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.

Lead Liaison LMA

The only thing for me that was missing was the contact management capability. My clients are small businesses so my needs would be different from a Fortune 500 company. I found them to be extremely insightful into my needs and uses of the system. I discussed my current clients and they offered suggestions as to how the system would be beneficial to them. Which turned out to be correct, by the way!

Pros

  • Sporadic mailings to my clients via the e-mail campaign feature. I create personlised HTML emails with the visual editor and schedule them to be sent during the day when I am on the road.
  • After initial contact with new clients I setup a series of timed emails to stay in contact. Based on flags I have in the system they are automatically adjusted.
  • Existing clients get automated emails after certain events like visits or deliveries.
  • I often get in touch with support to ask for best practice examples and they are always helpful.
  • The company has AWESOME customer service, which, regardless of how great your product may be, without good cutomer service, I'm not interested for myself OR clients.
  • Implementation
  • Ease of use

Cons

  • I know that they are working on a simpler way to send a test e-mail to yourself. This will streamline my activities as well and I look forward to that system change (which was suggested by a client. I have also suggested improvements which have been implemented.)
  • I miss an easy unsubscribe feature (like you get in MailChimp). Overall, 7Sheep's system is more flexible (good) but that does make it more complex to split up (not so good).
  • Setting up the SPF record in our DNS system was flexible and easy but for DKIM integration we had to contact the 7Sheep support. They do not check or show the necessary records in the tool. Customer service was great, though, so not a very big problem, just a bit of a nuisance.
  • Would be nice for a note section in the contacts OR a complete CRM within
  • Honestly, at this point I could not make any "worthy" suggestions I am happy thus far!

One item you did not ask, but should be in around customer support. They do a great job of working with you, training and ongoing questions. Lead Liaison is always available and easy to get answers. The dashboards are great to gain business trends. The social media management is easy and a great way to ensure content is being tracked. The ability to gain tracking code for additional tactics. Our team enjoys the easy access and useability. We work with our clients to make sure they have a tool that we can use to scale for their needs. Lead Liaison makes it easy for us to help clients understand that Marketing ROI is closer to their finger tips than ever before.

Support

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

Lead Liaison has tremendous support. I''ve never gone more than a hour or so without a response. They are quick to understand my request, review the options for solution and deliver the best option with the best outcome. Also, the good part is that I don't need support all the time because the product is so easy.

Any issue with the adoption of the product were on our end. I wish we had the band width to run faster so we can know more faster. Our team enjoys the dashboards and ease of using the product. I know our clients are appreciating the results of the information as well.

Alternatives Considered

It offers the email marketing solution we need with addition!
We were poached from a competitor where we were getting 2600% ROI. This was a bad business decision on our part. Lead Liaison promised the same level of visitor identification with many more extra features but it never stacked up. After 12 months we actually did not see a return on investment greater than the original investment. Conversely the competitor has seen a 1700% ROI just in month 1 upon returning to them. So having using Lead Forensics before and after using Lead Liaison it's clear what the variable is.

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 have not had a return on investment.
  • The opprotunity cost is estimated to be 10% negative hit on our revenue purely on measurable sales, not including lost time.
