7Sheep

I think 7Sheep is especially important for organizations who need flexibility in translating and adapting their communications for an international target group. Being able to send out mailings and set forms up in multiple languages is very useful and in some cases necessary. Also, 7Sheep is great if you want to track how people are responding to your mailings. For example, do they open the mailings? If so, what do they click?

HubSpot

I think HubSpot works well for small- to medium-sized businesses. It has a comprehensive set of tools that can run much of the sales and marketing automation that is needed for this size of business. I'm not as familiar with Marketo, Eloqua, and Pardot and other marketing automation platforms, but I like the value I get out from HubSpot. I also like all of the implementation partners that HubSpot works with who have been able to come in and help us with our marketing.

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.
  • Marketing automation with workflows
  • Powerful design tools
  • A plethora of sales tools which speed up the process

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!
  • Unless you know how to code, the design manager is difficult to use. While you'll be able to create a page, customizing it further will be difficult.

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

Our business relies on the HubSpot platform to manage our marketing, sales and CRM processes. HubSpot marketing automation helps us define our activities and streamlines them in a cohesive and efficient way. Without HubSpot, we will have to revert to the 'old way' of doing everything with a variety of disparate systems.

It is easy to use and if I do have a problem or question I receive an answer almost immediately.

Because there are so many different tools within HubSpot, you do need to spend time understanding each one before you can really get started. Though once you are 'on board' with the basics, it is easier to learn the more in-depth aspects of each tool and how they can work together.

We made a decision as an agency to only work with Hubspot. The software is easy to work with, and the support is very good

With all the new features in HubSpot, the system can get a tad slow sometimes... That said, most of the time it is lightning fast and I have no problems. Because most of the integrations are API, they silently work in the background. I have not had trouble with lag due to HubSpot integration

Support

I seem to always talk to the same person and they've been very helpful and given support where needed.

The Support team at HubSpot is awesome! They have tons of online support topics to peruse prior to calling, and they offer several ways to get support info (call them, request they call you, send an email). In addition, the Customer Success team is knowledgeable enough in the software to help with questions that aren't software-bug-related.

I did the 2-day classroom at HubSpot's corporate office in Cambridge. First off, it was amazing to see their corporate office in general. They have such a cool office environment. But it was also great to have the ability to learn in a workshop format with other HubSpot users and meet my Account Manager/ Inbound Marketing Consultant in person.

I started the HubSpot Academy and I did the online classes to get inbound certified long before purchasing the platform. The format is pretty simple: watch videos, do some workshopping, and then take a test to become certified. The classes are very informative and generally do not take too long to complete. Also, part of your implementation fee includes an Inbound Marketing Consultant who helps set up your first campaigns.

They are great to work with. Typically, any issues are on the customer end.

Alternatives Considered

Better integration in our workflow and in our own application.
HubSpot is all encompassing with an amazing user interface. It's as simple as that.Update:We use so many tools that HubSpot has to offer. Before HubSpot, we were using an email provider with a separate service for landing pages. Not cool. Too many things were disconnected by too many different logins, and we couldn't keep track. HubSpot is not only a timesaver, but it keeps getting better and better as the years go by. I can't believe how much they invest in making their tools more customized for their users – and all from the customer's perspective. I have never had so much faith in a software, so much love for a company, and so much excitement for future releases. HubSpot is indeed all encompassing, and it's only going to get better and better. They are a trailblazer, and I look forward to seeing their future innovations!!

Scalability

While HubSpot initially, seven years ago, seemed built for SMBs it appears they have scaled their solution for larger enterprises. I do not have experience sending out 10 million-plus emails per month so I don't know how HubSpot would handle that. However, I do know that some other marketing automation platforms have had trouble with such scale. As such, I suggest HubSpot have one of it's enterprise customers share data on the length of time it takes to send out 1 million emails. Are we talking minutes, hours or days? Then decide what's right for you based on your business needs.

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.
  • We get crazy amounts of leads. Offering downloadable content allows us to capture names and emails as prospective clients are interacting with what we produce. My team never had that capability before HubSpot.
  • We are able to nurture our leads easily. Sure, it takes a little while to set it up, but once the email followups are put in place, we are able to sit back and focus on other priorities while workflows nurture our leads. It's really exciting to see the interaction with those emails and change them as needed.
  • We launched our website Monday - today is Friday. Since then, we have already seen triple the leads come in (and good quality ones!!) from the restructure. The website add-on was one of the best decisions in my career to date.
