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?

Leanplum

For sending out a messages to all application users (without having them update) or at least quite a large number of them is one of the best uses for Leanplum. Customers do not update their software quite as often as developers would like them to. While Leanplum does track some data it does not track that metadata quite as well as some of the data systems out there.

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.)
  • The ability to send out a message to all of the users of our application at one time without an update to the store version, is one of the best features of Leanplum.
  • Targeting specific users and being able to tailor a message just for them. No need to send out a message to all users if the message does not apply to all users.
  • The meta data tracking of Leanplum is also very powerful for determining how and where to target the correct users for your upcoming applications or features.

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.
  • The web based dashboard is very hard to use and without extensive training, most people are not able to use it or could accidentally send out an unintended message to any or all users.
  • If the Leanplum code is implemented in your software without extra care and testing it can break your entire application and effectively destroy your application.
  • Leanplum can be very powerful almost too powerful that if you don't have a dedicated employee that can interface directly with Leanplum Engineers or focus their sole job task on supporting Leanplum; there isn't much use you can get out of Leanplum.

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

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

Alternatives Considered

A normal email client does not support automation.
I was not a part of making the decision to use Leanplum over its competitors.

Return on Investment

  • Spending less time on sending newsletters.
  • Optimised engagement with partners and the press.
  • Getting a full picture of all our donor and contact information.
  • Needed to train our team on using an additional software.
  • Needed to invest time for the integration of the 3 systems.
  • We are able to message our customers and let them know of an upcoming event in one of our applications and the data has shown that improves our numbers quite a bit more than just hoping the user will find the specific event that has been released.
  • The ability to taylor messaging to high end purchasers of "In App" content raises the amount of purchases by a user group that has proven in the past they will consistently purchase in game content when notified of it going on sale.
  • Internal Testing of Leanplum is a important part of using Leanplum as we had a situation where our application went out with Leanplum recently added to the software and something was causing the application to crash as soon as it was opened. Effectively stopping anyone from using our application. Leanplum was immediately turned off on this application after it was apparent it was affecting all users.
