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.

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

  • 7Sheep's support is fantastic and they have been extremely helpful, whenever we have encountered issues or needed assistance, in particular when we first began using the product. They were great in helping us to customize everything for our use.
  • I particularly appreciate how easy it is to create queries and separate our contact lists. This aids us immensely with targeted communications.
  • The tags to personalize mailings are incredibly useful and save a lot of time.
  • I enabled text message campaigns within our account and it is really very simple, a very low additional cost and drives our personalized engagement further.

  • Ease and speed of getting out a PR release
  • Getting started with creating a new activity is just a few clicks
  • The ability to build a campaign and connect different emails, social media posts and PR releases in to one project with overall metrics.

Cons

  • The personalized tags cannot be accessed from the menu/page you create your emails. I get around this by opening two windows, but in the future this might be an improvement.
  • I needed to create custom reports in order to get the overview on the campaigns that I needed. More generic reporting would be a useful feature.
  • I would like to be able to duplicate e-mail campaigns across different activities/databases. I could set up a mailing template for this but sometimes it would be good to be able to just re-create a particular campaign that we received a good response to for another, entirely different, activity.

  • 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

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

Return on Investment

  • Automated lead nurturing is a huge time saver.
  • Using the same contact list for nurturing and the newsletter is reducing our administration.
  • Segmenting our contacts into the different business segments also makes my life easier.

  • Much more targeted email marketing. Spam analysis helped improve our overall email performance.
  • Increased customer engagement through social media listening.
  • Scheduled emails increased email open and click-through rates by 120%!
