking to keep track of their progress with their sales leads as well as their existing customers, as well as tracking the activity their customers are taking from their communications, and automate their sales and marketing funnel as much as possible. We are a SaaS company (software as a service), with sales that range from teeny tiny to very big fish so it's been an easy tool to work with to make sure we are communicating with clients based on their size and needs.

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.

  • We love that actions the customer takes, like opening an email, clicking a link, etc. adds up to a 'score' for them. This helps us gauge the level of interest from a customer in one glance.
  • Their drag and drop email composer is easy to use and flexible enough to customize as we wish to align with our branding.
  • Automated campaigns are easy to setup and we love that we can add notifications to alert us when a customer takes a certain action (fills out a form, clicks a link, etc.)
  • We also heavily use their API to sync data and start campaigns, it's been a great way to automate as much as we can.

Cons

  • We use Joomla and a plugin would be great.
  • To get a perfect match for the look of our website we had to use custom CSS. Support explained us how to use this.
  • Planning campaings over time can only be done in a list view. A more easy approach would be great.

  • The product's social media integration is still developing and growing.

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

From the customer service to quality and functionality of the product I would be hard pressed to find a better deal at such a good price. Their culture is also all about supporting your marketing efforts by sending content on best practices for email marketing. I feel really supported by their team and product

Hatchbuck offers on-boarding, training, and has a suite of videos, which makes it super easy to get started. As with any software that is the key. Have a plan, stay focused, and get started. Once, you begin to play with Hatchbuck you will see that it is very user friendly.

There has never been any downtime for Hatchbuck, which is very reassuring for me as I market and recruit strenuously for the University at Albany's executive Weekend MBA Program. Hatchbuck team members have also been available when I have reached out to them with questions or issues. With one exception, where one of my e-mails became lost in the Internet "black hole," they have gotten back to me in very timely fashion!

I always get a response within 24 hours, unless I ask on a weekend. The team seems to work together to resolve my issues, answer my questions, and update me on changes. In fact, they have even connected [with] me to ask how they can improve the Hatchbuck software and their service. This is why I love them so much.

Alternatives Considered

Better focus on automation.
Dieter Weitz profile photo
I use HubSpot Sales concurrently with Hatchbuck as it offers capabilities not included with Hatchbuck: email tracking not from the system, integration with Facebook advertising, website popups.Hatchbuck was selected as an entry-level tool focusing on automation and CRM. Though it is not as robust as the full HubSpot system, it is substantially less expensive for a startup

Return on Investment

  • Saving time with my event being able to create auto-messages and also all of the badges.
  • Using templates I set up very easily with the template editor has given a more professional look and I have been complimented on it.
  • I get a lot more responses to my messages now that I send them out with the personalisation. We also are able to save a lot of time without using the mail merge in word and Excel.

  • On a ROI basis, Hatchbuck has helped me to better nurture new leads and to keep my current customers informed of my services. I've only been using HB for about 6 months but have seen a significant increase in customer and leads responses with several sales solely attributed to HB.
