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?

If you use PRWeb already and are looking for a tool that integrates well with that program and offers additional functionality with email and social media then Vocus is great. If you don't use PRWeb or prefer an email tool with more functionality and ease of use, Vocus is not the best choice.

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.)

  • Social Media Listening e.g.: Recommendations, Identify influencers for a selected topic, based on actual influence, or number of reposts and/or references, rather than the number of followers.
  • Campaign Management - Landing Page and Web Form Templates
  • Email Marketing -Delivery Tracking and Spam Analysis

Cons

  • 7Sheep is used as a standalone software and not integrated in our intranet.
  • Setup of automated emails could be more visual to better see when which email is sent.
  • A helper library for API access would be useful.

  • For the campaign management feature, provide a campaign diagram to better track campaigns.
  • For the reporting and analysis feature, provide a scheduled report delivery option.
  • Provide podcasts as another form of technical support.

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

Vocus works very well for a variety of business sizes. It is also well-suited for both mobile (iOS and Android) and PC platforms. These reports are comprehensive:
  • Campaign Performance Reports
  • Email Performance Reports
  • Landing Page Performance Reports
  • Web Analytics
In addition, they also offer great technical support and a lot of resources such as white papers, blog, and tips and hints

With both chat and email support I have always had enough ways to get through to them! Their support is good, honest and most importantly supportive. They helped us set up and start using the tool when we got stuck. Moving from Mailchimp where there were some semantic lessons to learn and they took the time to help us get used to 7Sheep

Alternatives Considered

A normal email client does not support automation.

I was not the end decision maker so I went along with the marketing direction where we needed to consolidate all of our email into one tool to better understand all of our marketing efforts. I don't know that if I was the end decision maker if I would have chosen Vocus
